When you learn that La Playa Carmel By The Sea - a luxurious California mansion, was built by an artist as a gift for his wife, you know you are in for a special experience.  Their love is in ingrained in the walls.


Built in 1905, La Playa Carmel has 75 stunning rooms within this beautifully historic hotel. Located just meters from Carmel Beach, the views are absolutely spectacular.

Every morning, wake up to stunning ocean views, or immaculately romantic garden views.  The rooms are fresh, calm, and simplistically and stylishly decorated to make you feel as relaxed and as welcomed as possible.


An incredible gourmet buffet breakfast is included in all the rates. Start your day enjoying European cheeses and fresh pastries as you sit and watch the world come alive across the Pacific Ocean.  The beautiful historic hotel bar offers light food options for lunch and dinner.  Take advantage of their complimentary shuttle service into the vibrant dining area of Carmel to enjoy a romantic evening out on the town.


Unwind in the evening with delicious hand-crafted cocktails in their history and warm bar - sit back and take in the magical atmosphere of the history laden walls, and the century-old mansion that you are in.


Spend those hot summer days relaxing in their tranquil terrace swimming pool.

As this historic hotel claims: "Preserved For History. Modernized For Today".

The gardens on the resort grounds are truly beautiful.  Deck chairs over look the immaculately landscaped flowers….an oversized chess set adorns the central patio….it really is a stunning experience to enjoy together.  Take a bottle of wine out, or a good book, or just stroll hand in hand admiring the serenity.  Enjoy everything this resort has to offer.
