The holiday season is right around the corner, believe it or not, and there’s no better place to plan a holiday party than at The Lodge at Torrey Pines, La Jolla's own AAA Five Diamond resort. Located along the pristine Torrey Pines Golf Course, The Lodge is your home away from home for celebrating family, friends or co-workers amid sparkling décor and the aromas of the holiday season, such as pines and wood-burning fireplaces.
Perhaps one of the best-kept secrets at The Lodge is the Hughes Cottage, where an intimate gathering of up to 18 guests can enjoy the culinary expertise of Executive Chef Jeff Jackson, who is a protégé of the famed French chef Jean Banchet and pioneered the farm-to-table movement in San Diego. Start on the patio with drinks, hors d'oeuvres and immaculate views before stepping inside to gather around the table for dinner, storytelling and gift exchanging.
The Lodge’s additional premiere event spaces offer venues to celebrate the season in true holiday spirit. All private function rooms celebrate artists from the early 20th century and are ideally suited for intimate groups of 25 guests to grand gatherings of 300. Enjoy fireside cocktails on the patios before moving inside to be treated to a holiday menu custom-created for your guests. Chef Jackson and his skilled culinary team will treat your guests to holiday-inspired fare of simple combinations paired with Sommelier Paul Krikorian’s selection of specialty California wines. Our catering experts are here to create that special holiday memory for you.
The Lodge pays homage to the Craftsman era and showcases 169 rooms and suites that reflect San Diego's stress-free lifestyle while providing all the comfort and amenities you need. The resort is designed to blend in with the adjacent Torrey Pines State Reserve, which features golden sandstone formations and rare Torrey pine trees. Several room packages are available, including those centered around golf, the new fall horse racing season in Del Mar, holiday shopping and culinary events.
The Lodge is a proud participant of the California Green Lodging Program and has garnered its top-tier environmentalist level for demonstrating water and energy conservation, waste minimization, recycling, environmentally friendly purchasing, program sustainability and pollution prevention. The Lodge also won the 2014 Director’s Recycling Award from the city of San Diego Environmental Services Department.
