The Best Place for Summer Travel! La Jolla’s Pantai Inn: The Ultimate Family Destination! Enchanting Seaside Inn Embodies the Perfect Combination of Luxury and Convenience to Create the Ideal Family Destination This Summer

Pantai Exterior & Sign

Long celebrated for its stunning oceanfront location and views, Pantai Inn is perfectly positioned to be the ideal family destination in the San Diego area, hot on the heels of an extensive renovation and redesign.

While the Inn boasts a wide range of accommodations, what makes it so advantageous to families is its selection of commodious three-bedroom and two-bedroom suites as well as cottages, all with kitchens, which are well equipped to house families. The suites range from casual to deluxe, with even the more casual options providing the welcoming attitude and tropical atmosphere that the Inn is known for.

Coastal views and beautiful décor is only part of the Inn’s charm. It is centrally located to many of the area’s family and kid-friendly attractions, including the world-famous San Diego Zoo & Safari ParkBalboa Park (including a plethora of museums, performing arts venues, lovely gardens and more), and popular family attractions like Legoland are just a short drive away.  For entertainment of the natural variety, the Inn is a short walk from La Jolla’s coastal Children’s Pool, tide pools and beaches, and is situated across from the rocky outcropping that is a favorite sunbathing spot of sea lions and harbor seals. There is no shortage of oceanfront activities alongside La Jolla’s stunning coastline including kayaking, stand up paddling, snorkeling, sailing and biking.

My family had the opportunity to visit Pantai Inn for a couple of nights and we had an amazing time! We stayed in a 3 bedroom Suite and it was the best Summer vacation ever! I only wish we could have stayed longer! The view from our place was simply amazing and although I am not usually one to be up at sunrise…I was up at sunrise since the beach was so close by with an amazing view and tons of Sea Lions! I also have to point out that the Staff is the best! They made my family feel at home and I loved that Tea and Coffee are available all day and all the little touches such as chocolate on our pillows at the end of the day…well, I really could go on and on….

IMG_6716

The rooms were beautiful and my husband and I loved the whole Bali theme! The Original Balinese art and design really makes this place unique!

IMG_6565    IMG_6566  IMG_6568

I just loved the Kitchen! It truly was fully stocked!

IMG_6579  IMG_6574

I have to admit spending time on the balcony was a favorite thing for me! I could see and hear the ocean from that spot and I loved having my breakfast there! By the way, breakfast is complimentary there and the food is quite impressive! I loved the Baked Egg Cups and there were two options to choose from! My favorite was the Mediterranean-Sun Dried Tomato with Feta! Yum! The Chef also makes a really delicious Strawberry Cobbler Muffin! But, honestly, the breakfast is something to write home about! 

IMG_6777       IMG_6901

I have to admit that my teenage son wasn’t excited about this trip before we arrived but he had a great time! The room accommodations, the view and the customer service truly made this a great vacation! What really impressed me was how we had all the comforts of home yet we felt like we were so far away from home. It truly was a unique experience without leaving Southern California! 

IMG_6711      IMG_6702

And, the view was simply amazing! 

IMG_6570

And..walking distance to an amazing beach….I was absolutely thrilled! 

IMG_6896     IMG_6627   IMG_6694

Hands down visiting the Pantai Inn and La Jolla this Summer was the best time my family had together this Summer! 

There’s still time to visit! Summer isn’t over yet!

Summer time fun at LEGOLAND!

IMG_6812        IMG_6800    IMG_6780

Looking for a fun place to take the whole family this Summer? LEGOLAND is the place to go! My husband, 13-year-old son and I recently visited there and had a blast! I love that there is so much creativity there and I really enjoy seeing so many things made out of legos! When my son was younger, legos were a big hit and even though he is now a teenager…legos are still a cool thing! Speaking of cool things…the LEGOLAND water parks are where we spent most of our day! My son and husband enjoyed the Build-A-Raft River and this was our first time at the CHIMA WATER PARK. The Lion Temple Wave Pool was a real big hit!

IMG_6781   IMG_6792    IMG_6798

They also have a great deal right now! You can add the Water Park and 2nd day for $5! The only thing is that you have to book +&days in advance. Sounds like a great deal to me!

We also had a visit thru the Sea Life Aquarium and recommend this one for all ages! It actually is one of my favorite Aquariums to visit! They have really cool Jelly Fish!

We didn’t visit the Legoland Hotel on this trip but you may remember that I once featured the fun time we had there four years ago for my son’s birthday. If you are wanting to celebrate a child’s birthday..this really is a fun place to stay!

We still have a few weeks of Summer left so check out Legoland this Summer! Find out more here!

Don’t forget to check out all the really cool buildings made out of Legos!

Penguin Chick to Debut on Exhibit at the Aquarium Of The Pacific The chick will leave its nursery to join its parents and siblings in the Aquarium’s June Keyes Penguin Habitat on August 8, 2017

The Aquarium of the Pacific’s Magellanic Penguin chick hatched in May will make its public debut and join its parents, siblings, and other birds in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat on August 8. The public can see the chick starting when the Aquarium opens that morning at 9:00 a.m.

 

The chick was born to parents Roxy and Floyd. Roxy, the penguin chick’s mother, came to the Aquarium from Brazil. She was rescued and deemed non-releasable to the wild. She and Floyd are also parents to Skipper, Lily, Heidi, and Anderson. Magellanic Penguin chicks are hatched with a downy layer of plumage that is not watertight. The Aquarium’s penguin chick was taken after about twenty-one days to a behind-the-scenes nursery, where it will remain until its down is replaced by watertight juvenile feathers, a process called fledging. During its time in the nursery, the chick is learning to swim and to take hand-fed, whole fish.

 

In celebration of the baby bird, the Aquarium is offering the opportunity to adopt the chick through its Adopt an Animal program. Those adopting a penguin chick at the $100 level or higher before September 30, 2017, will have a chance to go behind the scenes for a feeding and training session with the penguins.

 

Magellanic Penguins are a temperate species native to the coasts of Argentina and Chile in South America. It takes between thirty-eight to forty-three days of incubation before a Magellanic Penguin egg will hatch. The parents take turns incubating the eggs and feeding the chicks after they hatch.

 

WHEN:            On exhibit starting Tuesday, August 8, 2017 – Aquarium opens to public at 9:00 a.m. See all the coverage with the hashtag #AOPpenguins.

 

WHERE:         Aquarium of the Pacific, 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802

 

AQUARIUM:   The nonprofit Aquarium of the Pacific is a community gathering place where diverse cultures and the arts are celebrated and where important topics facing our planet are explored by scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders in search of sustainable solutions. The Aquarium is dedicated to conserving and building nature and nature’s services by building the interactions between and among peoples. Home to more than 11,000 animals, Aquarium exhibits include the new FROGS: Dazzling and DisappearingOur Water Future, and archerfish exhibits.
