What makes Santa Monica a chosen holiday destination for wellness-seeking Indian travellers?
Santa Monica is Los Angeles’ beach city, making us a great base for a nice Southern California visit. We are a small city that is highly explorable either on bike or on foot, and with 3.5 miles of coastline there are plenty of natural spaces to relax and enjoy abundance of fresh air, wide beaches, and ocean breezes.
Yoga is a way of life for Santa Monicans so Indian travellers may enjoy a Californian take on yoga with their toes in the sand or on the world-famous Santa Monica Pier. With four weekly farmers markets, healthy eating is also the way of life in Santa Monica. Of course, our many luxury properties have spas that will rejuvenate the weary traveller, both for overnight guests as well as day visitors.
