Santa Monica Proper Hotel, California - Full-Time Travel

Santa Monica Proper Hotel, California 

Fusing a Spanish Colonial Revival landmark building with sleek, modern renovations, the Santa Monica Proper Hotel is the city’s newest luxury hotel. It’s also an ingenious salute to the beauty of the coast. The thoughtfully restored original details are accented with natural materials such as wood, stone, and metal from local artists, seamlessly blending relaxed Californian lifestyle with historic architectural elements.

The hotel’s rooftop is a popular attraction for guests and locals alike. Step one foot out of the elevator and you’ll see why: sweeping views of the city, a heated pool, and expansive Mediterranean restaurant called Calabara (a place to imbibe wellness juices as well as boutique wines).

But, the Santa Monica Proper Hotel’s signature restaurant, Onda, is just as enticing. It's a bold collaboration between two female chefs – Gabriela Cámara who brings latin flavors from her home of Mexico City, and native Angelino Jessica Koslow, who lays the foundations of the menu with farmers market fare. 

It wouldn’t be a proper stay without a visit to the hotel’s 3,000-square-foot Surya Spa, a collaboration with internationally celebrated Ayurvedic guru Martha Soffer. Enjoy treatments and personalized programs based on the ancient Indian wellbeing system of Ayurveda. Whether you opt for an enriching oil massage of full 28 day Panchakarma program, you'll leave feeling healthier and more aligned in body and mind then when you arrived. 

The Busan Air Cruise, also known as the Sky Capsule Train, is a popular attraction in Busan, South Korea. This unique train ride takes passengers on a journey above the city, providing stunning panoramic views of Busan`s coastline, mountains, and urban landscape. The futuristic capsule-shaped cabins offer a comfortable and immersive experience, making it a must-try activity for visitors exploring Busan.

"Checking into Estelle Manor, the closest thing to a Saltburn-esque staycation you`ll ever experience in the UK. Imagine a beautifully restored Jacobean manor on the cusp of the Cotswolds and nestled within 3,000 acres of Oxfordshire parkland, with extravagant interiors to match (expect bold artworks and intricate details around each corner), a Riviera-style pool to lounge by, and three different restaurant to sink your teeth into. The addition of the hotel`s new Eynsham Baths (an incredible spa modelled on traditional Roman baths) really takes the hotel up another notch, despite it already being in a league of its own." - @ginagoesto ...
