VEA Newport Beach

Lyon Living & Eagle Four Partners

The VEA Newport Beach, formerly the Newport Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, underwent an exquisite reimagination inside and out.

The hotel’s transformation included new luxury guest rooms and suites inspired by the coastal setting, restaurant and bar concepts; a 14,000 sf spa with 14 treatment rooms and dedicated saltwater pool; high-performance fitness center and yoga studio; 60,000 sf indoor and outdoor event space with an innovative rectangular large pool experience and event lawn with artificial turf. The front of the hotel was redesigned with a “porte cochere” entry with “pier-inspired” architectural element and massive circular waterfall.

A temporary access road was designed by Fuscoe to connect to the rear of the hotel from Santa Barbara Avenue, solely for construction, loading, and demolition activities. Fuscoe designed and redirected the drainage and storm drain infrastructure for the new pool and event lawn, incorporating biofiltration methodology ensuring proper and effective water quality treatment.
