From Lodging Magazine: “First Margaritaville Island Resort To Open on the West Coast in 2020“
Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and Margaritaville Holdings today announced the global lifestyle brand’s first west coast resort in San Diego, California. The Margaritaville Island Resort San Diego is expected to open in 2020. Located on the 44-acre Vacation Island in Mission Bay, 10 minutes from downtown San Diego, the site is the current home of Paradise Point Resort & Spa.
Following extensive renovations and conversion of the existing property estimated at approximately $35 million, the Margaritaville Island Resort San Diego will have 462 casita-style, single-story guestrooms with waterfront views, a mile of beachfront overlooking the marina and Mission Bay, signature Margaritaville food & beverage concepts, and new recreational activities and family-friendly amenities. Adding to the 80,000 square feet of meeting space, marina, spa, tennis courts, and fitness center, the property’s five pools and public spaces will be updated to reflect Margaritaville’s lifestyle.
“We are excited to announce this exciting affiliation with Margaritaville at our Paradise Point Resort & Spa,” said Jon E. Bortz, chairman, president, and CEO of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “Our island resort offers a unique San Diego beach experience in a secluded, yet centrally situated location to nearby downtown San Diego, SeaWorld, Balboa Park, Seaport Village, and other top attractions. Following an extensive evaluation of numerous alternatives, we selected Margaritaville because we believe it is the perfect fit for our San Diego Paradise Point Resort & Spa.
“Margaritaville is about relaxation, fun, great food, entertainment, and creating memorable experiences,” said John Cohlan, CEO of Margaritaville. “We look forward to sharing our way of life with visitors to this unique island paradise in San Diego.”
