Monarch Beach Resort
Dana Point, CA
Located in beautiful Dana Point, CA, the Monarch Beach Resort was in urgent need of a refresh and upgrade. The luxury renovation began with a complete demolition of the main entrance and lobby lounge, transforming the entire space into a beach-themed reception entrance.
In parallel to the lobby’s transformation, a new Fitness Center and Miraval Spa were added. The new space included over 25 treatment rooms, two yoga studios and a dry bar.
The cafe was gutted and transformed into a new guest marketplace (Part & Parcel). A floor below the lobby, guests are now able to dine in an openly modern and newly constructed restaurant (Aveo Table + Bar) which replaced the existing dining room. The expanded main dining space nearly doubled its functionality with the addition of a sliding glass door that opens onto a balcony extension overhanging the Grand Lawn.
The resort’s main pool area was brought down to grade and rebuilt from the ground up. The new facilities feature four family cabanas with a beach entry family pool, six adult cabanas surrounding a newly shaped main pool, two infinity-edge Jacuzzis, a towel room and bathroom facilities, and a full service pool side bar and grill.
