Sarah Sbicca
Park Hyatt Aviara Chef Concierge

I have been fortunate enough to work as a Concierge for the past 25 years. I am extremely passionate about creating magical moments for each of our guests and exceeding all of their expectations.

How important is the Concierge team to the guests experience at your Resort?
I humbly feel that the Concierge is the heart and soul of the hotel. No matter what the guests concern, desire or question is the Concierge is always ready and available to help. We are very knowledgeable about not just our own department but every facet of the Resort and surrounding area. We pride ourselves on making the impossible possible for each of our guests; as long as it’s not illegal, immoral or unethical we can do it!

What do the Gold Keys you wear on your lapel each day represent?
The Gold Keys I wear represent my membership in Les Clefs d’Or which is French for “Keys of Gold.” Membership in Les Clefs d’Or offers Concierge professionals access to an international network of Concierge who I can call on to make things happen for our guests all over the world. By creating relationships across the globe we allow our guests to feel assured and well looked after, wherever their travels take them. I attend educational events and annual congresses both nationally and on the local level which allows me to remain on the cutting edge of the service profession.

What is your favorite dish at Park Hyatt Aviara?
My absolute favorite dish is the Rigatoni Short Rib Bolognese from our signature Italian restaurant, Vivace. Our Chefs make all of the pasta fresh each day and use only the best organic ingredients tossed in our special slow braised beef short ribs and veal Bolognese. Being Italian, this dish brings me back to my childhood and I can never get enough of it!

What is a hidden treasure at Park Hyatt Aviara?
The best kept secret of our property is just a hop, skip and a jump away from our front doors. If you take the guest shuttle down to the Aviara Golf Club entrance you will find the trailhead for the Batiquitos Lagoon walking path. This is a beautiful two mile trail that takes you through a natural bird sanctuary where you can see over 185 different species of birds, 65 different species of fish and a variety of other animals including frogs, lizards and insects. If you close your eyes and listen to the sounds of the Lagoon you can be anywhere your imagination will take you, all without leaving our property.

How/why did you become interested in working as a Concierge?
After college graduation my best friend and I traveled through Europe. I noticed how much confidence and power the concierge exuded; they seemed to have all the answers. I was drawn to this career path because my experience with Concierge in Europe was so positive, and I love to travel.

Tell us about a VIP experience your guests can only have in San Diego?
Every July the Del Mar Racetrack, which is a famous horse racing track that has played host to some of Hollywood’s biggest names over the years, opens for its summer season. We can get our guests exclusive access to the Del Mar Turf Club which is a member-only club for the tracks elite so they can bet on the ponies in style!

What kind of activities are your guests looking to do while in San Diego?
I often tell people when they visit Park Hyatt Aviara they don’t even need a car. We are a destination within a destination and offer something for everyone right here on property including tennis, golf, Aviara Kids academy during the summer months, family and adult only pools, Spa, Hair Salon, five restaurants and more! If people do want to get out and explore, often families will visit Legoland, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We also can arrange surfing lessons or trips to the beach so they can visit the biggest attraction of all that is right in our backyard: the Pacific Ocean.

Describe your perfect day in San Diego?
I enjoy beginning each day with a nice workout so I would recommend a brisk walk around our Batiquitos Lagoon trail to get your day started off right! I thoroughly enjoy the numerous farmers markets that are held every day all around San Diego County and offer some of the freshest produce, flowers and snacks. I would follow it up with a trip to my favorite spot, the Self Realization Garden in Encinitas. This gorgeous garden overlooks the ocean from high atop a cliff making it one of the best views in San Diego! My perfect day would end by listening to live music in the Lobby Lounge and a delicious dinner in Vivace.

What is your favorite museum in San Diego?
My favorite museum is located right here in Carlsbad, The Museum of Making Music. The museum helps make the world more musical by providing interactive opportunities to learn about musical heritage and try out all of the different instruments. It’s educational and entertaining! They have frequent concerts that feature different instruments that are truly delightful.
