Contemporary boutique hotel in Malibu
The Surfrider hotel is located on the Pacific Coast Highway across from Surfrider Beach, where the 1966 cult movie The Endless Summer was filmed. The property an iconic part of California history. That’s why architect and hotelier Matthew Goodwin, who grew up in the area, decided to overhaul the property. Together with Emma Crowther, who acts as creative director, and business partner Alessandro Zampedri, they decided to bring the building back to its former glory. A contemporary 20-room boutique hotel offering guests an unparalleled and elevated visit to Malibu.
Natural colors and materials
All rooms are stylishly decorated, characterized by that typical relaxed Californian vibe. A simple color and material palette has been used throughout, with white surfaces, light woods and beige trim. Solid, natural materials can be found everywhere: reclaimed wood floorboards, custom teak beds, stone, ceramic tiles, linens, you name it. Natural carpets and wicker lampshades add homely details to the interior, along with stylish artwork, beautiful books, homeware and fun plants peppered throughout the hotel.
The bedrooms all have access to a sea view balcony, with hammocks in front of the top floor rooms. The roof terrace has sun loungers, a fire pit and a sound system, where guests can relax.
The hotel also has a library and a restaurant, which uses fresh seasonal local produce. Picnics can even be prepared for guests wishing to explore the area. Super nice idea!
