CALIFORNIA
LA COSTA RESORT AND SPA
 
Nestled in 400 acres of valley between the Pacific and the sloping hills of Carlsbad, surrounded by its own golf courses and luxury private homes, this 474-room resort has welcomed guests since 1965. Well-known over the years for its sport facilities and world famous spa, the resort has received multi-million dollars of renovations and additions.
 
During the past few years a new spa, fitness center, shopping plaza, restaurant complex and Chopra Center were constructed, expanding and modernizing the resort’s facilities for the 21st century. All rooms and suites were renovated and redecorated as well.
 
Dining possibilities include a three-meal-a-day casual bistro, an upscale indoor/outdoor Grill serving California Coastal-style cuisine, and The Market Place featuring snacks and coffees to take away or consume on premises. In addition to 36 holes of championship golf, a driving range and golf school, sport facilities include 17 tennis courts, an 8,000 square-foot athletic club, a 28,000-square-foot spa with 42 treatment rooms and three swimming pools
 

Strong Points: Exceptional sport and spa facilities, as well as good dining options and health, diet and fitness programs.
