Suite of the Week: Villa M at The Grand Del Mar
Mediterranean grandeur on the Pacific Coast.
Where is it? In San Diego, one of Southern California’s warmest, booziest cities. Who needs Greece when a temperate climate and lush foliage are accessible by a domestic flight?
The Hotel? Smack in the middle of Los Penasquitos Canyon Reserve, The Grand Del Mar isn’t some anonymous hospitality monolith—it’s a rambling, dusky-pink Mediterranean that happens to welcome paying visitors.
The Suite? Villa M is a suite so grand that it couldn’t be contained within the main building’s walls. Designed in the same Mediterranean style as the rest of the buildings, Villa M stands out for it’s prime location (overlooking Hole 17), top-tier materials (limestone, marble, and chestnut flooring) and it’s overwhelming accommodations, from chef-chosen wines, to floral arrangements to a private beach service that will ferry you (and your umbrellas, coolers, towels…) to and from the water.
The Selling Point? Villa M doesn’t just have everything you need to live—it’s furnished with every amenity you might need to live extravagantly.
By The Numbers: Unlimited golf, 9,000 square-feet, seven marble bathrooms, four King bedrooms, two floral arrangements, and a couple of personal luxury golf-carts. All this coddling comes at the price of $9000/night before taxes.
