    Hyatt Hotels & Resorts is delighted to announce the opening of Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, California, just north of San Diego. Park Hyatt now has 25 properties worldwide. A true California retreat, designed in the Spanish colonial style, Park Hyatt Aviara is set off by palm trees, expansive gardens, rolling hills, and views of the Pacific Coast. First opened in 1997, the resort spans 205 acres set on the northern shore of the Batiquitos Lagoon, which is one of California’s most precious, untouched wetlands with more than 130 species of birds and 24 varieties of flowering plants.

    Four restaurants, ranging from a poolside café, an airy bistro, a contemporary steakhouse, and an elegant dining room serving a regional Italian menu offer guests exceptional cuisine. All guestrooms are beautifully appointed and feature a marble bathroom with a commodious bathtub. Of the 329 rooms, 44 are suites and all rooms have a private balcony or a landscaped terrace.

    The resort is perfectly situated for active and leisurely retreats, as well as social mingling. A signature spa spans 15,000 square feet and includes 20 treatment rooms and fitness centre. A year-round destination for golf and tennis, the resort boasts an 18-hole championship golf course ranked as one of the top courses on the West Coast. The course, designed by Arnold Palmer, features exceptional practice facilities and a two-storey Spanish colonial clubhouse. Club-fitting and instruction are offered at the acclaimed Kip Puterbaugh Aviara Golf Academy and TaylorMade Performance Lab. The six tennis courts, managed by Peter Burwash International, include two clay courts and four hard courts. There are 78,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.
