Inside Scoop
Book the entire hotel, much like your own California Beach House complete with a full team exclusively dedicated to you and your guests. Your VIP guests will check in to their own rooms at 3pm to find welcome gifts on the end of their beds before meeting the rest of your guests on the roof deck for sunset cocktails, dancing long into the night. Wake the next morning and share breakfast together (the breakfast burrito and avocado toast don't get much better) before venturing to the beach for some early morning group yoga and surfing, or, laze all day on the roof deck sipping cocktails with your best friends before the main event that night. Rise and shine the next morning for a Malibu Mary brunch (the hotel's take on the bloody mary) sharing stories about the weekend that was.
Some tid bits... The Pacific Room has the best view of First Point, the wave that The Endless Summer movie was created about. Order guacamole and a pacifico to your room and laze in the hammock watching the surfers. Surfrider Suite has the largest bathroom and a California King bed. Best views are from the upstairs rooms. The hotel also has a family of 7 wild deer which live on the mountain behind and visit every morning and night. Francisco, the lead bartender, used to own a Mezcal Bar in Mexico and makes the best margarita's on the West Coast. Derek, on the front desk, is a Malibu lifeguard in his spare time and has all the surf tips! And best of all is the sage green 1968 Land Rover perfect for Surf Safaris up the coast.
