The Surfrider Malibu
Bleached beach interiors abound at The Surfrider Malibu; there’s light wood, wicker, and white as far as the eye can see. And the result is exactly what you’d hope coastal living in Malibu would be, but a damn sight more luxurious. There are Bellino Linens on the beds and Grown Alchemist products in the bathrooms. Sustainable and organic food and drinks are available to enjoy. Local art to see on the walls. And, of course, charging stations for your electric cars. There are even custom surfboards by Wax Surf Co., Dead Kooks, and Keegan Gibbs – after all, what would a visit to The Surfrider Malibu be if you didn’t at least flirt with the idea of riding a wave?
Almost all the rooms here have Pacific Ocean views – and they’re really something to behold, some of which stretch right out to Malibu Pier and Santa Monica Bay. The Surfrider Suite is the best of the best; all 500-square-feet of it serenely screams California cool. Flooded with light and decorated with the aforementioned devotion to white and wicker, it has a sitting area and, better yet, an outdoor terrace kitted out with hammocks and a space for dining. From this vantage point, you can happily kick back and watch the surfers – ideal if flirting with the idea of getting on a board is as close as you want to come. But all of the rooms at The Surfrider Malibu are just as chic, if not as big, and feature more than enough great amenities, including Bose speakers and a very well stocked mini fridge.
But if you’d prefer to get your food and drinks in an altogether airier locale, then look no further than The Surfrider Malibu’s roof terrace. Here, the views are panoramic, the food and drink Californian and ethical, and the ambience? Incomparable. As the light fades, a chill might come into the air, but don’t fear – there’s a fire pit. So there’s no reason to leave. Just sip your drink and let the Malibu dream continue.
