Why we choose The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel

Laidback, playful approach to the serious business of enjoying yourself

  • The best access to exceptional surfing
  • Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout showcase their stunning ocean views
  • Outstanding service with a relaxed, gracious delivery

The big draw of this resort is its location, and the rooms make the most of those sand and surf vistas. We recommend you opt for a direct ocean view guestroom, where you can open your doors and hear the waves crashing and watch surfers glide over the water.

Further indulge yourself by arranging for a personal butler to attend to your every need. Oh, Jeeves…

What you need to know about the hotel

Load up the ’Woody’ and wax down your surf board. We’re headed for the beach!

  • Soft sand and sea colors decorate these perfect Oceanview rooms
  • Two pools, two whirlpools, two tennis courts - but just one incredible beach
  • 180blu is their oceanfront dining lounge perched above Salt Creek Beach

Ritz Carlton style and comfort makes this the place to hang by the beach in Southern California. Incredibly well equipped with everything you’re going to need to the perfect vacation.

They even have new fireside guestrooms each with a beautiful outside fireplace so that no matter how long you stayed in the surf during the day, you can gaze out at the ocean below and stars above all night long.

Where is it and what's nearby

This oceanfront resort in Dana Point is a haven for surfers and arts aficionados

  • The resort sits above Salt Creek, one of the most famous surfing spots in southern California
  • Nearby Mission San Juan Capistrano is an impressive historical landmark that celebrates the area’s multi-cultural history
  • Go on a sea hike along Strands Beach to discover plants and animals native to the southern California coast

It’s tough to get more picturesque than a resort perched on a bluff soaring 150 feet over the Pacific Ocean. Except, perhaps, if you add 54,000 square feet of lush gardens and oceanfront lawns. What’s more, the area is the Whale Capital of the West, and these giant beauties can be observed here year round.

If surfing and whale-watching isn’t your thing, maybe lying on a spotless beach or taking a dip in two delightful pools is more to your taste. Either way, it’s part of the resort staff’s mission to keep a drink in your hand and sunscreen on your back.

How to enjoy Laguna Beach

With its walkable, village size, quaint stores and discreet restaurants, Laguna Beach is perfect for anyone seeking a spot of romance

  • For sandy seclusion, head to 1,000 Steps Beach; the 230 steep steps work wonders at keeping the crowds away
  • Marvel at the beauty of Purple Sea Urchins or pale green Dead Man’s Fingers hidden below the surface of the coastline’s many tidepools
  • Find rare books, unique home furnishings and exquisite jewelry in the many independent boutique stores

MTV reality show, Laguna Beach, may have put this coastal village on the map for a certain demographic, but it is connoisseurs of art, fine dining and shopping who really understand this town’s charm. With more than 70 works of public art and over 100 art galleries and studios to browse with names as diverse as Matisse, Chuck Close and Picasso it is an art lovers dream.

The natural scenery is pretty awesome too. The rocky outcroppings that enclose the pristine white sand beaches harbor many impressive tidepools. There are also plenty of opportunities to go surfing, skimboarding, diving and snorkelling. Check out Reef Point for what local divers describe as a healthy reef with curious fish.
