Top Reasons to Stay at The Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa

  • The beachfront hotel has the feel of an island resort, with palm trees, a 22-foot waterfall in the lobby, and tropical plants from all over the world, including Brazilian rosewoods and alobanti trees from Namibia.
  • There’s traditional Pacific Island art on display, including spears and warrior shields, that predates World War II.
  • Throughout the resort, you might see (or at least overhear) many exotic birds that call the area home, such as Chadwick the cockatoo and Conrad, a red-plumed macaw.
  • The onsite Atoll Restaurant has won the award for Best Sunday Brunch from San Diego Magazine on numerous occasions. Come early to get a table for brunch or stop by for dinner to try dungeness crab cakes and applewood-smoked pork chops.
  • Cocktails and light fare are served at Moray’s Lounge, named after the resident moray eel that lives in the lounge’s aquarium.
  • The Catamaran Spa has spectacular views of Mission Bay. You can also see the bay up close on a complimentary weekend cocktail cruise (not available in December or January).
  • The hotel is just a few minutes from SeaWorld San Diego and the 4,000-acre Mission Bay Park.

San Diego: Historical Attractions and Electric Nightlife in Southern California

San Diego's sunny, comfortably warm weather and 70 miles of coastline have long attracted vacationing out-of-towners, but the city's inland scene is no slouch, either. The Gaslamp Quarter is arguably one of the trendiest listings on the National Register of Historic Places. The area forms both the historic center of town and a hub of San Diego nightlife, with nearly 100 Victorian-era buildings now occupied by high-end boutiques, jewelers, and gourmet restaurants.

The Mission Bay area of San Diego has a wealth of family-friendly activities. Here you’ll find SeaWorld San Diego, the world-famous marine zoological park known for its entertaining shows featuring high-flying orca whales and the mischievous sea-lion tag team of Clyde and Seamore. Nearby, at Mission Bay Park, the largest manmade aquatic park in the country, you can sun on the sandy shores, watch a professional volleyball game, or bike on miles of waterfront paths.

It’s also worth it to take a stroll through iconic Balboa Park, a sprawling stretch of parkland home to 17 separate museums, as well as the world-famous and much beloved San Diego Zoo. There's also the vibrant Spanish Village Art Center, a living gallery where local artists produce pottery, handblown glass, and oil paintings for sale.
