About The Spa at Balboa Bay Resort

Just off the Pacific Coast Highway, centrally located between L.A. and San Diego, lies the 15-acre Balboa Bay Resort, currently Newport Beach’s only full-service bayfront property. The lovely design esthetic draws inspiration from Balboa’s laidback Orange County coastal setting, while offering an elegant, Mediterranean vibe befitting of its Four-Diamond prestige. A 10,000-square-foot spa, with a menu of classic and bespoke treatments, along with delightful touches like a lounge area with fireplace, makes it easy for guests to surrender to relaxation, as do the 159 guest rooms, stylishly bedecked with rattan furnishings and plantation shutters that create a sophisticated beach-type feel. Gourmet waterfront dining is complemented by refreshing sea breezes, and guests of this Newport Beach haven will enjoy access to the private Balboa Bay Club.

Balboa Bay Resort is part of the Meritage Collection.

Menu of Services

Set on the harbor, the Spa at Balboa Bay Resort, totaling 10,000 square feet, mingles Mediterranean allure with the casual charm Newport Beach radiates. The menu provides a healthy mix of wellness and relaxation, with rejuvenating therapies that nurture body and soul. Services include the Sea Stone and Mind & ‘Sole’ massage modalities; body treatments such as the Wine Country scrub, which utilizes Napa Valley grape seeds, and the “OC” scrub, infused with orange blossom and Vitamin C; and the signature Epicuren Facial with hot cinnamon peel. Luxury product lines used by the spa’s therapists comprise Eminence, Epicuren, Coola, South Seas, Get Fresh, and Kai.

Time unwinding in the fireside lounge is a must, as is a visit through the heat therapies circuit, where spa-goers alternate among 10-minute sessions in the eucalyptus-infused steam room, dry sauna, and whirlpool with 15-minute cooling immersions in between each step. Guests can also squeeze in a workout at the fitness center, or schedule a beauty treatment at Studio Six Salon.

Facilities & Amenities

The waterfront Balboa is located at the halfway point between L.A. and San Diego, affording resort guests easy access to more than 10 miles of sun-dappled Newport beaches; Disneyland®, Knott’s Berry Farm, LEGOLAND, and other theme parks; and many of Southern California’s championship golf courses. Adjacent to the resort is Balboa Bay Club, a members-only establishment that offers guests waterfront pools, exclusive dining, access to a private beach, and more. Water enthusiasts can hit the surf by means of kayaking or paddleboarding; groups of up to 12 can rent electric Duffy boats to cruise along the bay. In addition, Catalina Island, renowned for its prime scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing, is a 60-minute boat ride away.

Meeting space totals 17,000 square feet, encompassing 11 flexible breakout rooms and 6,000 square feet of outdoor options. A 24-hour business center also caters to those traveling for work.

Rooms & Dining

Balboa Bay Resort’s 159 guest rooms, 10 of them suites, are designed to reflect SoCal’s picturesque coastal surroundings. Light streams through plantation shutters that lead to private balconies or patios, and marble bathrooms are equipped with attractive fixtures such as dual sinks, deep soaking tubs, and separate showers. Guests can utilize amenities like wireless Internet access and 42-inch flat-screen TVs and fall asleep soundly on feather pillow-top mattresses.

Guests have their choice of fine or casual dining at Balboa’s two restaurants, where highlights comprise not only enticing cuisine, but bay views as well. The award-winning First Cabin Restaurant serves California-continental fare with an emphasis on fresh seafood and steak entrées (flavorful dishes include sautéed dover sole, seared Chilean sea bass, and pan-seared filet mignon), while the laidback bayfront Duke features a light bar menu, plus, nightly live music and dancing.
