Explore the infinite wonders that surround The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. Laguna is Southern California's premier seaside artist haven - with quaint cottages, subtropical gardens and sandy coves, stretching along a seven-mile scenic coastline.

Hotel Overview

The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel premiered as the first luxury beach resort along coastal Orange County. Today, the Dana Point resort boasts a newly re-imagined vibe, services and spaces, yet still occupies its perch atop 150 foot bluff featuring cascading views of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is the premiere destination for travelers who desire a playful approach to Southern California luxury. Located half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, the surfside retreat awakens guests' senses with its unique beach ocean-front setting and remarkable service heritage. Over the years, the resort has been the recipient of many awards, but is proud to boast its AAA Five Diamond status for the 28th consecutive year.
