Offering a premier coastal location, Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa was designed to offer spectacular views of the Pacific, not only from many of its 215 guest rooms, which average 415 square feet in size, but also from its 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space. The resort’s stylish Chandler’s Restaurant & Lounge offers the coastal regional cuisine of acclaimed international chef Pascal Vignau, while the 5,600-square-foot Ocean Crest Spa offers an environmentally mindful spa experience inspired by the healing powers of the sea. A full menu of spa treatments features the use of pure and organic products, with a focus on those derived largely from coastal California plants and growers. The resort’s large pool is surrounded by a vibrant coastal desert garden of palms, succulents, and grasses enhanced by a children’s splash pool and outdoor fire pits. hiltoncarlsbadoceanfront.com.
