    Best sleep ever at a hotel! Bedding, pillows, mattress are superb. Bathrooms are amazing - a little small but that’s ok.

    No.

    Staff, my bungalow, the grounds, the views, the beauty and grace and history of it, with deliciously modern amenities. It’s truly an enchanted place. I think would be perfect for a wedding or other party.

    It’s very expensive

There are 92 suites and bungalows on offer here, no two of which are the same. All are outfitted with high-end furnishings and the best of modern technology, though, such as high-speed Internet and big-screen TVs.

The infinity edge pool provides more than just a place to cool off – it overlooks the American Riviera with views out to the Pacific Ocean. There is an on-site resultant, bar and lounge, as well as a spa where guests are able to indulge and let their worries float away. Guests can also indulge in a stroll through the stunning gardens at the hotel.
