It’s the image that most around the world have when they think of California: a voluptuously wide beach with Baywatch style lifeguards patrolling the waves. Laguna Beach is the ultimate beach getaway, halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, but it’s also a longtime artists’ colony. That art milieu gave rise to the name of the town’s primary beachfront resort Montage Laguna Beach which is marking its 20th anniversary this year and to celebrate, offering a myriad of special inducements for guests at this 30 acre property and the other Montage Hotels & Resorts.
“20 years ago, our Founder, CEO and Chairman Alan J. Fuerstman set out to create a luxury hospitality experience-one that embodied a true sense of spirit and place through recreational pursuits, spa and wellness offerings, remarkable culinary offerings, a genuine welcoming spirit and a high level of service,” explains Managing Director and Area General Manager Mary Rogers. “We are grateful to the local community and our guests, many of whom have been visiting us since we opened our doors in 2003.”
It’s readily apparent that locals use the Arts and Crafts Movement inspired Lobby Lounge as a regular hangout for cocktails and afternoon tea, accompanied by live music and cliffside views over the Pacific. Hotel guests are also being encouraged to return by an offer of a five night getaway in the 2,800 square foot, two bedroom Catalina Suite with a $1,000 food and beverage credit, $1,500 Spa Montage credit, airport transfers, a whale watching expedition, a private docent-led tour of the town’s art galleries and the 20th Anniversary Gift Collection to take home including a bottle of the limited edition Clase Azul Ultra and Montage XX Anniversary Tequila, a custom designed Jonathan Simkhai Montage resort collection scarf and Jimmy Choo Limited Edition Laguna Beach tote. Also available here and all Montage Hotels & Resorts properties: the Montage Twenty Offer which gives guests who reserve two or more nights a $200 per night resort credit and a complimentary view upgrade based on availability.
