Hyatt Carmel Highlands undergoes renovations

The Hyatt Carmel Highlands, which overlooks the Big Sur Coast and has 48 guestrooms, is undergoing transformations that will see changes made to the property’s restaurant Pacific's Edge, along with the guestrooms, lobby and bar area.

The renovations, started this January, will upgrade Pacific's Edge with new decor and a new 40-seat, 1,200-square-foot outdoor patio. The heated open-air space will allow al fresco dining and provide ocean views. When the refurbishments are complete, Pacific's Edge will merge with the hotel's bistro, California Market, to become one restaurant. The new venue is scheduled to open during the second quarter of 2016.

There will also be new furnishings, decor, color schemes, heating and air conditioning in the hotel's 48 rooms, including its 10 suites. The guestrooms' refreshed look will draw upon the hotel's upscale coastal ambience.
