Laguna Beach cool has a new home at The Ranch at Laguna Beach. Secluded within a peaceful blend of canyon and sea, our authentic sanctuary invites guests to get caught up in the world of a Laguna local that’s off the beaten path in every sense. Leave the pretention and rules of other resorts behind and step into the warm embrace of a place where everyone is family.
Grafted into the Laguna culture and notched into the perfect convergence of land and sea, a stay at The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a microcosm of the best of Laguna in one organic, refined place. Our staff offers an insider’s take on hidden surf spots, shops and specialty galleries. Laid-back luxury speaks to the Laguna mindset. Nonstop programs, such as our barefoot Friday golf with three clubs, and monthly art gallery tours, all capture the vibe of our unique locale.
Loosely scattered about the park-like grounds with the incomparable setting of Mother Nature’s own magnum opus, our spacious rooms, studio suites, one bedroom suites, and cottages enjoy a seamless dance between casual elegance and the breathtaking 360-degree vistas. Our pristine 87-acre canyon oasis is just a short walk from one of Southern California’s finest beaches, bringing the best of coast and canyon together in one uniquely Laguna experience.
Come savor the many flavors of a comfortable culinary experience that expands your appreciation of bespoke comfort food, drink and hospitality. HARVEST (opening late Spring) marries the bounty of the season with the atmosphere and creativity of Laguna Beach, inspired by the local flavors, ingredients and traditions of American and California Cuisine.
The restaurant, bar and private dining room pull from the incredible revival of California’s organic farming, ranching, brewing, distilling and oenology. The Harvest venue features outdoor patio seating with incredible golf and canyon views. As homage to the original homesteaders, handcrafted food and drink will be a focus throughout your dining experience. House-smoked hams, bacon and salmon, homemade bitters and grenadine for cocktails. Absolutely everything that we can grow or make on property will be.
Our menu will change with the seasons, as will the techniques used in the cooking and aging of provisions. Grapevines trimmed in the fall will be used to fire winter recipes. Fruit tree wood pruned in the spring will be used to smoke charcuterie for summer. Our barreled cocktails will be aged in preparation of holidays and special events and become anticipated features inviting tradition and history into the experience.
From plates you want to share with your friends to dishes that you’re happy to eat solo at the bar, the food is comforting and recognizable, but created with the foundation and craft of modern day. Channel the nostalgia for things you grew up on, done better than you have ever had and made from scratch.
Sycamore Spa (opening late Spring)
Enter this quiet bungalow respite and release into a canyon sanctuary from Southern California’s hectic pace. Personal health and wellbeing take center stage, nurtured by Laguna’s natural healing powers. With its small staff and tailored programs, this spa haven provides an Intimate experience customized to your goals and desires.
Sycamore Spa is a 3,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor spa that captures the bohemian lifestyle of Laguna’s laid-back beach life. That free spirit is showcased here with a dedication to connecting guests with earth, nature, sea and the sublime surroundings. The spa’s seamless spaces blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, welcoming natural sunlight and coastal breezes that connect you with Laguna’s powerful healing nature.
Indulge in inspired garden and sea therapies that rejuvenate inside and out. Release stress with a signature massage treatment that incorporates healing properties of the area’s indigenous plants and marine elements. Enjoy the serenity of our four treatment rooms, including a Couples Suite for a romantic rendezvous for two, or retreat to our relaxation room and outdoor courtyard.
We offer an array of activities for every age and interest. Share a love of golf with our unique “Family Tee” program, featuring shortened tees to encourage junior golfers to play. Keep children and grandchildren entertained with our interpretive Junior Rangers kid’s program. Instead of a video game room, our themed program is chock-full of fun, adventure, exploration and education. Ranger activities include an array of opportunities for families to connect or children to make friends and explore nature. Choose guided programs and curriculum focused on marine life, sustainability and appreciating all of nature’s wonder. Bring the whole family for our “Deer Talk,” a great storytelling event at sundown—the magic hour when some of our favorite neighbors, the deer, appear.
Lose the electronics and all the “stuff” that just gets in the way. Come to The Ranch at Laguna Beach to kick back, unplug and make memories with the ones you love most. There’s no better place to just connect in the raw beauty of family time.
