Suite celebration

Settle into one of our popular Canyon Suites and enjoy a glass of champagne together on your private terrace, before taking a dip in your very own plunge pool. For an extra special touch we can also arrange a bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and rose petals at turndown.

Prepare to be pampered

On honeymoon you deserve the very best so why not treat yourselves to our Hotel Bel-Air Spa private Enclave Suite, complete with a rain shower, hydrotherapy bathtub, and a shaded patio with soothing waterfall. Following your relaxing spa treatments, enjoy brunch and mimosas under the sun on the enclave’s private patio.

Take to the skies

Book a helicopter ride around Los Angeles taking in thrilling sights such as the famous Hollywood sign, Griffith Observatory, and the glorious coastline. It’s a fabulous way to explore the city from an exciting new angle.

Romantic picnic

For a romantic fairy tale experience we have just the thing. Whether relaxing beside Swan Lake, finding a secluded spot in the hotel’s enchanting grounds, or planning a day out, chef Puck and his team can create a gourmet picnic for you to indulge in.

Head to the beach

For the most romantic afternoon at the beach head out to El Matador beach, ten miles northwest of Malibu, and enjoy some of the clearest water in Los Angeles. On your way back, stop off at Malibu Family Wines for wine tasting and live music.

Sunset over LA

Make the most the amazing weather that Los Angeles is famous for by heading to Griffith Park. Time it right and your reward for hiking up to the popular Griffith Observatory will be the most spectacular sunset with panoramic city views.

Dinner for two

Let us set up a romantic dinner in your room, on your private patio, or under the gazebo beside Swan Lake. Choose your menu and leave the rest to us, this is your time to be completely spoilt.

See and be seen

Celebrate like a star at The Beverly Hills Hotel’s famed Polo Lounge restaurant. Whether it’s sharing an intimate moment in one of the cosy patio enclaves or a toast around the table in the main dining room, enjoy an evening to remember at this iconic institution.

Cruise along the coast

Hire your own yacht for the day and take a cruise along the coast. It’s an ideal opportunity for a spot of sightseeing, sunbathing and partying. Let the adventure begin.

Raise your glass

End your honeymoon with a relaxed evening at our Hotel Bel-Air’s Bar. Settle into a cosy spot next to the wood-burning fireplace and listen to live music. When it comes to drinks, celebrate with a cocktail or too. For newlyweds, our bartenders highly recommend a Monroe’s Passion or Show Me Love!
