Pantai Inn in La Jolla, California

When you are looking for an otherworldly escape, but are limited to trips not requiring miles of over-ocean travel, let the brand new Pantai Inn welcome you to a different side of San Diego. Modeled and styled completely to emulate a Balinese resort - from its Indonesian décor and tranquil guest rooms, to the personalized service fit for royalty - this boutique getaway is genuinely distinctive. The inn's fully restored bungalows, townhouses, and cottages are perched along the northern coast of San Diego, in the charming town of La Jolla, where the best of Southern California is within easy reach. The inn overlooks the glittering Pacific, so settle in to your spacious suite for a kicked back California experience. Separate dining areas and living rooms provide ample room to relax, and full kitchens offer convenience for stays short or long. Island essence will definitely find you in the Balinese tiled bathrooms, where hand-hammered copper sinks and soothing rain showers turn ordinary to exceptional. With these thoughtful details and more, you will find Pantai Inn to be wellworthy of its harmonious heralding.

Start your day with a stroll along the cliffside walking paths, breathing the ocean air and preparing yourself for a day of adventuring through the La Jolla and San Diego region. Minutes from the hotel, there are artful boutiques and renowned gourmet restaurants, or you can venture the 20-minute drive to San Diego proper. Whether you are instinctively animal-inclined or not, a visit to the world-famous San Diego Zoo is something everyone will enjoy, as you meander its scenic paths and cool foliage exploring the beautifully created exhibits. The adjacent Balboa Park is a huge area that encompasses many museums and gardens, and be sure to check out the Gaslamp Quarter for a vibrant scene both day and night. Back in the car, cross the bridge to Coronado Island and rent bicycles for the day, or head straight to any of the coastline's numerous beaches to simply relax in the sun. With so much to see, and such a charming place to stay, Pantai Inn brings the wonderment of Indonesian isles to your Southern California vacation.

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed at the Pantai Inn for three days last week and we wished we could have stayed longer. We booked to late to get an ocean view room but it really didn't matter. They have a lovely seating area outside with heaters to enjoy the ocean view and the breakfast room looks out at the same view. The buffet breakfast was a treat, the chef is wonderful delighting guests with apple cinnamon pancakes, raspberry infused muffins and the like. Fresh cookies are baked everyday as well and available in the lobby along with gourmet coffee and fruit infused water. The rooms are spacious and they are stocked with complimentary soda, water and snacks, such a nice surprise. They offer free passes to the La Jolla Sports Club so we could work out each day and its a very nice workout facility. The staff is very very helpful and gracious. I can't say enough and I will certainly return.

"No" is not in the vocabulary of the staff at the Pantai inn. We had world-class service during our 4 nights in a wonderful oceanfront suite. The included breakfast was great and the front desk/guest services team was always quick to provide anything we asked for. The breezy lobby with cookies every afternoon was always a treat for the kids coming and going from the cove, just steps away from the hotel. Amazing restaurants are all within a very short walk. If you want a relaxing, carefree stay in La Jolla, look no further. We have two small children and the Pantai Inn was very accommodating.

We were well cared for and given excellent service beyond our expectations. Can’t wait to go back. Worth every penny. Each of the three rooms was unique. Ocean view was off the chart amazing! Each employee was genuinely kind, knowledgeable and very helpful. We could not ask for more.

My family of 5 spent 4 fabulous nights in March at the Pantai Inn 3-bedroom cottage. The Inn is located across the street from a breathtaking cliff beach and short walk from Childrens Pool Cove where seals and sea lions gather to sun bathe and frolic. In the other direction is the heart of LaJolla with tons of great shopping and dining choices. The only drawback of the location is that there is not a swimming beach closeby. The beach closest to the hotel is accessed by a steep staircase and rocky path and would be too rocky to swim safely. We were very happy to lounge on the sandy part of the beach although the hotel offered a complimentary shuttle to nearby swimming beaches. For the same price as a hotel room in the area, our cottage was charming and spacious. We had 3 bedrooms, two full baths, a small kitchen, dining room, living room and patio. I loved the Balinese decor. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Small touches like personal notes and complimentary treats made us feel like we were staying in a posh resort. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good and free parking very appreciated.

Our time at Pantai Inn exceeded all our expectations of this charming boutique hotel. From the moment we arrived, and throughout our stay, we were very impressed with the friendliness, caring, and helpfulness of the entire staff. Our cottage accommodation was spacious and comfortable, had a completely stocked kitchen, including snacks, and a spectacular ocean view. Breakfast was delicious, plentiful, and creative. The outdoor seating area, which we used frequently, was a very tranquil spot. The Inn is ideally located for walks along the ocean as well as for its proximity to the boutiques and restaurants in town. Thank you to the entire staff for a lovely and restorative west coast visit! We look forward to our return.
