Welcome to Villa Mara Carmel, a new 16-room luxury boutique hotel nestled in the Carmel Point neighborhood of Carmel-By-The-Sea. A newly remodeled property with a distinctly residential-inspired point of view, Villa Mara is an intimate, yet airy coastal getaway that caters to an adults-only clientele.

A quick stroll from the sands of Carmel Beach.

Villa Mara offers a residential-inspired experience in the storied neighborhood of Carmel Point, home to an architecturally diverse enclave of private homes. Approximately one mile from the city’s downtown stretch of boutiques, shops and restaurants, we’re also in close proximity to Mara Beach and the Carmel Mission, with views to Pebble Beach Golf Links from the nearest stretch of Carmel Beach.

Villa Mara’s fifteen guest rooms and signature suite are each named after a local historical figure, landmark or geographical highlight. Within, guests are enveloped in an airy yet comfortable setting, layered with detail and luxury touches at every turn.
