Luxury Flagship Resort Showcases Stunning Pacific Ocean Views
LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. - Celebrating its 15th year anniversary, Montage Laguna Beach unveils a newly refreshed Lobby Lounge with a breezy new palette, fresh modern furnishings and a new menu with gourmet teas and coffees and light breakfast offerings and desserts.
As the resort's centerpiece, the Lobby Lounge sets the stage for the iconic Montage experience, evoking a "wow" factor when guests enter and take in the stunning Pacific Ocean panoramas. Expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and indoor and outdoor seating allow guests to unwind and soak in the true California beach experience.
"We're thrilled to unveil our new look in the Lobby Lounge, which has always been a lively gathering spot for our hotel guests and the community," says Anne-Marie Houston, resort manager for the 250-room oceanfront property. "We look forward to introducing this refreshed space and its updated food and beverage offerings to our new and return visitors."
Following an extensive renovation, the new Lobby Lounge captures the California beach lifestyle with a sun splashed transitional style, accentuated by California plein air artwork and plush new furnishings. Enhancements include fresh paint in muted beige colors; refinished wood floors throughout the entrance and Lobby Lounge; refurbished lobby bathrooms; a refreshed grand staircase complete with a new contemporary chandelier as well as modern seating and lounge tables. Artful-style lighting fixtures, textured rugs and soft beige leather accents all infuse understated elegance.
The Lobby Lounge now serves breakfast choices, such as fresh pastries and homemade granola, accompanied by coffee and tea service starting at 6:30 a.m. There's a new Modbar espresso system, which uses Vittoria Coffee. And, Grand Cru Valrhona is highlighted in three unique chocolate beverages. Desserts, served daily until 10 p.m., include crème brûlée, matcha tiramisu and a Viennese-style chocolate cake.
Beginning Sunday, April 8, a new social hour takes place Sunday through Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m., offering 25% off the Lobby Lounge menu.
