The Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa is a Mediterranean-inspired resort hotel with 208 rooms, including 28 suites with coastal views. Ground level terraces are provided for group and private functions, and the rooftop Water Tower terrace will have panoramic views of the coastline. Additional features of the resort include a spa and fitness center, and 70,000 sq. ft. of event and meeting space.
The landscape is evocative of a classic Southern California coastal retreat, with Oaks and Olive trees providing the main canopy. Layered below are native plants and grasses in a naturalistic patter. The rigid geometry of the courtyards and fountains lend a counterpoint and formality to the outdoor use spaces, and are an interpretation of traditional Moorish designs.
