Get whisked away to a tropical oasis in the heart of San Diego at the Bahia Resort Hotel, which recently completed a multi-million-dollar renovation project. The stunning Mission Bay resort’s 313 guest rooms received a major upgrade with design improvements that complement the Bahia’s beach-meets-Morocco theme. In addition to reimagined guest accommodations, the renovation includes upgrades to the Bahia’s event spaces, grounds and dining areas. Future event attendees will marvel at the attention to detail in the Mission Bay Ballroom’s 20,000 square-foot space, which features panoramic views of the water as well as new carpeting, wall coverings and large chandeliers. In addition, the resort also opened a grab ‘n go café inside a repurposed Airstream located just outside the lobby. The hotel plans to use the Airstream for outdoor private events as well. Visitors also can relax in style at the Bahia’s private beach either in its updated cabanas or at its comfortable new seating area with lounge beach chairs and umbrellas.
