Once the obligatory first wave of Pretty Woman induced excitement goes down, we arrived by the pool (modelled after Sophia Loren’s) and were hit by a second wave of excitement mixed – we had arrived in paradise, little did we know paradise was just around the corner in Beverly Hills. We were escorted to our private cabana with its own little lounge by the attentive staff and from then on they proceeded to spoil us rotten all afternoon.
After a couple hours spent
relaxing working hard by the pool, we headed to the spa where I had a Diamond Rose body treatment (exclusive to the property) which is a divine body scrub, moisturising treatment and massage that will leave you, 90mn later, with baby smooth skin and a happy glow.
This is the cabana experience at the Beverly Wilshire! For $450 for the day, you get to feel like a Princess (or Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman if you prefer). If you want to treat one of your best friends on a special day, this is definitely a place I recommend. Perfect indulgent day out with your bestie… Or if you want to be more traditional about it, fine – feel free to take your partner instead.
