Luxurious Locales: Montage Hotels & Resorts and Pendry Hotels & Resorts

Grand resorts throughout North America offer distinctive stays in iconic settings

For more than 20 years, Montage Hotels & Resorts has been associated with premium hospitality, offering destination-defining experiences and exquisite retreats that always live up to the hype. Together with Pendry Hotels & Resorts, which is owned by Montage International, the two offer breathtaking hotels in an array of locations in which to relax, unwind, and live it up in luxury.

Since its debut, Montage International has grown as a leading luxury hospitality brand, adding carefully selected locations to its growing portfolio that complement its ethos of providing superior service and quality. With the addition of Pendry Hotels & Resorts in 2017, sophisticated travelers gained even more opportunities to explore incredible locations in North America with stays in contemporary, design-minded hotels that reflected the cities and communities they call home.

These stunning locations include Montage Laguna Beach, which celebrated its 20-year anniversary last year — a historic milestone for the brand’s original hotel. After two decades of service, the blufftop resort, nestled in the artist colony of Laguna Beach, remains a dreamy destination for beach enthusiasts, art lovers, and wellness wanderers alike. Slip down to the sand through Treasure Island Park, which neighbors the resort, or relax in a cabana by the artsy Mosaic Pool.

Though comparatively smaller than New York, Chicago holds its own as a big city rife with places to explore. Pendry Chicago is perfect for those looking to get out and view the Windy City’s architecture, dine at a café by the river, or visit its parks and countless museums. But the hotel is exciting in and of itself, with a French-inspired brasserie, 24th-floor terrace with craft cocktails overlooking the Chicago skyline, elevated fitness center, and chic urban aesthetic.

In the South, family and tradition always take center stage, and the same can be said for stays at Montage Palmetto Bluff. Nestled along the May River in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, it is the perfect place for reconnecting with loved ones. Feel right at home as you unwind in a distinctly Southern way: “porching” with a glass of sweet tea. Or, relax with quality wellness classes, fish in the local freshwater ponds, kayak with dolphins, or head out into nature on a bike, winding along miles of trails shaded by towering trees draped in Spanish moss.

The line between indoor and outdoor spaces blurs at Montage Los Cabos, the company’s first international resort. Shimmering coastal views will make you feel as if you’ve been dropped into paradise while the sandy shore and sparkling Pacific Ocean beyond is the ideal play place for anyone looking to snorkel, surf, kayak, eFoil, scuba dive, or whale watch. Spa treatments, morning yoga, and stress relief workshops present ample opportunity to indulge, and the cuisine and spirits of Mexico are highlighted during cooking classes, tequila tastings, and cocktail making.

An exquisite new destination in rural New Jersey, Pendry Natirar is a historic escape slated to open its doors in late summer. Hundreds of acres of rolling hills and meadows surround the expansive resort, which will put a focus on sustainability and reconnecting with the natural world. In the lush wilderness just beyond the Tudor mansion, you can hike, bike or even go fly-fishing. At the resort, help harvest the community garden and take a cooking class for a timeless experience.

Achieving a Forbes Five-Star rating this year was well earned for Montage Big Sky, which opened in 2021 in the Rocky Mountains. A premier destination for winter sports, the lodge enjoys pristine views from its location in the valley and ski-in, ski-out access to Big Sky Resort. After a day on the slopes enjoying the pristine landscapes that surround the timber-and-stone resort, pamper yourself with restorative sessions at Spa Montage, an 11,000-square-foot space offering alpine-inspired facials, massages, and body treatments.

Hollywood has long been about glitz and glamour. Tucked into the Sunset Strip, Pendry West Hollywood aligns itself perfectly, with sleek furnishings and pastel tones that calm guests in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Unique to this space is its commitment to live entertainment, further establishing this as a destination unto itself in a global entertainment hub. Built on land that formerly harbored the House of Blues, Pendry pays homage with its own music venue and frequent performances, while also being conveniently located near some of the region’s most popular music clubs.
