San Diego Activities at the Bahia Hotel


We’re not landlocked…we’re waterlocked!

With Mission Bay surrounding the resort and Mission Beach only a block away, we offer endless popular San Diego activities that will fill your day to the brim. Resort Watersports is located a short walking distance just west of the Marina building at the Bahia Hotel. Their outlet provides rentals for sailboats, kayaks, and paddleboards for use in Mission Bay. Guests choosing to venture into the waves of the Pacific Ocean can rent surfboards and boogie boards. Bicycles and segways are also available to cruise up and down the boardwalks of Mission Bay, Mission Beach, and Pacific Beach.

The Bahia Belle, a turn-of-the-century sternwheeler, provides complimentary cruises with nightly entertainment on Mission Bay. For those looking to stay on land, we offer an Olympic-sized swimming pool, Jacuzzi, tennis courts, shuffle board courts, and kids’ arcade.

Enjoy these resort activities!

Catamaran Spa

Looking for complete relaxation and rejuvenation? Take a short, one-mile ride around Mission Bay to the Catamaran Spa at our sister property, the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa. San Diego’s only beachfront spa is available for all Bahia Resort Hotel guests (and we’ll provide complimentary transportation), offering an exotic menu of practices with marine and botanical elements inspired from the South Pacific. Luxurious and therapeutic skin and body treatments include massages, rituals, and a full-service hair and nail salon. All spa treatments begin and end by sipping on artisan teas or fruit-infused waters in the peaceful relaxation lounge. Soaking in the secluded outdoor hot tub and resting in the steam room and sauna are also included in the lush spa experience. Spa guests also receive a personal locker with a robe and sandals and have access to the open-air fitness center overlooking Mission Bay.
