Summer Vacation: Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa

Escape to the West Coast this summer and indulge in unparalleled accommodations and rejuvenating experiences at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa in Carlsbad. Recognized as one of the “Top Resorts in Southern California” by Condé Nast Traveler, Park Hyatt Aviara offers an opulent oceanic getaway for travelers looking to relax, reset and escape the desert this summer. 

Resting on 250 acres of vibrant botanics and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Aviara foothills, Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa epitomizes the pinnacle of luxury. The AAA Five-Diamond resort recently underwent a $60 million renovation, transforming the coastal enclave into a more refined yet effortless space reminiscent of relaxed California living. 

Park Hyatt Aviara is just a short drive or flight from Phoenix, and its close proximity to the ocean offers guests breathtaking coastal views and convenient access to a variety of recreational activities, both on and off the premises. Families will also enjoy the resort’s Carlsbad location, with nearby attractions, including LEGOLAND and SEA LIFE Aquarium. 


Guests will be treated to the utmost rejuvenation during their stay, with luxurious and comforting accommodations awaiting in coastal suites. These private spaces feature lavish finishes, furnishings and breathtaking views of California’s southern coastline or the property’s lush gardens. Each suite offers a curated experience tailored to each traveler’s needs, whether they are seeking a family vacation, a romantic getaway or a golf retreat. 

For families, Park Hyatt Aviara has suites designed to provide separation and privacy, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable stay for all guests (furry ones included). The Premium Coastal Suite, as an example, offers a private oasis for families overlooking the Aviara foothills and Batiquitos Lagoon. This desirable space is furnished with a king bed, a separate living room with a sleeper sofa, a full primary bathroom and an option to connect to a room for an additional suite for the little ones.

Golf enthusiasts can relax comfortably in the 2,180-sq.-ft. Palmer Suite, boasting two bedrooms, a king bed in the primary bedroom, a separate living room, a dining area accommodating eight guests, three full bathrooms and three generously sized furnished walk-out terraces. Unique touches include design elements showcasing the renowned Arnold Palmer signature-designed Aviara Golf Course and a putting green on the patio. This signature suite also features a convenient kitchenette and connects to a secondary bedroom with two queen beds.

Park Hyatt Aviara boasts exceptional dining experiences that cater to every palate (including the hearty appetites of four-legged friends) with two signature dining destinations on-site: Ponto Lago and Pacific Point. 

A Baja-inspired experience, Ponto Lago offers a modern culinary setting with tequila- and mezcal-based cocktails, a show kitchen and coastal plates. In the morning, Ponto Lago serves an assortment of dishes, including light fare items like the avocado toast with grilled country loaf, avocado smash, pickled carrot escabeche, salsa seca, radish and cilantro; regionally-inspired mains like the baked huevos rancheros with scarlet runner beans, avocado, corn tortilla, salsa, Oaxaca cheese and pico de gallo; and an assortment of wellness juices like the Alkalize Cold Press Green Juice, with celery, kale, cucumber, apple, spinach, romaine, lemon and parsley. An assortment of teas, mimosas and coffees are also available to drink.

When the sun goes down, the restaurant dishes up fan-favorite items including a Ceviche Tour, a chef-curated selection of three ceviches (salmon, crudo and tuna); seafood paella with prawns, clams, the catch of the day, Spanish chorizo and aioli; and the hearth-fired free-range Iberico pork trio with Denver steak, St. Louis ribs and a secret cut charred with pineapple salsa. A Taste of Agave, wine and cocktail menus are also offered to wash everything down. 


Pacific Point is a more airy and relaxed spot to savor a bite to eat or indulge in a sip or two from the outdoor terrace or indoor dining room. The cocktail program blends seasonal ingredients with California flair, with highlights of the menu including Tealand Nights with Tito’s Vodka, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Cointreau, Thai tea and oat milk; Purple Haze with Purity Vodka, lemon, lavender and egg white; and Glass Slipper with Bacardi Rum, lime and lychee. Small and shareable plates can also be enjoyed at Pacific Point, including the local tuna poke bowl, wagyu burger and an assortment of items from the sushi bar. 

Pups will also be treated to a decadent meal with the Pets at the Park in-room dining menu. These unique offerings include a Pup Cup with whipped cream, Bacon Strips Yappetizer and the Pawsome Meal with brown rice, mixed vegetables and your choice of chicken or beef. 

When guests aren’t indulging in Park Hyatt Aviara’s culinary offerings, the summer vacation spot offers various activities designed to pamper, entertain and inspire guests throughout their stay. 


For those seeking a self-care day, the newly opened Miraval Spa provides a sanctuary of relaxation and rejuvenation, offering a wide range of award-winning treatments and therapies. The spa utilizes ancient and modern techniques with each experience, curated to renew the soul. One of the most popular treatments is Ocean Song—a tranquil sea wave with bespoke service crafted to reflect the beauty of the coastal scenery. The treatment begins with a refreshing rosemary sea salt exfoliation to invigorate the skin, followed by a warm soak in a tub infused with sweet birch and magnesium to calm the senses and relieve tension. Then, indulge in a luxurious full-body massage featuring nourishing sea elements to harmonize and restore balance. Finally, sway gently to the melodic rhythms of the sea and the resonant tones of a singing bowl, concluding this deeply centering ritual.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Aviara Golf Club presents an award-winning golfing experience amidst lush landscapes and stunning vistas. The resort’s pools cater to families and adults, including a family pool complete with sand dunes and a slide and an adult pool with private cabanas for serene relaxation.
