La Costa Resort and Spa

Some resorts boast great golf courses; others claim the most wondrous of spas or restaurants and entertainment. There are resorts that lead the field in tennis instruction and facilities, or have the most technologically advanced meeting and conference centers. There is a place, however, that has all of these things -- La Costa Resort and Spa, the legendary "total resort" located in the heart of Southern California. Nestled in the foothills near the Pacific just 30 miles north of San Diego, the 479-room, 400-acre resort features the best the world has to offer in golf, tennis, a full-service spa, and fine dining.

La Costaís two magnificent golf courses have challenged the PGA Tourís finest players for thirty years as host to the Tournament of Champions. La Costa is now the site of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship to be contested again in February 2002. Complementing the resortís two golf courses are a grass driving range, sand, chipping and putting practice areas, an award-winning golf shop, and the acclaimed La Costa Golf School.

Tennis players will find La Costa a "Grand Slam" destination. The resort's Racquet Club boasts 21 courts with grass, clay and traditional hard courts, plus a dramatic stadium court amphitheater with seating for 1,200.

Renowned for its health spa, La Costa guests can enjoy the spaís amenities that include the use of saunas, whirlpool baths, rock steam rooms and Roman pools, excellent exercise facilities and classes, as well as nutritional programs. For guests looking to be pampered, there is a comprehensive menu of massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and a slate of European body treatments.

La Costa features four restaurants, including Brasserie La Costa, an award-winning dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner; Pisces, renowned as one of the areaís finest seafood restaurants; and the charming Ristorante Figaro, offering Northern Italian specialties.
