A Luxe Urban Getaway in Long Beach
In Long Beach, we know sunshine is the best medicine and a good ocean breeze puts a mind at ease.
Step 1: The Stay
Check in at the Hotel Maya – a DoubleTree by Hilton and soak in waterfront accommodations with unrivaled views of Queensway Bay and Long Beach’s cityscape.
Where Mayan mystique meets urban chic, the open-air concept resort with lush, tropical landscaping has 199-rooms, most with balconies or direct patio access to a sandy and secluded beach, huge fire pits and a heated pool with floating cabanas. The extravagant décor and picturesque views make Hotel Maya the most romantic setting around, and a popular wedding venue, too.
Step 5: Brunch
You won’t have to go far from your hotel room for the not-to-be-missed brunch at Hotel Maya’s Latin-infused Fuego restaurant and lounge, where the spirited cuisine is served al fresco on a patio so close to the water you might feel the sea spray.
Weekend brunch is a hot commodity for visitors and locals alike, with an innovative menu created by renowned Executive Chef Victor Juarez, a native Salvadorian, who provides upscale takes on foods that transport your taste buds direct to Cuba or Mazatlan without having to go through customs.
Step 6: Yoga
Before you leave town and hop into freeway traffic, clear your mind and stretch your body with Yoga on the Bluff, a free and relaxing workout overlooking the beach. Classes take place every day just across the street from Bixby Park from 11 a.m. to Noon, and are incredibly popular among locals and visitors alike.
