There’s a very good reason why the owners of Surf & Sand Resort chose its simple yet compelling name. This wonderful West Coast retreat is surrounded by ocean and beach from almost every vantage point.
Set directly on 500 feet of exclusive Laguna Beach, all 154 guest rooms and 13 suites deliver panoramic and breathtaking views of rolling waves and golden sand, splashed by Southern California sunshine.
If ever there was a seaside hotel designed for the five senses, surely this is it – a place where you can see a vast expanse of Pacific Ocean, hear the surf crashing on the beach, smell the heady aroma of sea-salt in the air, taste delicious food and wines and get in touch with coastal nature at its best.
Surf & Sand Resort is a fusion of Mediterranean style with a breezy SoCal vibe. Ideal for families as much as couples looking for a romantic getaway, the resort offers the quintessential beach experience.
The interior décor has thankfully steered clear of coastal clichés, opting instead for a stylish palette of cool ocean hues in the comfortable guest accommodations.
Custom furnishings, original artworks, luxurious linens, contemporary comforts and fold-back windows opening to private decks encourage guests to kick back and enjoy the stunning ocean views.
By day, life revolves around the resort’s beachfront pool and its cabanas, chaise lounges and bar.
Enjoy an early morning coffee, quick breakfast or light lunch at the casual Pacific Perk café, and later sip sunset cocktails or after-dinner drinks under the stars at 15FiftyFive, complete with fire pits and expansive beach and water views.
The hotel’s signature Splashes Restaurant also lives up to its name. When the tide is up, the ocean is all around creating a magical setting for Executive Chef Ron Fougeray to deliver his first-rate California and Mediterranean-inspired seasonal menus.
If you can tear yourself away from the resort, Surf & Sand offers easy access to an array of activities and attractions, including water sports, hiking and biking trails, boutiques, art galleries and other fine dining options. SoCal never looked so good.
