Mission Bay – The Bahia Resort Hotel has joined SeaWorld San Diego as title sponsors of Mission Beach Centennial, a celebration of the seaside community that was adopted by the Common Council of San Diego on December 14, 1914. The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, a Mission Beach neighbor and sister property of the Bahia, also will sponsor the year-long commemoration. Monthly events will begin with a plaque dedication in March and will culminate with a festival in September at Belmont Park.

“The Bahia and Catamaran are synonymous with Mission Beach and we are filled to the brim with joy to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime celebration,” said Grace Evans Cherashore, President/CEO of Evans Hotels, which owns and operates the resorts. “We look forward to honoring this special occasion with beach locals, all San Diegans, and visitors to our great city.”

“The Mission Beach Centennial Committee is grateful to have the Bahia and Catamaran step up to the plate to help ensure a jubilant celebration for this proud community,” said Committee Co-Chairs Wendy Crain and Debbie Watkins. “They are a large part of the fabric of Mission Beach.”

The Bahia Resort Hotel and Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa brought more than 420,000 guests to Mission Beach in 2013.

The Bahia was the first commercial lessee on Mission Bay, opening in 1953 with 52 rooms after the City of San Diego offered several parcels of land for commercial development. The Evans family then acquired the right to develop the land around Sail Bay for the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa in 1958.

A plaque dedication and resident walk will kick off the Centennial on Saturday, March 22. Other events include Taste of Mission Beach in April, surf contest in May, Father’s Day car show in June, and sandcastle building in August. Details will be announced closer to each event date.

The Bahia Resort Hotel and the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa will have a presence at each event with giveaways and specials for room stays, treatments at Catamaran Spa, and dining at Café Bahia and The Atoll.
