Hotel Description

Malibu is a destination whose reputation, at least for visitors, rests more on legend than experience. It’s a magical little stretch of coastline, but one whose hotel options have historically been thin. No longer; the Surfrider Malibu is a Fifties icon transformed by its new owners — a Californian architect, an Australian-born free spirit, and an Italian race car driver — into the boutique hotel this town has always deserved, set right on the Pacific Coast Highway, directly across from Surfrider Beach.

The look is pared-down and elegant, a sort of bohemian minimalism, the 20 rooms decorated in light neutrals that are full of organic textures, from the reclaimed teak floorboards to the modern-rustic furnishings created by local designers. Upstairs rooms have private terraces with partial or full views of the Pacific. They’re far from lavish or opulent but they’re luxurious in their details, and life here is anything but difficult — though more than a little bit glamorous, the vibe here is light-hearted and fun.

And while some of our favorite hotels use their public spaces to interact with the local scene, the Surfrider’s roof terrace restaurant and bar is for guests only, in keeping with the intent of the hotel: more a private Malibu beach house than a typical boutique hotel. It’s a refuge, but not an isolated one — the views of the pier, the Pacific, and one of California’s most famous beaches lend it an unmistakable sense of place.

Please note: The Surfrider Malibu is a small property with only 20 rooms. Book early as rooms sell out quick. For a view, book an upstairs room — if storage space is a concern, book a suite. For arrival, be aware that the reception is open from 6:30 AM until 11 PM.
