Alila Marea Encinitas Beach Resort Wins 2022 Best of LaCantina for Best Commercial Project


Alila Marea wins Best Commercial Project in this year’s Best of LaCantina competition.  Architizer sponsered the competition, with winners published on the Architizer website.  Project entries include submissions from architecture and design firms around the world, each integrating LaCantina’s doors and windows into their projects in innovative ways.

The Alila Marea Beach Resort debuted in early 2021 on San Diego’s North County coast as the Hyatt brand’s first new-build in the United States.  Located in the small beach community of Encinitas, Alila Marea is the perfect laid-back getaway with easy access to local comforts and high-end amenities. Its 130 guestrooms boast coastal and garden views of the magnificent oceanfront site, with LaCantina doors providing a seamless connection between inside and out. JWDA Architects worked closely with interior designer Mark Zeff on this noteworthy project.
