The Lodge at Torrey Pines - La Jolla, California - Exclusive Luxury Golf Resort & Spa



Overlooking the world-renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course with distant views of the Pacific Ocean, The Lodge at Torrey Pines is a AAA Five Diamond La Jolla hotel located just 15 miles north of downtown San Diego.

This San Diego luxury hotel is situated on the cliffs above the Torrey Pines State Beach, and located on the 18th hole of the world-renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course, this breathtaking setting is home to this award-winning resort. The Lodge is modeled after the Gamble and Blacker houses in Pasadena, California, two of the best examples of early 1900s Craftsman-style architecture by Greene & Greene. Arriving guests are greeted at The Lodge's grand porte-cochère by doormen attired in kilted Scottish dress. Inside are 170 guest rooms including 8 suites, more than 13,000 square feet of indoor meeting and banquet space, a 9,500 square-foot full-service spa and two restaurants, including A.R. Valentien which serves contemporary California cuisine, and expansive public rooms with fireplaces, large mantelpieces, overstuffed couches, comfortable leather chairs and amazing views of the Torrey Pines Golf Course and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Behind The Lodge is a heated pool with relaxing poolside cabanas, whirlpool, croquet lawn, and a large terrace with chaise lounges for basking in the Southern California sun.
