Shutters on the Beach

Shutters on the Beach, in Santa Monica, perfectly blends a laid back beach house feel with all the little touches that make you feel pampered and privileged to be relaxing in such an idyllic location.

Ocean Front, Santa Monica, California, United States of America
Shutters on the Beach
  • Location, location, location!  It doesn’t get any better than this, Shutters is right on the edge of the famous golden sands of Santa Monica Beach

  • Indulge in one of the Ocean Front rooms or suites for direct views of the Pacific Ocean sunsets with the sounds of the buzzing boardwalk below

  • The perfect base for exploring all that LA has to offer yet a retreat to return to at the end of a busy day

  • Relax in one of the exclusive poolside cabanas and enjoy fabulous California service

Located right on the beach, and with views over Santa Monica pier, Shutters feels very much like a grand private residence. It seems to blend old and new with ease, juxtaposing dark wood floors and old leather sofas with light, whitewashed rooms using sand and sea colours to give you that beach house informality.

The rooms all have private balconies or patios, some with superb sea views. You can let the ocean in by opening your beach-white shutters and stepping out onto your balcony. The room comes equipped with a suitable range of luxuries; flat screen TVs with movies on demand, iPod docs and rain showers.
There are two restaurants; One Pico, overlooking the sea, offers locally sourced fish and spit-roasted meats complete with an on site sommelier. Coast is a more informal offering, a great place to head for lunch, or a drink in the evening on the enclosed outdoor patio where heated floors keep you warm. The Lobby Lounge also offers light snacks and cocktails.

There is a lovely outdoor pool with views over the ocean, complete with sun loungers and cabanas. The spa is superb and run by Ole Henriksen (who pampers the A List Hollywood crowd) and also contains an expansive Fitness Centre. The hotel can arrange all you need for a day out, such as bikes for rent for the family, to a beach pack which ranges from suntan lotion to an umbrella and beach chairs.

As well as having the beach on your doorstop, there are plenty of opportunities to shop on nearby Montana Avenue. For those thinking of a shopping splurge, head to Beverley Hills’ Rodeo Drive. The Farmers Market in Santa Monica is a great little excursion, as too a visit to Hollywood.

Top tip:

Split your time in L.A between beachfront Santa Monica and buzzy West Hollywood or glamorous Beverly Hills. L.A is a big city with so much to offer, spend a week in the City of Angels and you'll be pleasantly surprised that there's so much more to it than Hollywood stars.
