Just steps away from the beach, the Santa Monica Proper Hotel seduces us with its sleek and minimalist design.
Architect Kelly Wearstler was inspired by the city of Santa Monica and collaborated with the biggest names in LA art, such as Ben Medansky, Morgan Peck, Tanya Aguiñiga, Len Klikunas, and Bradley Duncan to create original works. The design of the rooms is different in each building. The 267 rooms and suites are inspired by the colors of the coastline. Neutral tones, raw woods, and natural Californian light adorn this luxurious hotel.
Its rooftop pool is the perfect place to watch the sunrise and sunset. Wellness takes precedence with the Surya Spa, a 300 m2 center that offers Ayurvedic programs and therapeutic massages tailored to promote mental and physical health. Mediterranean cuisine can be found on the hotel’s rooftop, Le Calabra, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Pacific.
If you’re more into greenery, the lush Olea garden also offers peace and serenity, and you can enjoy fresh sushi and sake. You can also dine and enjoy a light lunch at the third restaurant, Palma. In a nutshell, head for Los Angeles.
