Built in the tradition of the great 1920s Spanish Revival resorts, this manmade paradise is still in touch with Southern California's unspoiled nature
It’s less than 10 years old but this lavish, Spanish Revival resort (built in the style of 1920s architect Addison Mizner) has already become a San Diego institution. Locals flock to its five restaurants (dinner-only Addison is helmed by Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef William Bradley) as well as the Haim salon in its esteemed spa. Sporting types play golf at the on-site club while others lounge alongside one of the four pools, hit the hiking trails, or avail themselves of the resort's beach shuttle service. But guests don’t even have to get dressed to commune with nature—each of the 249 rooms has a view of either the golf course or the canyon.
