Pantai Inn Completes Extensive Renovation


Long celebrated for its stunning oceanfront location and views, the Pantai Inn, located in the picturesque town of La Jolla, California, has just completed an extensive renovation and redesign.

After a multi-year and multi-million dollar floor to ceiling renovation, each of the Inn’s 30 suites and cottages have been upgraded with new furniture, design elements and soft goods.  Many of the suites now feature fireplaces and custom stone and tile showers.  Most of the accommodations include a full-size kitchen or kitchenette, and all feature high definition flat screen televisions and media hubs.

The collection of buildings that make up the one-acre property date from turn-of-the-last-century classic California shingled cottages to linear Art Deco structures.  Each one has been restored from top to bottom and the infrastructure throughout the property has also been thoroughly updated.

Accommodations range from commodious three-bedroom suites to one and two-bedroom cottages to ocean view studios.  Each is unique in its décor, thanks to custom, hand-carved furniture and original artwork from Bali and Indonesia.  Artistic upgrades have been added throughout the public spaces, including Balinese statues and numerous water features that contribute to the ‘peaceful oasis’ ambiance of the Pantai Inn.

Located in the heart of the property is an expansive courtyard surrounded by lush greenery where guests are invited to enjoy complimentary breakfast and take in the stunning view of La Jolla coastline.  From here you can hear the waves crashing on the shoreline and take in spectacular sunsets over the Pacific Ocean.  The natural world is at the doorstep of the Inn and immediately offshore is a State Marine Sanctuary.  The waters are rich with sea life, including lobster, sea stars, abalone, and the colorful California state fish, the Garibaldi.  All types of shorebirds populate the shoreline.  The La Jolla tide pools are a short walk away, and harbor seals and sea lions congregate on the rocky outcroppings across from the Pantai Inn.

“It’s a place where people can relax and enjoy the ambiance of a calming Balinese-inspired environment.  The hand-carved furniture, the exquisite artwork, the fine linens and fireplaces – they all help to create a comfort zone,” explains co-owner Laurnie Durisoe. “After working so hard to restore the legacy that was our grandfather’s, it’s been a chance to create something that is now a real jewel for La Jolla.  We’ve taken these historic buildings and lovingly renovated them so they really shine.  The joy for us is to see that our guests feel the same way we do about the results.  They are so amazed – it’s so satisfying and that’s our reward.”
