Reviewed 3 January 2012

Situated on the coast of gorgeous La Jolla, California is this new, boutique Bali-themed hotel. I had the pleasure of staying there last month and wish my visit were longer! Absolutely gorgeous surroundings and an impeccable property, along with guest services which redefine service, made for an incredible experience.
From the moment you arrive, you know you are at a special place: there is no "front desk," as the friendly staff literally come to you while you sit comfortably in the reception area. No detail has been overlooked. From the water features and fountains, to the multiple flat screen TVs and hammered copper sinks, this is a destination not to be missed! What the owners have done here is nothing short of a miracle. I have traveled around the world several times and I have yet to be embraced as warmly and comfortably as I was at the Pantai Inn.

Room Tip: This is a brand new property. I recommend any room - all are very close to the ocean and most if not...

In most hotels, you have to plan transportation to good area restaurants or eat in the lobby cafe, you have to do the same if you want to shop, it takes effort to get to where you can walk along a beach or surf or ride a bicycle or just sit in front of your room and watch the ocean...and even then, when you do climb into bed or just go inside the room, you sacrificed a cramped room and a crummy bed to get them. Not so with Pantai, you can relax and enjoy EVERYTHING! Really comfortable beds, a giant shower head, roomy kitchen, killer LCD TVs and comfortable furnishings. And then, a block away is the Rodeo Drive of San Diego, shops, multiple five star restaurants, art galleries, museums and you're right on La Jolla Cove, a natural underwater park. There's a problem, though. Once you check in, you're not going to want to leave...

I have been in La Jolla for a month and a half on business staying at an extended stay a bit out of town. My girlfriend came in to visit and I wanted to have a perfect romantic week. Pantai Inn was all I could have possibly asked for. I wish I could have taken more pictures. Our four post bed with linen tie-up curtains were so romantic and the linens were lush and so comfortable. The TVs in both the bed room and living room were tremendous HD flat screens and best of all SO easy to use. We wanted for nothing and were given all the attention we desired. If I make it back to La Jolla I have no question in my mind where I'll be staying.

The Pantai Inn in La Jolla just opened and I was one of its first guests. The hotel gives the best of both worlds--you have the impression of living in a modern, spacious cottage or cabana and yet, you have all the amenities of a four star hotel. The staff is young and dynamic and know how to cater to your every need. The property is beautiful and it is right along the beach. The staff asks you personally what you would like for breakfast each morning. I imagine it will be hard to book rooms here once it becomes well-known.
