Huntington Beach just got a revamp.
I recently got to have a girls staycation at the new Pasea Hotel in Huntington Beach along with one of my best friends Kaitlynn Carter. We loved everything about the hotel, from the Gray Malin prints to the ocean-facing Penthouse Suite we were lucky enough to stay in. The Pasea is the most beautiful mix of California cool + modern chic and it brings sophistication to the sleepy beach town. We fell in love with the place and had the best time.
We started our Saturday morning with a private yoga session on the hotel’s lawn overlooking the ocean. There’s not a better way to wake up than a peaceful workout overlooking the Pacific, and it set the tone for the whole weekend. We then had the most amazing spa experience with a massage followed by a saltwater hot tub. Yoga + spa time was much needed and it was the most relaxed I’ve been in months.
For dinner, we went to the hotel’s restaurant Tanner’s and were able to try just about everything thanks to the chef. The whole menu was incredible but the curry risotto was my absolute favorite. We obviously had to follow dinner up with drinks at the rum bar on the rooftop deck. The roof was stunning, and it was the most perfect day.
We heard there was shopping close to the hotel, so we knew we wanted to check that out before heading home Sunday. We found a brand new shopping center adjacent to the hotel with unique, charming restaurants and shops. We made our way to the champagne bar, then to Petals + Pop where you can make your own flower bouquets which was so fun and cute. I also noticed The Bungalow, a great beachside bar—like the popular one Santa Monica—that’ll open in August.
We left feeling so refreshed and I’ll definitely be coming back to this little slice of heaven on the California coast.
