Why We Like This Place

Built in 1916 in the Carmel Highlands just south of Carmel, this particular Hyatt Hotel is one of the most sought-after event locations in California. Noted for its panoramic views and extraordinary cliffside setting, the hotel provides an idyllic environment for a special celebration.

After its multi-million-dollar award-winning renovation, this venue is more stunning than ever. Commanding one of the world’s most spectacular vistas, with exploding waves crashing 200 feet below, the hotel offers a variety of first-class facilities for either business functions or weddings. For outdoor ceremonies, a redwood deck complete with contemporary gazebo is perched just above the rocky cliffs overlooking the Pacific.

After the ceremony guests are escorted into a variety of reception areas—each is elegant, with comfortable furnishings and outstanding views. The hotel’s chefs are renowned for culinary excellence, and the extensive wine and champagne list frequently garners the Grand Award from Wine Spectator. The staff can organize a traditional party or a more creative event for the adventuresome. If you’re looking for a very special place for one of life’s great moments, the incomparable Hyatt Carmel Highlands should be high on your list.
