Situated on a dramatic 50-foot bluff, the 248-room Montage Laguna Beach embodies the era when the California Arts and Crafts movement began. The sprawling rooms, suites and beach bungalows display local artwork in a minimum of 500 square feet, along with private balconies, marble baths and luxurious feathertop beds. The 20,000-square-foot spa is a jewel, with eucalyptus steam rooms, dry redwood saunas and fireplace lounges. Guests can explore 30 beautiful acres with white sand beaches, or lounge by the pool, which features private cabanas, a whirlpool and a kids play area. The Mosaic pool bar serves California-inspired dishes such as local halibut with sweet corn sauce and blackened half chicken with corn tortillas. Two additional dining venues grant panoramic views: Studio, an elegant space that serves modern French cuisine, and the Loft, which offers creative American fare prepared on a six-foot wood-burning rotisserie.
In the Area
Laguna Beach has an abundance of art and culture, and during July and August the Festival of Fine Arts produces the Pageant of the Masters, a theatrical extravaganza in which art comes to life onstage. Visitors can also catch an evening performance at the Laguna Playhouse, a historic theater that was founded in 1920 and continues to showcase outstanding talent. One unique attraction is the tide pools at Glenn E. Vedder Ecological Reserve. Pack a picnic lunch and look closely: The pools are full of colorful marine life. There is no shortage of shops and art galleries to peruse, and the Laguna Art Museum has several impressive collections. For casual dining in town, Nick’s Laguna Beach serves everything from deviled eggs and burgers to perfectly prepared seafood and steaks.
How to Get There
Yesterday we arrived for our 35th anniversary at the Montage Laguna Beach. Unfortunately, i had mistaken the "Loft" for the "Studio". The staff was so accommodating. Within minutes, they rearranged tables to set up a sweet table for two.
Please be advised, the loft is not ocean front, but still beautiful. The Studio is fine dining in an ocean front setting. My many thanks to the staff at studio yesterday. Fabulous Food and Spectacular Service.
Well kept grounds, beautiful view, ideal location! Get your hair washed/styled at the salon. You won’t be sorry (the wash chairs have massagers)! Had a beautiful morning run down to the beach and back up through the grounds. Can’t wait to go back to this place.
The Hotel and Views are Beautiful, on the other hand, the service is poor, Staff are polite but not well trained. The Hotel seems not to care about top notch experiences. If you are looking for something great, choose “Monarch Resort “ instead, which is 5 min away.
