How about a great beach resort near Los Angeles?

Also looking into cruise that leave from LA. Any fabulous recommendations for beautiful and luxurious beachfront accomodations with pool- for relaxing and pampering- within hour of LA?

A little more than an hour south of LA, I can think of two:

-- Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, in sunny Dana Point.

-- Montage Resort and Spa, South Laguna Beach.

Both have direct beach access, both are first-class resorts (four- and five-diamond properties) with spa facilities, pools and fine dining (Montage's Studio has developed a following among OC foodies). If you're looking at cruising out of LA, you'll be departing either from San Pedro or Long Beach (the latter Carnival only), which cuts travel time a little bit.

Shutters.

Fantastic hotel right in Santa Monica (15 minutes from Beverly Hills, 25 minutes from Hollywood, traffic permitting)
