Luxury Holidays At Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

Unveiled for 2015, are the beautifully renovated iconic bungalow suites. Designed by celebrated interior designer Michael Berman, the superbly enhanced bungalows exude Malibu beach house style and are fresh with 'surf modern' accents. Each has its own distinct fresh colour palate and subsequent personality. Calming hues of blue and organic textures combine with custom lighting and locally-inspired vintage artwork and artefacts - effortlessly capturing Santa Monica's attractive coastal lifestyle. Offering privacy and convenience, these 32 bungalows sit nestled above Santa Monica State Beach, within the famous Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows resort, and many boast spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

Over the years the resort has played host to a number of high-profile guests, including Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all loved the seclusion and privacy of the hotel's thirty-two gorgeous bungalows, which are dotted throughout its fragrant gardens. For almost a hundred years this award-winning property has offered its guests superbly efficient and unobtrusive service and today features award-winning therapies at its Exhale Spa, casually elegant cuisine at its two dining venues, a fabulous outdoor swimming pool and a 24-hour fitness centre with the latest equipment, while newly renovated guest rooms and suites exude relaxed Californian chic and are located in the historic Palisades Wing and ten-storey Ocean Tower - many also enjoy beach views from their private balconies. Just a complimentary transfer away (or a five-minute walk) is the hotel's Miramar Beach Club, which allows guests to enjoy the services of beach butlers proffering drinks, snacks and a dining menu throughout the day, with complimentary games and activities available for all the family to enjoy on the beach. Those guests with shopaholic tendencies, however, will be delighted to learn that the fashionable boutiques and restaurants of Beverly Hills are less than half an hour away, while Santa Monica itself has its own fair share of upmarket shopping opportunities at Santa Monica Place.

In Addition

Los Angeles is very close by and, in addition to attractions that are family-orientated, such as Universal Studios and Disneyland, there's so much more to see and visit, including the bright lights of Hollywood, the Getty Museum at the hilltop Getty Center (replete with European and American decorative art, sculptures and paintings) and Los Angeles Zoo's 1,200 animals.

The designer boutiques of Rodeo Drive can be found just thirty minutes away in nearby Beverly Hills, while closer to the hotel, Santa Monica Place is bursting with designer stores such as Tiffany & Co, Michael Kors, Burberry and Louis Vuitton.

The nine-acre Santa Monica Pier is a must-visit while staying at Fairmont Miramar Hotel and is conveniently close to the hotel. Visit its famous carousel (a national Historic Landmark), take a ride on its red and yellow ferris wheel, have a two-hour trapeze lesson at the pier's Trapeze School of New York, visit the arcade, do a spot of fishing or enjoy dishes of fresh seafood at the pier's seven restaurants. For those who love to bike-ride, there's a twenty-six-mile trail along the coastline, while there are opportunities to enjoy paddleboarding and surfing at Bay Street, a popular surf spot, with companies that offer rental of equipment and lessons.

For arts and culture, check out Bergamot Station, an old train depot containing no fewer than thirty-five galleries, while for gourmands, the four-times-weekly Farmers' Market is a must-visit and is incredibly popular with top chefs, celebrities and local residents, who adore the fresh, organic produce.
