LUXE Sunset Boulevard: Exquisitely Opulent and Simply Elegant

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

LUXE Sunset Boulevard compound, a hidden tranquil sanctuary, provides an escape, through the lushly landscaped gardens, soundproofing or magic, from the cacophony of the world outside.

With expansive suites, set against warm earth tones, sandstone and beige with complementary décor, soothing lines and luxurious bedding, the LUXE Sunset Boulevard accommodations are exquisitely opulent with an understated elegance.  LUXE Sunset offers open sitting rooms complete with desk units, sofas and additional lounging chairs harmonizing the well-appointed rooms.  Additionally, all suites are designed with ample lighting and mobile recharging stations. The LUXE accommodations feature full baths, double sinks and mirrors and other personalized amenities.

Located in Bel-air, LUXE Sunset Boulevard suites have been completely renovated with sleek European influence including minimizing fixtures such as flat screen televisions and mounted flat wall unit wet bars. In room sweet and dry snacks are also available.

While most amenities offered at the LUXE Sunset, an oasis in the middle of west Los Angeles, are contained within the compound, within a short walk from the main building are the incredible Spas services. LUXE Sunset offers a complete service spa with personal pampering, grooming and room packages.

LUXE Sunset Boulevard is the perfect location for any event with a Grand Ballroom that can accommodate up to three hundred guests and includes an adjacent patio gardens for indoor and open outdoor dancing under the stars. 

Having the opportunity to enjoy the delicious culinary creations from Chef Olivier Rousselle, who created wonderful Holiday magic as invited guests enjoyed a seasonal collection of hors d’oeuvres including Tuna Tartare with Salmon Caviar in mini wafer cones, Foie Gras with fig and Bacon fat, which unfortunately is no longer available, Kobe Beef Skewers, seasonal Squash soup, Cieviche with tortilla chips, and the sweetest, most delicious holiday martini known to man!  The LUXE Hotel Candy Cane Martini alone is worth the trip.

LUXE Sunset Chef Rousselle’s credentials are as impressive as his cuisine. Having studied under famed Parisian Chef Andre Daguin and Chef Bernard Ramouned, he also studied in London under his Chef Keith Podmore and Chef Keith Stanley where he served both Prince Charles and The Queen Mother and other members of the royal family. He serves locals and guests a menu of gourmet California French fusion and it is delicious.

Although I didn’t have the pleasure of a complete LUXE experience, the opportunities I’ve had to enjoy LUXE Sunset Boulevard have contributed to creating an extremely pleasurable encounter.

LUXE Worldwide Hotels has added four new boutique properties to their luxury portfolio.  The recent acquisition of the luxury hotels in Paris, Madrid and Toronto independently owned member properties. As with all LWH member hotels, the newly added properties boast individual character, unique design elements, historical or cultural significance, a distinct sense of place, and desirable locations.
