Loews Coronado Bay Resort, Coronado’s own luxury resort boasting 439 guest rooms, five restaurants, outdoor pools and tennis courts and a private 80-slip marina all situated on a 15-acre peninsula has recently partnered with Pacific Avalon Yacht Charters based out of Newport Beach to bring Southern California hospitality to a whole new level. Loews Coronado, which serves both leisure and business travelers, has expanded its luxury offerings from waterfront to on the water. Three majestic yachts will soon be docked at the resort for private events, weddings and corporate gatherings.

Over 35 years in operation, Pacific Avalon Charters owns and operates their fleet of luxury yachts, each with a state-of-the-art design. The Ambassador is the newest addition to the fleet and can accommodate 150 passengers on board its three custom built decks which offer maximum comfort and sensational views.

Loews Coronado Managing Director Brian Johnson calls the new offerings “floating meeting space,” which will compliment the resort’s 65,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space including ballrooms, outdoor terraces and gardens.

Ambassador, Majestic and Royal Princess will court guests on the open water, providing an unforgettable experience. Imagine setting sail alongside the setting sun and spending an elegant evening cruising through the glistening San Diego Bay, while dining on artfully prepared farm-to-table cuisine, crafted by Executive Chef Nicolas Bour. Bour, who oversees all of the resort’s day-to-day culinary operations including its restaurants, brings a wealth of expertise to the table and has mastered the art of transforming simple ingredients into unforgettable flavors. Loews’ partnership with Suzie’s Farm enables the culinary team to cook with fresh, local ingredients for a truly unique local taste.

“We are taking things a step beyond just your average banquet-style baked potato and prime rib,” says Bour. “We want to offer our yacht guests restaurant quality dining.”

Born in Canada to French father and American mother, Bour came to the United States to train under some of the country’s most acclaimed chefs including James Beard “Best Chef,” Michelin-star chef Guenter Seeger and Jean Banchet. Bour has cooked for numerous celebrities and dignitaries, including two U.S. presidents and brings experience from his own two previous restaurants, Rancho Bernardo Inn’s signature Avant and the highly acclaimed Atlanta Bistro.

Named among the “10 Best Resorts in San Diego” by USA Today, Loews Coronado Bay Resort has a variety of offerings to suit any traveler. From the Pottery Barn inspired Kids Club to the luxurious Sea Spa and Spray Lounge, Loews offers the ideal respite for out of town visitors or a luxurious staycation for those who are lucky enough to call Coronado home.
