If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, an affordable staycation or an escape to a coastal retreat within proximity to the city’s most desirable destinations, check out The Cassara Carlsbad and its incredible Mediterranean-style decor. Nestled between San Diego and Orange County, the architecture and design of this newly opened resort eloquently displays quintessential California vibes. Here are six reasons to enjoy the breathtaking treasures of this luxury resort.
1 | New Addition to the Hilton Collection
The property originally opened as the Grand Pacific Palisades Hotel in 1999 but has recently unveiled a total redesign of the grand lobby and fully renovated guest rooms with coastal views. “The Cassara Carlsbad is a Tapestry hotel by Hilton, which is a newly launched brand of hotels that allow for the ‘weaving of a story’ (thus the name Tapestry) in their individualized themes by property,” says Chris Draper, managing director of The Cassara Carlsbad. “The Tapestry Collection includes a portfolio of unique and upscale hotels, all with their own individual spirit.”
2 | Ocean-Inspired Cassara Carlsbad
This exquisite resort offers breathtaking panoramic coastal views of the Pacific. Located in one of the most beautiful coastal communities in the country, booking a stay at The Cassara Carlsbad is likened to indulging in a splendid seaside European vacation. With the ocean just minutes away, guests can enjoy coastal activities like kayaking, surfing and deep-sea sport fishing.
3 | Carlsbad Flower Fields
Surrounded by natural beauty, this family-friendly property overlooks the seasonal Carlsbad Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch with over 50 acres of magnificent ranunculus flowers. This is interpreted throughout the hotel with help from an iconic Mediterranean shape found in centuries-old Spanish, Portuguese and Italian architecture and art forms.
4 | Dining and Amenities Cassara Carlsbad
Toast to the good life at The Cassara Kitchen & Bar, which takes inspiration from the giant tecolote ranunculus and floral grandeur to craft the Hibiscus Sour, the Paloma in Bloom and the Lavender Lemon Twist. With outdoor dining available, the resort also offers a full range of amenities, including BBQ grills and fire pits along the luxurious pool deck. You can also hop on the free shuttle to Carlsbad Premium Outlets for a day of shopping!
5 | Style and Charm Cassara Carlsbad
The luxurious and charming color palette of the property’s Mediterranean coastal style is sure to sweep you off your feet. The hotel’s airy rooms and suites are carefully decorated with natural colors. “Our brand new, modern Karlsbad Family Suites allow for comfortable accommodation for family travel. These suites feature a separate bedroom for the kids with a 32-inch, wall-mounted smart TV and a roomy master with a king bed,” Draper says.
6 | Hotel Reopening
The pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for the travel and tourism industry. Hotels and resorts are unveiling a wide range of guidelines to comply with safety regulations. All staff members have been trained on the new protocols determined effective by the CDC and Hilton. “The Cassara Carlsbad is actively embracing all of the Hilton CleanStay Program guidelines. All guests are required to wear masks when in public areas of the hotel. The staff works diligently to maintain the cleanliness of the guest rooms by cleaning and sanitizing thoroughly between each stay,” he says.
The Cassara Carlsbad is a perfect place to conduct business, enjoy family time and create priceless, heart-warming memories. There’s definitely something special about this place. But in order to genuinely soak it in, you’ll have to experience it for yourself. Book your stay today at this Mediterranean, family-friendly resort!
