Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A luxurious seaside escape with 19 acres of exclusive beachfront tucked between the hills of Carmel Valley and the Marina Dunes that's a uniquely romantic destination.
  • Breathtaking waterfront ceremonies on the beach bluff or toes-in-the-sand elopements are followed by unforgettable wedding receptions that range from rustic to glamorous, held in the resort's impeccable indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • Acclaimed gourmet cuisine by Salt Wood Kitchen and Oysterette, a locally driven restaurant, offers an authentic coastal dining experience.
  • Clustered in bungalows that hug the beach, the resort’s 60 rooms and suites feature Pacific views and outdoor patios overlooking the cascading sand dunes.
