Malibu

Hotels in Malibu

In Los Angeles, there’s no better place than Malibu to rub shoulders with film-industry elite, whether on the beaches (all are public) or at nearby hot spots. Perhaps that’s why media mogul David Geffen stepped in and reopened the Malibu Beach Inn in 2007.

This luxury retreat in the Santa Monica Mountains is focused on exercise, nutrition, and a tech disconnect from everyday life. Ten hours of daily exercise, mostly hiking, is mandatory during the week-long stay, along with a regiment of yoga, stretching, and toning.
