The Experience

The Grand Del Mar San Diego

The Grand Del Mar is located in coastal, northern San Diego, just east of I-5 and surrounded by the pristine coastal communities of La Jolla, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. This new luxury resort destination is just minutes from San Diego’s renowned beaches, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, numerous restaurants and boutiques, and a short commute to Southern California’s top attractions and the San Diego International Airport.

After a hike in the canyon, a rejuvenating spa experience, or a day on the fairways, The Grand Del Mar’s luxurious resort accommodations are the ideal retreat. Decorated in an elegant, yet inviting turn-of-the-century style with dark wood furnishings, crown moldings, stylish fixtures, and a jewel-toned color scheme, each of the 249 lavishly appointed guestrooms offer commanding views of the golf course or the serene nature preserve.

San Diego’s newest resort also features 31 spacious suites, including a pair of 2,840-square-foot, two-bedroom presidential suites, 12 Palazzo Suites, five Veranda Suites and 12 Prado Suites. These expansive spaces are perfect for an extended stay with family and friends or a relaxing, ultra-luxury experience.

The imaginative chefs of The Grand Del Mar embrace the intricate craftsmanship of the resort’s stunning architecture and exquisite details, creating a fluid transition from place to plate.  Six venues offer a multitude of options from elegant fine dining and creative contemporary cuisine to casual poolside fare, gourmet espressos and cocktails with evening entertainment.

An extensive wine program, seasonal menus, Afternoon Tea, cooking classes with our executive culinary team, and events for oenophiles, epicureans and connoisseurs enhance the resort’s culinary offerings throughout the year.

Lounge poolside. Take a scenic hike. Focus on your wellbeing. Dive into the ocean… or the action. The Grand Del Mar is nestled in the heart of Southern California , drenched in year-round sunlight and surrounded by a wonderland of flora and fauna.   Endless options offer something for everyone – the active enthusiast, the spirited adventurer, the culinary connoisseur and the style seeker.

From pro-style tennis courts and an 18-hole championship golf course to seasonal cooking classes and an abundance of outdoor recreation in the 37 miles of canyon preserve trails, the vibrant activity of the resort will meet your every need for fun.

Retreat from the world and slip into a relaxed state at The Spa at The Grand Del Mar. Tensions and worries will melt away as you enter the 21,000-square-foot spa embellished in old-world elegance – soothing tones, crystal glass tiles, imported white Carrera marble and warm wood accents.

A masterpiece of dramatic elevations, diverse bunkering and lush fairways beckons at The Grand Golf Club.  San Diego’s only Tom Fazio-designed golf course winds through the rugged beauty of Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve – native chaparral cloaked hillsides and tree-topped ridgelines create a stunning natural playground.  Close enough to the Pacific to capture ocean breezes, this spectacular setting is washed in the quintessential Southern California glow.
