Overview

Embrace Malibu’s studiously laid-back vibe at this escape with gorgeous Pacific views from nearly every window

The Look

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.

Beyond

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.

Best beach hotel in California
David Robert L

Waves 20 ft from your door. Great deck restaurant with views of sunset and LA. Spa. Beach. Malibu Pier. Search all you want for a better set up in LA. This is it. Gem. Right off US 1. Sit on the beach. Walk to all the best restaurants on the beach.

I was a little uncertain on being dropped off at this spot hard by PCH. But then I popped into my room and the highway noise disappeared in favor of the Pacific surf right outside my balcony. Calm and low-key decor, attentive service, and a nice bar/restaurant right downstairs. Well done!

Delightful visit

We had lunch at the oceanfront terrace and it was wonderful. Our table was at prime location directly over the famous ocean.

We began with fish tacos and then onto grilled swordfish and salmon. Accompanied by a refreshing Californian white wine, every dish was delicious.

With cheerful and oh so attentive service from the staff plus the whole ambiance, it was a memorable occasion.
