Maximize Your Membership Benefits With This Buzz-Worthy Itinerary
There’s a certain buzz about the Newport Beach Vacation Club, and if we know you at all, we’d say that’s the reason you joined. You relish an opportunity to putt, sip, savor and socialize—whether it be clinking glasses poolside or enjoying some tee time with your entourage. You’re The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel of your circle—witty, well-dressed and always in the know.
With that, we welcome you into our sun-drenched world, where your membership grants access to Newport Beach’s most elite experiences. From opulent stays to gourmet delights and exclusive entertainment, every corner of our coastal haven beckons to be explored by individuals with a certain charisma and a free-wheeling, grab-life-by-the-tennis-balls disposition.
A sanctuary in the center of it all, there’s no better place to unpack your bags than VEA Newport Beach. This 16-story stunner invites guests in with all the courtesies and hospitalities one could wish for. Swill martinis by the saltwater pool, release tension with a trip to the spa and revel in the coastal-meets-cosmopolitan ambiance at VIEW Restaurant & Lounge. VEA is the entryway into a lifestyle worth living—a place where stunning seascapes and palm tree silhouettes set the scene for a rendezvous like no other.
Our club culture revolves around epicurean endeavors, and the grounds of Newport Beach are home to a handful of prestigious restaurants. Rise and shine with a decadent brunch at Lido Bottle Works, where seasonal ingredients are woven into farm-to-table creations that tantalize taste buds and often evoke an “I’ll have what she’s having” response. As the sun climbs higher, let JOEY Newport Beach sweep you away with a fusion of global flavors and an ambiance hot enough to blow a fuse. As the sun says farewell, set your watch to island time with a round of mai tais at Billy’s at the Beach, indulge in Asian-inspired delights at Starfish or enjoy aprés-dinner libations and live tunes at The Quiet Woman.
What’s a getaway without a little play? Members of our not-so-exclusive vacation club can enjoy access to a multitude of recreational activities both on land and at sea. Dwell poolside at VEA in a private cabana or set sail through the blue waters of the bay aboard your very own electric boat, where you can be the captain of your nautical escapade. For those who seek sport and prestige, the Newport Beach Tennis Club offers a refined on-court experience. Just be sure to adhere to the dress code, as below-the-knee shorts are not only frumpy but frowned upon.
In Newport Beach, retail therapy is second nature. Throughout the grounds, you’ll encounter several world-class shopping destinations perfect for an afternoon of browsing—and by browsing, we mean buying. Explore the coastal enclave of Fashion Island, an open-air haven where luxury brands and designer boutiques await your discerning eye. From statement pieces to timeless trends, every storefront tells a story of elegance and taste. On the other side of town, Lido Marina Village invites club members to explore its quaint alleyways and white brick storefronts, which house notable brands like LoveShackFancy, Le Labo, Eberjey and more.
