The 47-room Malibu Beach Inn is a modern, elegant escape that delivers a taste of Malibu’s good life. With clean lines and an excellent beachfront location perfect for celebrity spotting, this three-story inn is a SoCal sensation.
Bed & Bath
The rooms, decorated in earthy tones of cream, sand and exotic wenge wood, have a homey sophistication. Wine coolers stocked with bottles of California’s finest, upscale Molton Brown bath products, fireplaces and sliding doors opening to private balconies lend a home-away-from-home vibe. Fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the inn’s private beach.
The inn’s public areas are compact and intimate, dotted with artwork by contemporary painter Glenn Ness. Most guests prefer to relax on rattan chairs on the open terrace. On the third floor, Veronica Skin & Body Care Spa has woven seagrass walls and ceilings draped with creamy linen. There’s a full list of treatments using local company Osea’s marine products. Be sure to make reservations for a table on Carbon Beach Club’s terrace well in advance for California coastal cuisine with Malibu Pier views.
In the Area
The mountains that cradle Malibu are full of hiking trails that wind past waterfalls and reveal stunning views of Santa Monica Bay and Catalina Island. Looking to sample some wine? Even beachy Malibu has a burgeoning scene. Visit Cornell Tasting Room or the Rosenthal Estate and sip Rhone-style wines from vineyards clinging to the hillsides behind those insanely expensive houses. Further afield (12 miles), the Santa Monica Pier houses an amusement park featuring a roller coaster and the world’s first solar-powered Ferris wheel. Or take to the water via surf or paddleboard with lessons from Malibu Surf Shack. Many visitors opt to tour the modern Getty Museum near Bel-Air, but in the late oil mogul’s neoclassical Getty Villa in Malibu, you’ll find art and artifacts from ancient Rome, Etruria and Greece.
How to Get There
I came here for a late lunch and was greeted by friendly staff and even asked if i wanted reading material as I was solo. The steak salad was excellent and the view of the beach and pier from the restaurant is very nice. Unfortunately it was raining (!) so i couldn't sit outside, but indoors was fine too.
Overall a nice place.
Note there is valet parking available which I would advise taking. The only trouble is that it is accessible only to southbound traffic. I was traveling north and didn't see this so parked in the street opposite which I would NOT recommend since there are no crosswalks nearby!
The Malibu Beach Inn is a destination that you never know who you will run into! A singer you know well and her husband and two kids were at the hotel during my last visit . Great family time for them !Have stayed there a number of times with a view of the Ocean you do not want to miss! The sound of the ocean outside your room will lull you to sleep . Restaurant extends out towards the beach is picture perfect!
Totally fabulous, zen, feng shui, awesome retreat! Exquisite staff make the stay perfect. Loved the beachfront location. Our room faced the famous Malibu Pier = gorgeous sunsets! Beautifully furnished rooms, top quality amenities.
We enjoyed a luxurious stay that left me not wanting to leave. Will definitely return!
Our first time here. Had the junior suite overlooking ocean. Nicely appointed clean room. Deck and view are spectacular. Restaurant has exceptionally good, natural, local food.
The best part of the stay......the staff!!!
Unbelievable service, friendliness and overall customer service.
I've always wanted to stay at this hotel. Finally stayed last week for two nights (wish it could have been longer). The view from the room was breathe taking, listening to the waves at night fabulous! The restaurant is wonderful again, looking over the water. The food was excellent! We didn't use our car for the two days we stayed at the hotel. Walked down the pier (had lunch), sat on the beach, had a massage. Plenty to do also so relaxing.
