Relax in Monterey! Head to the Beach, Pool, Spa – or All Three!

If sipping poolside cocktails, laying out on the beach and relaxing spa days are your idea of a dream vacation – look no further than the Portola Hotel & Spa when planning your next getaway. From pool days to beach days, spa days to time in the Jacuzzi, your next “me time” trip is literally, just a click away.

For the Pool Day Lover

Casually walk from your guest room to our tropical inspired oasis featuring palm trees, comfy lounge chairs, and cabanas. Have breakfast, lunch and/or cocktails delivered, while reading a book, taking a dip in our heated pool or jacuzzi, or perhaps mixing things up with a poolside siesta.

For the Beach Lover

When in Monterey, one must visit the beach. Some of the beaches located on the Monterey Peninsula draw in more crowds than others, but all boast breathtaking views and the fresh sea air. Monterey Municipal Beach stretches from the pier next to Fisherman’s Wharf, almost all the way to the City of Seaside and is walking distance from the Portola. One of our favorite stretches is right along the Window by the Bay recreation area (near Monterey Bay Kayaks), this white sand beach is ideal for a quiet beach day and even allows dogs. Build a sandcastle, have a picnic, or stroll along the beach, letting the cool water run through your toes. Enjoy the view – keeping your eyes out for dolphins, whale tails and sea otters.

For the Day Spa Lover

Located on site here at the Portola Hotel & Spa, you will find Spa on the Plaza. This award-winning day spa provides the opportunity for you to reset, relax, reflect, and rejuvenate. Treat yourself to a Cocobalm Massage or perhaps a Riverstone Massage followed by a Deep Cleansing Facial or a full body Tropical Sugar Scrub. All culminating with a steam and down time in the Jacuzzi.
Relaxation awaits and it’s all right here at Monterey’s Portola Hotel & Spa!
