  • We are working with the Destination Management Company for off-site activities. Before we finalize any contracts, we ask that you acknowledge your interest in the activities being considered. Because of contractual obligations, we will cancel off-site activities that generate little to no interest. Please take time to consider and then indicate your and your guest’s interest. The offsite activities include lunch and a tour of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, off site dinner, and a whale watching adventure. (Please see descriptions and pricing listed below).
  • Resort room reservations will be made by each attendee using an online booking link which will be provided in your meeting reservation confirmation email. Please note that you must make your own reservations. Due to attrition, hotel reservations are non-refundable.

The Montage Laguna Beach epitomizes the relaxed class and beauty for which Southern California is known for. The property’s location (right along the shore just south of downtown Laguna Beach) is a particularly popular perk among guests. Accommodations at the hotel also include feather-top beds and marble bathrooms, not to mention beautiful turn-of-the-century decor and private terraces or balconies that overlook the ocean. But don’t plan on spending too much time in your room. In addition to enjoying the large beach area, you can lounge poolside, receive spa treatments and eat gourmet meals at one of three on-site restaurants. If you happen to be here for date night, recent guests say that the intimate atmosphere and the locally sourced California cuisine at Studio will set the tone for a romantic evening. There are also family programs for children, though previous visitors say that the upscale environment at Montage Laguna Beach is better suited for couples.

Montage Resort & Spa is a throwback to the Laguna Beach of the turn of the twentieth century, a conscious homage to the city’s birth as an artists’ colony. This is the Laguna Beach of the early 1900s, the romantic vision of design in complement with nature. The resort itself, with its winding pathways and classic stone architecture, is surrounded by lush gardens, shaded by tall trees, and sits atop a rugged, rocky bluff, overlooking the white sand beaches below. The interiors are liberally decorated with artworks, some contemporary, some dating back to the heyday of the Arts & Crafts movement, which is Montage’s main inspiration.

The beach and ocean views are one of Montage’s main attractions, and the guest rooms all feature patios or balconies with panoramic views. The interior style is a restrained, casual elegance, classic Californian, with subdued colors and details in dark wood. Public areas have views as well, through floor-to-ceiling windows in the Loft restaurant or from the Mosaic Grille’s terrace, on the edge of the bluff fifty feet above the Pacific.

Montage’s spa overlooks the ocean as well, and offers a comprehensive list of services, from the passive (massage, hydrotherapy, facials) to the somewhat active (yoga or tai chi, with a view). The facility itself is expansive, 20,000 square feet, both indoors and out. Outdoor activities on offer include swimming in no fewer than three pools, and a variety of salt-water sports, such as kayaking, snorkeling, and even surfing. Kids can be consigned to the PaintBox, the resort’s children’s club, and the less fitness-minded adults can sit in on art classes of their own, or take a stroll through the gallery or down to the beach.

How to get there:

Montage Resort & Spa is located on 30 acres of land in the heart of Laguna Beach. The hotel is approximately a one-hour drive from both Los Angeles and San Diego, and 30 minutes from Orange County’s John Wayne International Airport.
