Pines and the Fairmont Grand Del Mar
among the top-rated golf resorts.
“We can play golf 12 months out of
the year,” Sitton noted. “And we can offer
groups access to public courses and private
courses in four different microclimates:
ocean, desert, mountains and inland.”
Along the coast, L’Auberge Del Mar offers
easy access to the Del Mar Fairgrounds
and recently completed a renovation. As
a wellness addition, the hotel recently
launched a “probiotics break” for groups,
with housemade kombuchas, yogurts, kefir,
granola, fruit and chia.
For groups that really want to focus on
wellness, it’s hard to beat the resorts found
in San Diego’s North County area. The
Rancho Bernardo Inn features a renovated
golf course and a number of yoga and meditation classes designed for groups. Rancho
Valencia Resort & Spa in Rancho Santa
Fe recently partnered with Lifewellness
Institute to provide the Wellness Collective
series of workshops and classes.
In Carlsbad, the Omni La Costa has been
a top spa escape since 1965 and has served
as the home for the Chopra Center for
Wellbeing for the past 20 years. The resort
recently broke ground on a new ballroom
and lawn area.
At the Park Hyatt Aviara, the Aviara Wellness Academy can customize health and
wellness experiences in four areas: Surfing
with the Chef, Golf Academy, Tennis Camp
or a Vera Via health and fitness retreat.
“Carlsbad is a premiere wellness retreat,
with many options to focus on the mind,
body and spirit,” said Sam Ross, executive
director of the Carlsbad CVB. “Groups have
many options, from water activities in the
ocean to personally crafted experiences
that help focus on long-term better living.”
As with many wellness offerings across
San Diego County, the goal is not just to
add to the productivity and mindfulness of
attendees while at the meeting, but beyond.
“Carlsbad offers group experiences that
will far surpass just the time spent here,”
Ross said, “but offer learning and wellness
practices that can extend long after returning home.”
