Santa Monica, California
Oceana Santa Monica
LXR Hotels & Resorts
What it is
An indulgent oceanfront hideaway of 70 luxe suites, with a waterfront pool, curated spa treatments and a locavore restaurant that L.A.’s glitterati adore.
What it isn't
Lacking anything you’ll need from a stellar SoCal stay. Loaner bikes, surf lessons, sunrise yoga sessions on the sand...you name it, they’ve probably got it.
What we think
If you believe the beauty lies in the details, Oceana Santa Monica was practically tailor-made for you. The linens? Frette. The rugs? Hand-tufted by artisans in Nepal. Even the toiletries are glam here: made by Bottega Veneta, as if to wow the next Elizabeth Taylor. We adore that every single room is a suite here, and you can’t go wrong—whether you opt for the Lanai Suites (from 700 square feet, with a walk-in closet, California king bed, and cashmere throw blankets) or a Signature Oceanfront Suite, most of whom are equipped with private balconies, soaking tubs and separate living rooms with floor-to-ceiling views over the Pacific. Take full advantage of all the included pampering—from first-garment-complimentary dry cleaning to nightly turndown. Here, every guest is a V.I.P.
You're here because
The plush amenities make you feel like you just produced a Hollywood blockbuster, including beach butlers, airport transfers, and even on-staff personal trainers and guided hikes.
After the morning your concierge planned—an insider tour of the Getty Villa—you’re not sure your day can get any better. But then your waiter sets a local Creekstone skirt steak with truffle compound butter before you, and you let out a contented sigh. This is living.
