World's Best Beach Hotels 2015

Shutters on the Beach

Travel+Leisure readers ranked the best hotels around the globe for sea-breeze bliss—whether they sit on powdery white sand, rocky bluffs, or bustling waterfronts.

No. 9: Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica

12 of 21

Even if its design has a Nantucket mindset—shingle siding, whitewashed walls, and posh-beach-house furnishings—this 198-room hotel is intertwined with the Santa Monica beach scene. It sits right along the L.A. community’s deep beach and bike path, which runs from Venice up to Malibu. Its location, though, is more than just sand and surf, as you have easy access to the Third Street Promenade, the Pier, and Montana Avenue. And while the hotel also made American top 10 for romance, it offers some nice perks for your alone time: the hotel recently started offering guests the chance to pre-order a book to read on the beach, which would be waiting for you upon your arrival.
