Beaches, tropical gardens and Bali-inspired bungalows on a 44-acre island in Mission Bay
Spanning 44 acres over a private island in San Diego’s Mission Bay, Paradise Point Resort & Spa is an enticing tropical world of beaches, lush gardens and Bali-inspired bungalows. Bridges arch over serene ponds shaded by palms, rooftops curve wave like above the treeline and walls of windows open to let the SoCal sunshine in.
Bed & Bath
The property, which has been around since 1962, got a face-lift in 2010 in the form of a $20 million renovation. Seattle-based designer Andrea Sheehan delivered Indonesian-inspired flair with teak furnishings, bold artwork, hide-print rugs and a tropical elegant color scheme of coral, turquoise, chartreuse and gold in all 462 guestrooms and suites. Each open and airy ground-floor guestroom offers a private, furnished patio with garden, lagoon or bay views.
With a 7,500-square-foot spa offering an over-the-top menu of treatments and an intimate restaurant serving fresh seafood, this resort is ideal for a romantic retreat. But it also has all of the ingredients for family fun, including five pools (four for kids, one just for adults), wakeboarding sessions and stand up paddleboard excursions. There's also a fitness center, tennis and basketball courts and an 18-hole putting course.
In the Area
If you really want to, you can happily stay in-bounds for days here, but if you can pull yourself away, there's lots to explore. First stop Sea World, of course — the resort has a water taxi that delivers you straight to the park. Old Town San Diego offers interesting history, great food and shopping. Mission Beach is alive with boardwalk buzz, beach bums and Belmont Park’s Giant Dipper roller coaster. When it’s time to bid the day farewell, you can’t do much better for views than Sunset Cliffs in Point Loma. A 20-minute drive north, La Jolla is a well-to-do, charming and romantic place to while away an afternoon. Leave the kiddies back on the island.
