The Meritage Collection, a portfolio of luxury and lifestyle hotels and resorts throughout California and Hawaii, in collaboration with Black Tomato, the luxury travel experts introduce The Sunshine Series,
a new video series with corresponding bookable itineraries that capture the essence of the brand’s six properties within its sun-kissed destinations. The Collection consists of The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley, California, Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, California, Paséa Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, California, Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California, Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa in California, and Ko’a Kea Hotel & Resort on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
Steve Arnold, chief operating officer, Pacific Hospitality Group – parent company to Meritage Collection, says: “Our properties blend iconic, one-of-a-kind places with locally-inspired experiences, so our partnership with Black Tomato, an award-winning company known for its creative approach to experiential travel and digital content, was a natural fit. We are excited to offer new and returning guests a glimpse of what our resorts have to offer through The Sunshine Series videos.”
From the luscious Garden Isle of Kauai to the beautiful coastline of Santa Barbara, each of the six videos focuses on a different Meritage Collection property and immerses viewers into the stunning natural beauty and local spirit of the destinations. Celebrated locals, such as Napa Valley Restauranteur and Chef Cindy Pawlcyn, help to curate the videos and discuss how the destination serves as an inspiration to both residents and visitors alike.
Black Tomato co-founder Tom Marchant says: “I’ve always been enchanted by California and Hawaii’s sun-kissed and laid-back approach to life, and to me, the Meritage Collection portfolio of hotels effortlessly capture the natural beauty and local charm of each area. At Black Tomato we believe our clients’ travel experiences should be influenced by the local spirit of the destinations they visit. And with this in mind, we’re thrilled to be partnering with The Meritage Collection as we’re able to bring the coastlines of California and surf of Kauai to life through beautifully shot videos and local stories that will inspire our audience to travel and experience these iconic places for themselves.”
