Newport Coast Travel Guide
“Just in case you were worried that the extreme luxe lifestyle was dying off, you can stop fretting,” assures the NYT in its weekly “Check In, Check Out” column. Well, phew. Turns out all we need to do is head to The Resort at Pelican Hill, last fall’s addition to the Pacific coast south of L.A. And just as we've suspected all along, the place sounds like the sort of luxe bedpost hotel writers like us drool over.
Think colonnaded cabanas, 750 olive trees, Pacific views, and 950-square-foot bungalows at Newport Coast. Yes, please! Enjoy with us a few highlights from the NYT’s review.
While Newport Beach isn't exactly lacking on the hotel side of things, we're kind of excited about the opening of The Resort at Pelican Hill.
The resort is stuffed with jaw-dropping features. The sorts of things that seem just a little too extravagant during a recession, and yet we can't help but drool and yearn. Just keep the folks from AIG away from this place and it should be A-Ok.
