Get into the Southern California lifestyle the minute you step foot on this grandiose resort at the heart of one of the USA’s best-loved beaches, in Newport Beach, California. Modern, inviting and spacious, the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach is everything you’d expect from a California mega-establishment, all set on 26 acres of pristinely landscaped grounds.
Set just back from Orange County’s most famous beach on Jamboree Road, Hyatt Regency is in good company, nestled between Newport Beach Country Club and the meandering coastline of Newport Harbour, and just a short amble over the bridge to Balboa Island. Surrounded by plush palm trees, crisp white sand and the enticing Pacific Ocean, you’ll have to pinch yourself to remind yourself you’re not on a television set. Oh wait, you are…
Everything’s been thought of here, with just over 400 newly renovated, contemporary rooms to choose from, offering a variety of amenities from coffee-makers to iPod docks that you’ll realize you couldn’t do without, and views over the myriad of pools and bay. If your own balcony or patio doesn’t offer the seclusion you’re after, opt for one of the Villa Suites, where you’ll find a three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment nestled away in the hotel grounds. Needless to say the beds are everything you’d expect from Hyatt Regency – rest your head for instant relaxation and immediate bliss.
Why we love it
Home to a library with more coffee-table books than you could leaf through in a lifetime, it’s fortunate the weather’s good enough to entice you outside once in a while. Located next to the Black Bay, it’s the perfect place to set sail for a midday cruise and leisurely lunch at sea. Return, sun-soaked and ready for some holistic therapy at the hotel’s Spa by the Sea.
