Hilton International announced plans to reflag of the independent Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California, as the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club.

The resort, which first opened its doors to guests in 2001, was a St. Regis at opening and parted ways with that brand in 2016.  It was purchased by Ohana Real Estate Investors, a real estate investment and management firm, in 2019.

The property will become part of the Waldorf Astoria brand on January 3, 2021.

“The Monarch Beach Resort’s impeccable product, unmatched service standard and enviable location make it a perfect addition to the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts portfolio,” said Danny Hughes, who serves as Hilton’s president of the Americas region.

The 400-key property features rooms with a blue, green, and crisp white palette and ocean-inspired artwork.  All rooms have balconies and ground-floor rooms have patios with fire pits.

The resort features a private beach club, reachable via tram, as well as several pools and an 18-hole golf course.

Dining options at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Club include the Bourbon Steak Orange County steakhouse; Aveo Table + Bar, which serves Mediterranean cuisine while offering ocean views; the Monarch Bay Beach Club bar and restaurant; the 33° North lobby bar, also with ocean views; Club 19, a gastro pub on the golf course; and Sombra, which offers Mexican cuisine.

The hotel has over 30,000 square feet (2,787 square meters) of indoor meeting and event space, and 60,000 square feet (5,574 square meters) of outdoor space including a botanical garden.
