As the temperatures cool off, the sun continues to shine at Hotel Joaquin, a petite seaside resort in Laguna Beach, California. Treat yourself to Laguna Beach’s picturesque setting, where bright blue skies, warm sand and cool evenings mark the turn of the fall season. Relax by the sparkling blue pool where St. Barth’s and the French Riviera meet with custom daybeds and chaise lounges. Guests have access to a private beach paired with an all-access pass to the Adventure Outpost—home to city bicycles, bodyboards, Dafin fins, corn hole, football, spike ball, Frisbees, Kadima sets and more. Hotel Joaquin has everything from ocean and beach set ups to morning coffee service, to Mediterranean-inspired menus served al fresco at Saline overlooking Laguna’s stunning coastline.
This luxury, warm-weather seaside sanctuary is owned and operated by Auric Road, a collection of petite resorts honoring historic properties’ pasts and creating beautiful futures for them. Originally constructed in 1944, Hotel Joaquin is a charming bungalow-style former motor lodge that was gutted, renovated over 12 months, and fully reborn in September 2018 as a European-inspired luxury respite. This relaxing oasis features 22 rooms with small batch in-room amenities, sweeping views, and bespoke resort-style service, encouraging guests to relax in style.
