With sun-drenched beaches, vibrant arts, world-class dining and exciting adventures, San Diego is consistently rated one of the most romantic destinations in the country. With so many activities to explore, it can be difficult to pack America’s finest offerings into one getaway. Luckily, Paradise Point, a Destination Hotel, San Diego’s quintessential island resort, has all the amenities couples seek on a romantic retreat.
Nestled amongst 44-acres of lush tropical gardens, lagoons and white sand beaches on San Diego’s Mission Bay, Paradise Point Resort is the perfect sanctuary for an idyllic couples’ getaway.
Every room at Paradise Point invites couples into an open and airy Balinese-style bungalow with modern teak furnishings. Offering a choice of garden, lagoon or bay views, each bungalow boasts an adjacent private patio with two Adirondack chairs, perfect for in-room dining and soaking in the natural island beauty. Guests can also choose to stay in one of five romantic Bayside Fireplace Suites that feature an in-room fireplace, large jetted tub and French glass doors ideal for taking in spectacular bay views from bed.
From tropical flora and meandering lagoons to incredible views that showcase all of Mission Bay, there is no shortage of romantic backdrops on the island. For the best seat in the house, guests can head to Tidal, the resort’s signature restaurant. Set in what was a private beach house in the 1960s, this “craft and catch” seafood concept features a glass bayside deck with 180-degree sunset views and cozy waterfront fire pits.
Couples that play together, stay together, and blissful adventures are endless on Paradise Point’s exotic 44 acres. Whether you prefer to explore Mission Bay by bicycle or on foot, hop on board a FunCat motorized lounge chair for two, or take an exhilarating ride on a jetski, Paradise has it all. The resort’s full service marina offers many romantic activities such as tandem kayaking and scenic sunset cruises. Within the island’s sandy shores, couples can find bocce ball and horseshoes, bayfront bonfire pits, a doubles tennis court and an adult-only pool surrounded by radiant tropical gardens.
The award-winning Spa at Paradise Point makes for a tranquil oasis retreat tucked amongst the resort’s tropical foliage. Couples can unwind in the spa’s private garden courtyard and hot tub before indulging in romantic treatments like side-by-side Balinese massages in the couples’ bungalow or a milk bath for two in a wooden soaking tub sprinkled with hibiscus flowers. Journeying back to the roots of herbal healing, the Spa at Paradise Point enhances traditional treatments with sensory experiences and exotic rituals from islands around the world.
For romantic adventures beyond Paradise, the resort’s central location makes it a perfect home base for visiting San Diego’s most alluring attractions. With 70 miles of gorgeous coastline and sparkling surf, it’s easy to find a romantic spot along San Diego’s sandy beaches, waterfront parks, or watch the sunset from Mt. Soledad, the cliffs at Sunset Beach or Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. An exciting city center serves up intimate dining experiences and vivacious live music. For a truly unique afternoon, lovebirds can pack a picnic and head to Balboa Park, the nation’s largest urban cultural park, home to 15 major museums and art galleries, renowned performing arts venues, blooming gardens and the world-famous San Diego Zoo.
Throughout the year, Paradise Point Resort & Spa offers a variety of San Diego packages, including accommodations, dining and alluring activities, tailored to fan the flames of the ideal romantic vacation retreat. For information, visit www.paradisepoint.com.
