We asked Sasha Robert, concierge at the Beach Village at the Del, to plan a single spectacular day in San Diego…

You’ll check in to our one-of-a-kind oceanfront one-bedroom, two-bath (plus den!) Horizon Suite that features a private “day tub”—an outdoor bath with views of the sea.

1. Yoga on the Beach

After your private yoga session on the beach, our driver will pick you up in a luxury vehicle and whisk you off to San Diego Bay for a two-hour catered catamaran charter with Aolani cruises for whale or dolphin watching.

4. Hot-air-balloon Flight

Then a quick, scenic ride up the coast brings you into Del Mar for lunch at Jake’s, followed by a sunset hot-air-balloon flight over the coast with California Dreamin’, a local adventure company.

5. Dinner at Stake
