Santa Monica, California
Viceroy Santa Monica
What it is
A charming coastal retreat with buzzing restaurants and bars, a gleaming pool, and yoga classes on the sand.
What it isn't
Tired. The entire property was recently refreshed, including brand new boites like Sugar Palm Ocean Avenue, set by the pool.
What we think
A waterfront Santa Monica beach house can set you back $5 million, easy. So why not nab a similar experience at Viceroy, complete with a doting staff at-the-ready to attend to all your needs? Guestrooms are adorned in seafoam blues and coastal grays, each one with Italian linens, Natura Bisse bath products, and a sitting area; book the 640-square-foot Empire Suite for an oversized living area with a tufted L-shaped sofa for sprawling and taking in the sunset over the Pacific from your floor-to-ceiling windows. Did we mention the property is eco-forward from their green housekeeping to their drip-irrigation in the gardens?
You're here because
Amenities include loaner bikes and a fitness center well-stocked enough for any ascendant starlet, including lat machines, ellipticals and balance balls.
Splayed under a palm tree-shrouded modernist cabana by a new turquoise pool, you’re starting to think you’re about to be discovered—or maybe that’s just your cocktail and oversized sunglasses talking. “Hey, Hollywood.”
