Montage Laguna Beach

Montage Laguna Beach
Craftsman grace and timeless coastal beauty

With works by noted Californian artists in the reception area and guest rooms and a classic wood-and-stone Arts and Crafts design, the ultra-luxurious oceanfront Montage Laguna Beach celebrates the Orange County town’s long tradition as an arts colony.

Pacific breezes wash through a sun-splashed lobby, where a balcony takes in views of bluff-top gardens, secluded coves, and Santa Catalina Island in the distance. That is the same view you will enjoy from airy rooms as pretty and inviting as a summer beach house.

Then again, even the most lavish beach house does not have a spa offering caviare facials. Welcome to Spa Montage, a 20,000-square-footretreat featuring dry redwood saunas, fireplace lounges and an ocean-view swimming pool, in addition to its personalised skin and body treatments.

The resort’s wellness offerings fit the setting, from Beach Boot Camp and Pilates in the Park to SurfSET, a class that utilises real surfing techniques to build balance and strength (classes are complimentary for guests). Popular local studio Ritual Yoga also offers a variety of practices for an additional fee.

Things stay luxurious with California-inspired contemporary French cuisine and modern Arts-and-Crafts-style beach cottage design at Studio, the Montage’s signature restaurant. The more casual Loft Bar offers panoramic Pacific views with all-day dining menus that include everything from cold-pressed detox juice to a cheese bar with more than 50(!) options. If you'd prefer to stay poolside, order seafood tacos, sizeable salads or a Frosé All Day cocktail from Mosaic Bar and Grille.

Whether it’s manicured beach towns or celebrated theme parks, all framed by oceanfront towns and luxury yachts, “The OC” stands out as one of the state’s most iconic destinations. The always-amazing Disneyland Resort, roughly a 1-hour drive south of L.A. and 2 hours north of San Diego, continues to be one of the best-loved theme parks in the world, while Knott’s Berry Farms and other OC attractions amp up the fun meter.

“Surfing is like golf. . . it keeps knocking you down. But when you stay with it and catch that wave. . . magic.”  --actor Dennis Quaid
