Oceana is Santa Monica’s Newest Glam HideawayAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
Finding a quiet haven in the midst of Santa Monica’s bustling beach scene can be a challenge, but the transformed Oceana is just that. Located on a serene residential stretch away from the bustle of Santa Monica Pier & Third Street Promenade, Oceana is one of the area’s newest luxury additions, featuring an array of impressive amenities.
Guests will first be wowed by the residential-style interiors from designer Anna Busta of Busta Studio in NYC. The 70 revitalized suites feature a sophisticated neutral palette with touches of blackened steel, gold metal, and bold geometric patterns. Inside each suite is a spacious bedroom, private spa-like bath with Bottega Veneta bath and body accessories, and an expansive living area equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Here, guests will find Frette linens and terry, hand-tufted rugs from Nepal, deluxe Loro Piana bedding, smart lighting with multiple moods, and unique artwork commissioned by local Los Angeles artists.
The ocean-view restaurant and bar, curated by Santa Monica chef and restauranteur Raphael Lunetta, is open exclusively to guests of the hotel and offers an intimate dining experience with locally sourced produce and artisanal purveyors from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. The with the al fresco setting is complemented by hues of blue and peach with pops of gold.
Oceana’s outdoor courtyard lounge features a swimming pool, James Perse furnishings, fire pits, and lush greenery and blooms from landscape architecture firm Perry Guillot of the Hamptons. The spa and fitness center are also worth checking out: the former features coconut-fig facials, Shiatsu-meets-Swedish massages, and more, while the latter features the much-coveted Peloton Personal Trainers. And if you’re up for some vacation activities, the hotel’s programming includes beach yoga and a partnership with The Getty museum.
