San Diego



The Bahia Resort Hotel has everything you need to ensure that your wedding celebration is a dream come true. Nestled among 14 picturesque acres overlooking San Diego’s beautiful Mission Bay, this luxurious resort boasts numerous event venues of all sizes and styles. Its elegantly appointed indoor spaces—the Mission Ballroom, the Del Mar, the Shell, and the Ventana—can accommodate intimate parties of up to 60 guests or lavish celebrations of up to 500. Though they are of varying designs and dimensions, all four rooms feature breathtaking bay views and sophisticated décor. For your ceremony, the Bahia Resort Hotel features two unparalleled ceremony sites: the antique gazebo, a secluded area surrounded by lush gardens, and the private beach, a gorgeous, peaceful spot with phenomenal views. For a truly unique celebration, you may also choose to host your wedding day festivities on one of the resort’s stunning sternwheelers. Its Victorian-style paddlewheel boat, the Bahia Belle, is charming and intimate, while its other boat, the William D. Evans, is grand and luxurious. However you decide to celebrate your special day, you can be sure that it will be a spectacular event at the Bahia Resort Hotel.
