Rain returns to S.CA….

This Sunday deserves Champagne at The Resort at Pelican Hill

View from the Resort at Pelican Hill

Above the Coast in Newport Beach, CA is one of my absolute favorite 5 star resorts, The Resort at Pelican Hill. (And yes, only 5 miles down the coast from my home, isn’t that magnificent!) Even as a day visit, the grounds are beautiful to wander around, then enjoy a cocktail in one of the lovely bars or around The Coliseum Pool.

Travel + Leisure magazine - the Hotels issue

With today being the Oscar’s, I have ordered the Red Carpet Cocktail, which has one of my favorite Champagnes, Veuve Cliquot Brut, and a bit of Rasberry Purée and Chambord.

Yesterday my mailbox graced me with my favorite Travel and Leisure annual issue, The Hotels Issue…time to settle in with my drink at Pelican Hill and enjoy reading which hotels around the world I will be visiting next…care to come along?
