“Where the waves of the Pacific meet 500’ of pristine white sand on the shoreline of Laguna Beach” is just the beginning of what you’ll experience at this amazing hotel. Every spacious guest room at this deluxe destination offers spectacular ocean views.
Your stay begins with a warm welcome from the friendly staff. From the Valet to the Concierge team, you can expect superior service delivered with a smile. Simply ask and they will do their best to make your visit as memorable as you wish it to be.
Tiled courtyards and walkways enhance the Spanish stucco décor. There are unexpected contemporary touches such as the shimmering green glass fountain. Comfortable cushioned benches beckon you to sit and enjoy the ocean vistas and the hills above. The heated pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and a unique glass fence which focuses on the ocean setting. The beach is accessed via a convenient stairway.
As you enter your guestroom, the sound of the surf fills the air. Close your eyes and dream of being adrift in the ocean. Open them up and you’ll think that you’re still asleep. The proximity to the Pacific is so close that you see nothing but water as you look out on your private balcony. Step outside to watch the waves while local surfers display their skills. You can watch with delight as the shore birds they play tag with the water.
Plantation shutters slide in place behind the glass balcony doors. You can adjust them to take advantage of the cooling ocean breezes which are used in lieu of air conditioning at this unique resort. When you combine the sound of the Pacific with the refreshing salt air, you can be assured of “sleeping like a baby” when you snuggle into your comfortable bed for the night.
The well appointed bathroom has a double sink which is separate from the shower/toilet area. There’s a bathtub if you want to settle in for a soothing soak. A lighted make up mirror and hair dryer are provided.
The rooms have a mini-bar and you can stay in touch via the high speed internet access. Settle into the comfortable seating area and you’ll never want to leave this relaxing setting.
A delightful turndown service is included. When you re-enter your room, you’ll hear gentle sounds from the CD player. On your bed are robes displayed with bottled water, chocolates and a breakfast menu if you wish to order in. It’s the perfect start to a memorable evening.
Splashes Restaurant looks out over the Pacific. You can enjoy your meal while listening to the surf below, or you can order room service from this location. For a change of venue, there are charming local restaurants that are within walking distance or a short drive away.
Onsite is the Aquaterra Spa. Its serene setting sets the mood for a wonderful spa experience. An enticing fragrance fills the air as you’re guided down the hallway to the waiting area. You can settle into the comfy chairs in front of the fireplace while sipping your complimentary beverage. As you listen to soothing spa music combined with subdued lighting and pleasant color palette, you’ll feel all of your cares drifting away. The adjacent courtyard has vine covered walls which provide privacy should you choose to relax on the lounge chairs outside.
The Aquaterra Spa offers a full range of massages, skin care and body treatments. You have your choice of enjoying your massage in a private treatment room, ocean side cabana or in the privacy of your resort room. No matter what you choose, you can expect the professional staff to provide incomparable service. There’s also an exercise facility with state of the art equipment and yoga studio.
The Laguna Beach Surf & Sand Hotel has grown from a 12 room destination opened in the 1940’s to a luxury 165 room resort. While it’s an amazing transformation, it does come with challenges should a guest be wheelchair bound. We cannot recommend this resort should you have no mobility as neither the beach nor pool is easily accessible.
Laguna Beach itself is a wonderful eclectic community. Established as an art colony in the early 1900’s, you can still see the influence of the artists who call Laguna home. Galleries and specialty shops are everywhere. Don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s too upscale for your taste. It’s the perfect blend of artistry in a fun and vibrant setting. Whether you’re a movie star or visitor on a budget, you’ll find plenty to see, do and dine at without breaking the bank.
The best part, all of this is yours a mere 35 minutes from Disneyland!! You can avoid the freeways and head to the Pacific Coast Highway where the Laguna Beach Surf & Sand Resort is conveniently located.
