Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Renovation

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa has announced the completion of an extensive $26 million renovation in celebration of its 20th anniversary. This transformation integrates the hotel’s historic charm with contemporary design, offering an enhanced guest experience that includes updated rooms, a new lobby and pool area, in addition to improved meeting spaces.

The redesigned guest rooms and suites are a blend of the hotel’s equestrian heritage and modern luxury. Earth tones, vibrant colors, rich wood furniture, leather accents and whimsical matte floor tiling inspired by Mexican encaustic cement tiles create a unique ambiance. Upgraded amenities include wireless chargers, streaming service access, marble countertops and walk-in showers. Select rooms feature soaking tubs and spacious balances with views of the botanical grounds.

The newly expanded lobby now exudes rustic charm and sophistication. With cozy fireplaces and an intimate outdoor patio, the lobby bar offers small plates and classic cocktails with a twist, celebrating the flavors of Baja California and Napa Valley. The Trading Post Cafe provides a casual yet elevated dining experience, featuring locally sourced ingredients, including honey from the on-site apiary.

The Palma, Estancia La Jolla’s reimaged poolside oasis, combines hacienda-inspired design with the relaxed elegance of Southern California. The area features luxurious cabanas with VIP packages and weekend events.

The hotel also offers nearly 47,000 square feet of flexible event space. The La Jolla Ballroom, the centerpiece of the indoor venue, has been revitalized with textured walls, modern lighting and whimsical flooring. Outdoor spaces have also been upgraded, including the new 1,000-sq.-ft. Mariposa Lawn, providing a picturesque setting for outdoor events.

The renovation also includes eco-friendly upgrades, such as reduced irrigation for the revitalized lawns. The hotel has partnered with Alveole to establish an apiary, promoting native pollination to provide a sustainable honey source. Guests can also enjoy herb and butterfly gardens across the property.

“Our 20th anniversary is not just a milestone but a launchpad into the future of Estancia La Jolla,” says Eric Jenkins, general manager of Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, in a recent press release. “This renovation represents our commitment to both our heritage and our forward-looking vision, ensuring we continue to offer an unparalleled guest experience in the storied La Jolla community.”

To celebrate the completion of the renovation, Estancia La Jolla is offering a Rediscover Estancia package, which includes luxurious accommodations, a $100 resort credit, complimentary parking and waived resort fees.
