An excellent way to get into the spirit of relaxation is to head directly to the Spa at La Costa. Undoubtedly the centerpiece of the resort, the Spa at La Costa was recently named the #1 Wellness Spa in the nation by Spa Magazine. The Spa’s lush courtyard offers a tranquil pool and jacuzzi, a waterfall shower, reflexology paths, herb gardens, as well as lounge areas and an excellent Spa Café. In addition to traditional (and perfectly executed) massage and beauty treatments, guests can spoil themselves with private sauna, steam, cold plunge, and hot tub fixtures. Next door, the world-renowned Deepak Chopra Center for Well-Being offers cutting-edge mind/body healing principles to complement the Spa. Kick back, put your feet up and start your stay with some much-needed relaxation.
Many guests love to dine at the Spa Café before and after their treatments, and are easily tempted by the deliciously healthful cuisine, rich smoothies, and perfect champagne cocktails. Decadent Blood Orange Bellinis wash down light entrées like their Fresh Crab & Shrimp Salad for a perfect Spa meal.

If you would like to enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine after a long day, however, the patio at the Diversions Lounge overlooking the golf course is magical at sunset. More formal dining options are offered by both the al fresco Bistro 65 and the cozy BlueFire Grill, both of which offer high quality, sustainable menus paired with excellent wine lists.
Combining fabulous service, perfect relaxation, gorgeous landscaping and delicious cuisine, the Spa at La Costa is one of the newest resorts to receive The Divine Addiction’s seal of approval as a “Jetset Favorite”… and yes, we’re addicted!
