[SPONSORED] Living well is an art form, and few people know it better than the staff of Shutters on the Beach. Steps from the blue waters of the Pacific, this laid-back yet luxurious and exotic hotel prides itself on more than just its comfortable furnishings, high-end amenities, and impeccable service. It’s all about creating timeless moments where everything comes together, creating a guest experience that’s truly sublime. Start your romantic weekend in Santa Monica with an inspiring tour of the hotel’s art collection, which contains original works by pop artists David Hockney and Roy Lichtenstein and abstract expressionist Robert Motherwell. Then release the stress from your bodies with yoga on the beach, a surf lesson, a massage in the spa, or a dip in the private pool, where the sound of ocean waves will lull you into a state of blissful relaxation. Let the master sommelier find the perfect wine to pair with the California-influenced cuisine of One Pico, one of the most romantic restaurants in the area. When you catch the reflection of the fireplace in your sweetheart’s eyes, you’ll know the joy of a life well lived, and vow to return again and again.
