Why a Staycation Is the Best Vacation at the Retreat

Why the Sycuan Casino Resort and the Retreat are Your Premier Staycation Destinations

When you have a little time off from work, or life in general, you want to make the most of it. Many of us have dreams of taking exotic vacations and visiting destinations that are a once in a lifetime  opportunity. However, there’s a lot to be said about staying close to home, relaxing, and taking in some of the local culture you don’t always get a chance to enjoy. 

If you live in or near San Diego, especially in a community like El Cajon, one could make the argument that everything you could possibly want in a vacation was already in the palm of your hands. From the gorgeous sights, to the local culture, and vibrant nightlife, El Cajon and the San Diego area has a lot to offer to both tourists and natives alike. Just because you decide on a staycation doesn’t mean that you should skip out on everything this region of California has to offer and making the most of your experience starts with making your reservations at the Sycuan Casino Resort  and soaking up some serious indulgence at the Retreat.

Why the Sycuan Casino Resort Is the Perfect Backdrop for your Staycation 

The Sycuan Casino Resort is located in El Cajon, California – a city that’s surrounded by incredible mountain-scapes and a short drive from downtown San Diego. You could say that El Cajon is the perfect blend of beautiful, scenic nature backdrops and the vibrant cultural and entertainment options that the San Diego area of California is known for. 

The Sycuan Casino Resort is a destination in itself. OF course, there’s the casino floor, but the entertainment and amenities don’t stop there.  You’ll also find a selection of dining options that will satisfy every craving – whether you’re looking for something upscale and elegant, or just a little nook to sit back and have your coffee as you catch up on your reading or podcast listening. 

You’ll also find plenty of ways to pamper yourself at the Sycuan Resort Hotel. Along with a full-service spa, the Sycuan offers an exceptional way for you to take a break from reality and sink into luxury at the Retreat Pool and Cabanas.

About Retreat Pool and Cabanas in the Sycuan Casino Resort

The Retreat Pool and Cabanas in the Sycuan Casino Resort is all about taking the time to pamper yourself and to escape from everyday life. At the Retreat, you’ll find gorgeous pool areas with crystal water just begging for your toes to be dipped in. You’ll also find the Retreat’s Lazy River, which is a slow-moving river that winds it’s way through the Retreat, taking you on a slow, leisurely tour of the surroundings as you lazily sip away at a decadent drink. 

The Retreat is the perfect spot for a little getaway because as you lounge in the lazy river or in a poolside daybed or cabana, you won’t feel at all like you’re a mere few minutes away from home. The Retreat truly is an oasis where you can slip away into another world and enjoy the life of luxury at the Sycuan Casino Resort.

Lounging poolside at the Retreat and soaking up some glorious Californian vitamin D is hard work, so of course you’re going to work up a bit of an appetite – and a thirst. The Retreat Pool and Cabanas has you covered with a menu of delectable nibbles and light plates, along with a cocktail menu that will leave your mouth watering for more. 

You might order up some classic poolside favorites, like shrimp cocktail or a spicy buffalo chicken wrap. There’s also plenty on the menu if you’re in the mood for something a little different, like the big eye tuna poke, or a selection of fresh, seasonal fruit that is frozen and deliciously refreshing. 

Speaking of refreshing, there’s really no better way to enjoy your staycation that hanging by the pool and sipping on an incredible cocktail – or two. The Retreat offers a selection of grown up poolside refreshers, along with some irresistible margaritas and mules. Like to keep it simple? Don’t worry, the Retreat also offers a great selection of your favorite beers and wines.
