If this sounds exactly what you’ve yearned for in your next vacation, the question is, “Where can I go to experience a destination, and an accommodation, at a deeper and stress-free level? Auric Road is a collection of petite resorts that are located in some of the best back-to-nature locations in western America. The Auric Road portfolio includes Lone Mountain Ranch in Big Sky, Montana, Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs, California, Laguna Beach hotspot, Hotel Joaquin and soon to open, Rex Ranch in Tucson, Arizona.

Determined to create a home away from home for guests, each property was designed with couples and different personality types in mind while offering a unique escape from day-to-day reality with TV-free suites and carefully curated amenities/activities to complement guest’s stay.

Since inception, Auric Road’s petite hotels has redefined hospitality, wellness, and leisure by creating the ultimate vacationer’s dream. No stranger to the highly competitive hotel industry, Makarechian developed the concept of petite resorts with intimacy, size, and quiet meditative spirit of each space in mind. Paul Makarechian and his team are leading an untapped market to offer his creative clientele an authentic, soulful experience that is truly transformative.

Hotel Joaquin

Hotel Joaquin, located in Laguna Beach, is a refuge for the world traveler who revels in living off the beaten path, the adventurers who embrace the beauty of nature, and the lovers of life who appreciate the finest attention to detail.


Korakia (Greek for “crow”) is crafted into a Mediterranean-style resort. The resort, now housed in two lovingly restored historic villas, rests on 1.5 lush acres, consisting of bungalows, guesthouses, gardens, and pools in scenic Palm Springs.

Lone Mountain Ranch

While Lone Mountain Ranch has been giving travelers the true experience of Yellowstone Country for over 100 years. Just 18 miles beyond the northwest border of the park, tucked between the Montana Rockies, are stunning rivers and grasslands. Only 40 minutes from the Bozeman Airport, this is where to find and enjoy the good things in life.

With wellness and relaxation in mind, Makarechian wanted to create resorts that focus on a one-of-a-kind and intimate experience. Guests are welcomed on a first name basis and throughout the stay, ultra-personal service and island-life authenticity are blended seamlessly.
