Hotel Overview


In the heart of Carmel, right by the beach.

Rooms at La Playa Carmel

Choose your view- ocean, garden or poolside- and relax in a sumptuous suite with comfortable top-of-the-range beds with silk linens to guarantee a peaceful night’s sleep. The stylish rooms overlook the sweeping Pacific Ocean and the award-winning gardens, and at the poolside rooms you can take a refreshing dip in the pool right outside your door, then warm up by the fireplace in your suite.

Food and facilities

The champagne breakfast buffet, which you can enjoy overlooking the beach and gardens, is a rather special experience to wake up to. A delicious all-day menu is served in the historic bar, where drinks can be lingered over in the evening. Or on a sunny day (which is most days) take a picnic down to the beautiful beach with its perfect white sand.

Activities at La Playa Carmel

Relax by the pool, take a stroll around the gardens, or use the hotel’s complimentary shuttle service and explore the shops, galleries and restaurants nearby.
