Rather than being a standard hotel with guestrooms and suites all packed under one roof, The Retreat in Laguna offers a choice of inspirational villas to choose from for your Southern California vacation. Eight stunning homes sit on Orange County’s beautiful coastline and provide the perfect retreat for everything from a family reunion to a romantic getaway.
Villas come in eight different shapes, sizes and themes, making them each unique and suited for any traveler. The Villa Roma penthouse is luxuriously warm with earth tones and a handcrafted stone fireplace. Beautiful ocean views are the focal point. Villa Bella Mare conjures up images of Tuscany with an open kitchen and dark mahogany cabinetry.
Villa Teatro is located directly above the Villa Rustico and the two can be combined for groups. It includes a rooftop patio, perfect for enjoying the stunning Laguna Beach skyline. Palazzo Stella features a spacious deck with a private outdoor fire pit, and a kitchen with all modern amenities including stainless steel and marble countertops.
Adding to the exclusivity of each home is the option to book a private chef to cook a meal for you in the privacy of your villa, or order in a catered dinner. When you’re ready to switch it up and go out for a night on the town, Laguna Beach has a great variety of eateries and award-winning fine dining restaurants, many with beautiful ocean views. Around town, guests of the hotel can also receive specials and complimentary items at different establishments, a perk that is limited to guests of The Retreat.
Just because there isn’t a spa facility on property, doesn’t mean that you can’t be pampered. The Retreat will send a spa therapist right to your villa or you can spend a day being refreshed with a full spa experience at The Hudson Salon and Spa located nearby. And don’t worry about packing your beauty products, because villas are stocked with L’Occitane luxury bath amenities as well as other treats like gift baskets filled with freebies, snacks and other seasonal goodies.
If there is anything else you need, concierge service is available. Otherwise, just relax next to your villa’s fireplace or fire pit at the Palazzo D’Stella and soak in the warm California sun. It is also possible to book the full property, making The Retreat in Laguna the ideal place for events, weddings and corporate groups.
