Southern California Major paradise.

Southern California Major paradise.Los Angeles Travel

On my last weekend in California, I discovered a major paradise.
I’ve heard a lot from friends in LA about the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel but I wanted to make my own experience and share it with my best friend Solène.
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean from atop a seaside bluff, the resort invites you to experience Laguna Beach fully. It was a first for me and I loved the Dana Point atmosphere!
We shared a beautiful garden view room which was perfect for my puppy Greengo to run like crazy, just in front of our terrace. Yes, the Ritz Carlton is so welcoming with pets and that was really important to me.
On the first day, we walked down to Dana Point beach and we even swam in the Pacific, having the best time.
The highlight of our stay was, for sure, the sunset, spent at 180 Blu, Overlooking the Pacific Ocean from 150 feet above with live music.  A moment to remember…
Later on, we had dinner at Raya, still facing the Ocean and we had the most yummy black cod! You should definitely try it on the menu.
We had this typical American cliché just before sleeping : s’mores by our room campfire while listening to the OC music! Felt straight back to summer camp in West Virginia and loved it.
On the next morning, I started with a yoga wake up, facing the Pacific and, just after breakfast at Raya, Solène & I experienced the best experience so far… Michele the Concierge, booked us a private surfing class with Girl in the Curl. We met Mary for a 2 Hours class and we absolutely LOVED it. The temperature was perfect, the instructor so helpful & talented that we both stood up really quick! I MUST try again very soon.
Few words to tell you that I really enjoyed my experience at Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. Definitely one of the most beautiful Hotel in Cali. I miss it already…

Palm Springs dream called Korakia.

Palm Springs dream called Korakia.Palm Springs Travel

During my get away to Palm Springs, I discovered a unique and wonderful place. It was my 3rd time in the Californian desert but my very first time at the stunning Korakia Pensione. Everything there is a little piece of dream.
Restored in 1989, Dar Marroc was renamed Korakia and crafted into a Mediterranean-style resort.
The Hotel, now housed in two lovingly restored historic villas, consisting of bungalows, guesthouses, gardens and pools.
We stayed in the Marrakech Villa . A large, sunny, upper-level suite with extraordinary views of the mountains, pool and courtyard. The bed was amazing! I think I fell asleep at 10pm which is extraordinary for me. But before my dreams, we shared a glass of wine at the fire place… And there, you feel soooo far away. Just in heaven.
The next day, after a lovely complimentary breakfast, we spent some time at a (almost) private pool before heading back to LA (only 2 hours drive!)
The New York Times has called the Korakia « One of the sexiest hotels in America » I call it a forever paradise where I’ll for sure come back asap, as a mini moon maybe?

A day in Venice.

A day in Venice.Los Angeles My style

Plusieurs conseils si vous passez une journée à Venice Beach, lors d’un séjour en Californie.
– une rue : Abbot Kinney qui vous propulse dans une ambiance chill & vintage avec des petites boutiques de déco et créateurs américains.
– un restaurant : en fait deux, puisqu’ils viennent de la meme chaine. Gjelina, en plein Abbot Kinney pour les meilleurs pizzas et un petit jardin caché et si joli. Gjusta pour un lunch moins formel avec leurs délicieux sandwichs et salades faites en live, un pain encore meilleur qu’en France… C’est dire.
– Un soin : Plutôt une experience unique avec le masseur / thérapeute Auggie au spa Caudalie qui a récemment ouvert. Il est absolument incroyable comme masseur. Surtout après les 58 cours de Soul Cycle dans la semaine 😉
Une jolie boutique et deux cabines. Idéal pour booker un soin corps ou visage avec une copine.

Obligée de s’arrêter devant ce paradis du bonbon à Newport Beach sur la route de LA.
Moi qui étais faaaaaan de la série The OC, quel rêve de faire un stop sur la plage au milieu des palmiers et des cyclistes.
Hâte de vous raconter mon séjour au Pelican Hill Resort qui est juste le plus bel hotel de l’histoire des hotels.

***

We had to stop by this candy paradise in Newport Beach on our way back to LA.
I was soooooo crazy about the series The OC, so it was kind of a big deal to make a quick stop on the beach between palm trees and bikers.
Can’t wait to tell you about my stay at Pelican Hill Resort. Basically the most beautiful hotel i’ve ever seen.

Passage obligé, sur Sunset Boulevard chez In-N-Out, un fast food aussi beau que bon. Etant donné l’heure du shooting (10 du mat’ ) j’ai juste commandé le petit chapeau… mais je regrette déjà.

You must pass by In-N-Out, in Sunset Blvd, while you’re in LA. Huge, beautiful and delicious fast food. As Solene chose to shoot at 10 am, I only ordered the little cap… But I still regret it.
