Weekend Plans: Escape to One of These Luxury San Diego Respites for a Much-Needed Staycation

Chandler Presson | October 29, 2020 | Lifestyle


These San Diego resorts are open and ready to host your next weekend getaway.

1. Golden Door

Known for its bespoke wellness experiences, this renowned spa destination recently reopened with even more offerings, including three new Japanese-inspired outdoor venues where guests can indulge in massages, facials, yoga and more. The seven-night stay model allows visitors the time and space to relax and restore. Try the Trainer package for an intense fitness reset, or the Land and Water package to enjoy plenty of hiking and pool time. 777 Deer Springs Road, San Marcos

2. Hotel del Coronado

A San Diego icon for more than 130 years, this famed hotel recently completed The Cabanas, a new on-site neighborhood featuring 97 oceanfront and poolside rooms, an additional resort-style pool and four new dining spots. Don’t miss the new Babcock & Story Bar patio, where picturesque sunset views await. 1500 Orange Ave., Coronado

3. La Valencia Hotel

For a cultural respite, head to La Valencia Hotel, where ocean views and old-school charm have been delighting its elite visitors (think Hollywood A-listers) for over 90 years. Dubbed the “Pink Lady” after the 1928 Spanish maiden tile portrait that’s resided inside for nearly 90 years, the hotel is now offering pool day passes for the first time in its history; a new weekend bubbly brunch featuring Veuve Clicquot; and the opportunity to book a room for the day via its Offices by the Ocean package. 1132 Prospect St., La Jolla

4. Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa

Situated on 45 secluded acres, this Rancho Santa Fe property instantly transports guests from SoCal to the Mediterranean. The Relais & Châteaux resort focuses on a holistic experience through its highly rated fitness and wellness programs. For the ultimate respite, opt for the all-inclusive Autumn Sanctuary package featuring a Valencia suite with a private outdoor soaking tub and fireplace, three meals per day, a one-hour massage and more. 5921 Valencia Circle, Rancho Santa Fe

5. The Cassara Carlsbad

This buzzy Carlsbad spot recently unveiled its Work, Learn & Play package, and it’s the perfect way for families working and learning from home to indulge in a weekday staycation—or shall we say workcation? Complete with a two-bedroom family suite featuring a built-in workstation and a private patio or balcony for panoramic ocean views, indulging in a weekday getaway has never been easier. Accommodations also include access to the hotel’s luxe in-room and property amenities—see you by the outdoor fire pits with a cocktail in hand. 5805 Armada Drive, Carlsbad
