Terranea Resort

Summary of 1,500 verified reviews


Excellent club hotel. Good for sightseeing with nearby parking areas. Awesome vibe. Great pool. Great room.

The establishment of one of the finest oceanfront resorts ever created on the California coast is, in the case of Terranea. Discover a land not far away, combining great vision, great skill, and great fortune. The Lowe Destination Development team, in conjunction with Destination Hotels & Resorts, has encountered an environment ideal for the enriching, restorative experience envisioned for Terranea.

The crystalline ocean waters of the Pacific. The idyllic Southern California coastal microclimate. Stunning 270° of wraparound views of the California coast.

At Terranea Resort, you’ll see, feel and experience things differently than you do at home. However, the most civilized pleasures are within immediate reach. Every element at Terranea is an extension of its setting. Embracing the rich Mediterranean architectural heritage of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Terranea possesses the feel of a carefully tended coastal estate that has been set apart by nature. A gracious, old-world ambiance permeates the grounds, from the hotel lobby and outdoor gardens, to private terraces and inviting courtyards with outdoor fireplaces.

At the same time, places such as the Point Bar express a vibrant and open style. All of the luxuries and amenities at Terranea have been carefully conceived to reflect what is expected of an internationally renowned resort. But most importantly, all of this; the stunning natural environment, the authentic world-class management and facilities, award-wining restaurants, the design of the buildings and grounds, aims to inspire and renew those who experience Terranea.
