At a Glance
From the editors of Elite MeetingsWaldorf Astoria Monarch Beach crowns a beachside bluff halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. A laid-back, Southern California vibe permeates the 172-acre oceanfront property, which serves as an ideal home base for quintessential Dana Point experiences such as surfing, whale watching, and driving along the Pacific Coast Highway.
Groups convene in 30,000 square feet of newly refreshed indoor meeting spaces, including two magnificent ballrooms and the intimate Wine Cave at Bourbon Steak restaurant. Ocean-view outdoor venues offer spectacular, one-of-a-kind options as well, from the 12,600-square-foot Grand Lawn to the Mediterranean-inspired Miraval Garden.
To get even closer to the waves, guests can head to the newly renovated Monarch Bay Beach Club, where they’ll find lounge chairs and activities such as stand-up paddleboarding, falconry demonstrations, and “no-fail” surf lessons. There’s also an an indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant, one of the resort’s seven dining options. Meanwhile, golfers hit the links-style course by Robert Trent Jones Jr.; tennis players face off on eight lighted courts; and tranquility seekers visit California’s first Miraval Life in Balance Spa. Additional recreational options include three pools, the Athletic Club, fishing excursions, and exploring nearby Laguna Beach.
After a long day of business or leisure, guests retire to oversized rooms and suites worthy of the AAA Five Diamond Award, with custom furnishings, deep soaking tubs, plush bedding, and private balconies.
