is also known as PARADISE.
This place is ridiculously gorgeous,
which is the main reason why my bestie and I chose it as the setting for our random Tuesday spa day.
Best. Decision. Ever.
I meaaaan, I'm pretty sure the pictures speak for themselves,
although I hardly remembered my camera was in my purse as we stumbled around the beautiful grounds.
The Grand Del Mar shines as California’s triple Five-Star resort with a sparkling roster of recognition from the most prestigious organizations in the world,
including the incredible distinction as TripAdvisor’s #1 Luxury Hotel in California.
So in other words, it's fancy.
Here's the deal though,
you don't have to stay here to enjoy all the perks.
You can, of course,
but if you're an SD native like myself and don't need a place to stay,
you can just make a day trip out of it.
Which is exactly what we did.
Just book a treatment at the spa,
and indulge in all the complimentary amenities.
You guys, I can't even describe to you how relaxing this felt!
Shortly upon arrival, we checked in at the spa, changed into our robes, and walked over to Amaya for a light lunch (make your reservations here, it's worth it, I promise).
After some salmon tartare and a chilled bottle of rosé,
we pranced over to the pool to take in some sunshine before heading in for our spa appointments,
This was pretty much where we stayed for the rest of the day,
in between body scrubs and more wine.
