Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This luxurious resort, with its breezy, sundrenched vibes and its pristine coastal location, offers a lovely Mediterranean-inspired setting for your wedding. As the only waterfront Forbes Four-Star and AAA Four-Diamond resort in Newport Beach, you can expect impeccable service to match the spectacular setting.
  • Bordered by lush greenery and the sparkling, yacht-dotted bay, the Beachfront Lawn provides a secluded, upscale setting for your ceremony. Then, enjoy cocktails in one of the many other stunning event spaces, including the coastal-inspired Lighthouse, where oversized glass accordion doors bring in light ocean breezes, and the sophisticated Grand Ballroom, with 18-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and rich fabrics throughout.
  • Treat yourself (and your loved ones!) to a destination wedding. The full-service resort is flooded with amenities and activities From a romantic couple's massage at the on-site spa to a sunset gondola ride around the Harbor to an afternoon lounging with a cocktail on a poolside daybed, there's no shortage of things to keep you busy... or the opposite.
