Tucked into a discrete cul-de-sac, away from the boardwalk and embraced by Santa Monica Bay, lies the classic splendor that is Hotel Casa del Mar.

Once an exclusive beach club in the 1920’s, the lobby’s original soaring ceiling and dramatic windows remain, overlooking the surf. The lobby lounge is the most sought after place to unwind after a day in the California sunshine. Choose Catch Restaurant for an end-of-business cocktail, or try the wine bar for inspired pouring.

Guestrooms have been updated for state-of-the-art comfort, and the new Sea Wellness Spa is a paragon of design. With the most picturesque setting in LA and enchanting amenities, Casa del Mar will remind you just what it’s like to live well again.


Catch Restaurant offers an idyllic slice of coastal California. Enjoy sweeping views of the golden sand and sparkling Pacific Ocean as you sample fresh oysters, daily fish specials, juicy steaks and farmer`s market vegetables.

An extensive wine list completes the experience.


With its Eco-friendly design, revitalizing atmosphere, health-benefiting spa treatments and variety of programs for mind and body, Sea Wellness Spa is one of the leading spa and wellness retreats in Santa Monica. Choose from an impressive array of massages, body treatments and anti-aging and hydrating skin care therapies incorporating Kerstin Florian and emerginC Scientific Organics skincare products.

The beautiful and serene space offers four treatment rooms, one couples room, a yoga studio and fitness room.


Santa Monica is LA’s cute, alluring, hippie-chic little sister, its karmic counterbalance and, to many, its salvation. Surrounded by LA on three sides and the Pacific on the fourth, SaMo is a place where real-life Lebowskis sip white Russians next to martini-swilling Hollywood producers, celebrity chefs dine at family-owned taquerias, and soccer moms and career bachelors shop at abundant farmers markets. All the while, kids, out-of-towners and those who love them flock to wide beaches and the pier, where the landmark Ferris wheel and roller coaster welcome one and all.
