About The Resort at Pelican Hill
The Resort at Pelican Hill is the perfect spot to choose for a family looking to explore Southern California from a relaxing base with the very best activities and food. The whole family is catered for with 2 golf courses, one of the largest spas in California, 5 restaurants and one of the most unique swimming pools in the USA. The feel is relaxed and embraces the warm year round temperatures. There's a choice between the smaller bungalows - all with their own parking - and the larger villas. Pelican Hill suits a longer stay.
Newport Beach itself is home to a beautiful white sandy shoreline, a stunning harbour, extensive outdoor activities and fantastic shopping and dining, all under year-round southern California sunshine Its not surprising many celebrities call Newport Beach their home.
If you are a fashionista, you can feed your habit at Fashion Island, home to luxury brands such as Chanel, Prada and Dolce & Gabbana at major department stores like Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's.
