Best Meetings & Event Venues at Fairmont Grand Del Mar

Exercise the mind, feed the soul.

Combine business with luxe R&R in our Mediterranean resort setting for inspired meetings, conferences, executive retreats, and team building. Rejuvenated by a hike through the canyon and a round of 18 holes at The Grand Golf Club, your team will be ready to get down to business.

Contact us to plan your custom corporate gathering. We can help develop your vision for your event while accommodating your budget.

For whatever you’re planning, we’ve got room — 249 spacious, well-appointed rooms that is. Our resort can welcome groups of up to 600 guests, with more than 20,000 square feet of flexible event space: from intimate board meetings and indulgent incentive trips, to branded golf tournaments and holistic wellbeing retreats.

While you and your guests will likely want to explore San Diego, there’s really no need to leave the resort if you don’t want to. Your group can play championship golf, enjoy exclusive spa treatments and dine five-star. Guests can swim in four heated pools, stroll the delightful gardens, dance or catch a comedy show at Club M, gather for cocktails with a view on the terrace, hike, bike, ride, and play tennis — all right here.

Exceptional Event Venues

All of our meeting areas, dining rooms, salons and auditoriums are beautiful and grand with exquisite detailing and Old World panache, complementing the resort’s Mediterranean style. Our meeting and event spaces are equally flexible, with stylish indoor event rooms seamlessly integrated with the outdoors, airy high ceilings and roomy terraces as well as the latest audio-visual technology. Our attentive staff is adept at hosting large groups, which means you can step back, focus on the event and let us take care of all the details.

Manchester Salon

Manchester Salon

Elevate your large-group event in the high style of the Manchester Salon. Detailed woodwork, hand-stenciled ceilings, chandeliers and large arched windows with garden and golf views set the tone. Though the room is large, with 2,300 square feet of inviting space, it feels intimate and private. There are two handcrafted stone fireplaces: one inside and one on the 1,910-square-foot terrace. Lead breakout sessions in the fresh air, shaded from the sun during the day, or mix and mingle under the stars in the evening.

Reflection Lawn

Reflection Lawn

Host your group’s breakfast, lunch or twilight reception outside surrounded by green hills, manicured gardens, and our serene reflection pool animated with arcing fountains. The outdoor space spans 2,500 square feet, with ample room for conversation and connection in and around the pool and gazebo. For an especially memorable evening, start with cocktails on the lawn, then walk nearby to dine in the softly lit Wine Rooms and Cellar in the company of some 3,500 bottles.



Capella is a true original and very distinctive. With the antique timbered ceiling and leaded windows, this one-of-a-kind space spells sanctuary. Accents such as ornate chandeliers, polished marble, dark woods, imported stone and stained glass create an artful, exotic ambiance — a little Italian chapel, a little Arabian Nights. The vaulted architecture lends a personal feel, though the space can accommodate gatherings of 350 or dinner for as many as 240 guests.

Exquisite Banquet Menus

No large-scale event is too elaborate or extravagant for our seasoned team of professionals. Tea service for 200? Five-course chef’s plated dinner staged under the setting sun? We are at your service. Expect customized menus that are inventive, visually appealing and diverse — all seasonal and locally sourced using only the finest quality ingredients, of course.
