Hotel Overview

The Balboa Bay Club & Resort is set against a stunning California Gold Coast backdrop complete with million-dollar yachts and spectacular bay views. The $65 million luxury resort opened to the public in the spring of 2003 and is the only full-service waterfront hotel in Newport Beach. Reminiscent of an Italian villa, it epitomizes the ideal coastal retreat.

This world-class destination situated on 15 prime acres has a rich heritage, having attracted Hollywood's elite as well as upscale travelers, honeymooners, and business executives. The 160-room hotel built on three levels shares the same bay-front address as the private 57- year-old Balboa Bay Club, whose star-studded guest register bears the signatures of luminaries including John Wayne, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Natalie Wood, and many more.

Luxurious guestrooms designed with a residential flair combine a casual mix of light and dark wood furnishings. Tropical-patterned drapes complement plantation shutters which lead to generous patios overlooking the courtyard or bay. Bathrooms are appointed with dual sinks featuring granite countertops, marble baths and flooring, and picture-window-sized beveled-glass mirrors.

Sumptuous down-filled duvets and over-sized pillows in crisp white shams adorn comfortable pillow-top beds. Casually elegant suites are spacious and include fireplaces. The Presidential Suite includes a grand piano, formal dining for ten, and a comfortable living area bridged by a dual fireplace.

Public restaurants and lounges include The First Cabin waterfront dining room with alfresco seating; it's a DiRoNA Award winner offering innovative California cuisine with a continental flair for breakfast, lunch and dinner; Duke's Place, a bar and entertainment lounge; Library Lounge for cocktails, snacks and afternoon tea.

The 17,000-square-foot spa located in the members' clubhouse is open to guests of the Resort. The spa features men's and women's relaxation lounges with inviting fireplaces and cozy seating areas. A comprehensive relaxation program includes a sauna, whirlpool and inhalation steam room. The facilities house nine rooms for massages, skin care and hydrotherapy treatments inspired by the spectacular surroundings.
