Hot Hotel Interior -Casa Camino Laguna Beach

I used to wind surf in my twenties, so I'm not a stranger to the board, but the 10 Surf Theme Suites at the Casa Camino Hotel in Laguna Beach (CA) are of course not about the wind, they're about the wave and Surfboard Decor. The redo of the rooms in the 80 year old Spanish Revival landmark hotel was a collaboration between iconic surf brands such as Billabong and local designers.

Surf Suite at Casa Camino in Laguna Beach CA
Described as sleek contemporary, the Billabong Suite 206 feels nostalgic to me. I hear the Beach Boys! The three-dimensional art piece above the bed tells the history of the company.

The bathroom is ultra masculine.

And part of the art piece, the Billabong logo cut into reclaimed wood.

Suite 306 of Casa Camino is Billabong Womens, with a much softer look.

Rip Curl Suite 314 has the sea theme in cold blue tones. And true, the water in Southern California is cold! To the left you can see the end of a giant underwater photo mural, and on the wall, Rip Curl surfboards.

The carpet is supposed to mimic the texture of the ocean floor with its green "seaweed-swirls".

And I love the photo boxes. Art and storage in one -great idea! Go to Casa Camino Surf Project to see all suites, meet the designers and learn about the materials used.

Loui -It's purely for decor inspiration and ideas, not really about promoting the hotel. Hope you still enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!

OMG - My guys would feel so at home in any one of those rooms they would never want to leave - especially if the rooms overlooked some great surf! The use of art work in each of the rooms is greatly inspiring - how nice to not have that "hotel room" feel.

We live close by and snuck a peak in a room when we ate at the open air roof top restaurant at the hotel. They are very cool. The ROOFTOP is pretty spectacular with 360 degree views of Laguna and the Pacific Ocean!

The use of the surf boards as wall art is so unexpected, I love it! ~Lili
