Why We Like This Place

Breathtaking views of Newport Harbor, Newport Back Bay, and the Pacific Ocean, are just part of what makes the Island Hotel a standout Newport Beach wedding venue. A recent renovation, from the marble entry to the vibrant new colors splashed throughout the guest rooms, has transformed this property into a chic, modern retreat. The moment your guests arrive, they’ll experience the casual elegance of “The Center of Coastal Luxury.”

Have your celebration here, and you’ll appreciate all the amenities. On the big day, separate suites are reserved for the bride and groom so that each can unwind and get ready in style. For additional renewal and relaxation, the hotel’s spectacular 4,000-square-foot spa offers a plethora of soothing massages, facials and beauty treatments. And, of course, Island Hotel’s catering team is dedicated to making sure your event reflects your vision and unfolds flawlessly.

For weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners and post-celebration brunches, there’s an array of options. Large affairs work well in the stunning Ballroom, where a soft color palette of gold, tan and sage green provides a neutral backdrop, and cascading crystal chandeliers add a touch of glamour. The adjoining private prefunction room is ideal for mingling and passing hors d’oeuvres, while you and your photographer take photos elsewhere on the hotel’s verdant grounds.

More intimate receptions are held in the sun-filled Cabana Room, a sophisticated space with Murano glass chandeliers, decorative art panels, and abundant light. The room transitions seamlessly from indoors to outdoors through folding glass doors that open to a spacious, gently heated terrace, where guests can enjoy the fresh air and lush landscaping year-round.

Whichever spaces you choose to host your event, you’ll be treated to superior service and culinary excellence. Out-of-town guests will also love their accommodations in spacious rooms or suites—most with coastal views—as well as the heated pool and all the services of the on-site fitness center and spa. For anyone in your party who wants to explore the area, the hotel is close to everything that defines upscale Orange County—sparkling beaches, championship golf courses, maritime recreation in nearby Newport Harbor and world-class shopping at Fashion Island.

No matter what the occasion, you’ll be delighted with Island Hotel’s resort-like atmosphere and professional staff.
