Now from $633 per night

Monarch Beach is one of the best all-inclusive resorts in the USA that excels in fitness offerings and luxury surroundings. From surfing to golf boarding, this modern seaside resort encourages guests to get outside and enjoy the Southern California lifestyle. However, when you want to take a break from doing laps around the pool or the TSX machine, jump on the resort’s beach tram that will whisk you through the golf links to the exclusive Oceanfront Monarch Bay Beach Club – where umbrellas, beach chairs, and towels are waiting – and when you’re suitably tanned, enjoy lunch or dinner at the beachside restaurant.

You’ll be welcomed by your host and escorted to your beautiful private air-conditioned thatched cottage – complete with hammocks and loungers on your private deck – or you could request a bungalow with a four-poster bed and outdoor copper bathtub if you really want to impress.
