Omni La Costa Resort & Spa is one of our favorite hideaways in Southern California. It’s situated near Legoland and the beach so you can’t beat the location and they have waterslides and several fantastic pools for the kids and one of the BEST wellness centers, the Chopra Center, in the world for all of us mamas.
5 Reasons to Love Omni La Costa Resort and Spa
1. Two 100 foot water-slides, a toddler-slide, and spray-ground
What family isn’t entertained by water slides?? I know our munchkins are huge fans. And, I am a huge fan of kids having a blast so I can relax poolside with a nice cocktail in hand and a fantastic read. Okay… most times I am that goofy mom in the water with them. But, one can dream 😉

2. Eight distinct pool areas including kid-specific areas and an adults-only pool
When you are in California you want to be in the water… it’s just natural… Don’t fight the urge! La Costa has eight gorgeous pools to tempt you with. My favorite is the gorgeous Spa Courtyard Pool… but with the munchkins, the Sandy Family Beach Pool takes the cake. Oh… and they have fabulous lounge chairs and TONS of shade!!!

3. Location… Location… Location
Carlsbad California has SO much to offer… beaches, amazing restaurants, tons of shopping.
Plus, there are a ton of activities nearby including Legoland, Birch Aquarium, SeaWorld Adventure Park, San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park and the Flower Gardens (seasonally open).
There is also the Carlsbad Lagoon with tons of fun water rentals too!
4. #1 Wellness Spa in the Nation!!!
I L.O.V.E. everything health and well being. I love eating organic whole foods, yoga, meditation and natural healing. So, you can bet I am all for La Costa’s Wellness Spa. I mean you don’t get #1 in the Nation from Spa Magazine for nothing. Doesn’t mom deserve some relaxation and rejuvenation? And, don’t even get me started on the Chopra Center– that will be a post all on its own.

5. Fantastic Family Activities
As if there wasn’t already a ton to do off property… La Costa also offers a bunch (over 150 weekly activities to be exact) of fun activities for the family right at the resort. I’m talking daily crafts, nighttime s’mores, tennis and golf lessons, wellness classes, fitness classes… I could go on and on. Or you can just click here and see for yourself.
