Hotel Overview


Laguna Beach, in southern California’s Orange County.

Rooms at the Surf and Sun Resort

All the 167 rooms are set right on the beach and the 13 Laguna Beach suites have excellent Pacific Ocean views. Ocean shades of white and pale blue combine with sand-coloured pine to create a seaside vibe. Private balconies afford outstanding views and the cooling ocean breeze, whilst the penthouses (of which there are three) offer extra room with large terraces and spacious living rooms.

Food & Facilities

Splashes is an excellent beachside restaurant serving Mediterranean and Californian cuisine, and the bar is a great place to hang out with a drink as the sun goes down over the Pacific Ocean. There is also a bar and lounge, the open-air 15FiftyFive, offering light bites and fire pits, which are perfect for an ambient evening drink. Pacific Perk is ideal at the opposite end of the day, serving coffees, breakfast and quick snacks. Get your holiday massages at Aquaterra Spa and spend the day chilling out in one of the cabanas at the beachfront pool.

Activities at the Surf and Sun Resort

The beaches of the OC are famous for their waves, so surfers will be more than happy. If lounging around the pool and relaxing on your balcony gets old, you can head out to Laguna Beach, the state’s arts hub. Sailing, fishing, jet-skiing and – in season – whale watching are all available from the beach, which is right at the foot of the resort.
