VEA Newport Beach, A Marriott Resort & Spa, Debuts Spring
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.
Translating to mean “see,” VEA’s namesake celebrates its defining ocean and city views of its location within Newport Beach. It will be a destination for socializing (with live music regularly, a vibrant pool scene, designer fashion experiences at nearby luxury shopping destination Fashion Island, and dynamic culinary experiences) but also for tucking away, whether in a solo retreat at a wellness suite or time spent at SpaVea. A captivating destination within an iconic city, guests of VEA will delight in a social sanctuary with views and experiences that embody the quintessential elements of Newport Beach.
At VEA, there will be three new food and beverage destinations:
A spacious restaurant/lounge at the heart of the hotel is connected to a lanai by collapsible glass doors that seamlessly blend indoors and out, featuring fire pits, cozy seating, live music, abundant greenery, ocean, and golf course views, breakfast/lunch/dinner service, and late-night offerings. Its cuisine will be Mediterranean in flavor and California in lifestyle and will serve bites throughout the day with a beverage focus, including tableside martinis.
A European-inspired coffee bar and patisserie in the lobby lounge featuring artisanal coffee with pastries and espresso drinks, which will transition into a wine bar in the evening with charcuterie and other shareable small plates.
In the back of the property will lie a poolside terrace bar that represents the end of the pier overlooking the Newport Beach Country Club, with a menu of California-inspired favorites, including local fresh seafood, craft beers, and signature cocktails (including a VEA favorite, a frozen Paloma with an Aperol finish).
The 14,000-square-foot spa will feature 14 treatment rooms, a dedicated saltwater pool, and a fitness center with a yoga studio, offering a variety of classes and equipment. In addition, there will be new cabanas, a private event lawn with a fireplace, and lounge seating at the spa pool.
It will begin debuting its refresh as soon as February, followed by rolled-out updates through the spring.
VEA Newport Beach is located at 900 Newport Center Dr., Newport Beach.
