Paradise Point Resort & Spa, A Destination Hotel Announces $24-million Transformation to be Revealed in May 2018

The beloved San Diego waterfront resort readies for a new era in may with full makeover to its breezy modern rooms.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (April, 2018) – Spring is ushering in a new look when Paradise Point Resort & Spa, A
Destination Hotel debuts its coastal cool aesthetic, marrying modern interior design with tropical island charm for which the Mission Bay resort is celebrated. The comprehensive project, which includes all 462 California bungalow-style guestrooms, is geared toward a new wave of San Diego travelers with eco-conscious, high-tech attributes and indoor-outdoor design that embraces the eternal playground spirit of Paradise Point.

Designed by the award-winning international firm Perkins + Will, rooms are decked out in new tile floors and quartz surfaces, while a palette of navy and white is brightened by citrus hues like lime and tangerine. Natural light floods through the fluid layout, setting the stage for luxurious California coastal décor like whitewashed headboards, rope tables and jute chairs. Sliding barn doors open to sleek new bathrooms with walk-in showers, bohemian porcelain tile floors and nautical wallpaper.

Further than the highly upgraded design finishes and new stylish furnishings, bedrooms were outfitted with new deluxe plush Sealy mattresses and bathrooms were completely gutted and rebuilt replacing fabricated countertops with apothecary style sink consoles featuring sleek quartz surfaces, iron framing and open concept shelving. Find new oversized showers with frameless glass sliding doors and polished chrome hardware in king rooms, and queen rooms equipped with new bathtubs featuring curved shower curtains for a more spacious experience. Bungalow kitchenettes feature deep set stainless steel sinks, sleek quartz countertops and new in-room refrigerators.

Additional room design details:

  • Energy saving lighting requires guests to insert room key
  • Multiple electrical outlets for well-connected business or leisure travelers including alarm clocks with USB ports and Bluetooth capabilities, and new Sleek 4K smart 60-inch high definition televisions
  • Nautical-chic references include artwork and geometric patterned pillows and rugs
  • Bathrooms feature Kholer eco-friendly, rain style shower heads providing low flow, water efficient fixtures
  • Additionally, all guestrooms have new entrance doors, a new RFID key system and new ventilation

“It’s the same Paradise Point, but chicer, more modern and family-centric with comfortable floor plans that embrace our laid-back lifestyle,” said Lindsey Amador, Director of Sales & Marketing. “The designers have captured a vacation vibe that is the essence of everything we do here.”

Programming is central to that vibe: There’s endless kids’ activities, bonfires with s’mores in 14 of San Diego’s rare remaining beach fire pits, sailing lessons, paddle boarding, Paradise Surf Academy, a full marina and mini-golf. And with the reimagined guest rooms comes the effervescent Bubbles on the Bay package, where guests receive 20 percent off accommodations in the newly renovated guest rooms and two glasses of champagne at Tidal with their booking.

The resort’s signature restaurant is newly helmed by Chef Andrew Reyes, infusing Pacific Island flavors into Tidal’s dishes. Having earned chops at San Diego hotspots Counterpoint and True Food Kitchen, Reyes knows how to maximize the region’s produce and seafood bounty. This spring, expect influences that are true to familiar tropical island ingredients and still in season here in San Diego keeping the dishes bright, flavorful, modern, yet approachable – hibachi-style Jidori chicken and banana-wrapped golden grouper are two tasty teasers. The spring menu will be featured alongside the popular Sunday Brunch and daily Happy Hour offerings. Nearby, the easy-going Barefoot Bar & Grill, is a local favorite for its panoramic bay views, casual coastal cuisine and Sunday Funday. Renovation details are under wraps, but the bar is expected to expand in the iconic waterfront location.

Meanwhile, a forthcoming refresher will encompass the hotel rooms’ exterior, much of it preserved from its 1962 debut when Hollywood producer Jack Skirball created the fantasy- island setting for families and Hollywood execs.
