FLEX Event Planning™

Given these uncertain times, we understand how hard it is for event planners to plan their special events. Currently, we are in the State of California’s Purple Tier which only allows gathering for religious events.  With current trends, soon Orange County will move to the Red Tier which expands the ability to host private events.  We are recommending our clients book their space now with our FLEX Event Planning program.

Our Flex Event Planning Program offers:

  • Flexibility to change your 2021 date without any charges or penalties. Based on availability.
  • Ability to cancel your event or wedding up to 30 days before your date.
  • Power to adjust your guest count up to 30 days before the event.

*Book or inquire by July 15, 2021, to take advantage of this Flex Planning Program for your 2021 event.

When it comes to events hosted at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort, everything is possible. Every event is tailored and catered to your needs. Meeting and event planners seeking to provide their guests with that “wow-factor” will be impressed by our 50,000 square feet of event space to accommodate meetings, shows, or other special occasions, gatherings.

The Perfect Venue Exists

As Newport Beach’s iconic event and festival destination, Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina offers a wealth of offerings for events, festivals, and celebrations. We can host events ranging from a grand tented affair with a dramatic waterfront backdrop to intimate team-building events enjoyed via water sports on the bay, luxe Hamptons-style beach events under the stars, and casual toes-in-the-sand barbeques.
