Very good golf hotel. Close to the beach . Great room. Awesome vibe.

Situated in the Aliso and Wood Canyons, The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a luxury hotel and spa in the heart of Orange County. Set on an iconic piece of land where canyon and sea meet, the boutique property blends the history of the canyon with the culture of Laguna Beach for a distinctively local resort.

Scattered amidst an 87-acre park-like setting, the hotel's rooms, suites, cottages, and The Treehouse mix casual elegance with 360-degree views. Set a short walk from one of Southern California's top beaches, rooms provide a blend of indoor and outdoor living spaces, Tuvalu-designed coastal ranch furnishings, Signature Ranch bedding and Italian linens, and oversized walk-in showers. Plus, state-of-the-art technology including 49-inch LCD TVs, universal charging stations, and in-room coffee machines.

Marrying the creativity of Laguna Beach with the seasonal flavors of Orange County, Harvest Restaurant pays homage to the original homesteaders, as well as California's history of organic farming, brewing, and oenology with a seasonally changing menu and innovative cocktail collection. The Lost Pier Cafe serves California cuisine in a barefoot beachfront cafe with Pacific views, and Ben's Pantry has a rustic setting for artisan sandwiches, pastries, and upscale grab-and-go options.

The Sycamore Spa by Hudson is premier boutique spa providing customized facials, massages, wraps, scrubs, and a co-ed Infrared sauna.

For recreation, the property's land pursuits include mountain biking, sand volleyball, guided hikes, bird-watching, and stargazing. While water recreation options include stand-up paddleboarding, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, and dolphin safaris. The Ranch LB has an array of activities for all ages, the Family Tee golf program has a laidback atmosphere, and the Junior Explorers kid's program has themed exploration and educational programs. For adults, there are cooking and gardening classes, as well as wellness programs and sports.
