The Observatory at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay

Overlooking the grand vistas of Northern California’s coastline, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay is pleased to announce the opening of two brand-new meeting spaces – Pescadero and Moss Beach – in addition to the complete renovation of its existing event facilities. The combined expansion and renovation brings the iconic luxury resort’s total meeting spaces to 35,000 square feet, the most of any luxury Bay Area resort. Boasting 20 indoor and outdoor venues, along with world-class service, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay is the ultimate destination for events of all types and sizes – from an intimate C-Suite retreat for 10 executives to an elaborate wedding of 400 guests.

The new Pescadero room is 1,691 square feet of board-room style space and can accommodate 30-210 guests, while the Moss Beach venue, located on the second level, is 675 square feet with a capacity of 24-50 guests. Other notable spaces in the resort include The Observatory, occupying 900 square feet and boasting breathtaking ocean views, as well as the 1,100 square-foot Miramontes Room with an adjacent oceanfront terrace for a unique indoor/outdoor gathering of 30-100 guests.

While each space is unique, a sophisticated coastal aesthetic permeates throughout all the resort’s meeting and event venues. The new design brings the resort’s picturesque natural surroundings indoors, featuring plush carpeting inspired by the shades of the ocean, setting suns, and contours of marine plant life. Striking gilded chandeliers illuminate wall coverings in hues of silver and gray, which are adorned with art deco sconces enhanced with ornamentation reminiscent of earth elements like quartz and marble. Paintings and artwork are modern interpretations of oceanic life, natural beaches, and the rugged coast, mirroring the resort’s locale.

Complete with an award-winning Ritz-Carlton Spa, two championship golf courses, and endless activities in the surrounding Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz Mountain areas, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay provides an unparalleled setting and space for meetings and events in the Bay Area. Additionally, event planners have access to a dedicated Conference Concierge who will help create and facilitate special events through thoughtful execution.
