Margaritaville Expanding to West Coast

by Jessica Montevago

Margaritaville Holdings announced Monday the lifestyle brand’s first west coast resort in San Diego, California. The Margaritaville Island Resort San Diego, located on the 44-acre Vacation Island in Mission Bay, is expected to open in 2020.

The site is currently home to Paradise Point Resort & Spa. Real estate investment trust Pebblebrook Hotel Trust acquired Paradise Point Resort & Spa in 2018. Pebblebrook will assist with the transition along with the resort’s current management company, Davidson Hotels & Resorts.

Following extensive renovations and rebranding, estimated at $35 million, the Margaritaville Island Resort San Diego will feature 462 casita-style single-story guestrooms with a ‘casual-luxe’ design and waterfront views with a mile of beachfront overlooking the marina and Mission Bay, signature Margaritaville food & beverage concepts and new recreational activities and family-friendly amenities. Adding to the 80,000 square feet of meeting space, marina, spa, tennis courts and fitness center, the property’s five pools and public spaces will be updated as well.
