Laguna Beach, CA
Hidden Gem on the California Coast
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
A petite resort nestled above Shaw’s Cove, Hotel Joaquin is a gem hidden in plain sight along the Pacific’s rich coastline. Marrying the breezy spirit of a faraway island escape with the pioneering soul of California’s first Spanish settlers, we invite you to disconnect from the ordinary and rediscover the indulgence of your innate senses. Our individually designed rooms are equal parts chic and playful with one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, customized furniture and curated artwork. Luxurious bathrooms feature monolithic imported stone offset by glinting solid brass fixtures. Hand-cut and crafted tile pays homage the timeless work of coastal craftsmen.
