Unveiling Your Transformed Seaside Retreat

Step into Natural Renewal at Sanctuary Beach Resort

The Sanctuary Beach Resort has officially launched the final phase of its multi-year transformation that began in 2017 with a sumptuous lobby, community-focused lawn, tranquil spa, and elevated culinary experience. This final stage of this reimagination culminates in a property-wide renewal of guest rooms and premium upgrades to the resort experience this spring.

Reimagined Rooms & Suites

Our accommodations are here to redefine relaxation on the California coast. The Sanctuary Beach Resort will be restored to seaside majesty with completely transformed rooms by Farouki Farouki, an innovative architecture and interior design practice founded by husband-and-wife team Caroline and Sabri Farouki. When approaching the room transformation, the design was inspired by the elegant simplicity of modern coastal cabins. 

Each room is anchored by the intention to deepen the experience of peaceful and serene living. Likewise, the breathtaking vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the enchanting Marina Dunes Preserve inspired the textures and patterns woven throughout these spaces. Guests will be able to enjoy in-room artwork crafted by local artists or recycled art made with plants that grow by the sea.

Relaunched Spa

As of late 2023, The Spa at Sanctuary has reopened. Drawing inspiration from the resort’s seaside location, The Spa utilizes natural elements of the Marina Dunes and Pacific Ocean in a customized, holistic approach to your wellness, offering a unique and rejuvenating opportunity to further connect with yourself and your surroundings.

Elevated Outdoor Dining

Salt Wood Kitchen & Oysterette will also showcase an elevated outdoor space outfitted with glass walls and inviting, heated spaces where you simultaneously feel immersed in nature and comfortably protected from the elements. These sophisticated transformations make this award-winning restaurant ideal for private events and intimate gatherings with loved ones.
