The Elegance of Italy Under the Sun of Southern California!

Transport yourself to the Northern Italian countryside with a stay at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, one of Southern California’s most luxurious and inviting getaways. Inspired by the designs of 16th-century Italian architect Andrea Palladio, this oceanside palace isn’t short on handmade terracotta, groves of olive trees, and rows of 45-foot canary palms. But, if the resort’s timeless European-like setting doesn't sweep you away, its extravagant accommodations and amenities sure will. The posh Bungalow suites offer stunning 15’ wood-beamed ceilings, fireplaces, and ocean views, while the even posher Villas serve up full-gourmet kitchens, marble walk-in showers, and butler services to take care of your every need. Mix in 36 holes of onsite coastal golf, a state-of-the-art spa and salon, relaxing poolside cabanas, and the authentic Italian flavors of the Andrea restaurant, and you have a unique West Coast meets Mediterranean experience like no other!

Nearby Crystal Cove Beach - sporting more than three miles of coastline - is the perfect spot for swimming, diving, and surfing! And, make sure to take advantage of the resort's coach service to the beach; its fun-filled beach bag of towels, sunscreen, and beach toys; delicious boxed lunches; and even attendants to provide full-service chair and umbrella set up!
As luxurious as the resort may be, the entire family is still more than welcome! In fact, at the resort's Camp Pelican, the kids will have a blast! They'll enjoy a kid-friendly clubhouse filled with video games, a karaoke machine, computers, and microscopes, not to mention a multitude of art supplies, board games, and books. Plus, the children's pool with umbrellas, chaise lounges, and bubble-jet fountains is the perfect place to cool off!
Exterior view of The Resort at Pelican Hill. Golfing at Pelican Hill is the best, par none! Tom Fazio designed the resort's Ocean North and Ocean South courses and the nearby Oak Creek Golf Club, totaling 54 holes of oceanside fun! And, with facilities and amenities including professional forecaddies, locker rooms, a practice facility, shoe attendants, a club-cleaning service, a golf shop, and a golf academy, Pelican Hill is the ultimate spot to spend a day - or two- on the links!
The 50,000 acres that make up the nearby Irvine Ranch Natural Reserve are ideal for guided hikes, interpretive walks, horseback riding, biking excursions, and soaking up the beauty of your natural Southern California surroundings!
If you're looking for the right place for a romantic dinner for two, dining at any one of the resort's onsite restaurants, featuring fabulous food and fabulous views, is the perfect choice. The Coliseum Pool & Grill and the Pelican Grill both offer a more casual atmosphere, but still upscale nonetheless, while the Italian-inspired Andrea restaurant boasts the regional cuisine of Northern Italy, a sophisticated wine list, and an exquisite bar and private dining room overlooking the Pacific Ocean!
Have a taste for luxury? Pelican Hill has plenty of flavors, and its one- to three-bedroom villas are some of its most delicious. These private enclaves offer everything from butler services and villa coordinators that handle all of your arrangements to world-class amenities like terraces with ocean views, gourmet kitchens with Sub-Zero refrigerators, granite countertops, soaking tubs, European-style linens, Bose audio systems, 42" flat-screen TVs, and private car garages!
Offering 22 treatment rooms, a women's and men's Acqua Colonnade, relaxation lounges, a fitness center, wellness classes, personal training, a salon, day packages, three pools, retreats, and delicious spa cuisine, the spa at Pelican Hill is Southern California's ultimate experience in relaxation and rejuvenation!
