Best Hotels in San Diego
A residential-style resort that sets new standards for service and hospitality.
Nestled into a verdant landscape of gardens and swaying palm trees just 30 minutes north of San Diego, Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara is a smart choice for travelers seeking an upscale Southern California getaway in a resort setting. The hotel’s location makes it relatively convenient to reach the attractions of San Diego and L.A., but is far enough removed to feel like a real escape. Although the furnishings and décor are high-end, the sunny rooms, suites and fully furnished villas feel casually relaxed in a quintessential laid-back California way. All accommodations include stunning views of the mountains, golf course and lagoon, as well as luxurious bathrooms and Wi-Fi. Villas add the convenience of fully equipped kitchens or kitchenettes. Typical Four Seasons pampering includes concierge services 24/7 (there is even a surfing concierge), two pools, modern fitness centers and kids’ club programming. Adults can enjoy massages, facials and body treatments at the full-service Driftwood Spa, and Aviara Golf Club is less than half a mile away. A variety of house dining options range from bakery goods and gourmet coffee (Higher Grounds Coffee Shop) to farm-to-fork cuisine (Seasons Veranda). Two poolside venues and a chef's table are also available.
