When Shutters on the Beach first opened its doors back in 1993, it instantly became the preferred seaside escape for celebs and cognoscenti. Fast-forward twenty years and the boutique Santa Monica hotel still enjoys a reputation as a haven from LA’s flash and flamboyance, for both locals and out-of-towners alike. Now, to commemorate its first two decades, Shutters is celebrating with limited-edition mementos, specials and the chance to win a luxe weekend of pampering at the beachfront retreat.
To start, the 20th Birthday Package offers all the comforts that guests have come to expect from a stay at Shutters – with a few extra birthday perks thrown in, including two tickets to the famous ferris wheel on the Santa Monica Pier, spa treatments to ensure you leave well rested, and a limited-edition James Perse shirt or other apparel to commemorate your stay. For an added splash, turndown includes 20 yellow balloons and Vosges chocolate truffles, created exclusively for the hotel.
Because Shutters has become renowned for its beach style during its first two decades, the hotel has tapped local designer Clare Vivier to design a limited-edition canvas beach tote, available exclusively at The Cottage, the hotel’s gift shop or at ShuttersBeachStyle.com. The bag, adorned with Shutters’ signature yellow and white stripes, features a detachable mini leather clutch in royal blue to coordinate essentials so you’ll be both the best accessorized and most organized on the beach.
If you’re feeling lucky, you just might find yourself enjoying a stay on the house. Twenty grand-prize winners will each win a posh night by the sea, simply by indulging in the purchase of Vosges Shutters Collection truffles and discovering that their wrapper holds a special ticket to a night in a coveted ocean-view room. Even non-winners can rejoice, as they indulge in the decadence of “Canyon Sous-Marin Salted Caramel” truffles topped with ocean sea-foam salt.
