A laid-back luxury hotel tucked up against a couple of canyons just south of Laguna Beach, this place has the feel of a mountain resort, even though the Pacific Ocean is only 350 yards away.

Rooms – spread throughout the 87 acres – are decorated in coastal-ranch style (lots of natural light and soft tones), with Tuvalu-designed furnishings that give off an air of breezy elegance. The Treehouse – complete with a private gazebo – is perfect for families and comes with a fully stocked kitchen.

The setting is California casual – think firepits where you can enjoy a glass of local wine, or splash about in the outdoor saltwater pool, which is heated to a constant 26 degrees. And if that’s too cold, there’s always the hot tub. The resort’s much-loved nine-hole course wends its way through the canyon, making for a scenic golfing experience.
