Beyond the Mediterranean-style exterior of this perfectly manicured resort, you will find luxury but not ornate contemporary rooms and suites. This resort is all about casual elegance, if you like casual with a side of truly decadent pampering. Laboratoire Remède bath products perched on the edge of your oversize tub, private cabanas next to the turquoise swimming pool, and a private beach where you can sign up for surf lessons.
Sign up for a tee time to play on the resort’s acclaimed links-style course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. At the resort’s Spa Gaucin, take a yoga class, relax in the sauna, or get a treatment scented with orange blossoms. Keep the luxury pushed to the maximum with dinner at celebrity chef Michael Mina’s Stonehill Tavern, offering modern American cuisine.
Whether it is 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, about one hours’ drive south of Los Angeles and two 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 metre.
