This month we shine a spotlight on the historic Hotel del Coronado, a place that is enveloped by the simple luxuries of sun, sea, and time together.
Across two centuries Hotel del Coronado has captured the hearts and memories of its guests. A living legend that continues to inspire, it’s a true San Diego icon.
Be transported into The Del state of mind.
For more than 130 years, The Del has celebrated its rich history as the proud host to celebrities, royalty, US Presidents, and beach-loving guests. In 1977 the historic beach resort was designated a National Historic Landmark. More recently, The Del has embarked on its next chapter with the completion of a $400 million transformation that preserves its storied past while creating new experiences for the next 100 years.
YOUR CALIFORNIA DREAM
From romantic escapes to family beach holidays, The Del has something for everyone. In fact, making memories in this magical beachfront setting has been a family tradition since 1888.
Here you can tuck your toes in the sand and gather around a private beach bonfire as you roast s’mores and enjoy spectacular sunset views or snuggle up on Del Beach to watch your favourite movies in a theatre under the stars.
At VOYA we are inspired by the 300-year-old tradition of seaweed bathing, and work closely with our coastal communities to inspire change and bring forward collective action to preserve our oceans. It’s no wonder therefore that we are in awe of their Ocean Explorers ‘living classroom’ for children: an underwater aquarium where children learn about preserving the ocean and its marine life through fun activities and lessons inside the classroom and outside on the beach.
What’s more, if you have little ones who really want to dive into a whole new world of adventure, the DIVR+ Virtual Reality Snorkeling activity is the ultimate immersive experience. Guests can opt to explore the ocean, voyage through space, dive into the ruins of Atlantis or try a thrilling skydiving experience.
The Del is also perfect for romantic breaks, where you can enjoy sunset bonfires, surfside strolls and beachfront dining. There is of course also the option to explore the seaside spa and enjoy ocean-inspired treatments together on the edge of the Pacific.
SPA & SALON AT THE DEL
Relax in total serenity at the Spa & Salon at The Del, a coastal sanctuary that taps into the healing power of the sea.
All experiences at The Del are designed to soothe your mind, body, and spirit. Whether it is unwinding with a VOYA treatment, treating yourself to a day of pampering at the Marilyn Monroe-inspired Beauty Bar or simply retreating to the private spa terrace with a vanishing edge pool, you’re sure to relax in style.
In need of a double-action treatment that refines your skin’s texture? We would recommend the Organic Lavender and Seaweed Body Scrub. This body treatment features a wonderfully fragrant mix of lavender oil, seaweed and sugar to gently remove dead skin cells and the application of seaweed extract and lavender body cream will hydrate and remove dull skin.
If you are looking for a treatment experience unlike any other, try the Seaweed Leaf Wrap. A truly detoxifying therapy that uses real organic seaweed leaves to scrub and wrap your body, the treatment tones and firms your skin while helping against the signs of ageing and cellulite. Beginning with a seaweed body buff, the body is then wrapped in seaweed leaves, before finishing with an application of lotion using seaweed, Aloe Vera, Lime, Mandarin, and Plum Seeds to nourish and soften the skin.
Alongside your treatment, you can enjoy access in the relaxation lounges, spa terrace, and oceanfront spa pool.
