Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica

Phew. After a day’s hectic sightseeing in Los Angeles, a tour of movie stars’ palaces in Beverley Hills and a frenzy of shopping in the city’s world class stores, it’s time to relax. And, if you had the foresight to reserve a stay in Shutters on the Beach as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the USA, you can do it in some style. Whatever style of relaxation suits your mood.

You can step directly onto the white sand of Santa Monica’s fine beach, and stroll along the water’s edge, the waves lapping at your toes. You can kick back in the Living Room lounge, cocktail in hand, and gaze at the ocean. You can try a yoga session or massage. Or simply indulge in a deeply satisfying dinner.
