Ocean Crest Spa at Cape Rey Carlsbad


Located along the Carlsbad coastline, the Ocean Crest Spa is the centerpiece for serenity and wellness at the Cape Rey Carlsbad. Inspired by the healing powers of the sea, the spa offers an environmentally-mindful experience with coastally-derived treatments. Ocean-themed decor, high-tech elements, natural products, and treatments based upon the water’s healing powers blend to create a harmonious mind-body balance. Enjoy exceptionally pure, naturally-sourced products, available in few other domestic spas.
A short stroll from the beach, Cape Rey Carlsbad made its debut in summer 2012, bringing to the northern San Diego County area a casual charm and distinct design evocative of contemporary Craftsman architecture and an appreciation for the coastal setting. Enveloped by fragrant, flowering vegetation, the resort’s Pacific Ocean inspiration permeates the property, from its locale nestled at the crest of rolling berms to its fresh regional dishes at the signature restaurant.

The 5,600-square-foot Ocean Crest Spa is dedicated to providing guests with an environmentally mindful spa experience, capped off by a design and treatment menu inspired by the shoreline surroundings. A light, airy vibe ensues, created with neutral hues and ample use of teak, bronze, stone, amber and glass, while a full range of amenities—seven ocean-themed treatment rooms, a couple’s area with tub and private terrace, indoor and outdoor relaxation lounges and more— is designed to pamper and relax. High-tech touches reflect a modern ambience without being too technical: massage tables boast built-in Bose sound technology, facial tables have a contoured design to maximize comfort, and the nail salon features pipe-free tubs and an acrylic-free atmosphere.

A variety of traditional massages, facials, body treatments and nailcare services, complemented by signature regional-based treatments, use pure, naturally sourced products from the Tasha & Co. Organics, Osea Malibu and Dr. Mostafa Omar lines.

Ocean Crest Spa at Cape Rey Carlsbad Facilities & Amenities

Rooms & Dining

Cape Rey Carlsbad has 215 guest rooms, a majority of which offer dazzling ocean views, balconies or outdoor seating areas. All have 42-inch flat-screen TVs, in-room safes, mini bars and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Interiors mimic the resort’s contemporary California Craftsman style: Color tones combine a dynamic mix of rust and warm gold with blue and green, accented by metallics, and decor includes artwork depicting Carlsbad beach scenes and embroidered window sheers designed to resemble sea kelp.

Diners will get a taste of the coast with regional dishes like crab-crusted Pacific sea bass and albacore tuna tartare at Chandler’s Restaurant. The California-inspired venue maintains a charming, laidback feel with sophisticated flair, and there are three outdoor seating areas, two of which share a fire pit. Menus vary seasonally and highlight locally grown produce. Light options are available at Ocean Crest Spa.
