Coastal cool has a new home at The Ranch at Laguna Beach-the newest Laguna Beach private resort and luxury hotel. Secluded within a peaceful blend of canyon and sea, our authentic private resort invites guests to get caught up in the world of a Laguna local that's off the beaten path in every sense.

Grafted into the Laguna culture and notched into the perfect convergence of land and sea, a stay at The Ranch LB is a microcosm of the best of Laguna in one organic, refined place. Our staff offers an insider's take on hidden surf spots, shops and specialty galleries. This laid-back luxury hotel speaks to the Laguna mindset.

This year, The Ranch at Laguna Beach ranked on Condé Nast Traveler's list of the top 10 in their 2019 Readers' Choice Awards. We are also proud to be voted Top 10 Resort Hotels in California, in Travel + Leisure's 2020 World's Best Awards.

Our restaurant, bar and private dining room celebrate the story of California's history of organic farming, brewing, and oenology. Outdoor patio seating unveils stunning Aliso Canyon and golf course views. As an homage to the original homesteaders, fresh-made food and drink are a focus throughout your dining experience, with many ingredients harvested on property. What we don't grow here is thoughtfully sourced.

The menu changes with each season, integrating fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables grown and gathered from our own half-acre Harvest Garden. The new bar is a haven of sociability, featuring an innovative handcrafted cocktail menu, enticing wine list and 18 craft beers on tap-all for sipping along with earnest conversation.

The Harvest team shares their masterfully creative and intensely local take on Californian comfort food designed with food-lovers in mind.
