Located in downtown La Jolla, Pantai Inn was everything I could have hoped for when it comes to a bungalow seaside hotel. The Pantai community is like a Balinese-inspired haven with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, cascading waterfalls, outdoor and indoor fireplaces, and the friendliest staff on Earth. Each time we passed by, the staff always addressed Jered and I by name and made sure we had everything we needed. It didn’t just stop there, the hotel chef will even accommodate dietary needs if you decide to enjoy their complimentary breakfast.
Pantai Inn is unique, because it doesn’t feel like a hotel. Instead, they have beautiful suites and cottages with plenty of room. We stayed in a one bedroom with a partial ocean view and could have easily had room for 2 more people. It had a kitchen, living room, dining room, TVs, internet and a murphy bed in addition to the private bedroom.
Everything about Pantai was beautiful and peaceful. We loved that the Inn was small and quaint, making it great for families or a romantic getaway. The ocean walk is right by the hotel and a short walk to shopping, great restaurants, and my favorite…the seals and sea lions. Pantai is a hidden gem and I totally recommend it if you’re headed to La Jolla!
