Welcome to Newport Beach
Known as the Jewel of the California Riviera, midway between San Diego and Los Angeles, Newport Beach offers groups of up to 500 a “sea-level-meets-next-level” experience. Since the Golden Age of Hollywood, starlets and captains of industry alike would flock to the largest recreational yacht harbor on the West Coast. This serene aquatic playground, combined with a varied landscape of nature sanctuaries and quaint coastal neighborhoods, has evolved into an idyllic escape for groups seeking inspired experiences.
Meet with Ease
Travel into Newport Beach is effortless, thanks to airlift service from LAX, Long Beach, and its closest award-winning airport, John Wayne Airport Newport Beach. Once your attendees collect their bags, it’s a quick drive to the doorstep of a Newport Collection property, any of which are 10 minutes away from a toes-in-the sand, Instagram-worthy moment. Whether your group seeks a walkable adventure from a boutique shopping excursion to their amenity-rich guest rooms or a multi-day outdoor active adventure, access to your ideal program is always within reach.
The last few years have awakened a “Luxury Renaissance” in this stylish coastal retreat. Known for its prime coastal location, chef-driven restaurants and buzzy venues, Newport Beach offers luxury-seekers a fully comprehensive solution for their groups. The latest editions to the destination’s collection of upscale properties promise to deliver indulgent stays from the moment guests check in.
This Spring, VEA Newport Beach, A Marriott Resort and Spa emerged as a totally reimagined cosmopolitan resort. Nestled alongside picturesque golf greens with a view of the Pacific in the near horizon, both guest rooms and flexible meeting spaces celebrate the riches of our coastal landscape. With 68,000 square feet of available event space, an indulgent 14,000 square foot spa and plenty of unique dining options, your group will be poolside, scheming their extended stay.
In Summer of 2023, the Pendry brand returns to its Orange County origins to unveil Pendry Newport Beach. Steps away from the celebrated outdoor shopping mecca Fashion Island, this stunning contemporary social hub will offer 295 guest rooms and 14,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Picture a “members-only” vibe with bespoke experiences and a stylish top-note to any event or program.
Welcome the Outdoors In
Southern California is often thought of as an outdoor active wonderland, and Newport Beach enjoys the lion’s share of venues and group activities that celebrate their gorgeous weather and landscapes. From incentive groups looking to add sailing lessons to their bucket list of achievements to attendees looking to squeeze in a zippy electric bike ride after a long day of sessions, there are so many ways to get moving! Enjoy an early morning golf game on a Fazio-designed course along the coast, or even join in on a fun treasure hunt with your crew aboard a fleet of electric Duffy Boats (with charcuterie board and beverages, of course!) End a day of focused sessions by wandering out to a sun-drenched terrace, or board a gorgeous yacht for a cocktail cruise lit by an amber-hued sunset. Al fresco experiences come naturally in Newport.
