Paséa Hotel & Spa has a Penthouse with a Master Suite living room (here) and Master Suite bedroom (below). Both have floor-to-ceiling windows with ocean views.
There’s a new luxury hotel on the block in Southern California. Just a stone’s throw from the Huntington Beach Pier, the Paséa Hotel & Spa debuted in June as the newest addition to the Meritage Collection, which includes four other luxury properties across California and one resort in Kauai. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Paséa has a contemporary design scheme inspired by its setting; think local artwork and distressed wood finishes.
Facilities run the gamut from a fitness center and yoga classes to the sparkling pools and Balinese-inspired Aarna Spa featuring ESPA products. Bicycles are complimentary, and there’s even a Paséa-branded pedicab to take you to the beach. Tanner’s, the signature restaurant, serves California cuisine with Pacific views. Did we mention the Beach Butlers? They can hook you up with sunscreen, surf lessons, and more.
Paséa also aims to become a destination event venue with expansive meeting/event space in a prime oceanfront spot. There are 11 meeting rooms with all the latest audiovisual technology, plus an 8,400-square-foot ballroom abutting the Ocean Lawn. Tip: The Blue Room has its own fire pit on a terrace.
Kitted out with FRESH bath products, Keurig coffeemakers, and custom Frette linens, the 250 guestrooms afford sweeping views of the coastline from private balconies. Nice Touch: The rooms have hooded sweatshirt bathrobes. You’ll also find top-notch technology; guests can open their room doors with their own mobile device, and adjust their room ambiance with the Evolve Temperature and Lighting Control System.
We’d say the best room in the house is the Penthouse Suite, which offers 1,900 square feet of space. From this perch, guests are privy to 180-degree views over the ocean. The sprawling bathroom has both a rainshower and a free-standing tub. Luxe perks include a full-service kitchen and the double-sided fireplace separating the dining room and the entry hall. Penthouse guests also get access to a cabana at the pool for a day.
