Ranked as the top hotel in La Jolla by TripAdvisor’s readers, Pantai Inn’s distinct guest accommodations blend a unique Balinese-inspired decor with luxurious comforts and contemporary conveniences. The relaxing oceanfront retreat offers lush gardens, soothing water features and an inviting courtyard and firepit to stimulate the senses. The Pantai experience is further complemented by the warmth and authenticity of the Inn’s extraordinary guest service.

Upon entering the Pantai grounds, guests are swept away by the beauty of the lush, manicured gardens and authentic Balinese statues, offering a sense of tranquility in the heart of La Jolla.
