It was a love of sport that first inspired La Costa's founders to turn a beautiful piece of the San Diego coastal foothills into a resort that would set the ultimate stage for championship golf and tennis in Southern California.
Founded in 1965, and almost as quickly, a who's who of the rich and famous flocked to the La Costa Resort and Spa to play the courses and courts, and to unwind at what was the first U.S. resort to offer a full-service spa. And although times have changed, the tradition of excellence continues to strengthen with every new guest.
A lush atmosphere echoes inside each newly renovated room at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad. Rich fabrics pop over a palette of blues, greens and terra cotta. Natural light pours through the windows that perfectly frame the stunning views beyond. And steps from your door, world-class golf, tennis, dining, and spa anxiously wait to welcome your arrival. It's simply the perfect respite while on a perfect Southern California getaway. Surround yourself in a private garden paradise with the signature La Costa Room. Escape with the family to the elegant and completely redesigned two-bedroom Family Suite. Step from the shopping, dining and picturesque beauty of La Costa's central Plaza into the spacious comfort of a two-room Plaza Suite, or enjoy the Spanish Colonial style and beautifully crafted details of our Junior Villa. Packed with comfortable charm, these and other San Diego accommodations each provide a distinctly unique experience. Your room is ready.
