Expansions & Renovations

Renovations of Rooms, Public Areas, Meeting Spaces Completed at L'Auberge Del Mar, A destination Hotel

Vibrant New Guest Rooms, Meeting Spaces and Public Spaces Welcome Business Travelers

SAN DIEGO, CA. April 20, 2017 – L’Auberge Del Mar, A Destination Hotel, located in San Diego’s coastal North County region, has put the finishing touches on the renovations of its 121 guest rooms, public areas and meeting spaces, emerging with a fresh new contemporary look masterminded by renowned Los Angeles interior designer Barclay Butera.

According to Bob Harter, director of sales and marketing for L’Auberge Del Mar, “Our goal was to create a casual, beach-inspired ambiance that allows our business and meetings guests to unwind and revel in their surroundings. Our latest upgrades take a cue from the surf, sand and sun.”

The new designs, inspired by the hotel’s oceanfront location, have been redone with Butera’s characteristic modern beach flair – marked by clean, transitional “coastal chic” décor with fresh ocean blues and sea glass greens.

A centerpiece of the renovation is the more than 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, encompassing two ballrooms with terraces and six distinct meeting rooms.

According to Butera, who first redid the resort in 2008, the refurbished meeting areas are now in coastal blues, soft greens and crisp white. “We brightened and freshened up the décor while maintaining its existing look and feel.” Other meeting space renovation highlights:

· New glamourous light fixtures that offer a modern take on traditional chandeliers with hanging crystals that form circular, razor-shaped edges toward the center

· Custom golden hued, pebble motif carpeting is rich in pattern and texture and complements a variety of event décor

· Custom Barclay Butera wallcovering with a modern geometric design in neutral cream tones

· Large custom mirrors that add light, depth and drama

The meeting spaces and ballrooms connect to the overall hotel design, the newly redone rooms and public areas. Guestrooms and suites sport a calming backdrop of crisp whites and subdued neutrals accented by ocean blue, sea glass greens and soft sand hues setting the stage for layered details and textures such as infused damask prints, classic striped wallpaper and handsome stripe-style Oxford carpeting. Contemporary furnishings, bold modern artwork, bright white wood cabinetry and crystal lighting enhance the serene setting. Subtle geometric accents boost visual interest, while dark wood furnishings ground each room. Oversized accent pillows provide bold pops of color and pattern while natural fine touches such as seashells and coral further the surf feel.

The end result, said Butera are “comfortable and appealing spaces that ooze west coast chic.”

The renovations come on the heels of a recently announced partnership with acclaimed artist Aaron Chang, a photographer known for his colorful and dynamic surf and ocean images who is showcasing some of his most compelling works throughout the resort. Furthering the resort’s beachy appeal is a new live TV feed of the Pacific Ocean, which welcomes guests and anchors the lobby’s front desk area.

Hotel Spa: Measuring the Results
As the Hotel Spa and Wellness Movement continues to flourish, spa operations are seeking new and innovative ways to expand their menu of services to attract even more people to their facilities, and to and measure the results of spa treatments. Whether it’s spa, fitness, wellness meet guest expectations. Among new developments, there seems to be a growing emphasis on science to define or beauty services, guests are becoming increasingly careful about what they ingest, inhale or put on their skin, and they are requesting scientific data on the treatments they receive. They are open to exploring the benefits of alternative therapies – like brain fitness exercises, electro-magnetic treatments, and chromotherapy – but only if they have been validated scientifically. Similarly, some spas are integrating select medical services and procedures into their operations, continuing the convergence of hotel spas with the medical world. Parents are also increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of their children and are willing to devote time and money to overcome their poor diets, constant stress, and hours spent hunched over computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Parents are investing in wellness-centric family vacations; yoga and massage for kids; mindfulness and meditation classes; and healthy, locally sourced, organic food. For hotel spas, this trend represents a significant area for future growth. Other trends include the proliferation of Wellness Festivals which celebrate health and well-being, and position hotel spas front and center. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
