Highs + Lows

  • Great pick to escape the city, cleanse the body, start a juice fast, do some yoga, and return to the city recharged.

  • For those “in the know” it’s a highly social gathering of fashion, entertainment, and music business folk. A pitstop for the “who’s who”. Good for power meetings.

  • A relaxing pool you can get lost in for days...and nights.

  • The hotel is dog friendly. Yay!

  • Hectic valet: if you’re in a rush to get in and out, give yourself extra time for valet parking to get your car. It can be quite a wait.

  • Due to the policy of no kids in the pool, the hotel is not a family friendly escape. (however, I'm sure the adults appreciate the non pee-pee pool)

    Boutique

  • Vibe

    Hip, seaside, creative and healthy getaway.

  • Pool/Gym

    Yes, a power pool. Gym and spa are great.

  • Restaurant

    In harmony with the fact it's a spa hotel, the menu honors well being with organic meats, fish and unprocessed foods with a Mediterranean vibe. P.S. They supply juice cleanses too!

  • Bar

  • Wifi

    Yes

  • Children

    Leave them at home.

    Medium, $200-ish per night.
