Catalina Island reinvents itself

Santa Catalina Island is
being
reinvented this summer with the opening of the new Pavilion Hotel, the transformed Descanso Beach Club and Avalon
Grille, a new waterfront restaurant.

The Pavilion
Hotel
,
formerly the Pavilion Lodge, re-opened on May 14.
Luxury and
comfort fill this 71-room,
2-story
hotel. The upscale design uses the garden
courtyard area
to a private lanai for most of the
ground
level rooms.

These new rooms feature large doors leading into the
lanai,
making it the only hotel in Avalon where guests can relax in the comfort
of
their own private courtyard. The hotel offers two luxury
suites
with ocean views.

Descanso
Beach
Club
is completely
transformed
with new high-end amenities such as private cabana and chaise lounge
rentals.
The open-air restaurant will offer daytime and evening dining with fire
rings
on the beach and two outdoor bars.

The
Descanso Beach Club will also
serve as the new activity headquarters, where guests can rent kayaks,
stand-up paddle
boards, snorkeling and scuba gear, as well as book massages and golf tee
times,
plus all Discovery Tours. The Beach Club will be the staging area for
the new
Zip Line Eco Tour and Sea Trek Undersea Adventure.

Catalina Island
visitors also will have a new dining option. Guests will immerse
themselves in
the island experience while dining at this waterfront location, in the
center
of town across from the Green Pleasure Pier with views of Avalon Bay.

The Avalon
Grille

is a new American pub-style restaurant with central bar, high, open
architecture and indoor/outdoor patio seating. This new
restaurant
features classic American comfort food with a twist, paired with a world
class
selection of wines, micro-brew beers and cocktails in a casual and fun atmosphere.
