La Jolla is known as “the jewel of San Diego” because of its beautiful beaches, world-renowned institutions, fine art, and restaurants. La Jolla is also home to one of the world’s top golf courses and San Diego’s premier luxury resort, The Lodge at Torrey Pines.
The Lodge at Torrey Pines is located right on the 18th hole of the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course. The South Course is a U.S. Open championship course, so it is a popular spot for golf lovers.
Getting a tee time at Torrey can be tough, especially if you’re from out of town. Luckily, there are preferred packages for hotel guests so that the Torrey Pines experience can be lived out to its fullest potential.
Golf isn’t the only reason the Lodge at Torrey Pines has been awarded AAA’S 5-Diamond rating for 12 consecutive years. The lodge also boasts an exquisite location, top-notch service, a heated saline pool, full-service spa, fitness center, croquet lawn, and a signature restaurant called A.R. Valentien.
The incredible dining options include The Grill and A.R. Valentien, which is known for its farm-to-table fresh charcuterie, tuna carpaccio, “chicken under a brick,” and a unique menu that changes daily.
The Lodge at Torrey Pines is also home to a number of culinary events, like the weekly Artisan Table and the annual “Celebrate the Craft.”
The Lodge has also received top marks from California’s Green Lodging Program. They minimize waste, have recycling programs, and work hard to protect the natural environment. They feel an obligation based on being coastal and being so close to the preserve.
The Torrey Pines State Reserve is one of the wildest stretches of land on the Southern California coast. Twice a day the Lodge offers guided hikes where visitors can see views of the ocean, sandstone cliffs, wildflowers, and the nation’s rarest pine tree: the Torrey Pine.
Guests can also take advantage of the complimentary Audi service, explore the La Jolla shores or visit a number of restaurants and high-end boutiques in the area.
