Now, having just completed a restoration of its Cabana Café and private cabanas, the beloved “Pink Palace” provides a new generation with modern day luxuries in a setting reminiscent of Hollywood’s golden age.
World renowned designer, Adam Tihany, has led the masterful redesign of the Cabana Café, private cabanas and the addition of a new Pool Terrace, now allowing for private parties at the hotel’s famed pool.
With its classic brick deck, towering palm trees and striped chaise lounges, the Cabana Cafe’s retro-style continues to be the backdrop for a vibrant poolside dining scene that now boasts a new show kitchen, pizza oven, separate bar area and overhead trellis.
Lunch offerings include the Sunset Club Sandwich, Grilled Marinated Prawn Salad and Pineapple Express Wood-Fired Pizza. Improved lighting and heating, combined with an extensive kitchen upgrade, allow for the launch of dinner service this fall.
Executive Chef Kaleo Adams’ Mediterranean-influenced California menu will feature small plates as well as larger entrees and an eclectic wine list will showcase selections from small California producers. Guests relaxing poolside will also enjoy the delivery of food items directly to their loungers and chairs.
The 11 newly refreshed cabanas convey a welcoming residential feel while paying homage to the hotel’s iconic design elements. Fresh colors, soothing neutral tones, signature pink and green accents, designer hand-painted murals and comfortable furnishings are among the cabanas’ new features.
Technology upgrades include private phones, 46-inch flat screen HD TVs, ceiling fans, accent lighting and premium wireless internet access.
A variety of daytime packages have been introduced, including Cabana Couples and Cabana Chill, and evening packages will be available in the fall.
Views from the Pool Terrace
A Pool Terrace has also been added, allowing for additional bi-level lounging in the pool area. A grand staircase was constructed to connect the poolside ground level with the upper terrace, allowing guests to be easily transported between the two locations.
The creation of the Pool Terrace now allows for private functions and can accommodate groups and events up to 100 people. Special complimentary amenities are offered to hotel guests lounging poolside, including refreshing mists, sunglass cleaning, popsicles and blankets.
