Amenities in the hotel include Relâche Spa & Salon, state-of the art fitness centre and recreational facilities.

A huge onsite 4.25-acre water park experience will feature waterslides, a lazy river, wave pool, giant water playground, surf simulator and multiple pools. The park will also house private cabanas and a pool bar.

The resort will contain nine restaurants and bars, including Old Hickory Steakhouse. a two–level sports bar, a hidden speakeasy and a marketplace.

Onsite work

The resort’s 487,913 sq ft convention centre is state-of-the-art and will contain flexible indoor and outdoor event spaces, restaurants and lounges, meeting rooms, elevated ballroom, and the largest exhibit hall in California, with dimensions of 520 x 300 ft.

Gaylord Chula Vista Resort & Convention Center will also boast three ballrooms, 62 breakout rooms, and an executive boardroom enhanced by state-of-the-art audiovisual technology, as well as immersive on-site experiences.
