Since 1927, The Cavalier has built its esteemed reputation as the finest resort on the beach. From this elegant locale, you can explore hundreds of local museums, amusements, and festivals all within one hour of The Cavalier. Yet the real attraction is the beach – the only private beach in all of Virginia. Enjoy a succulent five-course gourmet dinner in one of four terrific on-site restaurants or host a barbecue on the oceanfront deck. All oceanview or oceanfront rooms feature a distinctive and graceful Southern charm; take a dip in the indoor or outdoor Olympic-size swimming pools, visit the 1500-square-foot gym, play a few sets of tennis, or rent a bike for an unforgettable tour.


Bring the entire family for a safe, fun-filled beach getaway. The hotel hosts a daily kid's activity program as well as the seasonal Camp Cavalier; it's also home to the Kid's Cafe including live entertainment, a full playground, games, and the largest children's wading pool in Virginia Beach.


With more than 80 years of history behind it, the hotel has consistently established and reestablished the standard for luxury. It's a rare combination of sophistication and Southern charm, with Virginia's largest ballroom, five terrific restaurants, and more than 400 well-appointed guestrooms.
