Oceana Santa Monica

Seaside luxury, reimagined - A modern take on luxury, coastal chic meets residential style in the newly reimagined Oceana. Ideally located on Ocean Avenue with unparalleled Pacific Ocean views, the 70 suites are just blocks from Montana Avenue's boutiques and cafes and a seaside walk to the iconic Promenade and world-famous Santa Monica Pier. Outside, where bluffs give way to miles of bike paths, complimentary beachfront yoga and beach cruisers let you play like a local. And from alfresco, poolside dining in a lush, firepit-cozy courtyard to unscripted 5-star service, Oceana has a refined-yet-relaxed sensibility that makes it your perfect seaside escape.

State-of-the-art amenities & bespoke activities - From curated day outings to A-list personal trainers, and from ultramodern in-room tech to curated spa treatments, Oceana is a haven for beachside adventuring and a destination in and of itself.

A storied, star-studded past - Originally built as an apartment hotel, Oceana immediately became iconic for its prime location, private balconies, and ocean views. The Oceana Apartment Hotel initially captured the attention of Laurel & Hardy’s Stan Laurel, who moved into apartment 203 back in 1958. Here, Laurel entertained dozens of celebrity friends, including Jerry Lewis, Dick Van Dyke, and Marcel Marceau, and answered fan mail by the thousands, correspondence that is still cherished by his fans today.

Accommodations - An elegant beachside home away from home - Oceana offers 70 revitalized luxury suites that reinvigorate the soul while providing the ideal accommodations for an unparalleled beachside getaway. Finished in a sophisticated palette of naturals, blues, blackened steel and gold metal accents, and bold geometric patterns, each guest room offers a unique design aesthetic rooted in absolute comfort and refined elegance. Step into one of the luxurious suites, and you’ll find a spacious bedroom, a private spa-like bath with Bottega Veneta bath and body accessories, and a handsome living area equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology. Here, thoughtful touches and amenities abound, including Frette linens and terry, hand-tufted rugs from Nepal, deluxe Loro Piana bedding, smart lighting with multiple moods, and unique artwork commissioned by acclaimed Los Angeles artists.

Destination dining without leaving the hotel - Open exclusively to guests of the hotel, Oceana’s Californian inspired Dining Room gives a whole new meaning to destination dining. Under the guidance of famed chef Raphael Lunetta, Oceana’s intimate dining experience pairs locally sourced produce and artisanal purveyors from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market alfresco setting to create an aesthetic as creative as the cuisine. Here, seaspray-blues and sunset-peach contrast with pops of gold, nodding to the landscape's beauty in expert harmony.

Wellness - refresh body and mind - Hello, California dreaming. Oceana is a haven for seaside relaxation and SoCal-inspired indulgence. The lush courtyard lets you unwind poolside on oversized daybeds, and nearby Santa Monica beach is perfect for refreshing dips in the ocean or all-afternoon napping. The full-service spa offers customized treatments for the ultimate mind-body rejuvenation. And if a little more movement is more your style, offering personal trainers, a fitness room, and a range of bespoke activities, from beachfront yoga to complimentary beach cruisers.

Discover - It’s all here - Oceana is in the heart of the vibrant seaside city of Santa Monica, at the edge of the Palisades bluffs on the palm-tree-lined Ocean Avenue. It’s a haven away from the bustle but still within walking distance to its best-of beach favorites, from the Marvin Braude Bike Trail, to the upscale boutiques and dining on Montana Avenue, to open-air shopping at Santa Monica Place and the Promenade. Want a taste of the rest of Los Angeles’ expansive, style-meets-substance culture? You’ll find other must-see attractions - from shopping spots, to city hiking, to a booming art scene - just a short drive away.
