The Inn at Moonlight Beach is a breathtaking Cinderella story, where one renovation led to an award-winning getaway

There is no better way to recharge than an escape to Encinitas, and Shangwen and Mike Kennedy know that best of all. Shangwen, an urban architect with a Harvard background, has planned communities in China and Boston but finds fulfillment in the Inn at Moonlight Beach, where the wellness of visitors comes first and foremost. 

Bed and Breakfast Break

This boutique bed and breakfast is equipped with standout amenities. Fresh ingredients from the biodynamic garden are used in the kitchen to providing nourishing meals to guests. Each of the five rooms comes with at least one bed, incredible air filtration, and attention to every detail—from the ultra-purified water to the circadian lighting that aligns with our natural sleep patterns.

Shangwen has designed the inn to foster a sense of healthy community in visitors and to urge guests to get in touch with their globalized community responsibility, all within reach of outstanding San Diego real estate. The couple provides a destination guide on their website so that visitors won’t have to miss a moment of fun during their stay along the Pacific.

The Perfect Package 

At the Inn at Moonlight Beach, it’s apparent that special care has gone into crafting an incredible experience that will rejuvenate and restore your health and wellness. Connect with yourself and your surroundings with included juice cleanses, sage clearings, and more. 

With several different options and packages for purchase, the possibilities are nearly endless. For an escape for two, try the Romantic Getaway, which is designed with couples in mind. Be welcomed into your suite with champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and flowers and bubbles ready for baths. The Simply Wellness Package includes hour-long yoga and massage sessions, plus a special $25 lunch certificate at any of the inn’s partnering restaurants. 

For larger retreats, consider renting the entire bed and breakfast. Your special events, like team-building work conferences, can be adapted to fit your specific needs. With extras like s’mores ingredients to use in the fire pit and a smudge stick-making workshop, celebrate togetherness in good spirits. 

Awarding Work 

Supporting healthy communities is the founding principle of the Inn at Moonlight Beach, which makes it the perfect candidate for the WELL Building Certification. Buildings that support fine air quality free of pollutants and limited light pollution--as well as endorse the physical movement, peace of mind, and nourishment of the body and soul--are suitable candidates for this prestigious qualification that ultimately benefits the surrounding community.
The Inn at Moonlight Beach is the first hospitality-based building to undergo this certification process, and this pilot mission could be a game-changer for the way we view our relaxation destinations. Next time you take a vacation, consider both your environmental impact as well as your responsibility to your own personal rejuvenation, and you’ll be yearning for the overwhelming peace of the Inn at Moonlight Beach.
