Hyatt announced plans for Alila Marea Beach Resort, its newest resort in the Americas, located in Encinitas, California. The new resort will join Alila’s current Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort, which is the only other resort in the Americas.
This latest announcement follows previous expansion in the Americas as Hyatt plans to add 200 new hotels across all of their brands including Alila, Andaz, Grand Hyatt, Park Hyatt, The Unbound Collection, and Miraval by 2022 to name a few.
Hyatt’s recent acquisition of Two Roads Hospitality allowed them to add several new brands under the portfolio, so I’m excited to see Alila continue to grow as a result.
Situated along coastal bluffs and overlooking Grandview and South Ponto Beaches, Alila Marea Beach Resort Encinitas will be a luxury oceanfront hotel with 130 guestrooms, including 16 suites. Expected to open in early 2021, the resort will offer an ocean-view restaurant with rooftop patio, a pool with pool bar and an infinity-edge hot tub, a luxury Spa Alila and spectacular wedding and events venues, all with panoramic Pacific Ocean and lagoon views.
Alila Marea Beach Resort Encinitas will offer a signature Spa Alila, as well as the Alila Experience, a series of uniquely curated moments that integrate indigenous nature, traditional culture and the local community for an authentic destination experience. Other health and wellness-centered activities for guests will include surf and paddleboard lessons, cycling, hiking and beachside yoga.
Additionally, the new resort will feature a roadside grab-and-go café along Coast Highway 101 to serve guests as well as the North County Coastal biking, jogging and beach-going communities. To welcome locals and visitors alike, Alila Marea Beach Resort Encinitas will also offer a bike valet, electric vehicle charging stations and a new, publicly accessible staircase and walking path, which will provide direct access to the beach below the resort.
As a reminder World of Hyatt members will earn an additional 500 bonus points each qualifying night as part of Hyatt’s latest promotion for their newest hotels, so be sure to check out the newest hotel openings to stay up to date!
