Abundant Luxury at Omni La Costa

Abundant Luxury at Omni La Costa

Apr 24, 2018

The word ‘omni’ is the root of a great many words in the English language. From Latin, it means ‘all, every, the whole’, and can be attached to both ‘omnis’ and the more simple root: ‘op’. Abundance. Wholeness. What a magnificent pair of adjectives to describe a weekend away. Omni La Costa Resort and Spa takes those adjectives very seriously, as well as the root word they came from. An all-inclusive location in gorgeous, sun-kissed Carlsbad, California, the property has everything one might need for a girlfriends retreat, family vacation, or romantic getaway. You name it, Omni provides it: all within easy reach of long beaches, popular tourist attractions, and just thirty miles from San Diego International Airport. It’s all there: luxury omnipresent.

With upwards of 600 rooms on-premises, Omni La Costa has exactly what you need for a good night’s sleep, and an abundance of in house amenities to make your stay more comfortable. Choose from a variety of guest rooms, or upgrade to a villa. From vibrant hues matching the championship golf courses to the deepest blues of the Pacific: relaxation made thoughtful. A plush bed all you need? Look no further than the elegant furnishings in each room. Close to the centre of the hotel or overlooking the golf course, or even upgrading to a room as expansive as the views it offers, no ask is too great.

La Costa QQIf you’re more interested in turning your weekend away into an athletic adventure, the world class golf and tennis, athletic club with yoga, pilates, body sculpting, spin, and zumba classes, or even the mind expanding exercise of meditation and the rejuvenative properties of the Carlsbad Spa offer guests the chance to up their fitness game and recover in style. Customize your day with an early or late start, and surrender stress, whatever your routine may be, with a facial, massage, aromatherapy consult, or salt soak before your mani/pedi.

Resort EntranceEat up at VUE, where fresh, local, earthy fare, craft beer and fine wine abound. Featuring creative dishes inspired by the magnificent “vue” of northern San Diego, the restaurant has a unique selection of cocktail options to offset its morning favorite: daily pancakes and a chef’s calendar or Benedicts over a sunrise breakfast. If you’re not an early riser, check out the all day menu for a long lunch, or family dinner. Also on-site? Bob’s Steak and Chop House, where the mission is simple: prime steaks, big pours, exceptional service. Bob’s tees up on simple elegance and lively atmosphere and hits a homerun every time.

VUE PatioI know when I’m headed out for a relaxing weekend, the last item I want to look at is a calendar, yet, Omni La Costa’s weekly events download is the best resource out there for adding some unexpected flair to a luxury weekend. Headed to the resort with your best girlfriends? Perhaps a spin class is just what you need to get going. Have the kids in tow? Kidtopia Kid’s Club is just the thing. A full and rotating list week-to-week gives you just the amount of flexibility needed to feel untethered yet still occupied. If the kids’ need a bit more on their plate, perhaps the mention of the resort’s Splash Landing Pools will do the trick.

VUE breakfastOur kids literally lived at the pools - where they spent several hours plunging down the two 100-foot water slides next to the family pool. Splash around in the water play area or wade into the Splash Cafe, where sandwiches, salads, cocktails and sweet treats await each hungry family member. Eight different pools, cabanas, gazebos, heated garden pools and jacuzzis: even a sandy beach pool for the young ones. All-inclusive luxury was never so easy, or omnipresent.

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch

Take yourself out of the ordinary and spend a few hours in one of nature’s wonders; a place where kids can run and adults can linger. This 50 acres of extraordinary color is in bloom on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and offers a special nursery, garden, and gift shop by Armstrong Garden Centers in addition to festivals throughout the season.

California Water Sports at the Carlsbad Lagoon

There’s something for everyone here … if you’re looking for a relaxing time out on the water, they rent kayaks, canoes, peddle boats, aqua cycles and standup paddle boards (including kid-size kayaks and paddle boards). If you’re looking to add a little more horsepower to your visit, they offer a few different motorized options: a runabout, waverunners or a pontoon boat (that accommodates up to eight guests) that you are able to drive around the lagoon yourself.

The Omni La Costa Resort & Spa is located at 2100 Costa Del Mar Road in Carlsbad. For reservations, call (760) 438-9111 or visit www.omnihotels.com
