Park Hyatt Aviara was selected as a Forbes Five-Star recipient for its highly personalized service, quality amenities and ability to create enriching and truly memorable experiences for guests.

The resort has hosted the prestigious LPGA Kia Classic golf tournament for the past two years on its award winning Arnold Palmer-designed championship golf course, named by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine as one of the best resort golf courses in America. The guest experience is always at the forefront of attention, and the resort introduced several new programs to engage with it customers, such as the acclaimed Masters of Food & Wine quarterly events that introduce guests to local culinary craftsmen. These additions – along with distinctive dining at four on-site restaurants and a celebrated 15,000 square foot wellness spa – all add to the Five-Star experience.
