We had a fabulous time in LA. Having been back a little while now, we’ve started to reflect on our magical adventure and can’t wait to share with you some of the hidden (and not so hidden!) Californian treasures. Here’s a round up of some of our favourite LA hotels.
The Viceroy, Santa Monica – Beachy Boutique
The Viceroy perches right on Santa Monica beach, boasting beautiful Californian views – perfect for newlyweds who just want to gaze out to the azure sea together. The hotel also has a fantastic restaurant, fitness centre, beauty bars in each room with spa products and two pools, perfect for just chilling next to with a cheeky cocktail in hand. The Viceroy is chic and elegant, the ultimate modern, luxurious boutique beach hotel. Perfect for a destination wedding or honeymoon, we love this one for its fusion of classic sophistication with a modern twist.
Four Seasons, Beverly Wilshire – Exquisite Opulence
With its impressively grand façade, the Beverly Wilshire makes a stunning first impression. And the inside doesn’t disappoint either! Marble, crystal and luxurious florals greet you, and if you stay, you simply have to take the Penthouse Suite where they filmed Pretty Woman. With exquisite panoramic views, a spacious terrace and gorgeous walk-in closet, this is the ultimate Beverly Hills luxury hotel accommodation.
Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel – Shopping Paradise
This is the only hotel situated directly on Rodeo Drive, so you’ll be first in line at the world famous boutiques. Comfortably elegant, the Luxe boasts 88 chic, minimal designer rooms with in-room spa services, perfect for a relaxed honeymoon. They also offer limousine services, a gym and of course, those unrivalled Beverly Hills views. We adore this boutique hotel for its personalised service and access to insider knowledge… You’ll have to visit to find out more…
Shutters on the Beach – Beach Side Bliss
A gym, surf lessons and yoga on the sand. Or spend all your time being pampered in the spa. Shutters has a gorgeous selection of activities and treatments, and you can top it all off by relaxing in your classic Californian room. Light and airy, chic yet laid back, we love the relaxed vibe of Shutters. And there’s dining to match! Three dining options for relaxed beachfront casual, refined elegance or their ‘Living Room’ – a bar, a lounge, a perfect spot to take in the Pacific Ocean view.
For the most indulgent vintage glamour, look no further than the Montage. One of Beverly Hills’ most refined offerings, honeymooners can retreat to a private poolside cabana, indulge in a cocktail or two in the Garden Bar or take a breath and absorb the rooftop views of the Hollywood Hills. And then there’s the spa… Offering an abundant menu of services, there’s almost every treatment you can think of! We would highly recommend taking an extended stay to try out as many as you can!
W Los Angeles – Vibrant Modern
Fun, fresh and fabulous, the W is a modern, colourful treat. We absolutely adore their Whatever/Whenever service. Just pick up the phone, press the special button and your wish is their command! The W is definitely a place to be seen, and a honeymoon here would be a lot of fun. With a spa, pool and gym as well as their airy and light rooms, even four legged friends are catered for. Well, this is LA!
