La Costa Resort Sold to Omni Hotels

New La Costa Resort and Spa

Nothing takes my eye off La Costa real estate faster than hearing La Costa Resort is being sold to the Texas-based Omni Hotels & Resorts–effective July 1, 2013.

La Costa assures us members that it will be a “seamless” transition, but we can’t help but wonder what’s in store with the new owners. Will membership fees and services change? Will facilities expand? Did the sale include La Costa’s Carlsbad beach property?

So many questions, so few answers!

The purchase price has not been revealed, but the package purchase includes five KSL Capital Partner, LLC holdings including:

  • Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, TX
  • La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, CA
  • Rancho Las Palmas & Spa  in Rancho Mirage, CA
  • The Grove Park In in Asheville, NC
  • The Homestead in Hot Springs, VA

The Omni Resort Collection owns close to 60 luxury hotel complees which includes a ski facility, three water parks and five spas.

Though I may be biased, I think the crown jewel in terms of amenities and location would have to be La Costa Resort and Spa.
