For the fourth year in a row, the Resort at Pelican Hill has earned the AAA Five Diamond Award.
"From the beginning, Pelican Hill has instilled a specific culture in its people and in the product to passionately pursue a long-term vision focused on a world-class resort for the next 100 years, and beyond," said Kate Starr, Pelican Hill's public relations manager. "This is the focus that keeps Pelican Hill at the top."
Pelican Hill, which opened in Newport Coast in 2008, also received honors from Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Forbes, Robb Report, Wine Spectator, Golf Magazine and Golf Digest.
"Pelican Hill's consistent top ratings by respected organizations, like AAA, reaffirm the team's commitment to its long-term vision and its collective passion for hospitality at its finest," Starr said.
Starr also said that Pelican Hill has achieved all it has because of its surrounding community.
"For nearly four years, our neighbors, business associates and friends across Newport Beach and beyond have enthusiastically embraced Pelican Hill," she said. "The making of Newport Beach as a luxury-driven global destination is an endeavor we have all supported and can collectively take pride in."
