Hotel Description

PLEASE NOTE: Native Hotel is closed through December 2019 due to damage sustained in the Woolsey Fire.

If you’re like us, what you’d want from a Malibu boutique hotel is something stylish but unpretentious, something comfortable but not extravagant, something a bit bohemian but not overly busy, maybe tempered by a bit of Modernist austerity. Until fairly recently you’d have been out of luck, but with the opening of the Native Hotel, there’s finally a boutique hotel in town with personality and good taste to spare.

Strictly speaking, it’s a re-opening; the Malibu Riviera, once host to the likes of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, was first established in 1947, though the sheen wore off as the decades passed. After a thorough re-imagining at the hands of the L.A. design firm Folklor, it’s found new life, and it’s not hard to imagine the present-day equivalents of Dean and Monroe — if indeed they exist — checking in at the Native for a few nights away from the lights of Hollywood.

The rooms are pared down to just the essentials: a comfortable bed, some high-design furniture, and a bit of artwork — but no television, and no air conditioning either. It takes some confidence to prioritize character over glamour in this part of California, but this is an operation that has plenty to be confident about.
