Sorbet Magazine Features Pacific Edge

Sorbet, the third of six South County Publications by Editor-in-Chief, Jody Robinson, featured Pacific Edge Hotel in a two-page spread in their July print and online editions. 

As written in Sorbet....

"Situated steps from the sand along a scenic stretch of Laguna Beach, the Pacific Edge Hotel features five themed beachfront suites, each with its own signature designs and atmosphere, characterized by stunning interior decor that includes a comfortable living room overlooking the ocean, a VIP Bungalow Host, a private bathroom with shower, bar area, valet parking, catered food and beverages, air conditioning, flat screen televisions, and a private deck area with direct access with direct access to the beach. For our family, getting to the beach in the first place is a bit of a holiday in itself." 

For more information on spending a daycation in one of the Bungalows or hosting a special event in these unique beachfront hot spots, contact Melinda Parker at 949.281.5728.

South County Publications Editor-in-Chief, Jody Robinson, joined us for some rest, relaxation, and, of course, fun in the sun to showcase LIFE ON THE PACIFIC EDGE. Featured in the July issues of Marmalade OC and South County Mag, the article highlights how YOUR BEACH DAY, JUST GOT A MAJOR MAKEOVER. 

"Having discovered the luxury service of a private bungalow to relax for the day by the waves (and host my husband’s recent birthday soiree with family and friends) seems like a fairy godmother granted all my wishes at once. Typically, hotel beachside service includes a branded hotel umbrella, chaise lounge, mai tai, and some toys for the kiddos. Pacific Edge has taken the concept a entirely new level." 

"If you just can’t see outdoor adventure and relaxing beach day going together, try the Billabong Bungalow. My favorite of the five, offering a soothing color palette and laid back beach vibes, is the perfect spot to grab some sand and laze the day away. The reclaimed wood accents and epic images of surfers riding waves on the walls certainly add to the ambiance, making the bungalow the most divine daycation yet. With five bungalows to choose from, there’s something for everyone: the day we were there, an entire extended family were on hand in honor of their matriarch’s 80th birthday; a group of motocross racers and enthusiasts were celebrating a recent win; even a band of boys (men who went to high school together 20 years prior) were gathered for a day in the sun that was “reminiscent of a grown up version” of their childhood man fort. From glamorous Gorjana + Griffin to the fierce Fox Head bungalow, summer is waiting for you at Pacific Edge."

Architectural Digest Mexico names Pacific Edge Hotel a 'Small Coastal Paradise'

Architectural Digest MEXICO features Pacific Edge Hotel as a TOP Destination Hotel!

As translated from this article: 

"Small Coastal Paradise: The Pacific Edge Hotel is situated in one of the most charming areas of Southern California.

Located between Los Angeles and San Diego, Laguna Beach is a town that seduces all its visitors and has many restaurants, cafes, shops, and art galleries and above all, is on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Edge Hotel, a member group of Joie de Vivre, offers guests a unique stay, as most of the rooms look out onto the beach. Since the hotel is in the center of town, you can do everything on foot."

COVER STORY: Pacific Edge Hotel featured in OC Register

Pacific Edge Hotel took the lead in a featured cover story by the OC Register, on newsstands TODAY, titled: Beach butler? Surfing safari? Shoreside hotels in O.C. get creative with their offerings.

The beachfront Bungalows definitely set the Pacific Edge Hotel apart from any Orange County or Southern CA hotel on the coast. As the article quotes, "Pacific Edge General Manager Thomas Lee said the hotel needed meeting space, so managers had to think creatively about how to offer something that would set it apart from other hotels."

"A lot of hotels have beach access, but they're not right on the beach like us," he said. "Having that, it's a very unique advantage for us."

It was a perfect coincidence that the OC Register stopped by to photograph the hotel on the same day Miriam Gin of Simply X Classic hosted her blogger luncheon in the Gorjana and Griffin Bungalow. Along with fellow fashion and lifestyle bloggers, Kathleen Barnes of Carrie Bradshaw Lied, Lydia Webb of Jetting Jewels and Niki Mencon of My Style Diaries, the ladies' social gathering played a major part of this featured piece. 

We can all certainly agree that a meeting in the Bungalows makes a work day, a GREAT day at Pacific Edge Hotel. Bungalows are available for meetings, social events or just a day for family or friends to hang on the beach with their very own private space to make their stay a VIP experience.

We were thrilled to host these chic ladies for an afternoon, being that two have been to Pacific Edge Hotel before and covered the properly so fabulously.

The Gorjana & Griffin Bungalow was the best spot for these fashion bloggers to sip on champagne, nosh on delicious nibbly bites from The Deck and make their many costume changes for photoshoots with the gorgeous coast as their backdrop!

You can count on fashion bloggers to take stunning photos onsite. Thanks to Miriam, Kathleen, Nikki and Lydia for their stylish stay at PEH!
