Start a new ritual at Pelican Hill

Gather with friends to celebrate a new year and a new ritual as you indulge in time together.  Whether you seek a day of pampering at The Spa at Pelican Hill, 18 holes of ocean-view Fazio-designed golf with your group or an epicurean experience as fresh and delicious as the ingredients in each dish, let Pelican Hill be your space to escape together and start new rituals to enjoy all year long.

From the moment of arrival, you’ll experience a place that feels much further away than it really is with its graceful Italian architecture, panoramic ocean views, lush Mediterranean landscape, a 136′ circular Coliseum Pool and freshly made pastas.

Managing Director

  • GiuseppeLama


    Growing up in his native northern Italy, Giuseppe Lama was immersed in the traditions of hospitality from an early age. He was raised in a restaurant family that ran a very popular trattoria in the historic town of Faenza. The finest hotel school in Italy was located a short drive away at Lake Como, and while a student there he cut his teeth in the hotel business at one of the finest, most acclaimed boutique hotels in the world, Villa D’Este.

    After garnering early experience at hotels in Bermuda and the Isle of Man, in 1989 Lama was offered what was supposed to be a short-term assignment in the United States. It turned into a long-term career here, spanning nearly two decades managing, most recently, iconic establishments such as Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa and Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego before joining the executive team at The Resort at Pelican Hill.
