Los An­ge­les, Cal­i­for­nia


BIG CITY LOVE The Park Av­enue neigh­bour­hood makes the Gan­sevoort a choice pick; the sexy rooftop pool; in­side a slick guest room; the ho­tel’s iconic lobby. The glam­our of L. A. makes it an in­cred­i­bly fab­u­lous hon­ey­moon es­cape. With weather that is pretty much per­fect all year, you are guar­an­teed to have an amaz­ing stay and en­joy re­lax­ing on the beach, strolling the Santa Mon­ica Pier, shop­ping Rodeo Drive and the awe­some out­door mega-mall The Grove, and din­ing al fresco at the famed Ivy resto, where you will likely see a few fa­mous faces.

An­other pri­vate sweet spot where you might bump into celebs is at the Four Sea­sons Los An­ge­les at Bev­erly Hills, which is one of the city’s most ex­clu­sive and ro­man­tic stays. Nes­tled into a quiet res­i­den­tial area in Bev­erly Hills, the ho­tel is at once luxe and un­der­stated. Rooms are airy and light, many boast­ing spec­tac­u­lar views of the iconic Hol­ly­wood sign and the Hol­ly­wood Hills. The out­door saline pool is the cen­tre­piece of the trop­i­cally land­scaped fourth floor ter­race (all of the ho­tel has in­cred­i­ble land­scap­ing), which also has amaz­ing el­e­vated city views. En­joy break­fast or lunch on the ter­race, then head to the ul­tra-Zen Four Sea­sons spa for one of its sig­na­ture treat­ments, like the Salt & Pep­per Body Scrub or Honey Dream im­mune- boost­ing ther­apy. In the evening, dine at Culina, which fea­tures clas­sic Ital­ian food with a twist ( Esquire named it one of L. A.’s best eats).

For the ul­ti­mate hon­ey­moon keep­sake, try the Four Sea­sons’ Suite Cal­i­for­nia Get­away, in which you en­joy a ses­sion with Fly­tog­ra­pher, an L. A. photo ser­vice that will help you cap­ture spe­cial mo­ments in iconic lo­ca­tions around the city. —Ali­son McGill
