Laguna Riviera Beach Resort Undergoes Facelift and Beachfront Upgrade

Published: 04/25/2012

Laguna Riviera Beach Resort is one of the longest established hotel/resorts on California's South Coast. The beach front resort has remained in the hands of one family since it's inception in 1948 and offers guests a choice of over 40 rooms and a 1,500 square foot classic 1930's beach bungalow. Laguna Riviera remains the family friendly resort that the founders envisioned more than 60 years ago--part French Riviera and part Mediterranean retreat.

In early 2005 a record setting storm caused severe erosion at properties throughout Laguna Beach. Many beach front and hillside properties were beset with soil liquefaction and Laguna Riviera watched a 100-foot section of a beach facing slope flow down the hill as a result of five days of torrential rains. After an arduous process of planning, designing and safety approvals, the resort's beach front slope reconstruction is underway and promises to transform this Laguna Beach resort before the start of the 2012 summer season. New pathways to the beach for guests and the opening of sun drenched terraced patios with direct beach access of the Beach Bungalow will result in an additional space for family gatherings, small weddings or company parties.

Over the the last two years, Laguna Riviera has completed a facelift of the guest rooms. The new room style reflects the attitude of the resort owners and preserves the iconic beach feel of the property. According to General Manager Kort Pearson " The look is beach casual, but not too casual. We were going for an understated comfortable Zen feel. We want guests to walk in to a room, exhale, relax and know their Laguna Beach vacation has started." The resort has a variety of rooms from ocean front studios to large one bedroom suites--some with large ocean facing decks and full kitchens. All rooms offer complimentary WiFi, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, color TV, HBO, phone, voice mail and hair dryer, and they even throw in free parking and daily continental breakfast.

Laguna Riviera Beach Resort is located within easy walking distance of the heart of Laguna Beach and is surrounded by a multitude of shops, including several world-class restaurants, art galleries and many shopping opportunities. With breathtaking sunset views, guests can even choose to grill their own meal in the resort's private inner courtyard overlooking the ocean. Original paintings and murals adorn the walls of much of the property exemplifying the inspired nature of the artist community for which the city is renowned. A unique, heated salt water pool, Finlandia sauna and bubbling salt water hot tub round out the host of amenities for guests. The resort is open year-round.
