Experience Ultimate Comfort at The Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach

Witness the magical holiday ambiance as you step into the Balboa Bay Resort lobby and common areas this season. Adorned with life-sized polar bears, playful penguins, twinkling lights, and elegant garlands, the resort emanates a festive spirit. Executive Chef Prabeen Prathapan and the culinary team have crafted a remarkable replica of the resort using 80 lbs of gingerbread dough, 40 lbs of frosting, and icing, and 15 lbs of candy.

The holiday season kicks off on December 1 at the resort with a delightful tree lighting ceremony. Enjoy live music playing classic holiday tunes while savoring complimentary treats and beverages by donating an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. Reservations are not necessary, and open seating is available after 5 p.m.

From December 14 to Sunday, December 18, guests can relish prime views of the Newport Beach Boat Parade. Secure a reservation for a window table at A+O Restaurant and Bar on the patio or catch the creatively adorned boats from the comfort of your guestroom balcony. The parade commences at 6:30 p.m. as it navigates Newport Harbor.

Experience fine dining while overlooking Newport Beach’s Top 10 luxury yachts at the outdoor dining terrace, complete with fire pits or heaters for warmth post-sunset. The festively decorated homes on Lido Island add to the holiday charm.

Indulge in A+O’s menu offerings, including delectable crispy crab cakes, grilled fresh fish, seasonal salads, and a black bean vegan burger paired with irresistible crispy fries and housemade ketchup.

Guestrooms are meticulously decorated in shades of blue to complement the marina’s theme outdoors. Stretch out on the plush pillow-top mattress adorned with luxurious Frette linens. In addition, a complimentary bottle of wine awaits on the private balcony, offering a serene waterfront view.

Luxury suites at the resort range from 1,100 to 3,000 square feet, featuring a private king bed, a cozy living room, a walk-in shower, and a separate half bath. The opulent Presidential Suite boasts a dining room for twelve and three private balconies overlooking the marina.

Celebrate Christmas Eve or Christmas Day with a festive holiday brunch by the water. Enjoy live music and enchanting carolers while savoring a splendid array of seasonal seafood dishes, including lobster, clams Rockefeller, seafood cioppino, and cranberry Chilean seabass. Delight in pistachio-crusted rack of lamb, prime rib, glazed pork tenderloin, assorted egg dishes, salads, sweet treats, and a hot chocolate station.
