A Look at Pelican Hill at Newport Beach, CA

Pelican Hill is gorgeous.  For those who enjoy luxurious, private villas, Pelican Hill is the resort to go to.  Situated on the coast of Newport Beach in Southern California, Pelican Hill is a Palladian inspired architecture from Northern Italy.  Absolutely stunning, Pelican Hill is one of my favorite resort.

La Costa Resort and Spa- Presidential Suite

The presidential suite at La Costa Resort & Spa, Carlsbad, Ca, is by far the roomiest suite my hubby and I have ever stayed in.  For my birthday, my then bf, took me for the 2nd time at La Costa Resort & Spa.  Instead of staying at the one bedroom suite from our last trip, he chose the Presidential Suite.  I was floored by how huge this suite was! It had a living room with floor to ceiling windows, a luxurious dining area, two huge bedrooms (with its own expansive bathrooms and own sitting areas), and 4 balconies!!  Check out my photos from our trip below.
The La Costa Resort & Spa, presidential suite, took up the whole top floor, with the guest bedroom on the left, the living room in the middle and the master suite to the right.  The other 2 balconies are adjacent to the bedrooms.
