Newport Coast, CA
Perched on the coastline between Newport and Laguna Beaches, with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, The Resort at Pelican Hill is an extraordinary destination on some of the most exquisite real estate in Southern California. With architecture inspired by the work of renowned Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, an Italian theme runs throughout the resort. Those wanting to experience the resort’s surrounds may indulge in some world-class shopping at Fashion Island, Crystal Cove Promenade and Corona del Mar Plaza. Ocean and beach activities include surfing, boating, sunbathing, fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving and whale watching, while culture vultures will be most content to browse the art galleries of Laguna Beach. Close to all the attractions that Southern California has to offer, this is one resort experience you must add to your life list.
