Southern California is the perfect place for a special weekend get away. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a family friendly spot these beach front properties and luxury hotels are the perfect places to relax and get pampered. From high tea accompanied by a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Rose at the Peninsula in Beverly Hills followed by shopping on Rodeo Drive to breakfast overlooking the Pacific Ocean followed by cabana poolside at Pelican Hill, these are the most luxurious resorts with the most extensive amenities that southern California has to offer. Now is the time to take a trip down the coast from Santa Barbara to San Diego to stay at some of my favorites.
Four Seasons Resort Santa Barbara
The Coral Casino Beach & Cabana Club pool is over 160 feet long and is situated right next to the beach, offering 31 private cabanas.
Shutters on The Beach- Santa Monica
The perfect location if you’re looking for nothing to get in between the way of your room and the sand.
Peninsula Beverly Hills
Tip: While staying at the Peninsula, relax and have one of the complimentary house cars, including the Rolls-Royce below, take you around Beverly Hills or neighboring town Century City.
