Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Offering pristine beachfront luxury and unparalleled calm, this full-service resort is renowned for both its prime Laguna Beach location and its proximity to the ocean. The event spaces, designed in a Mediterranean beach-luxe style, are adorned with a handsome and tasteful mix of blond hardwoods, airy hues of sand and cream, coffered ceilings, lots of whitewashed wood-shuttered windows, and unique works of art.
  • The Ocean and Catalina Terraces are perched right above the sand, with clear glass railings allowing an uninterrupted view of the azure waves and Catalina Island beyond; both are lovely for a ceremony or reception. Of course, you can also say "I do" right on the white sand beach, steps away from the rolling surf.
  • Your guests won't want to leave (and they don't have to!). All luxurious accommodations have seaview balconies with commanding views of the Pacific Ocean—perfect for soft sea breezes and spectacular sunset vistas. You won't be able to resist adding a few more days to your stay for some relaxation time at the plush AquaTerra Spa, or exploring Laguna's top-tier shopping and galleries, a short walk from the resort.
