Mission Pacific Hotel, a JdV by Hyatt hotel, and The Seabird Resort, a Destination by Hyatt hotel have collaborated to offer its guests locally-driven experiences of Oceanside Beach. These two properties have been part of San Diego County as the largest oceanfront hotel project in 50 years within one of California’s first 14 cultural districts, hence, it will now provide locally-driven guest experiences encompassing different avenues. Some of these experiences are art infused with collaborating with the Oceanside Museum of Art. Hence, for example where upon entering Mission Pacific and The Seabird, guests are greeted by public spaces and guestrooms distinctly outfitted with 289 artworks and site installations curated by the Oceanside Museum of Art. Each property has its own distinct art collection, displaying works from along the cultural corridor between Los Angeles and Tijuana. Every art piece has been curated keeping in mind the community’s diverse talent. A total of 123 Southern California artists – who have cultural ties to the region – are represented across the collections.
Since surf culture is very much embedded in Oceanside’s way of life, there would be also private surf lessons from Duran Barr, a third-generation Oceanside resident and only local professional surfer and instructor of his kind. In collaboration with the North County Surf Academy, guests are given surfing equipment, a beach essentials gift bag, and a surfboard-shaping tutorial to round out their day on the pristine coast.
Also on offer is a Skate School program at Mission Pacific and The Seabird, which pays homage to Oceanside’s action sports culture. Guests can also take part in guided lessons from Neal Mims, an Olympic skateboard coach and talent behind Golden State Skateboarding, followed by a tour of local skateboard sites as well as a custom skateboard-making experience.
Some of the other experiences include six dining concepts along with a special beer created by Bagby Beer for the rooftop bar, The Rooftop at Mission Pacific, along with a rotating craft beer selection. Additionally, an “Après Surf” concept at The Rooftop compliments the Oceanside’s surf aesthetic. The area’s top surfers will lend a creative hand to Après Surf, complemented by an array of local beer selections and Baja-influenced fare for guests and surfers. At The Seabird’s signature farm-to-table restaurant, Piper, Bagby Beer will also debut a special California-style IPA.
Further on, Pacific Coast Spirits are working with The Seabird’s ocean-view bar, The Shore Room, to offer a line of spirits by distiller Nicholas Hammond. The small-batch craft distillery founded in Oceanside uses local ingredients to create products that mimic the mountain to ocean culture of California. Then the Seabird Resort has also collaborated with Oceanside-based cold-pressed juice company Suja Juice.
Similarly, The Seabird and Mission Pacific have worked with Oceanside-founded URBN WATER CO. to bring forth an alkaline refillable hydration program. Mission Pacific Hotel and The Seabird Resort are located near the Oceanside Transit Center while attractions include the Oceanside Arts District, Safari Park, San Diego Zoo, and Disneyland.
