ORANGE COUNTY, CALIF. (January 12, 2023) – Twenty years ago, Montage Hotels & Resorts opened its doors to its flagship resort, Montage Laguna Beach, set along 30 oceanfront acres on the iconic coast of Southern California. Throughout the past two decades, Montage Hotels & Resorts has become known for its comfortable luxury, exceptional, personalized service and the unique sense of spirit and place of its seven distinctive properties, all in coveted locations across North America and with more growth on the horizon.
This year, Montage Hotels & Resorts will honor its two decades of Montage memories with an invitation for guests and locals to enjoy a signature curation of brand partnerships and special anniversary programming.
“We are incredibly proud and appreciative to be celebrating 20 years of Montage Hotels & Resorts,” said Alan J. Fuerstman, founder, chairman, and CEO of Montage International. “From the day we opened Montage Laguna Beach on its beautiful coastal bluff home in 2003, we have remained steadfast in our vision of creating new and exceptional luxury experiences with a high level of gracious and intuitive service in remarkable destinations. In the year to come, we look forward to recognizing this anniversary milestone with our global family of guests and residents, our local communities, and our valued associates.”
Montage Hotels & Resorts will extend exclusive offerings and experiences available at all Montage properties throughout 2023 including:
