If you’re seeking an escape from the commotion of everyday stresses and responsibilities, look no further than North County. Your newest seaside escape awaits at The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa opening July 12, 2018.

Entering The Westin Carlsbad will feel like you’ve stepped into a Mediterranean oasis, where you’re welcomed with light, open architecture and lush botanicals. Leisure travelers will have found their safe haven. Guests traveling on business might even forget they need to work. This oasis isn’t hard to find either—nestled within the hillside bluffs along I-5, The Westin Carlsbad is minutes away from Carlsbad State Beach and Carlsbad Lagoon.

Over 200 rooms are located on the Westin’s luxurious property, 28 of which are exquisite suites that offer panoramic views of the Southern California coast. Each room is equipped with fully-functioning work desks, complimentary WiFi for SPG members and LCD TV’s fitted with Netflix and Hulu. You can make up for those binge-watching sessions by reserving a suite equipped with an in-room Peloton bike — perfect for guests who want to sweat in privacy — or by checking out the 24-hour WestinWORKOUT fitness studio.

“Westin’s focus on wellness programming seamlessly fits the Carlsbad lifestyle,” says Managing Director Chris Draper. And if you really want to treat yourself, then the Westin’s Ocean Pearl Spa is exactly where you need to be this summer. Relax and decompress in the eucalyptus steam room or pamper yourself with the spa’s other services including massage therapy, organic skincare, healing body treatments and nail care. Inspired by nearby Pacific Ocean, the Ocean Pearl Spa incorporates marine-based botanicals that purify, nourish and restore the body and mind.

But we still haven’t mentioned the best part! The Westin Resort & Spa will be home to leading Carlsbad restaurant 20|Twenty Grill, operated by Chef Eddie Zamora.

“We’re revamping the whole menu this summer,” says Chef Hakim, Zamora’s new Executive Sous Chef. While Chef Hakim didn’t dish on specific menu items, he did say their California coastal menu will feature local farm-fresh ingredients sourced from up to 20 miles away. This means that the menus will change frequently, so you’ll always be in for something new, fresh and delicious.

20|Twenty will also start serving craft cocktails on tap, in addition to their existing full-service bar offerings. Even if you’re not a guest at the Westin Carlsbad, you’ll want to drop by for Tapas Thursday, live music on Saturday, or any day for Happy Hour specials. 20|Twenty Grill’s expansive outdoor terrace has stunning views and fire features that make for a casual, yet elegant dining experience.

Looking for the perfect summer getaway? Now’s your chance to make your reservations for the new seaside retreat at The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa.
