Situated on Park Hyatt Aviara’s lush 250-acre property, the coastal oasis is perfectly situated for guests to get lost in California’s idyllic scenery. The resort’s close proximity to South Carlsbad State Beach means guests can indulge in sunset walks on the sand and private cabanas on their oceanview pool deck. In between spa treatments, enjoy the resort’s 18-hole championship golf course overlooking Carlsbad’s Batiquitos Lagoon. The ecological reserve is home to the Batiquitos Lagoon Trail—a 3-mile loop teeming with flourishing fauna that wraps around the botanical wetlands. Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara guests can participate in guided hikes around the lagoon that focus on gratitude and connecting with oneself in the rawness of nature. Park Hyatt Aviara also supports Miraval Life in Balance Spa Aviara’s emphasis on sustainable living with its Aviara Cares program, which reduces environmental impact across the grounds.
