The Lodge at Torrey Pines is an award-winning luxury resort set atop the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Beach in La Jolla, California. Awarded the AAA Five Diamond rating for 15 consecutive years, the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and Travel + Leisure’s Top 50 Hotels in the United States and Canada, The Lodge provides stunning views of the world-renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course and Pacific Ocean and endless opportunities for guests to enjoy San Diego’s warm climate – from outdoor dining and relaxing at the spa to hiking, golfing and more. The Lodge is modeled after the famed Gamble and Blacker houses in Pasadena – two of the finest examples of early 1900s Craftsman-style architecture. Its post-and-beam construction features a natural color palette, graceful wing-like rooflines, shingle and sandstone-bluff exteriors, clinker-brick masonry, rich woodwork and natural stone surfaces. Arrivals are greeted by doormen attired in kilted Scottish dress, while inside are 170 spacious guest rooms and suites designed for supreme comfort. The Lodge’s signature restaurant A.R. Valentien – rated Best Hotel Restaurant in the West by Sunset Magazinein 2015 – is a destination for fresh regional cuisine served in an elegant setting overlooking the Torrey Pines Golf Course. Artisan Table Dinners highlighting farm-to-table fare in a communal setting are offered weekly, while Executive Chef Jackson headlines The Lodge’s annual Celebrate the Craft event, one of Southern California’s premier showcases for regionally grown ingredients and innovative cooking and winemaking. For a more casual vibe, The Grill at The Lodge offers a full menu of favorites whether dining indoors or on the patio, while its bar is an ideal gathering place after a day on the golf course. The Spa at Torrey Pines features signature treatments themed around the beauty and purity of the Pacific coastline. This 9,500 square foot space uses botanical and marine-based extracts from European product lines Phytomer, SkinCeuticals, Farmhouse Fresh and NV Organics to replenish and restore the body and mind. Additional features of The Lodge include a croquet lawn, heated outdoor pool and cabanas, whirlpool, outdoor terrace with chaise lounges, hiking at the adjacent Torrey Pines State Reserve, a fitness center and the Scripps Library, a public space featuring a pool table, board games and more. Adjacent to The Lodge, the Torrey Pines Golf Course is an iconic 36-hole course that hosts the PGA Tour’s annual Farmers Insurance Open. Whether on the North Course or South Course, our guests have the opportunity to play where the pros play with the stunning La Jolla coastline as a backdrop. Nearby attractions include downtown La Jolla and Del Mar, Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the La Jolla Playhouse performing arts center and the Museum of Contemporary Art. During spring and summer, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club entices visitors with the thrill of live racing, while a popular year-round choice is the Torrey Pines State Reserve, a magnificent 2,000 acres of protected rare Torrey Pine trees featuring pristine beaches and eight miles of trails; The Lodge offers complimentary guided hikes throughout the preserve daily. The Lodge is located just 15 miles north of the San Diego International Airport and downtown San Diego.

The architecture of this lodge is quite impressive. It has the look and feel of the 1940's lodges but it was built in 2002. Really cool. The Lodge is adjacent to the Torrey Pines golf course and tee times can be booked thru the Lodge. We were there while the stands were being

There is nothing to say here but perfection. The beds, the bathrooms, the lobby, the service, the food. Everything has been my kind of perfection. I used the drivers to go back and forth to La Jolla and they were delightful. I also appreciated real half and half in the

Place is about a 20 min ride from the airport. Very tentative staff when you arrive and the check in process was quick and easy. As you walk through the halls it has a very old hotel feel yet you can tell it's not really as old as it looks. The rooms to have a wood accent. I

What are the resort fees and parking fees/day?
sorry, but I'm not sure. We parked in short term/30 minute parking for the pro shop and then decided to stay for apps and drinks. The golf shop personnel told us we were fine to stay in that spot...….and we were only there for about 1 1/2 hours not a full day. The pro shop had a list of the rental fees. Very cheap if you have someone in your party who is a resident of San Diego! Hope this helps.

You will have an amazing stay.... it’s a beautiful property and our area is filled with such natural beauty!! Depending how much you like to walk, you have some nice options: -take a walk into the Torrey Pines State Preserve and follow one of the marked trails down to the beach (you can check out the trail maps online) -walk over to the Torrey Pines Glider Park, right next to The Salk Institute. As well as watching the amazing hang gliders and paragliders launch themselves off the cliffs, there are trails down to the beach. -call an Uber and go to La Jolla Shores Beach, just about 10 minutes from the Lodge. It’s a wonderful mile-long beach, very wide with a big grassy park next to it. The Scripps Institute of Oceanography Pier is at one end and the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club is at the other end... with the lovely little village of La Jolla Shores at the south end (this is different than the main village of La Jolla). There are lots of great cafes and restaurants as well as surf, snorkel and kayak shops in LJ Shores. Enjoy!!!
