National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World

The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, a prestigious collection of lodges spanning 30 countries and 6 continents. Like The Ranch at Laguna Beach, these properties were handpicked by National Geographic for their exceptional guest experience and their strong commitment to sustainable practices. We each embody the values of National Geographic: authenticity, enrichment, and a dedication to preserving our planet’s natural and cultural heritage.

Every lodge in the collection, including The Ranch at Laguna Beach, was thoroughly vetted by a National Geographic sustainable tourism expert who spent time at each property, evaluated operations, and met with everyone from the general manager to the kitchen staff to ensure we met their high standards. The review included a thorough vetting based on the pillars of sustainable tourism: protection of natural heritage, protection of cultural heritage, support for local communities, and environmentally friendly practices.

We all strive to connect guests with our destinations in a meaningful way, offering intimate and personal encounters with parts of the world not many get to know—and the chance to slow down and truly discover them.
