On my last weekend in California, I discovered a major paradise.
I’ve heard a lot from friends in LA about the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel but I wanted to make my own experience and share it with my best friend Solène.
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean from atop a seaside bluff, the resort invites you to experience Laguna Beach fully. It was a first for me and I loved the Dana Point atmosphere!
We shared a beautiful garden view room which was perfect for my puppy Greengo to run like crazy, just in front of our terrace. Yes, the Ritz Carlton is so welcoming with pets and that was really important to me.
On the first day, we walked down to Dana Point beach and we even swam in the Pacific, having the best time.
The highlight of our stay was, for sure, the sunset, spent at 180 Blu, Overlooking the Pacific Ocean from 150 feet above with live music. A moment to remember…
Later on, we had dinner at Raya, still facing the Ocean and we had the most yummy black cod! You should definitely try it on the menu.
We had this typical American cliché just before sleeping : s’mores by our room campfire while listening to the OC music! Felt straight back to summer camp in West Virginia and loved it.
On the next morning, I started with a yoga wake up, facing the Pacific and, just after breakfast at Raya, Solène & I experienced the best experience so far… Michele the Concierge, booked us a private surfing class with Girl in the Curl. We met Mary for a 2 Hours class and we absolutely LOVED it. The temperature was perfect, the instructor so helpful & talented that we both stood up really quick! I MUST try again very soon.
Few words to tell you that I really enjoyed my experience at Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. Definitely one of the most beautiful Hotel in Cali. I miss it already…
