The Surfrider Hotel is a boutique hotel at the iconic Surfrider Beach in Malibu, California. Originally built in 1953, The Surfrider is an icon in California’s history; it’s stood the test of time through the Golden Era, the 60’s and 70’s, a first stop on the PCH road trip. It’s the embodiment the California Dream. At the base of the Santa Monica Mountains and 20 minutes from Los Angeles, it’s the intersection between city and coast.
Founded by an Aussie, a Californian and an Italian, it was redesigned to feel like a guest’s own Californian Beach House and is comprised of 20 rooms, a roof deck overlooking Malibu Pier and First Point, a guest-only bar and restaurant, surfboard quiver with custom boards shaped for the wave out front and a sage green 1968 Land Rover.
