October 2012 – Newly opened in Santa Monica, from hospitality visionary Brent Bolthouse, The Bungalow is a new paradigm in romantic socialising and creative meeting space for the Westside of Los Angeles.

The new space provides exclusive guests with expansive ocean views, lush gardens, rustic interior designs, sweeping decks, stylish meeting spaces and intimate patios. This unique design is complimented by superior service, refreshing cocktails and an exclusive menu designed and provided by Chef Ray Garcoa’s FIG Restaurant at the hotel.
Bolthouse stated ‘After over a decade of searching the Westside of Los Angeles, I found the perfect partners and location in the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. My dream of a beachfront hideaway has come true with The Bungalow.’
