1. Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills
If you want to be pampered in a rare secluded spot in LA, you'll want to stay at the Viceroy L'Ermitage Beverly Hills. The hotel's exterior doesn't betray the opulence and five-star amenities that await on the inside. The guest rooms have spacious walk-in closets, exceptionally comfortable Italian sofas and oversized bathrooms that feature plenty of beautiful marble. Every room has a private balcony, and rooms facing the mountains provide breathtaking views that are nearly impossible to turn away from.
Even though you may not want to leave your posh guest room, there are plenty of attractions that are worth a visit close to the Viceroy L-Ermitage Beverly Hills. If you want to explore, you can take advantage of the hotel's complimentary car service and experience LA while being driven around in a Maserati. When you're done exploring the area, you can relax in one of the property's rooftop cabanas or enjoy an oyster martini in the hotel's inviting bar.
This luxurious resort sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean in Rancho Palos Verdes. This beautiful property sprawls more than 102 acres and is the home of desirable amenities, including a nine-hole golf course, a spa and eight restaurants. The resort also has four pools, including one just for adults who don't want to risk being splashed by frolicking children.
While you may be tempted to get out and explore the area, there's no reason for you to leave the grounds of the Terranea to have an active, fun-filled vacation in a decadent environment. You can paddleboard, snorkel and ride horses during your stay at this hotel. In addition to offering a wide array of activities, the Terranea has an assortment of accommodations for you to choose from, including luxurious rooms and suites and larger, equally extravagant bungalows, casitas and villas.
3. Shutters on the Beach
If you want to be pampered with topnotch service in a low-key environment, you should book a prolonged stay at Shutters on the Beach. This property is all about relaxation and comfort, which is why you'll see comfy sofas and chairs throughout the hotel. Guest rooms and suites have gorgeous hardwood floors that absorb the bright sunlight. Every room also has eye-catching white shutters, which were the inspiration for the hotel's name.
While there's plenty to do along the beach, you may prefer to spend some time by the hotel's pool. You can enjoy a refreshing adult beverage and soak in the amazing views of the ocean while you do.
4. Peninsula Beverly Hills
The Peninsula Beverly Hills has 193 rooms and suites as well as 16 private villas that aren't attached to the main hotel.
