Monarch Beach Resort
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Gorgeous and secluded, the hillside resort looks out over the Pacific Ocean
- There's something for everyone -- an 18-hole golf course, an award-winning spa and a private beach club
- Four restaurants, including Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina -- named the No. 1 restaurant in Orange County by the Orange County Register
Perched atop a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the AAA 5-Diamond Monarch Beach Resort covers 172 acres -- and it comes with gorgeous coastline views.
The location makes for a tranquil retreat and puts guests about a 10-minute drive or 15-minute walk from the sand. The intimate beach offers umbrella and towel service, kayak rentals and surf lessons, and oceanfront dining at the exclusive Monarch Bay Club. For other nearby excursions, the Dana Point Trolley departs from the hotel on Fridays-Saturdays during the summer, stopping at Strands Beach, Doheny State Park, Dana Point Harbor as well as other local attractions.
Lush and tropical, the grounds include an 18-hole golf course, three pools, tennis courts and an award-winning spa that dazzles guests with more than 70 treatments, a eucalyptus steam room, a sauna and a lounge space with organic café. The top choice for on-site dining, Bourbon Steak, comes from renowned chef Michael Mina and focuses on seasonal ingredients and a specialty whiskey selection. For variety, there are three other restaurants on-site including the farm-to-table AVEO Table + Bar, where the highlight of the menu is a selection of house cocktails made with resort-grown herbs and honey.
Rooms are spacious, with plenty of natural light, and each has a private walkout balcony and a deep soaking tub.
