Beachfront, ocean shoreline, laidback mood with urban amenities and Pacific vibes make Santa Monica the ideal getaway.
Situated at one of the most perfect locations between Pacific and western Los Angeles, this decorated, iconic resort town revels in the sunshine and beach waves. With Santa Monica Pier at the foot of Colorado Avenue as its global landmark, the well-lit town offers a good deal of everything that sums up for a perfect vacation. An ideal 13 km ride from LAX, Santa Monica is a complete destination which caters to all that is luxurious and entertaining. It sets home in popular culture with movies, art, theatre and also favours an agreeable climate. To experience luxury and comfort in an effortless fashion, we did some curation to impart what exists and goes beyond the Pier at Santa Monica.
Luxury Beach Stays
Delving into a luxurious stay when at a famed resort town is all about being able to comprehend the legendary living experiences as offered by the hoteliers. Santa Monica accommodates a collection of 41 luxury, boutique and chain hotels. Undulating oceanic views and the panorama of the shoreline are significantly utilised by the hotels to give an unforgettable and complete Pacific experience. Loews Hotel offers a great coastal-themed suite experience whereas Hotel Casa del Mar exudes more of vintage elegance. For a very sneaky Hollywood-like experience, Oceana Beach Club Hotel roars of a contemporary yet 1950s setting. The interiors are impeccable with adept concierge services.
An extraordinary sun and sand experience can get a lot more extravagant with Perry’s Cafe and Beach Rentals. The service provides private butlers who are available at the beck and call of sun-dazers. This terrific customer solution is available at both, the north and the south of the iconic Santa Monica pier. An exclusively reserved butler sets a ‘camp’ with all the paraphernalia and a schlep-free beach-day is good to go. Luxuriating at your desired, shoreside location is without a shadow of a doubt, the most rejuvenating escapade. Surfing and paddleboarding are activities to look out to and indulge in along with an oceanfront walk. Soaking up the Californian Sun cannot get any better than this.

When it comes to fulfilling a travelling experience, local exploration and a well-guided restaurant dynamic are important. Santa Monica is famed and decorated for its global culinary approach and a cosmopolitan dining community. Creative food developed with groundbreaking experiments and delectable designs for the taste buds, it is enriched with locations like patios, beachfront and rooftops.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic
The French champagne house hosts this exuberant event every June at the Los Angeles’ Liberty State Park and at the Will Rogers State Historic Park, the only surviving polo field out of 25. This event attracts a glittering audience of celebrities cheering at the polo match led by Nacho Figueras with champagne bubbling in hands as tradition. It celebrated its 10th polo classic this year. Sprawling tents and parasols with galloping horses under the beautiful sunny Californian environment give just the right amount of adrenaline and elegance together. A global, exciting and glamorous event like this one becomes a major travel reason to adjoining vicinities like Santa Monica.
