what’s nearby

Once a luxurious mansion built in 1905 by an artist as a gift to his wife, a member of the Ghirardelli family, for over 100 years La Playa Carmel has been known as the “Grande Dame of Carmel”. Now after a multi-million dollar renovation, La Playa Carmel features all the comforts of today, while maintaining the charm and romance of the yesteryear. Located in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, La Playa Carmel is just two blocks from the beach, village shops, art galleries and restaurants. Anchoring Carmel’s most prestigious residential neighborhood, guests of the 75-room La Playa Carmel are treated to commanding ocean views and the sounds of the Pacific, award-winning gardens, intimate patios, secluded courtyards, and a tranquil terrace swimming pool. And with over 6,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, La Playa Carmel is the premier hotel for meetings, retreats and social events in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
