We know you don’t want summer to end, we get it! The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa heard your cries and wants to deliver you from chilly temps and pumpkin spice lattes. Located in San Diego’s Pacific Beach, it is tucked away along the glistening shores of Mission Bay. Set foot on the grounds of this island-inspired resort and you’ll instantly feel like you’re on a tropical vacay, one that you desperately need now that fall is on it’s way. Book any of the 310 rooms or suites and make room for some lovely libations, action-packed water sports and everything in between! We’re sure you don’t need any more convincing, but just in case, here’s a breakdown of six ways to extend your summer during your stay.

San Diego Endless Summer

Sunshine and Snacktime

Catamaran’s signature accommodations come with breathtaking views of San Diego’s Mission Bay, the resort’s lush gardens or the adjacent neighborhoods of Pacific or Mission Beach. Open the curtains wide and let that Cali sunshine pour in these Polynesian-style rooms, complete with Wi-Fi and 24-hour room service so you can stay connected to the outside world and your late night french fry cravings.


Socializing Never Tasted This Good

Mark your calendars! Oceana Coastal Kitchen is spicing things up with a Rum Social on Oct. 31 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. They’ve partnered with Malahat Spirits Co., who crafted a vanilla and cinnamon-infused rum exclusively for Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa. Try this special rum in one of Catamaran’s signature cocktails while you indulge on tasty small plate pairings and dance the night away as you take in that unbeatable San Diego sunset.


Get Pampered Like a Polynesian Princess

The Catamaran Spa’s offerings are inspired by South Pacific and Asian healing treatments such as the Lomi Lomi Massage or the Ancient Oceans Ritual at San Diego’s only beachfront spa. You’ll be one with the elements of the earth as the treatments feature organic marine and botanical-based products for a truly purifying experience.

Brunching and Boozing Among the Jellyfish

Brunching next to the 800-gallon aquarium filled with Jellyfish at their Sunday Champagne Brunch at Oceana Coastal Kitchen is an absolute must, even if you’re not a hotel guest! Every Sunday from 10 a.m.–2 p.m., sip champagne or mimosas while you nosh on the epic sushi selection, or their satisfying spread of fresh fruit, pastries, salads and antipasto.


Make a Splash With Water Sports

Some folks need a little adrenaline rush on their vacay. If this sounds like you, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Action Sport Rentals is located right at the resort. Rent equipment and take lessons for activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking and wake sports so you can fine-tune your sea skills. For those who like to stay dry, there are also bikes and Segways for rent so you can do some exploring.


The Happiest Hour

Envision yourself sipping a lovely libation among tiki torches, fire pits and tropical foliage. This tropical outdoor hangout is located at Moray’s Monday-Friday from 3–6 p.m., overlooking Mission Bay. Keep the island vibes flowing with a Moray’s Mai Tai, or go for local with the craft beers on tap. You might just start to forget that you’re not actually on an island!
