Facility Description: The Bahia Resort Hotel is a welcoming waterfront property located on a private 14-acre peninsula in San Diego’s scenic Mission Bay. Featuring spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and lush tropical gardens paired with friendly service and comfortable accommodations, Bahia Resort Hotel is the ideal destination for events of all shapes and sizes.
At the Bahia, 16 distinct venues encompassing nearly 20,000 square feet complement a variety of special occasions ranging in size from 10 to 1,200 attendees, from personal celebrations and weddings to business meetings and large-scale conferences.
At the top of many guests’ lists is the stunning Mission Bay Ballroom, featuring a birds-eye view of the bay from its lofty location atop the hotel. On select evenings, this space also offers a panoramic view of SeaWorld’s frequent fireworks show, adding a special surprise to an already-impressive evening. Closer to the water’s edge, the Bahia’s outdoor venues are located directly on the beach or centered around an oasis-inspired pond, where they embrace San Diego’s beautiful natural landscape.
For an experience a bit beyond the norm, groups are welcome aboard the Bahia Belle or her sister ship the William D. Evans to cruise Mission Bay. Both of these modern day replicas of 19th-century Mississippi riverboats are magnificently adorned with rich woods, etched glass and polished brass fixtures reflective of an era of fine service and elegance. Groups of up to 450 attendees can enjoy these vessels and all of their historic grace and charm.
Because no event can succeed without the right elements in place, the Bahia offers an experienced and capable team ready to bring ideas to fruition. While talented event planners assist with the details of event preparation, the Bahia’s culinary team ensures that a customized menu leaves guests raving. Friendly service staff and technical aids are also at hand so that groups can focus on what truly matters: making the most of every event.
Impressive accommodations are also key to a positive experience, and the Bahia offers deluxe studios and suites, each with its own balcony or patio. Further options include kitchenettes, direct access to the beach, and views of the sparkling bay and expansive tropical gardens. An array of dining options include the Café Bahia, specializing in Mediterranean cuisine, and the Moroccan-inspired Tangier Lounge, where guests enjoy crafty drinks alongside a crackling fireplace and live entertainment.
Nearby activities consist of sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing and more ‒ though many opt to simply relax on the soft sand beaches or at the Bahia’s sparkling pool. Additional amenities include an on-site fitness center, tennis courts, kids’ arcade and bicycle and Segway rentals, while the hotel itself is within walking distance to Belmont Park, an oceanfront amusement park in Mission Beach. The Bahia’s location is also ideal for those planning to visit SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Downtown’s Gaslamp District and the San Diego International Airport during their stay.
The Bahia Resort Hotel is owned and operated by Evans Hotels, a San Diego-based hospitality group that also operates two additional luxury properties: The Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla and The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, also on Mission Bay.
