It’s no secret that Waldorf Astoria is a legendary hotel brand beloved by affluent audiences across the globe. These masters of hospitality are known for their beautifully appointed residences, curated cultural experiences, and exceptional service in iconic destinations. And now, the legend is moving into a new neighborhood: Orange County.

After a multi-million dollar renaissance, the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club opens in Dana Point for guests to revel in coastal charm. From sophisticated outdoor living and a striking green to an exclusive beach club, here are 5 reasons to start planning your visit to the new Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach.

A Spectacular Setting

Quintessential al fresco living is at the heart of Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach’s 400 renovated guest rooms. Each accommodation provides a front-row seat to sea and sand vistas from individually appointed private terraces. Coastal influences seamlessly flow inside via custom furnishings, a palette of cool blue hues and warm neutrals as well as a curated art collection showcasing the Spanish-Colonial influences and nautical history of Southern California.


The Fireside Terrace guest rooms further embrace the natural beauty of Dana Point’s spectacular setting. Unwind at sunset on the private patio complete with a cozy fire pit to roast s’mores before tucking into plush Frette linens for slumber.

Seaside Bluff


Exclusive to overnight resort guests and Waldorf Astoria members is the private Monarch Bay Beach Club. Surf, paddleboard, or snorkel with expert instruction; all the equipment you need for adventures out on the water is readily available. Just steps from the sand, an indoor/outdoor restaurant serves up coastal cuisine and handcrafted cocktails should you wish to remain seaside throughout the day.

Fresh Fare


Extensive on-property dining destinations allow you to choose where to eat pending on your mood. A hallmark of fine dining, Bourbon Steak Orange County is known as one of the region’s top restaurants for its dry-aged steaks and inventive seafood dishes with a robust whiskey selection to pair.

For a more convivial setting, savor Latin American dishes with a modern twist at AVEO Table + Bar or a California wine at sunset in the “living room” of 33°North (both boast expansive outdoor terraces.)

Love of the Links


If hitting the green is a must on your travel itinerary, head to Waldorf Astoria’s coveted 18-hole course which was voted by Golf Digest as one of the “Best Places to Play.” Modeled in the traditional Scottish links style, this is one of only a few oceanfront golf courses in California. Get ready for an enjoyable yet competitive tee time while overlooking panoramic views of the Pacific.

Tranquil Oasis


A refined haven for relaxation, the Waldorf Astoria Spa features a mindfully designed menu of body, massage, and facial treatments developed in partnership with luxury skincare brand 111SKIN as well as a full salon for the utmost pampering. And if you’re ready for an added dose of wellness, there are over 40+ weekly classes to attend from boot camps to meditation and candlelight yoga.
