L’Auberge Carmel is a full-service Relais & Châteaux property located in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea just blocks from the famed Carmel Beach. Originally built in 1929, the historic hotel is known for its graceful architecture, personalized guest services, European-style and elegance. Individually designed guest rooms feature the finest fabrics and linens and enlarged bath areas with radiant floor heating. The highlight of the hotel is its award-winning restaurant Aubergine. Executive Chef Justin Cogley, a Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef, and Executive Pastry Chef Yulanda Santos prepare skillful, ingredient-driven cuisine that celebrates the bounty of the region. Recent renovations were completed of the common areas and the rooms that brought with it an elegant aesthetic, once again making the hotel the leader in design within Carmel-by-the-Sea.
