With 400 superbly outfitted accommodations, three swimming pools, a full-service spa, stone fountains, palm trees, oodles of sunshine, gourmet dining (we’re talking chef Michael Mina here folks), and beach life galore, the resort has it all – and you are just 30 minutes from Disneyland.
Southern Cali’s Best
The Monarch’s guest rooms and suites are decked out with every amenity including things like private balconies and patios, complimentary WiFi, charging ports, headboard reading lamps, top-quality linens, oversized soaking tubs, premium bath products, flat-screen TV’s, fireplaces, and dining areas.
The resort features several incredible restaurants creating unique dishes that highlight the Southern California coastline. Ranked as the top restaurant in Orange County, Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak Orange County is a must featuring things like lobster & coconut bisque, Maine lobster pot pie, filet mignon, Wagyu striploin, Honjake salmon, and broiled tai snapper. Other dining options include AVEO Table + Bar, 33°North, Monarch Bay Club, and Sombra.
Southern California Golf with a Splash of Scotland
The par-70, 6,645-yard Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed Monarch Beach Golf Links sits along breath-taking Southern California bluffs and offers a distinctly Scottish links flavor. With dramatic ocean views all over, tight demanding fairways, meticulously cared for greens, and nearly 100 bunkers filled with crushed Augusta white marble, the experience will be one you won’t soon forget.
The resort offers the Gold Medal Unlimited Golf Package which features luxury guest room accommodations, unlimited golf per person, rental clubs, and overnight valet parking.
