What seems like it's in the middle of nowhere, La Costa Resort & Spa offers an oasis of spa treatments, greenery on golf courses and five star cuisine in the middle of the hustle of north county's busiest street
Since 2001, La Costa has poured $140 million into a series of renovations, redefining the resort's California ranch-style motifs into a campuslike setting, with a 45-foot bell tower, white stucco walls, and red tile roofs. Rooms have been refashioned with leather headboards and beds trimmed in Egyptian-cotton linens, dark walnut desks, metal accents, and bathrooms with quaint pedestal sinks. A huge spa features 42 treatment rooms and neatly landscaped outdoor sunning areas, a sprawling gym, and the (Dr. Deepak) Chopra Center, with services and products relating to mind/body healing and transformation. The 400-acre property also boasts a 17-court racquet club and two championship 18-hole golf courses; the revamped golf clubhouse includes a state-of-the-art fitness center. BlueFire Grill, the stylish bar and signature restaurant, faces out onto a lovely plaza and has three distinctly different, chic spaces. Kids aren't overlooked here, either -- La Costa has dedicated areas for everyone from toddlers to teens, featuring both high- and low-tech entertainments; the resort's Splash Landing even has theme park-style waterslides and play areas. La Costa recently added 149 privately owned luxury villas, which are available for rent, as well.
Facilities: 5 restaurants/cafes; 4 bars; bike rentals; children's center and programs (age 6 months-16); concierge; 2 golf courses; health club; 5 Jacuzzis; 8 outdoor pools; room service; spa; 17 tennis courts (7 lighted); Wi-Fi (free in lobby and other spaces)
