The Resort at Pelican Hill Hotel Review

: Located on 504 acres of pristine land between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach, The Resort at Pelican Hill is uniquely designed with Palladian-style architecture inspired by the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. Indeed, the massive property is enough of a visual feast to keep guests thoroughly captivated no matter the length of their stay. The luxury accommodations are in the form of 204 bungalows and 128 villas, making the property feel like two hotels in one. Bungalow suites are stacked on a hill so that each room has a clear view of the ocean or the lush gardens. The villas, set behind a separate entrance, boast their own butlers, garages and shared pool and clubhouse. For recreation and relaxation, the property boasts two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses and a luxurious spa with 22 treatment rooms and its own line of products. A breathtaking infinity pool is surrounded by cabanas. Multiple dining options are offered, including signature restaurant Andrea, which serves Northern Italian cuisine and provides al fresco seating, perfect for catching a romantic sunset over the ocean.
