Airy elegance along the California coast

188 Rooms / 60 Suites

Reigning over Laguna Beach from its rugged cliff-top location, the stylish Montage Laguna Beach blends arts-and-crafts style with the luxury of a full-service resort. Rooms, suites and bungalows feature 400-thread-count linens and five-fixture marble bathrooms with a large shower and tub and private balconies or patios with ocean views. Guest room décor is bright and airy, with light-colored appointments befitting a resort by the sea.

The grounds of the hotel are irresistible. During the day, the crystal-blue pool is refreshing and relaxing; come evening, fire pits roar in the nighttime sky. There is a wide variety of ways to enjoy the stunning property, but one favorite is to visit the lobby bar for live music, delicious cocktails and a sunset for the ages. Even the arrival and departure experiences are notable, with a logoed cap gifted upon departure.

The spa and restaurant here are top-notch too. The full-range Five-Star Spa Montage has more than 20 treatment rooms and the poolside cabanas are decked out with flat-screen TVs and DVD/CD players. Five-Star Studio restaurant is California cuisine at its seaside best. The menu in the Craftsman-inspired space changes frequently, but you’ll always enjoy farm-fresh local bounty prepared with classic European technique — and a deep wine cellar.
