There’s nothing quite like watching a scarlet sun fall behind the horizon of the big blue Pacific, and no place quite like Huntington, with its long sandy beaches, iconic lifeguard towers and lengthy pier to behold its beauty.

With a prime location, and relaxed atmosphere, the Waterfront Resort Huntington Beach offers travellers every opportunity to experience the best of the classic California lifestyle this area has to offer.

Partnered with Waterfront Adventures, the hotel offers a full list of activities for eager-to-adventure families, whether it’s a surf lesson, board rental or a kayak tour you want to organise. Or, if its an eclectic night out you're looking for, take a short stroll to Downtown where there is no shortage of bars, lounges and live entertainment.

A large outdoor swimming pool stays heated all year round and a Jacuzzi bubbles beside the seaside pool deck, perfect for soaking tired muscles after a day of paddling, or staying warm on a cooler evening.

You also have access to a state-of-the-art fitness centre, featuring flat screen televisions, Precor® machines and weight training equipment.

Wake up to watch the waves roll in from your private furnished balcony, or finish your day with a striking coastal sunset from the poolside patio. Enjoy a fresh bistro style meal at the hotel’s signature Shade’s Restaurant, opt for surf lessons or play some beach volleyball on the resort or on the beach across the street. Roast s’mores over a bonfire under the stars or shop at the variety of fashion and lifestyle stores lining the Main Street. As a bonus, the resort also offers complimentary boogie boards and beach equipment for long lazy days by the sea.

But this famed tourist destination, has many more draw cards than just its beautiful beaches. With the hotel’s handy location, right in the heart of the Orange County, you can easily arrange day trips to major attractions like Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm and the Aquarium of the Pacific.

This Hilton Hotel prides itself on thoughtful design and homely comfort, while making full use of their close proximity to the ocean, allowing you to drink in the picturesque Pacific Ocean and its rolling waves from your private balcony, the resort’s signature Shades Restaurant and Bar, or the poolside patio

Surf & Other Activities

SURF

Huntington’s often fun, and sometimes epic sand banks are just across the road from your oceanfront room. While the Pier, which is renowned as one of the better, albeit more crowded surf spots, is within easy walking distance.

All in all, Southern-California is speckled with a variety of great waves, and if you’re willing and able to go for small trips up or down the coastline, you won’t have to look too far.

Winter and autumn are arguably the best times for surfing, but you can still score a nice early session during summer before the onshore winds pick up at around mid-morning. Like any big, open coastline, the right swells and winds have the potential to create  some memorable waves during your time in California.

Quality waves like Lowers, Trestles, and Blacks Beach are within driving distance, but if you prefer to stay-put Huntington will almost always have a wave to play on.

You can also easily organize Learn to Surf Lessons through the hotel, or hire boards and wet suits across the road.

OTHER ACTIVITIES

Outdoor Pool

Gaze at the ocean as you enjoy the beautiful temperature of the outdoor heated pool or jump in the Jacuzzi by the pool deck. Pool hours are from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m, seven days a week.

Fitness Center

As a guest you have full access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, featuring flat screen televisions, Precor® machines and weight training equipment, seven days a week from 5 am until  midnight.

Poolside Cabanas

During summer you can book a poolside cabana to watch movies or play the Xbox on your flat screen TV, with full food and bottle service options available too.

Beach fun

Just a short stroll from your room, you have access to sand volleyball courts, on the actual premises and on the beach across the road.

Free boogie boards and beach equipment rental is included, while surf lessons, kayak tours or beach bonfires can be arranged.

Shopping and entertainment Huntington’s downtown and Main Street offer a huge range of shops, bars and venues to entertain the whole family, or couples looking for a great night out.

James, (August 2015)      

I used to live in Huntington Beach but never explored this property. It is a great place to stay, right by the beach and downtown. The facilities are great and the rooms set up well, and as far as I can tell every room has a view of the ocean. I would stay here again, if I get a chance.

Janine, (September 2015)

Thank you for making us feel welcome, we had a very relaxing and restful break before heading home to NZ. If I had to describe your hotel in one word it would be “easy”. We will be back next year for sure.

Colleen, (September 2015)

This hotel has everything. The ideal location across from the beach, fantastic amenities including bike rentals, boogie board rentals and our favorite bonfire with a butler on the beach. Food was amazing, accommodations were perfect for our family of 5, and the concierge made sure to exceed all of our expectations. We'll definitely be back!
