About The Resort at Pelican Hill, Newport Beach

Italian in inspiration, this 5-star Newport Coast resort is perched high on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Crystal Cove Beach, just a mile away, boasts 3 miles of sandy shoreline. The upscale Fashion Island shopping center is 3 miles from the resort. And John Wayne (Orange County) Airport is a mere 15-minute drive.

The Resort at Pelican Hill is home to two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio. Most of the holes provide spectacular views of the ocean surf. You can perfect your swing at the top-notch golf academy. Or take a refreshing dip in the large, perfectly circular Coliseum Pool, lined with more than a million glass tiles. The ocean-view sundeck offers chaises longues and private cabanas. The award-winning Spa at Pelican Hill features 22 treatment rooms, a full salon, and the Acqua Colonnade with a sauna, spa tub, and herbal steam room. When it's time to dine, you'll have 5 distinctive options: the acclaimed Andrea Ristorante for Northern Italian cuisine, the poolside Coliseum Pool & Grill, the Pelican Grill for coastal California flavors, and two Italian-style cafés for specialty coffee drinks and light fare. Room service is available 24 hours a day.

Your spacious, smoke-free bungalow opens to a furnished terrace facing the ocean or gardens. Inside, you'll find a gas-lit Italian limestone fireplace, soaring wood-beam vaulted ceilings, a comfortable sitting area, and a large flat-screen TV with a DVD player. Beds are layered with Italian luxury linens. Plan the next day's adventures via complimentary wireless Internet access, or relax to music from the Bose stereo system. The granite wet bar comes with a compact refrigerator for your convenience. A coffeemaker is provided, too (surcharge for coffee). The bathroom features a deep soaking tub, separate marble shower, twin sinks, and plush bathrobes.
