Welcome Reception, Orientation and Cocktail Party Included with all Safaris.

Included with all La Vista Safaris
Enhance your journey from a centered place within yourself ~ join a yoga session. Let the serenity of Carmel's environment relax you as you extend, breathe, and stretch. Our yoga sessions offer a perfect break, and welcome both beginners and experienced yogis. The style is a combination of the traditional yoga format, loosely structured to enable you to experiment with the postures, respond to your individual needs, and stay within your own comfort level. Yoga sessions are held at the Carmel Yoga Center, a few blocks from the hotel. 

Wine Tasting at La Bicyclette
Included in all La Vista Safaris
The Georis family's tiny, rustic, French restaurant features an outstanding selection of their own wines as well as selections from all over the world. La Bicyclette's impressively large wine list is shared with their sister restaurant, Casanova. Upon ordering a bottle, patrons are often charmed by the sight of a server riding across town on a vintage bicycle to fetch wine from a shared cellar. It doesn't get more charming than that.

The human touch – the oldest, simplest form of therapy – restores us physically, mentally, and spiritually. The spa facilities are located at your hotel. We recommend booking at least three weeks in advance to guarantee the best scheduling options.

Shopping and Exploring Carmel
Encouraged at all Safaris. You are welcome to stroll on the beach, visit the art galleries or indulge in shopping the endless rows of boutiques at any time. Carmel-by-the-Sea is perfectly walkable and friendly. If the mood strikes you, feel free to do your own exploring.

Spend some time extra time in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Visitors from all over the world come to see the Seven Wonders of Monterey County, including the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the historic Carmel Mission, Carmel's white sand beach, scenic 17 Mile Drive, and many parks. Also, consider Carmel's 100+ galleries, endless boutiques, and world class restaurants. Your concierge can assist with arrangements and directions to the best of the region.
If you're considering adding days onto your safari, we recommend planning ahead, as rooms are not always available last-minute. Just let us know if you'd like to book an extra night at your hotel.
