Laguna Beach

NO PASSPORT?  NO PROBLEM! –That is if you’re originating from the U.S.  Our ESCAPESEEKER team discovered what it’s like to experience THE ART OF LIVING at its best as we explored and embraced one of my favorite American escape destinations–the artists’ enclave of LAGUNA BEACH!

Our ESCAPESEEKER team has discovered time and time again that behind every incredible destination we have visited is a visionary–a man or woman who had the foresight to see beyond the obvious.  This holds true for the luxurious MONTAGE LAGUNA BEACH resort! It is hard to imagine when you step onto its immaculately landscaped grounds and look out into this expanse of vintage California style architecture–presiding over 30 acres, high above the most magnificent stretch of California Riviera beach that graces the grand Pacific–that this was once a domain of trailers and mobile homes!

Stay tuned for the ART OF LIVING episode.  We promise you’ll gain access to talented individuals who will inspire you, make you laugh, and oh, yes, those that will definitely make you hungry–because if there’s one thing ourESCAPESEEKER team has learned to appreciate in this job–it’s GREAT CUISINE!
