The Surf & Sand Resort
EDITOR’S INDEPENDENT REVIEW: The Surf & Sand Resort is a luxury, true beachfront resort placed on the 500 feet long stretch of California’s scenic Laguna Beach. It is located nearly 54 miles from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and 15 miles from John Wayne Airport. The property has been designed to resemble a Mediterranean village. It has meeting and event space for occasions like corporate retreats and wedding ceremonies.

An on-site spa has eight treatment rooms, an ocean-view couples’ room, a nail salon, an indoor eucalyptus steam room, outdoor Jacuzzi, showers, locker rooms and a relaxation area with a fireplace, refreshments, and indoor/outdoor seating. They offer result-driven treatments. Customized spa after-hour celebrations for bridal parties, birthday celebrations and other themed events can be organized. Private training lessons and fitness classes for groups can be arranged. The resort offers live music on weekends during the summer months. Free rides are available from the resort to the best attractions throughout Laguna Beach during the daytime on weekends. Area activities include surfing, paddle boarding and visiting boutiques, galleries and art festivals.

The resort’s pet policy allows pets under 25 lbs. Accommodations include 167 beachfront rooms including 13 suites and three penthouses. Each unit comes with a stocked minibar, microwave oven and luxurious bath amenities. In-room safe and ironing board are available upon request. Free Wi-Fi or wired internet access is available in all rooms. The smaller accommodations measure between 37 sqm and 42 sqm. Most come with a choice of a king-size bed or queen beds. Larger 46 sqm rooms have a separate bathtub and shower. Premium rooms measure 51 sqm and include a king bed, small seating area with sofa bed, cordless phone, oceanfront balcony and sea views from the bathtub. Nearly all rooms overlook the Pacific Ocean and occasionally it is possible to spot passing whales using binoculars from the balcony.

The resort’s restaurant serves flavors from Southern California driven by local ingredients. They have specialized menus for all meals and weekend brunches. Seating is available indoors and on a palm-shaded patio. The sea is 25 feet below the restaurant and one can see the rolling waves while dining. There is an adjoining casual bar. Another venue is an outdoor lounge with fire pits that can accommodate groups of up to 40 people in a casual setting. The resort has a café that offers a quick breakfast, lunch on-the-go, salads, take away sandwiches and Wi-Fi. Room service is available between 06:30 and 22:00 on most days.
