A SoCal Getaway
If you’re searching for a Southern California escape, I recommend Pelican Hill, a 504 acre hotel and spa on the coast in Newport Beach, in Orange County. The fantastic getaway features ocean-view bungalow guest rooms, and suites, hundreds of multi-room villas, and an award-winning day spa. Not to mention, two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses. Throughout December, Pelican Hill also hosts a number of gourmet culinary classes, and (through December 11th) a farm-to-table menu at Pelican Grill, featuring seasonal produce from the nearby Irvine Ranch. Couple the incredible cuisine with a northern Italian dinner at the fabulous ANDREA restaurant and a few treatments at the in-house spa, and Pelican Hill quickly becomes your heavenly retreat, just a 45 minute drive from LAX.
