Sprawling across 30 acres atop a coastal bluff, Montage Resort Laguna Beach offers guests seemingly endless luxury and comfort. Hailed for their superlative customer service, the employees of Montage provide all guests with five-star service. With its craftsman-style architecture and an array of authentic artwork by noted California artists, the resort welcomes guests with a sophisticated yet understated style.
All 248 guest rooms offer ocean views, most with private balconies or patios to take in the panoramic vistas. Rooms are designed with comfort and elegance in mind, from dark wood furnishings and coastal color schemes to feather-top beds and deep-soaking tubs. Candles and lavish bath amenities offer a chance for in-room indulgence.
Guests that prefer to relax in the spa will not be disappointed with the luxurious 20,000-square-foot facility. Indoor and outdoor treatment rooms offer spa guests a range of wellness experiences and therapies. Spa patrons are invited to enjoy amenities such as the adults-only lap pool, relaxation room, waterfall whirlpool, and steam room, among others. The expansive fitness center’s floor to ceiling windows keep guests engaged with breathtaking ocean vistas.
Three onsite restaurants tempt vacationers with a variety of culinary delicacies. Guests can dine poolside at the Mosaic Bar & Grille, a family-friendly venue with California-beach fare. For all-day dining, The Loft restaurant offers creative American cuisine including an interactive cheese bar and The Loft Bistro, an intimate bar area. French-cuisine-inspired Studio extends a fine dining option to those wanting an elegant evening setting.
Another popular feature of Montage Laguna Beach is the Mosaic Pool, featuring intricate tile work in a stunning outdoor setting. Poolside cabanas are available to rent and a multitude of comfortable pool chairs offer a place to lounge. An adjacent children’s pool and play area keep younger guests occupied.
Families can also make use of the kids’ programs for toddlers through teenagers. Adults and kids alike can enjoy the multitude of nearby activities from golfing to tennis, whale watching and kayak tours, jet ski rentals, sailing, and more. The resort’s network of paved paths invite guests to walk or jog amidst the natural tropical vegetation while listening to the waves crash on Treasure Island Beach below. Notable Southern California attractions, Disneyland, SeaWorld, Legoland, and Universal Studios Hollywood, are also available nearby for day trips. That is, if guests can pull themselves away from the luxurious Montage Laguna Beach.
This luxurious Montage Resort opened in February 2003 and is the flagship property of the Montage Resorts. This site is so stunning that it’s hard to believe that it was home to a mobile home park for many years. Some maps still show the Treasure Island Trailer Park that existed before the resort.
