La Playa Carmel

Camino Real at 8th Ave., Carmel, California, 93921, USA

Fodor’s Expert Review

A historic complex of lush gardens and Mediterranean-style buildings, La Playa has light and airy interiors done in Carmel Bay beach-cottage style. Norwegian artist Christopher Jorgensen built this property's original structure in 1905 for his bride, a member of the Ghirardelli Chocolate clan. Rooms are small but comfortable; some have views of gardens or the ocean. Rates include a daily champagne brunch.
