“It’s an honor to have The Ranch at Laguna Beach be the first official California hotel partner for Rivian and to elevate our guest experience with such an impactful, innovative brand,” said Kurt Bjorkman, chief operating officer of The Ranch at Laguna Beach. “Our partnership with Rivian allows us to provide our guests with even more opportunities for immersion into the iconic destination of Laguna Beach, while continuing our unwavering commitment to sustainability in all that we do.”

The Rivian house vehicles at The Ranch at Laguna Beach will be wrapped in artwork by Laguna Beach-based, world-class artist Troy Lee, founder of industry-leading action sports apparel and custom paint company Troy Lee Designs. From his father creating signage for the resort to his family living on the property during his childhood, Lee’s deep history with The Ranch at Laguna Beach also led him to design the new logo for the property in July 2022. Lee’s admiration for The Ranch at Laguna Beach and the destination will be reflected in his art for the Rivian house vehicles.

Guests of The Ranch at Laguna Beach will be able to book one of the Rivian house vehicles though the concierge team to enjoy on their own. The R1T vehicles will feature both bike and stand-up paddleboard racks, giving guests the ability to explore Laguna Beach and nearby towns with ease. The Gear Tunnel of the R1T or front trunk of the R1S acts as an ideal storage space for golf bags, primed for a day at The Ranch at Laguna Beach nine-hole at the GEO Certified® golf course. Additionally, the Rivian house vehicles will provide service as a shuttle for resort guests to experience off property adventures such as surfing, hiking and mountain biking, as well as the resort’s Cultural Experiences – Birds of Prey, The Painter, and The Shaper – taking guests into the workshops of celebrated community members, showcasing Laguna Beach’s iconic culture elements of surfing, plein air painting and bird watching.
