The Monarch Beach Resort is a Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond awarded resort and is located along the pristine, sandy shores of the Pacific Ocean in Dana Point, California. It has been voted as one of the "Top 25 Hotel Spas in the World" by Travel & Leisure Magazine. As one of the top resorts in the area, the Monarch Beach Resort features the award-winning Spa Gaucin, an exclusive private beach club, three swimming pools, on-site championship Monarch Beach Golf Links, six restaurants for both fine dining and casual as well as the Sandcastle Kids Club for younger patrons

The 25,000-square-foot Monarch Beach Resort, located in Dana Point, also offers a private beach club, an 18-hole championship golf course and three swimming pools. Patrons can rent a cabana alongside the pool that comes equipped with its own flat screen TV

From rooms that average 535 square feet to the 3,100-square-foot Monarch Suite, accommodations are so luxurious that you may not want to step out of your room. But when you do, a diverse array of dining options awaits you. Patrons can choose the intimate private beach club, said Christy Bonner, marketing and communications manager. Or you can travel to the beach for dining via a tram. There you will find a private beach club that offers scrumptious food and beverages right next to the waves. Even though the Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel, and Montage Laguna Beach are on the cliffs of the water, at Monarch Beach Resort you can sit on the beach and get that five-star service, Bonner said


  • The resort also offers a unique butler service, which extends beyond bringing a newspaper and coffee in the morning. Butlers will unpack guests' clothes and bring food to the room. Need a good read? A gift? No request is too big for this service. In fact, patrons interested in learning to surf can take a lesson from one of our butlers/surfing aficionados! Did you know? The most outrageous request made to a butler was to purchase a pair of gold lame leggings, which the butler and his team were able to provide.

  • Monarch Beach Resort also offers a 30,000-square-foot spa and fitness center. Between swimming laps or having facials, wraps, scrubs, saunas, massages and more, Spa Guacin offers custom spa treatments for those looking to pamper themselves or simply to kill their stress.
