Close to both the buzz of L.A. and the splendor of the Pacific Ocean, this 275-room hotel in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains offers a sense of seclusion while still being within a 25-minute drive of Malibu. Everything is designed to soothe, from the elegant mahogany furnishings and floral artworks to the lovely gardens, complete with waterfalls. Many guests come with a self-improving mission and take full advantage of the property’s acclaimed spa and the adjoining California Health & Longevity Institute.
In the Area
It may still be in the shadow of California’s more feted wine regions, but the wineries of Malibu are starting to make a name for themselves: sample some locals drops at Malibu Family Wines, a joint venture between the Semler and DeJoria families, making wine under the Semler and Saddlerock labels. While in the area, nosh on delicious pulled pork sandwiches and just-picked salads at Malibu Kitchen, part of the Malibu Country Mart. Afterwards, get in some cardio on a hike through the Hollywood Hills on the Hollyridge Trail, where you can fill your Instagram feed with artsy shots of the famous Hollywood sign atop Mount Lee.
How to Get There
The Service: AWESOME service!! Starting from the valet service, Martin and Gabriel were super friendly and helpful. Gave me detail directions how to get to the spa. Service was very efficient and professional.
At the spa, Rose at the counter, super sweet! She gave me a tour of the spa, very pleasant customer service. My massage therapist, Josie, was the best!! She gave great deep tissue massage! She asked questions before the treatment so that she could provide better service. Will definitely come back for other treatments~
The Parking: Valet parking with validation $10. Self-parking first 4 hours free with validation.
It was a celebratory weekend and we wanted to stay local to the Los Angeles area. i could not find ANY hotels in Metro LA that has the Spa Facilities offered by the Four Seasons Westlake Village. It was just 15 minutes from home, and hands-down - a definite REPEAT StayCation for us. The pool area is plain (old school Beverly Hills style), but the Staff are great. Hard to find any pools in LA that can beat Las Vegas' choices, but they make it up with the spa.
We checked into our room two weeks ago for a week-long company conference. Our first room was facing the parking lot, third floor, and so we were able to hear a lot of noise. We asked to move to another room, but the front desk person insisted that the rooms were sold out. She then later called to inform us that if we paid extra amount per night, we could get a higher floor room with a view opposite of the parking space. We accepted the offer and the room was definitely much better. However, for a five-star resort, with the amount that we already paid for the initial room, granted that the company had negotiated for a discounted room, with ample availability, we should have at least given an option to relocate somewhere quieter without having to pay extra.
The overall accommodations were nice, but the check-in experience left a bad taste that persisted throughout the week.
The service was certainly not what we expected from a five star resort.
Beautiful hotel, great service, good food and the best sleep and shower in America. Traveling for work isn't always fun but I look forward to staying here. After 12 hour meetings I am blessed to come back to such an amazing place.
Excellent service, rooms cleaned twice daily, comfy beds, friendly staff both inside and outside. Restaurant, bar and coffee shop on site. Large outdoor pool, exercise room and beautiful garden with waterfall.
