What if, instead of braving choppy waters and trying not to be seasick, you could go whalewatching without ever leaving your cloud-like bed or setting down your cup of tea? That’s how it’s done at this inn on “Billionaire’s Beach,” between Santa Monica and Santa Barbara. Its uncluttered, contemporary design is perfect for a setting that produces perfect sunsets, and the service is spot-on but unpretentious, as befits a beach house. All rooms have full or partial ocean views; the King Corner Room (really a studio) hits the sweet spot between space, view, and price, with the bed facing double glass doors that frame a panorama of the Pacific. For a change of scenery, you can gorge on ocean views from the warmth of the Lobby Lounge’s fireplace. In August 2014, the hotel instituted Mixology Fridays, adding a different trio of specialty cocktails each week—a Classic, a Creation and an Original—to its regular cocktail menu. If you can bestir yourself, it’s a short walk to Malibu Pier and Malibu Lagoon State Beach; Pepperdine University, Getty Villa, and the new Anthony C. Beilenson Interagency Visitor in the Santa Monica Mountains are a short drive away.
