Afar Magazine
An art deco icon, built in 1939 for the silver screen stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age, the Hotel Shangri-La is a beachfront beauty made for decadence.
Designed and constructed in the Art Deco style of the late 1930s, this Santa Monica landmark sits proudly on Ocean Avenue on a cliff just above the beach.
A slick and inviting boutique hotel overlooking the Pacific, with 71 exquisite rooms and lustrous interiors in an iconic Art Deco building that displays the curvy contours of an elegant ocean liner.
