When planning an event in San Diego, you might consider looking beyond the traditional hotels, venues and meeting spaces and look at something a little more unique and memorable to throw a private party, a business retreat or an incentive getaway. Using a private estate as the backdrop for your event will truly deliver the wow factor that you hope to leave in the minds of your guests and give them something to talk about around the water cooler.
Considering an excellent bayside location, here are a few of the many spots you might want to select for their magnificent architecture and atmosphere that will leave a fantastic impression. Of course, you will want to engage with local suppliers to recreate the space to best represent the theme that would like to portray and venue management can easily hook you up to all the right people that can help you play out your vision. Blend focus with elegance and fun and you’ll produce a winning event.
One such venue is the La Jolla Modern with a capacity to hold 120 guests. Set in close proximity to the downtown core on the magnificent La Jolla coastline, the property was designed by Jonathan Segal and is known for its vast sweeping lines and clean cut modern angles. The atmosphere is idyllic and makes for a comfortable surrounding that will put your group at ease, even if they’re about to tackle hours of workshops or meetings. Blending glass elements with grey stone structure, the property brings the inside outdoors with its fabulous rooftop patio featuring a hot tub equipped with the quintessential view of the Pacific sunset.
Another similar property is the Bayview Mansion that can accommodate 300 guests in event space with a few overnight accommodations available for organizers if necessary. The views from the Mansion are breathtaking, overlooking the bay at Point Loma and facing the Coronado Bridge and the available outdoor space enables attendees to your event to take this in as they engage in the business at hand. With a private dock attached, guests can arrive by boat so plan a welcome cocktail on the water prior to your meetings.
The classic Californian architecture and expansive grounds will leave your guests in awe and inspired, creating the perfect environment for corporate meeting events. Add social flare to these conferences by making use of the culinary delights, tennis courts and beach access.
Another La Jolla property is Villa La Jolla which will easily host about 150 guests for your event and again, this property has a modern appeal that blends beautifully with the exquisite La Jolla coastline. Seated majestically atop a lush hillside, the open air space brings the outdoors in and makes the best use of the San Diego locale in creating an ambience of marine elegance. The modern design, by Wallace Cunningham, is sophisticated and dramatic, employing metal, stone and glass in the estate’s façade. The exterior space resembles a private beach resort embraced by Pacific Ocean vistas.
By planning to host your next meeting in these chic and opulent venues, you will be suggesting to your guests that they are valued and revered and this sets the stage for motivated and energetic participants which can only be of great benefit to you. All logistical details can be easily customized to suit your vision and you’ll walk away from your event with all the right outcomes achieved from both a business and social standpoint.
