Opening this month, Santa Monica Proper Hotel
Following the success of San Francisco Proper Hotel, the evolution of Proper continues amid the sun-drenched boulevards and sea breezes of L.A.’s cinematic Pacific coastline. Opening June, Santa Monica Proper Hotel emerges as an architectural wonder just seven blocks from the crashing waves of the ocean, spanning two stylistically disparate buildings linked by an artfully crafted bridge. With interior design by Kelly Wearstler, the hotel is a lesson in restrained elegance—think nature-inspired palettes, light hardwood floors, and organic textures augmented by artworks from emerging local artists.

These antioxidant-packed ingredients help fight the effects of ageing, irritation, and dryness—leaving skin that’s supple, moisturized, and instantly replenished from your long day.

Hotels and resorts across Asia are choosing to tread more lightly when it comes to their food footprint. From forming partnerships with nonprofits focused on food stability and opening new organic, sustainable restaurants to cultivating their own pesticide-free veggie patches on-site and rolling out new creative vegan menus, these hotels — in Taipei, Vietnam, Bali and Tokyo — are taking more conscious steps forward on the green food front.
