Monarch Beach Resort Moments Magazine Issue 6 - Page 26

Devoted to SERVICE Take a peek behind the scenes with employees who have been a part of the Monarch Beach Resort family since the beginning. BY ASHLEY PROBST M onarch Beach Resort is still a relatively new property, as its second anniversary was celebrated on June 1. How far has the resort come, exactly? Before the current accom- modations, the property was known as The St. Regis Monarch Beach, which opened for business in the summer of 2001. Later, in 2015, the hotel underwent a $40 million renovation so as to better refl ect the property’s close proximity to the Pacifi c. This new iteration is the Monarch Beach Resort that is known and loved today: boasting bursts of ocean-inspired colors and décor, as well as the fi rst California location for a Miraval Life in Balance Spa. Moments sat down with select resort employees who have worked on the property since it was The St. Regis Monarch Beach, and even helped with the transition to become Monarch Beach Resort. These hardworking individuals love what they do for work almost as much as they love where they work, and it’s easy to see why they’ve decided to stick around. 26 MONARCHBEACHRESORT.COM
