Full-service spa: Balboa Bay Resort offers a full-service spa complete with traditional and signature massage services, skin treatments and body therapies, along with whirlpools, steam rooms, and saunas. You can treat yourself to luxurious relaxation while revitalizing your mind and body at this harborside resort spa (the Eucalyptus-infused steam room is a personal favorite).
Rooftop buzz: As part of Fairmont’s commitment to protecting the environment, beehives have been placed in the hotel’s rooftop garden, providing plenty of bees that can pollinate area gardens and parks. The honey is harvested and then used to create a variety of crowd-pleasing commodities. Fairmont Beeswax Skin Care Honey Cream, Bee Balm and Lip Dew are just a few of the delectable honey products that you can enjoy while staying at the Fairmont Newport Beach.

Whether you desire a tranquil escape or a place for family fun, you can find your fit at one of the three pool options. The main pool comes equipped with a hot tub, water slide, and spray park and ping-pong table. Enjoy yourself in one of the many poolside cabanas while your kids play in their very own water park.
Luxury lounge: Situated on the 20th floor of Island Hotel is the newly developed Island Club, a luxurious space that was transformed from a presidential suite to a personalized, private lobby with amenities tailored specifically to the needs of guests. With floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of the Newport Beach coastline and harbor, and comfortable, stylish furnishings throughout, you’d think you were on an island all your own!
