loews-coronadoFour miles south of downtown Coronado and next door to the Coronado Cays on a private 15 acre peninsula is one of the best beach resorts in the country- Loews Coronado Bay Resort. This luxury California resort takes full advantage of the property’s scenic waterfront setting and offers an exceptional level of service, a full spectrum of guest amenities and superb cuisine.

The hotel has 439 rooms and suites, including four luxury Bayside Villas, which all offer views of the private marina, Pacific Ocean, Coronado Bay Bridge and San Diego skyline from private furnished balconies and terraces.

The resort has three lighted bayside tennis courts, three outdoor swimming pools including a much appreciated adult section, whirlpools, direct access to Silver Strand State Beach and a private 80-slip marina in case you are visiting the hotel from the water.

Among the resort’s five dining options is Mistral which redefines modern French cuisine with an innovative experience that delivers a remarkable journey of flavor. Master French Chef Marc Ehrler and fifth-generation French Chef Patrick Ponsaty, who has an impressive 15 Michelin Stars under his belt, blend influences from Europe’s Mediterranean coast with a refreshingly modern point of view. Signature dishes include: Steamed Santa Barbara Blue Prawn with Black Truffle Ricotta Cheese Cannelloni; Sautéed Wild Sea Bass with Orange Blossom Mousse; Farm Raised Chicken Breast “Sous Vide,” and Naturally-Nurtured Beef Tenderloin. The spectacular food and ambiance are completed with sweeping views of Coronado Bay, Pacific sunsets and the San Diego skyline hat stretch out beyond floor-to-ceiling windows.

Sea Spa offers an extensive menu of services in a 12,000-square-foot spa, salon and fitness center with traditional seaweed wraps and sea-salt scrubs; another favorite is the Voga Voyage, a unique experience enjoyed while cruising in an authentic 33-foot Venetian gondola equipped with two professional massage beds complete with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. The spa itself counts on fifteen luxurious treatment areas include a couple’s suite, four private outdoor rooms, a Vichy rain shower, an authentic Watsu pool, sauna, steam rooms and a tranquil relaxation lounge.

Spray Salon is a full-service Aveda beauty salon featuring a variety of cutting, coloring and styling services in addition to signature spa manicures and pedicures. One of the signature services is the Brazilian Blowout, the world’s most effective and innovative professional smoothing treatment. Favored by Halle Berry, Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie, the Brazilian Blowout improves the condition of hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle leaving hair smooth, healthy and frizz-free with radiant shine. The salon is open to guests, visitors and local residents alike.

Whether from visiting from afar, walking from next door or sailing to the property, Loews Coronado Bay Resort makes a perfect ESCAPADITA.
