Mission Pacific Hotel and The Seabird Resort Debut in Oceanside Beach, Calif.
Representing the largest oceanfront hotel development in San Diego County in more than 50 years, the two hotel openings join Hyatt and underscore Oceanside Beach’s appeal as a sought-after Southern California travel destination

CHICAGO (May 19, 2021)Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Mission Pacific Hotel, a JdV by Hyatt hotel. Situated on 700 feet of beachfront property in Oceanside Beach, Calif. in North County San Diego, Mission Pacific Hotel and The Seabird Resort, a Destination by Hyatt hotel, which is slated to open on May 25, welcome guests to two adjacent boutique-style properties on a coastal playground that will markedly enhance the tourism landscape in Oceanside Beach.

Mission Pacific Hotel

Mission Pacific Hotel is a vibrant beachfront sanctuary with a laid-back spirit. Relaxed and undeniably Southern Californian, the 161 high-touch guest rooms – including 38 suites – feature soothing textures, gentle colors, cozy bedding, and gentle salt air. An expansive rooftop pool and jacuzzi with private cabanas and lounge seating offers the ultimate vantage point from which to take in endless Pacific views and majestic sunsets. A 24-hour fitness center, a library, and 13,000 square feet of ocean-view function space are among other notable amenities. Additionally, an exclusive beach kiosk provides guests with everything they need for a day of surf and sand, from chairs and umbrellas to sunscreen, towels, flip-flops, surfboard rentals, and more.

On the culinary front, adventurous taste and joy-driven hospitality merge to create four distinct food and beverage experiences that range from surf-casual to upscale. Valle, a Guadalupe Valley Kitchen will debut this summer as the hotel’s signature restaurant, helmed by acclaimed Chef Roberto Alcocer. Featuring a spacious outdoor dining veranda overlooking the ocean and private dining room, Valle will underscore California culinary inspiration rooted in the traditions of the Guadalupe Valley, perfectly rendered, and delivered by one of Baja’s most celebrated chefs. The Rooftop at Mission Pacific is Oceanside Beach’s first rooftop bar, where guests can enjoy expansive views and gorgeous sunsets with lounge seating and a range of specialty cocktails, craft beers, and inventive cuisine by Chef Alcocer. High/Low is an easy, breezy oceanfront café featuring expertly crafted bites with an emphasis on natural, fresh ingredients. Mission Pacific collaborated with Tara Lazar, a Southern California native and founder of the innovative hospitality group F10 Creative (Cheeky’s, Birba, Mr. Lyons and Seymour’s), on High/Low.

Most whimsical is Charlie’s, a decadent dessert bar in the transformed Graves House, the charming beach cottage seen in the iconic 1986 film, “Top Gun.” Built nearly 140 years ago, this piece of cinematic history was moved for the first time to Mission Pacific for its $1 million restoration. Mission Pacific Hotel collaborated with Tara Lazar on this delightful culinary concept to serve up fresh interpretations of classic treats.

At the heart of the Mission Pacific Hotel vibe is a robust list of local experiences, infused with the laid-back Oceanside (fondly known as “O’side”) spirit. At Mission Pacific Hotel, a unique “Skate School” program pays homage to Oceanside’s beloved action sport scene via guided skateboard lessons from Neal Mims, a lauded Olympic skateboard coach and talent behind Golden State Skateboarding, followed by a tour of local skateboard sites as well as a custom skateboard-making experience. Additionally, an “Après Surf” concept at The Rooftop embraces Oceanside’s breezy surf culture with an array of local beers and Baja-influenced fare curated with the help of the area’s top surfers. Finally, guests can take in vibrant artwork throughout the hotel, selected in partnership with the Oceanside Museum of Art.

The Seabird Resort

Boasting beautiful ocean estate architecture next to Mission Pacific Hotel, the 226-room Seabird Resort, which is set to open May 25, will be a true-to-place beachside resort, reimagined. The Seabird experience will embody the true spirit of a Southern California lifestyle. Along with iconic ocean views, this classic seaside resort will be beautifully refined, wonderfully indulgent, and picture perfect. Signature amenities include an expansive pool deck with ocean views and The Shelter Club, a poolside cabana for hotel guests to enjoy refreshing drinks and flavorful snacks; Sunny’s Spa and Beauty Lounge, featuring authentic, farm-to-sea treatments rooted in efficacy and world-class technique; a library; and nearly 20,000 square feet of spectacular ocean-view meeting and celebration spaces.

Chef Kurtis Habecker’s inventive cuisine with ingredients sourced from San Diego’s many small farms will take center stage at The Seabird’s two inventive food and beverage concepts. With an open-kitchen design and a made-to-order pasta station, the signature Piper Restaurant showcases seasonal, local produce and celebrated authentic California cuisine. The Shore Room will be a buzzy ocean-view bar focusing on daring mixology and delicious bites serving as a premier spot to catch a classic California sunset.

The Seabird Resort will feature a variety of enriching experiences for the whole family. Embracing Oceanside’s deep-rooted surf culture, a “Surfing by The Seabird” program offers a surf valet experience and lessons, including a private surfing session with North County Surf Academy and an opportunity to surf alongside professional surfer and third-generation Oceanside resident, Duran Barr. Launching later in 2021 will be “Farm-to-Table Tours,” immersing guests in Oceanside's burgeoning agritourism scene with a one-of-a-kind paddock-to-plate experience. Families can also look forward to the “Little Seabirds” program, a series of interactive, ocean-inspired activities for children such as sandcastle building, kite flying, treasure hunts, arts and crafts, and more. Finally, art-lovers can revel in OMA West, a rotating art gallery at The Seabird Resort that serves as an extension of Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA).

“We are thrilled to welcome locals and travelers alike to Oceanside Beach,” said Michael Stephens, area managing director of Mission Pacific Hotel and The Seabird Resort. “This has been a passion project for our team, and every touchpoint of the guest experience at each of the properties and all the restaurants has been considered.”

Truly a Southern California beach town, Oceanside Beach touts phenomenal weather year-round and pristine coasts peppered with charming bungalow neighborhoods. Mission Pacific Hotel and The Seabird Resort are conveniently located near the Oceanside Transit Center, offering effortless travel to both properties. Notable attractions including the Oceanside Arts District, Safari Park, San Diego Zoo, and Disneyland are also nearby.
