Living Large at La Costa
To experience La Costa Resort and Spa... first determine what it is you want from them. They will make it happen. I spent a day recently at the spa and afterward Blue Fire Grill.
Living super close the resort I was surprised about a couple of things. Although this is a private resort, the rest of us can also go their too!
With this new found knowledge I booked a message, milk bath, and lotus wrap. What a wonderful experience and incredibly relaxing. What comes with the spa prices is ful amenities in the indoor spa area, hot tub, steam room, lockers, reading area, etc. and the outdoor pool, roman shower, sun bathing area. There is a small poolside restaurant in which to order drinks and lunch. As suspected, the prices were not cheap, but the service was impeccable and the food was good. I believe the light beer that I had was close to $7 each.
If going, call first, I believe I saw others bringing in their own bottle of wine and drinking it around the pool. Or maybe they weren't supposed to, in which case, never mind, I didn't see a thing :)
The Blue Fire Grill surprisingly has live music on at least Wednesday evenings. I didn't know it and had never seen any advertisements for this. This particular Wednesday boasted an acoustic guitar player (Steve Orr) and he was really terrific at each of the songs people would call out for him to play. The Blue Fire was not busy, although I highly suspect this has more to do with the $18 glasses of wine and lack of advertising than any thing else. It is an expensive day, a relaxing day and well worth it if you are up for a bit of a treat.
Price range varies immensely based on what your order and what spa services you want.
