Savor An Endless Summer At The Peninsula’s Cabanas
When you’re in L.A., you’re constantly working to make time move on your side. While things like parking limits and commute suggestions require finesse, the Peninsula Beverly Hills has figured out how to maximize the one thing time isn’t so hard on here: summer. Set on the property’s rooftop, surrounded by the buildings of Century City on one end and the distant skyline of downtown on the other, the Peninsula’s poolside cabanas suspend the best of the season in shades of calming blue. You can rent one – without being a guest at the hotel – as part of an “Endless Summer” package until the end of the year.
The dozen azure-hued cabanas may be most appreciated for their shade, but they also create entertaining spaces that can be as private as you need. Matching teal towels color two lounge chairs at the cabana’s entrance, and inside, a table for three sits between a serving bar and a third lounge chair. You could watch TV on a flat-screen, make use of the complimentary WiFi, or listen to music from a docking station as breeze softly billows in, but there’s also a 60-foot pool steps away that glistens in the sunlight. After a dip, ask your waiter for a menu.
You may blissfully keep your eyes from a clock as you rotate from a swim to a siesta all day, but your stomach won’t keep you from enjoying a five-star meal.
