I recently got to visit The Monsaraz San Diego. It was such a beautiful hotel and so cool to walk around and see everything they have to offer. As I walked around the property, I felt like I had found a hidden gem in Point Loma. It was interesting to hear about how they tied in the history within Point Loma to the details within the hotel and its decor. It was also fun to learn how The Monsaraz San Diego offers some private spaces for events and weddings.
Point Loma was first discovered by Portuguese settlers in the early 16th century and is referred to as the place “where California began.” The Monsaraz merges the historic with the modern to connect you with all the best San Diego and Point Loma offers.
The Monsaraz San Diego is just steps from Fisherman’s Landing; they’re less than five minutes from downtown and Sea World and under two miles from Sunset Cliffs beach. San Diego’s iconic restaurants like Point Loma Seafood are within walking distance. The Monsaraz offers a beautiful restaurant, courtyard with locally inspired events, a partnership with local coffee roaster Dark Horse Coffee, and a cocktail bar to complete the relaxed San Diego vibe.
The Westerly Public House is a restaurant located inside The Monsaraz that seats 60 with a Cali-Aussie style. This restaurant showcases the flavors and spirit of the coastal towns of Venice Beach and Bondi Beach, and it is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
There are 92 guest rooms in The Monsaraz San Diego and 3 of those are suites. The room design is a mid-century modern playing into Point Loma’s history coupled with the coastal spirit of San Diego.
It was so fun to see the spaces they have for weddings and events. The Monsaraz San Diego features a 4,000 sq. ft. Interior open-air courtyard and is such a fun space for all types of events. The Westerly Public House Courtyard has the capacity to accommodate up to 150 guests. When adding a dancefloor to that space it fits up to 100 guests seated in round tables of ten. If you’re having a more intimate wedding you can choose to walk down the aisle with the San Diego skyline as your backdrop in their Hideaway space. Set up for ceremony it can seat up to 30 guests.
The Westerly Public House is also a great place for a rehearsal dinner. With its existing furniture, it can accommodate up to 60 guests making it such a fun place for your rehearsal dinner.
The Monsaraz San Diego is so charming and makes for such a great spot to hang out, stay for a vacation, or a staycation. It’s also super charming for weddings and events.
The Monsaraz is a calm, colorful haven that nourishes souls through connection and the experience of old-world charm, amid the coastal culture of modern-day Point Loma.
