Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa Celebrates 20th Anniversary with $26 Million, Property-wide Reimagination

Storied La Jolla retreat enters next chapter of excellence following multi-phase renovation

LA JOLLA, Calif. (February 20, 2024) – Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, an award-winning Noble House Hotels & Resorts property in the San Diego area owned by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, today announced the completion of its property-wide, $26M renovation and redevelopment as it celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. A nod to its heritage with historic touches masterfully blended with modern design, Estancia La Jolla’s refreshed experience includes elevated guest rooms and suites, a new lobby and pool complex and upgraded meeting and group spaces designed by the award-winning masterminds at EDG.

“Our 20th anniversary is not just a milestone but a launchpad into the future of Estancia La Jolla,” said Eric Jenkins, general manager of Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa.” This renovation represents our commitment to both our heritage and our forward-looking vision, ensuring we continue to offer an unparalleled guest experience in the storied La Jolla community.

Refined Luxury in Equestrian Inspired Guest Rooms and Suites
Estancia La Jolla’s redesigned guest rooms are a cohesive juxtaposition of then and now, elevating the property’s rich equestrian heritage with luxurious modern accents to complement a unique sense of place. Whimsical matte floor tiling inspired by Mexican encaustic cement tile and a color palette of earth tones and pops of color are complemented by rich wood furniture, finishes and textured fabrics. Banquette seating draped with leather strap accents recall early handmade saddlery and create space for gathering while stately guest beds boast old-world headboards with nailhead trim. Details including custom wall coverings, wood dressers and leather-fronted bedside tables add to the tailored feeling of each room, while technology upgrades like wireless chargers and enhanced entertainment through access to major streaming services further elevate the in-room experience. Bathrooms are tucked behind sliding barn doors and boast luxurious marble countertops, modern amenities, and new tile-lined, walk-in showers, with select accommodations offering spacious soaking tubs complemented by accents of hacienda-style design. Each room also offers a breathtaking view of the property’s enchanting botanical grounds with select accommodations boasting spacious balconies to bask in the Southern California sunlight.

The Trading Post Café & Bar: A Centerpiece for Connection
Estancia La Jolla’s expanded and reconfigured spacious lobby serves as the heart and soul of the property, offering a luxurious yet inviting setting for connection and relaxation. Blending rustic charm and warm sophistication, the space offers cozy fireplaces and an intimate outdoor patio complemented by the property’s signature lush landscape. The lobby bar offers a selection of small plates and classic cocktails with a twist that celebrates and elevates the flavors of Baja California and Napa Valley set to the backdrop of rustic elegance and live music. The bar will also host a regular happy hour and rotating Friday tasting activations that celebrate the best of San Diego. The Trading Post Café, an elevated casual concept, highlights locally sourced ingredients, including honey from the on-property apiary, and artisanal craftsmanship through a curated selection of coffees, teas, breakfast items and bespoke gifts.

Sunshine Meets Stylish Sophistication at The Palma Bar & Grill
Laid-back elegance, craft cocktails and flavorful bites unite to create the oasis known as The Palma, Estancia La Jolla’s entirely reimagined poolside oasis. Hacienda-inspired design with gentle earth tones and vibrant pops of color combined with the gentle SoCal breeze and sound of the whistling palms create the ideal setting for a day under the SoCal sun. Plush, luxurious cabanas complete with curated VIP packages add an element of luxury and exclusivity while a rotating calendar of events including weekend poolside sipping ensures a consistently vibe-forward setting.

Elevated Meeting, Group and Event Venues
Estancia La Jolla offers nearly 47,000 square feet of customizable indoor and outdoor event space that fits the needs of varying groups and event types. Ushering in the next era of excellence in group experiences, Estancia completed a floor-to-ceiling revitalization of its 6,864-square-foot La Jolla Ballroom, the grand dame of the property’s indoor venues. Upgrades including textured wall treatments, modern lighting and whimsical flooring elevate the space, which showcases timeless elegance while offering a vibrant, inviting atmosphere. The property also elevated its signature outdoor venue offerings with the revitalization of five existing lawn spaces and the addition of the 1,000-square-foot Mariposa Lawn, located adjacent to the Learning Theater surrounded by botanicals and lush greenery.

Earth-Positive Enhancements and Amenities
Estancia La Jolla’s lawn revitalization project has reduced the amount of irrigation required for grounds maintenance, thoughtfully elevating the property’s dedication to sustainable travel. As part of its corporate social responsibility efforts, Estancia La Jolla partnered with Alvéole to introduce an apiary to aid with native pollination and ultimately create a sustainable source of honey and an educational opportunity for guests. Estancia La Jolla is also home to herb and butterfly gardens that are open to guests, with herbs grown found in recipes at each of the property’s food and beverage outlets.

In celebration of the completion of the property-wide renovation, Estancia La Jolla has introduced its “Rediscover Estancia” package, complete with luxurious accommodations, $100 resort credit, complimentary parking and waived resort fees.
