Historic CA Hotel Creates Ballroom, Indoor/Outdoor Venues

Chaminade Resort & Spa has finished a two-phase renovation as the central California icon nears its 90th birthday.

Chaminade Resort & Spa has been restored to its former Spanish Revivalist glory after a $10 million renovation. Set on a 300-acre campus above Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz, the 1930s property upgraded its 156 rooms in the first phase of the renovation; they now have new bathrooms, furnishings, and a fresh color palette. Located in 11 villas spaced around the property for privacy, many guest rooms have balconies and patios, and guests have easy access to the three-mile redwood walking trail, tennis courts, golf course, and outdoor swimming pool.

There’s a newly created 2,800-square-foot Seascape Ballroom on the ground floor with access to a courtyard, an event patio with a fire pit, and views of Monterey Bay. Chaminade has nine other meeting rooms plus a new signature restaurant, The View, featuring a large fireplace and a terrace for outdoor dining. There’s also an event lawn with fire pits for evening receptions.

The hotel’s new lobby is flooded with natural light from an arched glass ceiling, while a grand staircase boasts Spanish tiles and wood beams.

Chaminade Resort & Spa is 34 miles south of Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport and 62 miles south of San Francisco International Airport.
