Our private Los Angeles tour guests staying at the Terranea have the best of all possible worlds. They enjoy a secluded first class hotel on the coast of the Palos Verdes Peninsula facing out toward Catalina Island, easy access to Trump National Golf Course if the resort links are not sufficiently challenging, and a pleasant drive north to Los Angeles (or we can arrange to pick everyone one up at the nearby landing pad in one of our luxury helicopters and begin a private custom tour that way). There are four pools, eight restaurants, a 9-hole par-3 golf course, spa and water activities – in other words there is something to do at the resort for all ages and interests. You probably did not know they have a falconry program they would enjoy making available to you. Hiking, biking and horseback riding are other ways to stay active and enjoy the beauty of the ocean, the clear air and the views of the tall rolling hills of the peninsula and the island in the distance over the sea. Plus, we are here to show you Hollywood and Beverly Hills and all things Los Angeles in whatever way most entertains and informs you.
Like a matching set, the downtown Ritz-Carlton is paired with its ever-so-classy sister resort located about 14 miles away on the water in Marina del Rey. Near both Los Angeles International Airport and the Santa Monica airport (where we can land our helicopters for private luxury tours of the airborne variety), the resort is also walking distance to the Venice Boardwalk and a lovely bicycle or skate ride (maybe even a Segway for the adventurous) along the beach to Santa Monica. You can also just stay in the resort for gourmet dining, a quality fitness center, pool, spa and all the luxury amenities you expect from the Ritz-Carlton. It’s no wonder professional sports teams stay here while they are competing in Los Angeles. And we do not want to forget to acknowledge our great friends on the concierge staff who know everything we do about Los Angeles (OK, maybe a bit more in some regards). We enjoy every opportunity we get to talk with them when we are at the hotel to pick up their guests for grand sightseeing tours around Los Angeles — studios, celebrity homes, historic and not so historic local destinations in Hollywood and Beverly Hills and up the coast to Malibu. Perfect weather year round on the largest man-made marina in the nation, yes, this is where we would stay when visiting Los Angeles and southern California.
