With venues ranging from on the beach to in the clouds, the Rosarito Beach Hotel & Resort offers one of the best selections of wedding locales available anywhere in the world.
With over 500 rooms and suites, historic ballrooms, fine restaurants and the world-class Casa Playa Spa, the Rosarito Beach Hotel & Resort can accommodate weddings from small groups to parties of 500 or more. The hotel offers an experienced in-house wedding planner to help with all the details, from flowers to food to paperwork. All wedding coordinators are certified by the Mexico Tourist Board and Association for Wedding Professionals International.
Nearby attractions include Baja’s famous wine country, art galleries and shops; the resort is a perfect place to honeymoon as well as marry. The romantic Guadalupe Valley Wine Valley is 37 miles south of the resort.
Couples who choose to do so will become part of the region’s romantic history. Golden Hollywood couple Burgess Meredith and Paulette Goddard celebrated at the hotel. Prince Ali Khan courted his future bride Rita Hayworth there during long walks on the hotel beach.
Just a few miles down the road at Baja Studios, where the epic movie “Titanic” was filmed, Leonardo DiCaprio declared his love for Kate Winslet, announcing that he felt like the “king of the world.”
Ceremonies can be customized according to the bride’s and groom’s tastes and wedding party size. Venues include the oceanfront garden, on the beach as horses gallop, the hotel pier, the luxurious and historic Quixote Ballroom, and the 18th floor Sky Room and Terrace. That terrace, located on the top floor of the Pacifico Tower, which was built in 2008, offers breathtaking views of the ocean, pier and coastline for miles.
With several world-class restaurants, the resort offers catered receptions in a variety of venues, depending on wedding party size and personal tastes. The Casa Playa Spa is a great place for soon-to-be brides (and the whole bridal party) to pamper themselves and add an extra glow for the big day.
Customized packages can include private transportation to nearby airports, including San Diego’s Lindbergh Field, just 40 miles to the north.
First opened in 1925 as 12-room hotel on a pristine beach in what was to become the city of Rosarito, about 20 miles south of San Diego, the hotel has grown into a full-service resort with restaurants, bars, spa, fishing pier, entertainment and a wide assortment of guest activities.
For decades it was a popular Hollywood hotspot, and its guests have included Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Orson Wells, Rita Hayworth, John Wayne, Britney Spears and, most recently, Robert Redford, who was making a major movie at nearby Baja Studios.
For couples from the United States, wedding values at the resort are even more exceptional because of the dollar’s strength against the peso. Venue photos and more details are available by visiting rosaritobeachhotel.com and clicking on weddings.
