Last week my boyfriend and I took a trip to beautiful Southern California for a golf tournament. We spent six days total in SoCal, but the first four days were all about Huntington Beach. I wanted a cool hotel with a nice gym so I could be productive while A was at golf. Neither of us had ever visited this part of town so I searched Instagram to find a great looking spot and found the Paséa Hotel & Spa.
The location was excellent; amazing ocean views from the room, pool, and fun rooftop bar. A glass of wine during golden hour on the rooftop bar is highly recommended. While I didn’t spend much time at the pool, it seemed like a fun time. SoCal just isn’t warm enough for this Florida girl! The pool area was also very family friendly (LOTS of kids).
The room was simple but spacious and we had a view of the ocean and sunset. The room came with a complementary bottle of wine plus two bottles of water per day. A mini fridge is a MUST for us, considering we always travel with almond milk, fruit, and a few other items for breakfast. We were able to fit our items in the small refrigerator with no problem.
The hotel restaurant, Tanner’s, is a lively eatery serving American cuisine. Our favorite dish on the menu was the grouper ceviche. Unfortunately, they didn’t have many healthy items on the menu. And honestly, Huntington Beach in general really lacks healthy food spots. It seems like they are a bit behind some of their neighboring towns. But overall, we enjoyed Tanner’s and were so grateful they were able to accommodate our gluten and dairy allergy needs.
The bustling gym and spa area was one of the best parts of the stay. The gym was large and well-kept with great equipment. Did not book a spa treatment, but their boutique had lots of cute items for sale including brands like lululemon, Alo, and Beyond Yoga. I noticed many hotel guests heading into the spa and working out all throughout the day. We had some great workouts together plus lots of stretching. If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember seeing lots of posts from me at the gym including a live workout on my story and an IGTV video. I was also able to FaceTime with a few clients from the gym so a great WiFi connection is always appreciated!
We loved that the Paséa Hotel is located right next to an outdoor shopping mall and food hall. Being able to walk everywhere and explore was a huge plus for us. During our stay we went to dinner, did some shopping, and I even got my nails done. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Huntington Beach and we hope to go back to the Paséa Hotel & Spa!
