Loews Coronado Bay Resort is a seaside escape to a 15-acre private peninsula surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and Coronado Bay. As you enter the recently redesigned lobby, you are greeted by a magnificent grand staircase and a beautiful two-story chandelier of suspended glass. The floor of the lobby boasts a signature clock that ironically encourages you to lose track of time while savoring the seaside resort. Enjoy gorgeous views of the bay out of the floor-to-ceiling windows from the cozy living room-style seating. The resort boasts five guest wings for its newly renovated 439 rooms. Among these are a Presidential Suite, two Vice Presidential Suites, four Bayside Villas, four Hospitality Parlors and 25 Executive Suites. We invite you in one of their Bayside Villas as we prepare for, Setting the Table.
As you drive around the beautiful resort, you come upon their four Bayside Villas. Detached from the main resort, but still very much part of the Loews atmosphere, these villas are right at the water’s edge. As you enter the villa, you are met with a cozy living space complete with two sofas, chairs and a TV. From the living area, you can open the French doors onto the balcony where you are treated to breathtaking views of Coronado Bay and the Bay Bridge. Best of all, these views extend to the bedroom where you can enjoy the beautiful Coronado Bay from the comfort of your bedside. Add in the oversized bathroom with double sinks and a huge bathtub with a walk-in shower, and you are guaranteed the casual elegance of an oceanfront home experience with all the comforts of resort life. The decor is vibrant but calm and relaxing; never hurried. The walls and sofas are decorated in cool blues reminiscent of the ocean, and the accent pillows are soft yellows inspired by the sunset. Seashell motifs and beautiful terrariums with sand bring the beach to you, and shimmering silver accents in the room mimic the reflections from the water. Yellow and red flowers are the perfect addition to give a fall look to the room. Loews Coronado Bay Resort epitomizes the true Southern California lifestyle and brings you right to the sun, surf and charm you’d expect from a paradise in the Pacific.
Wake up easy and refreshed by ordering room service, expertly prepared by Executive Chef Nicolas Bour, for quality breakfast in bed. Take a deep breath of fresh air, listen to the relaxing sounds of the bay, and look out across the gleaming water. Chef Bour, raised working on an organic farm in New Brunswick, Canada by his French father and American mother, has an appreciation for simple farm-to-table ingredients. After leaving Canada for the United States, Chef Bour sharpened his skills in some of the country’s best restaurants, training under a succession of experienced chefs. Though he learned the concept of farm-to-table preparation first-hand from his parents, it was from these seasoned chefs that he mastered the techniques and workings of a professional kitchen. Using techniques and influences from the surrounding area, Chef Bour has prepared his take on huevos rancheros. A delicate sunny side egg set atop a crisp tostada, a perfectly ripe California avocado with a side of gorgeous yellow and red grape tomato pico de gallo topped with fresh picked micro basil from the chef’s garden make one delicious dish. Paired with a delicious spicy Spanish salami, russet potatoes, and fresh watermelon radish, this dish is perfect for that end of summer or early fall breakfast in bed. Chef Bour says, “Huevos Rancheros is the most requested item on the menu because people who visit us want to experience authentic Mexican food.” With a gorgeous location like this, it’s no wonder why Chef Bour loves overseeing all of the restaurants for Loews Coronado Bay Resort. He further explains, “I love working for the Loews Coronado Bay Resort because they make employees feel empowered to run it like our own business.”
