Designed in Moroccan architecture and décor, Casa Monica Resort, located in historic downtown St. Augustine, is the epitome of sophistication. One step inside the elegant lobby, you will know this will be a special stay.
Built in 1888, Casa Monica has lived several lives. It’s current incarnation started in 1999 after a massive renovation by the Kessler Collection of Hotels. The Kessler Collection, known for exquisite and detailed restorations, brought Casa Monica back to – and maybe even exceeded, its original glory, Casa Monica is the most beautiful jewel in downtown. Not only is it a luxury hotel with majestic history, the service is top-notch and the dining is exquisite.
Every one of the Moroccan-inspired guest rooms or suites is a true treat. Your choices include a plush guest room with a king bed to a three-bedroom suite on multiple levels and a commanding view of Matanzas Bay.
If you are a member of Marriott’s loyalty program, this boutique hotel is part of their Autograph Collection, so you can use points to book a stay here.
Tucked nicely into an interior courtyard, the pool area offers a wonderful escape. This elevated courtyard provides the perfect place for a midday hideaway. Go for a cooling swim or lounge poolside in a private, shaded cabana.
Casa Monica’s Poseidon Spa is a modern Moroccan styled haven for the sole purpose of pampering. Choose from a range of treatments using elements from the earth and sea provided by a well-trained and caring therapist.
An experience at Cobalt Lounge will have you believing you’ve been transported to Morocco. An ornate chandelier hangs above your table surrounded by white leather chairs in a room replete with archways and columns. In this sultry bar, you can sip on a cocktail and nibble on light fare and feel as if you’re in Casablanca.
Just past the lounge, you’ll find Costa Brava. This restaurant serves up Mediterranean cuisine specializing in fresh seafood and prime steak cuts. Be sure to pair your lunch or dinner with the perfect selection from their extensive wine list.
Casa Monica’s downtown location puts you in the midst of historic downtown St. Augustine. Many attractions are walkable from the front steps of the resort, including Lightner Museum and Flagler College. A few blocks away you can visit a national monument, Castillo de San Marcos, the oldest masonry fort in the US.
Casa Monica Resort and Spa is more than enough reason to visit the historic city of St. Augustine.
