Shutters on the Beach

Santa Monica, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

The hotel

A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, Shutters on the Beach is an award-winning establishment with a distinctly discerning clientele. Similar in style to a 1920s or 1930s beach resort, it is light, airy and luxurious with many works of art on show, including pictures by David Hockney and Robert Motherwell. Rooms and suites boast all the comforts of home and are very generous in size with great views of the ocean. Amenities include the gorgeous ONE Spa offering a wide range of signature treatments, including the RED FLOWER HAMMAM detoxifying treatment. There’s also a swimming pool to laze by and a well-equipped fitness centre with sauna and steam rooms. One Pico is the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, showcasing a seasonally changing menu of modern American cuisine. If a more laid-back atmosphere appeals, however, beach-side cafe Coast more than fits the bill and is open from morning until night. For afternoon tea and evening cocktails, look no further than the lobby lounge, a cosy, intimate space that is popular with locals and guests alike.

My husband and I came to Shutters for a relaxing weekend and got just that! We spent most of our time at the pool/hot tub and by the beach. The food/drinks were delicious and barely left the property! I highly recommend Shutters!

My wife and I stayed at Shutters for 5 nights and had a terrific time. Great room and hotel amenities, friendly and helpful staff and prime location on the beach and bike path. We would definitely stay here again whenever we’re back in LA.

We stayed in a king ocean view room which in our case was located near the intersection of pico and appian way. While we could hear the traffic and restaurant below it was never enough to cause us to feel disturbed. We were in bed by 9pm every night and couldn’t hear any noise from below. Our room was the perfect space to unwind and enjoy our anniversary. The location in Santa Monica can not be beat, nor can the food here at the Shutters. A five star breakfast by the beach, or in bed overlooking the beach. Amazing desserts and drinks after a day shopping. A relaxing spa day finished with turn down service and dinner in bed. The room, location, service and food make for a relaxing 5 star experience. We look forward to being back. Read less
