Suite Renovations at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel

The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, a Ritz-Carlton flagship property and one of Southern California’s first coastal resorts, debuts a captivating new guestroom and suite renovation inspired by the ocean. Our jetsetters will be taken on a sensory experience with the iconic oceanfront resort’s new luxury room product, capturing the epic Pacific Ocean backdrop as inspiration for an enriching, illustrious reveal. Designed by luxury hotel interior designer Wimberly Interiors (The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, Lido House, The St. Regis Princeville Resort, JW Marriott Casablanca, Morocco), the renovation showcases an airy, coastal-inspired aesthetic with refined, state-of-the-art features, and complements the contemporary ocean-inspired redesign of the resort’s Club Level Lounge, also renovated by Wimberly Interiors.

Presented against an extraordinary backdrop, the re-imagined surfside retreat redefines the guest experience by creating distinctive and unforgettable moments that embrace its oceanfront setting – from sea-inspired spa treatments and locally sourced restaurant menus to ocean view accommodations, family-friendly eco-adventure excursions, and unique surfboard displays. The seaside property offers 396 guestrooms and suites with personal patios or balconies, along with six distinctive dining outlets, an intimate Ritz-Carlton Spa, a dedicated Eco-Adventure Center, and unrivaled activities that embrace the surroundings. The iconic resort emphasizes unparalleled Ritz-Carlton service while delivering a genuine experience with a playful approach to luxury.

“Paying homage to our beautiful locale along the Pacific Ocean, the crown jewel of Dana Point has been remastered and perfectly blends the elements of the sea and sand with stylish updates to continue providing our guests with an enhanced experience, unforgettable memories, and personalized, high-touch service that defines The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel,” says General Manager Karen Chastain.

While hearing relaxing sounds of lapping waves and healthy ocean air, the guestrooms and suites renovation brings the oceanfront setting indoors. Guests immediately are drawn to alluring hand-crafted and lighted glass art panels made in Europe that feature abstract images representative of coral and the ocean, with three layers of blue, grey and silver. Walls are bathed in crisp, light grey, and warm blue, cream-colored carpet features a modern, geometric design. A new floating entertainment center with sleek dark brown oak and an off-white lacquered ledge anchors the room with 55” Smart TVs (Netflix, Hulu, Bluetooth).

New furnishings include exquisite, custom-designed plush lounge and desk chairs and a full-length mirror by Renwil. Providing a sense of escape, many bathrooms now feature stunning glass-enclosed, walk-in showers with white Statuario marble with distinct grey veining and hints of gold and double head showers for the ultimate revitalization.

The resort’s suites offer the perfect residential living space with new contemporary coffee tables, along with a bespoke desk to integrate with the new entertainment center and 65” Smart TVs. For added serenity, the hotel’s three Ritz-Carlton Suites now feature elegant free-standing tubs for a deep soaking, spa-like experience. All of the resort’s guestrooms and suites include private patios and balconies overlooking the sparkling Pacific Ocean, coastline, lush gardens, or serene pools; and more than 50 offer personal fire pits for a perfect ending to the day watching the glorious sunset.

In addition to the guestroom renovation, guests staying on the resort’s exclusive Ritz-Carlton Club Level can revel in a redesigned Club Level Lounge, which doubled in capacity size (now seats 47 guests) and offers various seating areas – from cozy nooks to banquet seating. An open-concept layout evokes a sense of place with light blue and soft cream colors, illustrious silver and gold accents, grey porcelain tile floor, and stunning views of the California coast. At the center of the updated lounge sits a large-scale, white marble island for seasonal, housemade culinary presentations and paired wines by the glass. Exclusive artwork by Dawson Cole Fine Art dot the walls with one-of-a-kind pieces available for purchase.

Sunshine beaming through dramatic glass windows radiates the enhanced hallways, creating an open and bright space as guests are directed to their guestroom or suite. The corridors feature new carpeting reminiscent of the ocean with aquatic hues of blue swirled with cream accents, complemented by smoky blue and crisp white walls, accent bronze glass ceiling fixtures by Besa Lighting, and artwork tying in the resort’s ocean inspirations and historical connection to Dana Point surf culture. Curated by Kevin Barry Fine Art, a collection of canvas, photography, three-dimensional wall sculptures, and traditionally framed artwork are scattered throughout the hallways, along with new pieces in the guestroom bathrooms.

Are you ready to check-in and experience these “new” spaces? This resort that is already a favorite for so many of our jetsetters who cannot get enough of the views and elevated services at this property, so we look forward to more of you seeing the renovations first-hand.
