We arrived to a friendly welcome in the lovely lobby area of the property. The Inn has multiple small/mid-sized buildings which make up the property with a lovely courtyard in the middle complete with a fire pit and washrooms. This mix of accommodations is ideal for all types of travellers. We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a small... More

This is a unique property that is a combination of an upscale hotel with the charm and personality of a great bed and breakfast! Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at Pantai. Our daughters shared an updated one bedroom villa. The villa had a fireplace, kitchenette, table, wonderful bathroom and a balcony that made you want... More

From the moment we walked through the doors, we have been so impressed. The staff is so friendly and accommodating and focused on making our stay incredible. The Pantai gets customer service. They could teach others a thing or two. And they are sincere in their approach. The grounds and rooms are immaculate and the atmosphere is so chill. We... More

Small hotel that is over the top in all categories! The staff was extremely gracious and welcoming. The location is perfect with fantastic views of the ocean and close to lots of shops and restaurants. The free breakfast was probably the best I have ever had anywhere. It is truly a delight to stay at this hotel.

My wife booked here instead of our normal destination of Hilton Torrey Pines. We loved the Bali-esque furnishings. We were treated like family since we arrived and received the best personal concierge service from Alfred. He got Enterprise to deliver our rental right to our room and gave us the best recommendations to Herringbone and Mary's English Cafe. He also... More

My wife and I stayed at Pantai Inn during our anniversary trip. We stayed several very nice places over the course of our 2 week trip, but Pantai Inn was our favorite. We had initially planned to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 4. Most of our shopping, dining and ocean-side exploring was within walking distance. We had a... More

Dear Bob M, We are definitely tucked away in the La Jolla coast neighborhood, and some might say we are hard to find, but after a stay at the Pantai everyone agrees that our location is a majestic addition to the La Jolla Cove coast. You were given our standard treatment and we’re glad you felt like royalty. Our Balinese... More

We sat in our room and watched whales feeding just off shore. We were lulled with the soothing sound of surf at night. We strolled along the cove on either side of the Inn watching the body surfers. Sea lions and pelicans come ashore on the rocks right by the sidewalk. La Jolla village is literally a set of steps... More
