Many onebedroom suites feature fireplaces and two-bedroom suites offer either fireplaces or jet soaking tubs. Every suite has a private laundry facility and, perhaps best of all, a terrace or patio with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean.

It has two private outdoor cabanas and a scenic relaxation lawn, ideal for private or group yoga sessions.  

Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa offers activities that appeal to all ages, including a Kid’s Club on Saturdays. Pets are not only welcomed, they’re spoiled a bit. Beyond recreation, the resort offers a variety of beautiful venues for meetings, corporate retreats, and special events like the popular Chardonnay Symposium, held each year. Dolphin Bay weddings are picture perfect, too. Many brides and grooms say “I do” on the cobblestone circle overlooking Lookout Point. The Pacific View tent offers a stunning backdrop for up to 250 guests.

Dolphin Bay’s signature restaurant and lounge, Lido, offers the perfect way to start and end each day with innovative menus and an award-winning wine list of more than 450 domestic and international wines.
