Luxury accommodations perched high on a hill in Carlsbad with ocean and lagoon views.
This sprawling resort is the perfect destination for business meetings, golf-and-tennis getaways and fun-filled family vacations. With a series of low-rise Spanish Colonial-style buildings, it perches on a hillside atop Batiquitos Lagoon, a protected wetlands and bird refuge. The 329 plantation-style guest rooms and suites all open onto private balconies or landscaped terraces. The impressive 15,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art spa contains twenty treatment rooms, an indoor solarium, whirlpools, saunas and steam rooms. There are four restaurants on the property including a gourmet Italian restaurant, Vivace, which in addition to gourmet dinners, offers a lovely Sunday lunch. The stunning Aviara golf course is one of the finest in the country with great views. The Arnold Palmer designed-course meanders through the coastal rolling hills, dotted with native wildflowers, and feels like an enchanted garden. Families will love the Aviara Kids Academy for scavenger hunts, crafts, lagoon walks and more.
