Beginning with the terra cotta brick-lined private drive, the sumptuous flora, fauna, and hacienda-style surroundings of Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa transport attendees into an equestrian-inspired oasis. Centrally located to San Diego’s premier seaside village of La Jolla, Estancia La Jolla and its charming grounds, salt-water pool, and decidedly enchanting spa are one-of-a-kind. Unveiling a sweeping transformation, sunshine and garden views abound from the resort's 210 well-appointed guest rooms and nearly 47,000 square feet of premier event venue space. 


Guest Rooms and Suites

Estancia La Jolla’s redesigned guest rooms are a cohesive juxtaposition of then and now, elevating the property’s rich equestrian heritage with luxurious modern accents to complement a unique sense of place. Whimsical matte floor tiling inspired by Mexican encaustic cement tile and a color palette of earth tones and pops of color are complemented by rich wood furniture, finishes and textured fabrics. Banquette seating draped with leather strap accents recall early handmade saddlery and create space for gathering while stately guest beds boast old-world headboards with nailhead trim. Details including custom wall coverings, wood dressers and leather-fronted bedside tables add to the tailored feeling of each room, while technology upgrades like wireless chargers and enhanced entertainment through access to major streaming services further elevate the in-room experience.


Bathrooms are tucked behind sliding barn doors and boast luxurious marble countertops, modern amenities, and new tile-lined, walk-in showers, with select accommodations offering spacious soaking tubs complemented by accents of hacienda-style design. Each room also offers a breathtaking view of the property’s enchanting botanical grounds with select accommodations boasting spacious balconies to bask in the Southern California sunlight.
