Our secluded beach retreat, positioned between windswept sand dunes and the idyllic Monterey Bay, is a perfect starting point for a memorable Monterey vacation.

The Sanctuary Beach Resort’s on-property amenities satisfy guests’ desires for both nature as well as luxury, while nearby attractions offer singular wine, seafood and adventure experiences (think: marine sanctuaries and national parks, trattorias facing the marina and secret wine cellars).

At the adjacent Marina Dunes Preserve and state beach, guests can marvel at the pristine, protected stretch of shoreline. And without ever leaving The Sanctuary Beach Resort’s 19 acres of oceanfront property, travelers can appreciate the region’s natural beauty.

The Sanctuary is one of the very few beachfront Monterey hotels to offer full resort services, including pampering at the Spa, dining at Salt Wood Kitchen & Oysterette and cottage accommodations with unmatched bay and beach views.

Downtown Monterey, with its world-class aquarium and whale-watching excursions, is just 15 minutes from The Sanctuary Beach Resort. And a half-hour inland, wine aficionados and adventurous travelers can discover the famed wineries of the Carmel Valley and the impressive Santa Cruz Mountains. See the stunning coastline along Big Sur’s Route 1 an hour south, or take a day trip to San Francisco, only two hours to the north.

Whether you’re seeking a moment to unwind on a coastal road trip, looking for a quiet beach getaway, or have plans to spend your holiday in Monterey, travelers will find precisely what they’re looking for at The Sanctuary Beach Resort.
