Omni La Costa


San Diego, California. Technically, a place called Carlsbad in San Diego.

My Opinion

Nothing about the world of travel ever bores me. For 6 years now, everywhere I have been has surprised me with its creatively woven footprint that totally sets it apart in the world of tourism. Omni La Costa in San Diego is no different!! It’s like a mini metropolis of lush entertainment covered in a blanket of San Diego heat. You’re plunged into tropical gardens, more than 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor-plan event spaces, glossy lobby areas, and a playground of activities for adults + children. Amenities include: 2 championship golf courses, 17 tennis courts, 8 swimming pools, various boutiques on the premises, a Café + gift shop, a kids centre and – my favorite – The Chopra Centre which will indulge your spiritual curiosities. Their Classic cocktail menu is so appealing you could spend hours on vacation at the bar sampling its fruity delights. I recommend the Blood orange whisky sour. The large, spacious rooms which flow out onto green gardens in some suites remind me of their sister hotel in San Antonio, whose moody Spanish interiors I fell in love with long ago.

Fun Facts

In 1965, a real estate developer stumbled upon a lush valley that combined natural beauty with perfect weather: and the vision for La Costa was born. This year, Omni La Costa Resort & Spa is celebrating its 50th Anniversary with a look back at what has become known as “The La Costa Lifestyle.”- website

La Costa was originally conceived as a residential resort with activities and instruction for all ages. The 40 hotel units were available to guests for $22 per night which included green, tennis, stable and pool fees.
