Experience-driven spaces at transformed resort in Orange County
Newport Beach, Calif.- Following an extensive transformation, VEA Newport Beach, a Marriott Resort & Spa, will officially debut this spring.
Formerly the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa, the property is undergoing a complete top-to-bottom refresh, including new coastal-inspired luxury guest rooms, the introduction of two new suite categories, three newly imagined restaurant and bar concepts, a wellness focused spa and high-performance fitness center, expansive new indoor and outdoor event spaces, and a luxury destination pool experience.
“As Newport Beach locals ourselves, we are proud to present something created by the community, for the community,” said Kory Kramer of Eagle Four Partners.
“Our objective was to create a resort experience authentic to the Newport Beach community, while being a California coastal destination unlike any other.”Kory Kramer
Translating to “see,” VEA’s name celebrates the defining ocean and city views of its Newport Beach location, providing guests a multitude of experiences to “see” and discover. Situated above—and featuring panoramic views of—Newport Beach’s scenic tapestry, the property is designed as a “social sanctuary,” a place where one can both get away, or be part of the social action when desired. It’s a destination that while not far from main metro hubs in Southern California, still feels miles away from the busy city buzz.
“Every design and programming decision was made with the guest experience in mind. Experience-driven spaces are what we’re known for, so we wanted VEA to be the ultimate example of this,” shares Pete Zak of Lyon Living.
