Hotel Del Coronado’s Beach Village Offers The Utmost In Luxury
The Hotel del Coronado has been celebrated for its service and architecture since it opened in 1888. Now the resort destination has been enhanced to cater to discerning travelers looking for the utmost in luxury with Beach Village.
The cottages and villas at Beach Village offer 78 secluded, beachfront guestrooms and suites under the red-shingled roofs that have come to epitomize The Del. With up to three bedrooms, each suite features dining and living great rooms with fireplaces, and kitchens with Sub-Zero refrigerators, stainless-steel Wolf cooktops and built-in ovens.

The seamless connection between the past and the present continues inside the cottages and villas.

Oversized baths are enhanced with white Calcutta marble on the floors, shower walls and tub decks, and chrome fixtures accenting the stone. Custom-made vanities are crafted with ebony mahogany and Emperador dark-marble tops. Throughout the interiors, the furniture selection is transitional with a hint of cottage style provided by blue textured-linen upholstery and fresh striped-linen draperies. Seen as a whole, every element of the décor blends harmoniously, creating the feeling of a California beach bungalow that opens to the ocean.
The exclusive ambiance of the private Beach Village enclave is enhanced by a contemporary interpretation of The Del’s traditional landscaping. Classic gardens, exotic flowering plants and stone-capped borders line elegant promenades.
Interspersed between the cottages and villas, a series of private terraces secluded by walls and hedges provide intimate outdoor living spaces, replete with therapeutic spa hot tubs, designer patio furniture and fire pits. The centerpiece of Beach Village is an oval-shaped pool surrounded by private cabanas and fan palms.
