Santa Monica is calling your name. As the chill of Winter begins to fade, it's time to be reminded of the golden sands and picturesque sunsets Santa Monica so boastfully claims as her own. Walking along the boardwalk as the late afternoon finds the beaches filling with circus acts, fit and lean locals, tourists and more, one can settle into the vibe that is unique to this rock-cliffed enclave upon the Southern California coastline.
When your feet grow weary and your mouth is parched, meander back to The Huntley hotel, where contemporary beachside glamour meets urban chic. From the moment you enter the front doors, a sense of relaxation taps you on the shoulder and leads you into the lap of luxury. The tranquil colors of the lobby juxtaposed with the contemporary furnishings and raw refined timbers set the mood for the ascent to the luxuriously decorated oversized guestrooms with plush linens, views of the beach and every-detail-considered amenities. And make sure to enjoy a drink in The Penthouse, the view alone will have your head spinning happy.
And since you are so close to a cultural art-filled marvel, make sure to visit the Getty Villa. Perched on a coastal hillside of Malibu, this museum is dedicated to the European arts. Roman inspired gardens and architecture will be the backdrop to the on-display works of art and cultural treasures.
So get your hip, art-loving groove on and head to Santa Monica for a weekend getaway, guaranteed you will leave feeling like a well-rested, glamorous star.
