Hyatt broke ground on two stand-alone properties in San Diego County last week. The Joie de Vivre Hotels and Destination Hotels properties are part of the largest oceanfront development in the area in the last decade. The properties are slated to open in late 2020.
The adjacent hotels are part of a 2.75-acre project in Oceanside, California, and offer a combined 387 guestrooms with immediate beach access and many with ocean views. Guests also enjoy multiple restaurants, bars, event venues, retail outlets and water sports.
The Joie de Vivre hotel incorporates the renovated 1887 Graves House seen in Top Gun and the rest of the hotel boasts a laid-back luxury vibe and a rooftop pool and bar.
The Destination Hotels property offers a complementary upscale experience, with its own pool deck, spa, library and expansive meeting and event space.
“We’ve had a longstanding, profound commitment to not only this project but also to furthering the transformation of Oceanside in northern San Diego County,” said Jeremy Cohen, director, S.D. Malkin Properties, the developer on the project. “We’re thrilled to see our vision come to fruition and to bring a world-class beach destination to downtown Oceanside that will continue to evolve the city.”
