Magical moments at the hip hideaway in Santa Monica...
The perfect little hideaway in Santa Monica, Shutters on the Beach offers a true beach experience with a setting that’s reminiscent of a hip country club, down to its décor. It’s a place with an ideal mix of that Deco glamour, old world coziness and modern LA laissez-faire, and it’s a place with a piece of quiet that you don’t find in many places. Days are meant to spent unwinding in Santa Monica, while afternoons at Shutters calls for cordials in the lobby, accompanied by jazz and chef-prepared Hors d'Oeuvres.
With 186 guest rooms and 12 suites, the accommodations encompass the true essence of the beach, both in style and in space. The guest rooms embody laid-back luxury at its best: each comes with an in-room reading library, decorative objects with a worldly, residential feel and only the finest in textiles and furnishings, many of which are configured to yield views of the coastline and Pacific Ocean with sliding shuttered doors open to a balcony and balmy ocean breeze. It’s ht perfect setting for a sunrise breakfast and cocktails at sunset.
ONE Spa may be small in size, but the intimate experience is as grand as it is indulgent. With unparalleled organic body treatments by red flower and facials by Omorovicza, refined serenity awaits you… The Moroccan Hammam Ritual or the Turkish Salt Scrub are a sure promise to sweep you off your feet. Facial-fanatics: prepare to have one of the best facials you’ll ever have in the world!
Perched above the beach, the fine-dining restaurant 1 Pico carries a casual vibe and is one address you’ll never forget. With a seasonal market menu featuring only the freshest, both the food and the service is nothing short of impeccable… The direct views of the beach is only the icing on the cake — and speaking of cake, the Coconut Cake is an absolute must! Coast Beach Café and Bar takes full advantage of its oceanfront location and offers contemporary touches such as an open kitchen for curious eyes, a self-heating floor to provide warmth on those cooler evenings and two plasma screens above the long inviting bar and a lively communal table. The ever-changing menu features a selection of sophisticated comfort food. A seat in The Living Room is one of the most sought-after spots in Los Angeles for a cocktail at sunset.
Just outside, the beach is your playground. Choose to do a lot or nothing at all: rent a beach cruiser to bike the Malibu to Manhattan Beach path, play paddle tennis & volleyball, or even take part in yoga on the sand. For those looking to do nothing at all: lounge poolside in a cabana or on a comfy chaise lounge. Head down the beach to the famous pier, go shopping in the neighboring fashionable districts, explore the art galleries and have a taste of the fine restaurants. Famed Montana Ave, Third Street Promenade, Abbott Kinney, Main Street, Venice Beach and the Malibu Beaches are all within 20 minutes. The celebrated world of Los Angeles sits just beyond with everything to do from studio tours to high-end shopping, La Brea Tar Pits, the world famous Getty Museum, the Kodak Theater or Disney Hall.
NEED-TO-NOTE: Casa Del Mar is the contemporary sister property nearby that’s home to the LA outpost of Catch. The penthouse suites and the 2-, 3-bedroom suites are stellar! Very befitting for couples traveling together or a magical girls weekend.
