This imaginatively conceived resort hotel is set amid 30 landscaped acres on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Most of the 253 guest rooms (58 suites) feature seaview balconies, custom appointments evoking California’s Arts and Crafts movement, and lavish marble baths with oversize tubs and separate showers. An eclectic range of paintings adorns the inviting five-story main building, which houses several spacious lounges and a casual dining room. Other food and drink options include the panoramic gourmet Studio for California-influenced modern French cuisine, Mosaic Bar and Grille for poolside dining, and pastries and afternoon tea (Saturdays and Sundays only) in the lobby area. An oceanside promenade leads down to the beach, and other amenities encompass an outdoor infinity-edge mosaic pool with cabanas and an expansive 20,000-square-foot spa with a fitness center and a lap pool. Tennis, golf, fishing, bike tours, sailing and whale watching are located nearby as well.
