Malibu Beach Inn
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 Mani Brothers Real Estate Group stepped in and purchased the Malibu Beach Inn in 2015. A full remodel by world-renowned designer Waldo Fernandez followed soon after , and now all 47 earth-toned rooms have private balconies overlooking white-sand Carbon Beach, and interiors done up with Wedgewood furniture and pillow-topped beds. Guests will also enjoy Bamford bath products in every room and suite. But no one comes to Malibu to stay indoors: the hotel’s alfresco CBC (Carbon Beach Club) restaurant serves delicious seafood with views of the surf, and the outdoor Malibu Country Mart is just a five-minute walk from the hotel entrance. Come evening, it’s Malibu’s most exclusive spot for watching the sunset.
