In 1999, we transformed a forgotten architectural gem on a quiet corner of Beverly Hills into an exciting boutique hotel we called Avalon. Our very first property sparked two decades in hospitality and design, including our sister resort in the magical desert of Palm Springs.
Avalon flows with what we adore about creating, running, and staying in understated luxury hotels. Both share fresh perspectives on mid-century revival and modern design. Both properties are comfortable with the paradox of friendly glamour…of storied retreats for the here and now. A new-fashioned hideaway. That’s Avalon.
Dishes as simple as properly dressed market greens or decadent as lobster cloaked in cognac and cream speak to us. So do tiki punches. Here at our poolside jewelbox, in the land of perennial sunshine, we can’t help but dive into our fresh supply of colorful produce to revive the classic American and European cuisine we love with a lighter touch.
Try something new or find comfort in discovering your “usual.” Visit us poolside at Chi Chi. This leisurely go-to is also a chef-driven destination, thanks to Jason Moffitt’s fresh, balanced California menu. So match your desert mood, be it health or indulgence or somewhere in between. Here, we add rum to our coconuts. That’s simply how we lunch.
Our lovely hotel was originally known as the Estrella (“star” in Spanish). Fittingly, Estrella Spa is the star that illuminates Avalon from the inside out: our caring core of health and wellness experience. In this quiet retreat for indulgence, play, learning, growth and comfort, our menu shines this season with new treatments and custom experiences for you.
Over the years, we have hosted all manner of nuptials: day and night, simple and extravagant, eloping couples and buyout destination weddings with hot air ballooning…We like to think of ourselves as more than a hotel, restaurant or wedding venue. Behind the scenes, we are your trusted advisors, and our joy is making things happen.
Our meetings and events offer flexible sophistication. Distinctive breakout meetings might include active recreation: hiking, hot air ballooning and golfing on PGA-caliber courses; or, relaxing on-site over a treatment at Estrella Spa. Our expert planning and banquet professionals transform meetings, conferences or corporate retreats with specialized services, diverse custom menus and off-premises activities that reflect the charms of our storied desert, home to presidents and statesmen and architects alike.
Avalon Beverly Hills’ collection of design-forward event venues exude bold spirit, both indoors and out. Whether hosting a small business meeting, reception, press event, wardrobe fitting or casting session, there’s a beautiful space to suit your needs. From the private boardroom to the penthouse’s expansive terrace, our clients enjoy the fresh tastes of Viviane catering, complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property, and the dedicated services of our on-site event planner.
