Opened in 2002 and perched upon the coastline of Southern California with a stunning backdrop of rugged cliffs, the rolling Pacific and hypnotising sunsets, The Lodge at Torrey Pines is located in La Jolla, one of the most sophisticated resort towns on the Southern California coast. The hotel occupies six and one-half acres by the 18th green of the famed Torrey Pines Golf Course. The Torrey Pines State Reserve, a beloved California State Park with beaches, golden cliffs and forests of Torrey pine and the rarest native pine in the U.S. is only a short walk away.
With its post-and-beam construction, expansive spaces, respect for the natural landscape and integration of indoor and outdoor, the Lodge honours the California Craftsman style of architecture of the early 1900s, which was a sprout of the patterns, which emphasised clean lines, open spaces and rough-hewn materials.
