Being single on Valentine’s Day is a drag. The classic dilemma. You’re stuck between couples, a lust for romance and a disdain for the commercialism of a holiday that has completely excluded those who are unattached. However, there is an option that you may have not considered yet – a romantic staycation for two with your best girlfriend. I’m a firm believer that our girlfriends are our soulmates and men are there to have fun along the way (yes, I did just paraphrase Sex and the City). What better excuse than to grab your favorite babe, lots of champagne, lingerie, some film and hit the road? Jenavieve Belair photographs Jenny Parry in our latest Hotel Tour that takes you to the shores of Laguna Beach. Welcome to La Casa Del Camino.
The hotel’s aesthetic is nothing short of classic elegance. Jenny and Jenavieve stayed in the Spanish King, which provides ton of natural light – perfect for a quick magic hour shoot. In addition, there is a lust-worthy Moroccan tiled bathroom featuring a huge bathtub. If you’re pining for ocean views, upgrade to the Spanish Queen with a partial ocean view. Basically, you will wake up to the ocean breeze. Nothing beats that.
Take a quick walk to the beach and feel the salt open your pores and rejuvenate your mind. Laguna Beach is a scenic haven. With coffee in hand, you can start your morning listening to the sounds of waves crashing and trying to spot where the ocean ends and the sky begins.
K’Ya Bistro is La Casa Del Camino’s in-house restaurant that boasts a Mediterranean-inspired menu and an emphasis on small plates. The ambience is reminiscent of a city far larger than Laguna, however it is comfortable enough to enjoy a long, intimate dinner.
Casa Del Camino’s rooftop lounge is a favorite amongst locals and visitors alike. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the lounge is equipped with a small bites plus a lunch menu. The allure is obvious – a glass of sangria while watching the sun set, equipped with great company. The type of romantic date that is ideal for your bestie or your man.
However you choose to do your La Casa Del Camino stay, the technicolor sunsets and thick breeze that only the coastline can promise ensures it will be unforgettable. Valentine’s Day is for lovers, that’s why you’ve got your girls.
