Following a multimillion-dollar makeover, the formerly low-key Malibu Beach Inn has reopened in high style. Outfitted in sleek glass, polished steel, and exotic woods, the luxury hotel on a 300-foot-long stretch of private coastline couples contemporary design with relaxed seaside ambience. Each of the 47 rooms boasts water views, balconies, and custom-made furnishings. Guests also gain access to the on-site Carbon Beach Club—with its concierge services and priority reservations in the dining room—for a nominal fee. At 22878 Pacific Coast Hwy. Call 310-456-6444; .
