LA’s Very Best Beachfront Staycations

Please don’t mind our rather obnoxious, forthcoming bragging, but Los Angeles has some of the very best weather in the world. We also happen to have some of the best restaurants, clubs, events, and hotels. We’re just awesome like that. Just because you want a fabulous vacation doesn’t mean you have to skip town. Here are our picks for LA’s very best beachfront hotels.

Terranea Resort

Expect Terranea to impress you from the moment you walk through the door. Enjoy the wonderful views of the ocean and beautiful homes as you receive a complimentary glass of champagne with your check in. Amenities include a full oceanfront golf course, gym, spa, and no less than eight different restaurants. During the holidays, make sure to check out their themed events and fireside activities.

Shutters On The Beach

If you want the relaxing feel of a beach house with all of the benefits of a luxury hotel, Shutters is the location for you. Located in Santa Monica, the biggest selling point here is the rooms which will make you just simply not want to leave. Don’t let that stop you from visiting their bar, The Living Room, to enjoy regular live music events. For dinner, hop in the hotel’s complimentary car service to nearby hot spots like Cut in Santa Monica or Primitivo Wine Bar.

Malibu Beach Inn

Described as “glorious” by visitors, make sure you check out the Malibu Beach Inn. This hotel is located in the center of everything in ever-so-chic Malibu, having a less than five minute walk to Nobu or the Malibu Pier, and sitting right on the beach. You will positively enjoy the 180 degree ocean views in every room. The pictures you take there will leave you desperate to return.

Hotel Casa Del Mar

Located next door to Shutters, this uber classically glamorous Santa Monica Hotel will not fail to impress. The architecture in itself is out of a movie. The staff are the high point here, attentive, but still respectful of your privacy. Great amenities include a pool if you have had enough salt water from the ocean, and an on site gym. They will impress you enough that you may consider joining Club Casa Del Mar so you can enjoy them even when you are not visiting. For dinner, we recommend the on-site Catch restaurant alongside live jazz during the weekends.
