The St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort Hotel Review

: Designed to be luxurious in every imaginable way, this $240-million-dollar mega-resort, which commands a 172-acre slab of valuable oceanfront Dana Point property, showers its guests with a bounty of exclusive treats. The tennis club features eight pristine courts and a dedicated tennis pro. The 30,000-square-foot Spa Gaucin boasts two-dozen state-of-the-art treatment rooms, a yoga studio and customized treatments. The see-and-be-seen pool offers classy privacy with individual cabanas and stunning ocean views. In addition, an in-house butler service will help you with your every need. Bottom line: what we’re saying is that nothing here is second rate. The 400 guest rooms are furnished with Sony flat-screen televisions, custom-designed furniture that reinterprets modern styles, 300-thread-count sheets and oceanic vistas, while the suites seem to offer more square footage than most Beverly Hills mansions. Dining here effortlessly follows the pattern of pampering the senses, as Michael Mina's Stonehill Tavern offers a Modern American menu that focuses on seasonality and a deep, versatile wine list. Just below the property, the famous surfing beach of Salt Creek offers guests their own little SoCal playground. There is also a breathtaking championship golf course.
