The Sanctuary Beach Resort—positioned between windswept sand dunes and the idyllic Monterey Bay—is the perfect escape to a luxurious seaside California setting with golf, beautiful sunsets, swimming and nature as part of your stay. Spend your time golfing and add your favorite wellness activities such as beach yoga, exploring the area by bike or enjoying the heated swimming pool. Downtown Monterey, with its world-class aquarium and whale-watching excursions, is just 15 minutes from the resort. And a half-hour inland, wine aficionados can discover the famed wineries of Carmel Valley and the impressive Santa Cruz Mountains. You might just decide that two nights aren't enough at this rare Monterey Bay hotel on the beach. Nevertheless, even one hour spent here is pure pleasure.
