The Resort at Pelican Hill

The Resort at Pelican Hill

Indulge in Mediterranean elegance, world-class golf courses, and five-star service at this Newport Beach resort

Tuscan elegance paired with panoramic ocean views is central to the eternal allure of The Resort at Pelican Hill. Nestled along the Pacific in exclusive Newport Beach, the resort spans more than 500 acres and is surrounded by an additional 50,000 acres of protected land in Orange County. A stay at Pelican Hill is a true escape into a luxurious world filled with manicured olive groves, handcrafted cocktails, pristine pools, luxurious spa services, and some of the best golfing in the world.

The property includes 204 bungalows and 128 villas, all of which feature limestone fireplaces, marble soaking tubs, and private terraces. Stay in one of the stand-alone villas and you’ll enjoy the added perks of 24-hour butler service, a fully stocked chef’s kitchen, and exclusive clubhouse access.

Golfers of all levels flock to Pelican Hill Golf Club, designed by legendary course architect Tom Fazio. With jaw-dropping ocean views, the club’s two championship courses are listed by Golf Digest as among America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses. Enjoy the generous discounts for resort guests, or book a two-night stay and opt for the Fazio Unlimited Package to play your heart out.

Orange County’s sunny climate creates the perfect excuse to lounge at the resort’s show-stopping Coliseum Pool. Spanning 136 feet in diameter, the Coliseum is one of the largest circular pools in the world, surrounded by cozy cabanas and staffed with attendants ready to bring you a Fresh Berry Collins. The pool’s radiant blue cast accents its more than 1 million hand-cut glass mosaic tiles. The Spa at Pelican Hill Resort provides additional pampering with 22 private treatment rooms, saltwater soaking tubs, and herbal-infused steam rooms.

While Pelican Hill provides an ideal backdrop for a romantic getaway, the resort’s exceptional service extends to guests of every age. Child-size robes and stuffed pelicans are available upon request, and little ones can work off energy in the bubble jet fountain at The Camp Pelican Clubhouse. A 15-minute walk away, Crystal Cove State Park offers more than 3 miles of beautiful beach the whole family can enjoy.
