Fodor's Review

A mammoth Moreton Bay fig tree dwarfs the main entrance of the 4-acre Santa Monica retreat that plays host to families, businesspeople, couples, and friends wanting a wellness retreat a short walk to the sand. The modernized lobby lounge houses games and opens onto a heated patio. Fig, the hotel's inviting restaurant, emphasizes local and seasonal ingredients in inventive combinations. Low-rise and extremely luxurious, residential-style bungalows built between 1920 and

1946 are outfitted like minimansions, complete with butler service—a favorite perk of visiting VIPs. Newly renovated standard rooms in the 10-story tower offer tight quarters, but they do come with beautiful ocean views, Lynda Murray designs, Bose stereo systems, and goose-down duvets. The in-house Exhale Spa offers exercise classes and massages. The pool area and seasonal beach club cater to guests wanting to play in the sun. Eco-conscious efforts include 50% off parking for hybrid vehicles, and "green" meetings. The Bungalow is one of the Westside's hot spots for cocktails on weekends.
