Boasting miles of beautiful coastline, a rich cultural scene and that original, cool-California vibe, Laguna Beach can’t be beat. You should anticipate an increase in attendance if you plan your next conference, company award ceremony or brainstorming session at one of Laguna’s meeting venues, because there’s no doubt delegates will clear their calendar to experience this special Southern California destination.
As for the venues themselves, they’re as unique and spectacular as the variety of organizations and associations they welcome each year. You can find every kind of event space imaginable, fully equipped with the latest technology, state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment, master chefs to craft a perfect menu for the occasion and a community of planning specialists to ensure your event is the highlight of each attendee’s year.
Located in the heart of it all sits Montage Laguna Beach. This spacious five-diamond resort and meeting venue offers groups seaside character with an unapologetic dash of executive luxury. Majestic is a bold word, but it’s exemplified here. Montage’s sprawling indoor and outdoor meeting spaces cater to larger gatherings, while specially designed suites and boardrooms provide smaller meetings with a more intimate setting. There are three oceanfront event lawns, three signature restaurants and a spa where you can unwind after it’s all said and done.
For a more intimate oceanfront setting, The Inn at Laguna Beach is ideal for executive-style meetings for groups of 40 to 75 guests. It offers an elegant yet boutique-like atmosphere with some of the most breathtaking views on the coast. In fact, it is one of the only hotels in Laguna Beach that offers a meeting room with a full ocean view and connecting rooftop terrace to take it all in. Guests are treated to a property that offers them a sense of freedom, which spurs relaxed conversations that lead to real results.
If you want to be near the Pacific Ocean, the Surf & Sand Resort is as close as you can get without worrying about high tide. The venue is a true West Coast destination, offering your attendees a myriad of ways to engage, both on the clock and after hours—fitness on the beach, mixology classes, kayaking, scuba diving, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkeling, dolphin safaris, golf, hiking, biking, poolside yoga, meditation, birdwatching, stargazing…there is something for everyone.
Along with all of the networking possibilities, this venue offers unique indoor and outdoor meeting and event space and includes a stand-alone conference center with an oceanfront terrace, several boardrooms and spacious ballrooms. Nearby tide pools inspired the names of Surf & Sand’s meeting rooms; with names like Sand Dollar, Starfish, Seahorse and Sand Castle, attendees are almost encouraged to head out onto the beach to feel the sand under their feet in between meetings. When the day is done, guests can unwind with a nightcap at the resort’s Splashes Bar and watch the sunset paint itself across the Pacific Ocean.
This place brings out the best in people, so don’t be surprised to see attendees connecting, participating and innovating like never before.
