It all started when entrepreneur/developer and visionary Jim Watkins – still today an active proponent of Del Mar as a destination for locals and visitors alike – orchestrated a rebirth of the oceanfront village in 1989. Watkins’ centerpiece project was The Inn at L’Auberge Del Mar, which was constructed on a 5.2-acre site overlooking the Pacific. Ultimately fueling a Del Mar renaissance, the hotel was designed to re-envision the 1940’s glamor of this appealing seaside town with a slight European flavor as seen in the chateau-like architecture.
Ringing in its 30th anniversary this year, L’Auberge Del Mar is celebrating the epic milestone with a party, escape package and other fun features.
“Taking a cue from the traditional 30th anniversary gift of pearls, we’ve created luxury pearl-themed experiences to observe this important milestone throughout the rest of the year.”Bob Harter, Director of Sales and Marketing, L’Auberge Del Mar
Celebrations for the anniversary include a party on Friday, May 3 from 7 to 10 p.m. Open to the public, the night will feature live music on the Sunset Terrace, specialty foods and craft cocktails. Throughout 2019 guests can order the Pearl ’89 Cocktail, a mix of Moet Chandon, Uncle Val’s Botanical Gin, Elderflower Tonic, Giffard Pamplemousse and lemon juice. Or unwind with the Pearl Radiance Facial at the Spa. Also available through the end of the year, the customized facial uses the Spa’s natural skincare line with ingredients derived from the ocean to reveal pearly glowing skin.
