Exploring the perks is the fun of it all: A challenging workout, a soothing yoga class on the fitness terrace, a facial treatment at Surya Spa (opening this winter). Access the panoramic rooftop pool and bar/lounge, and curl up by the fireplace or cabana. Wander the lobby and browse the library–a contrasting social nexus. Hit the beach for a surf, swim, volleyball, or bike ride–all the Proper toys at the ready.
In addition to the 2,000-square-foot fitness center, yoga terrace, and Surya Spa, Santa Monica’s wellness options are endless: SoulCycle, yoga studios, barre, pilates, and the legendary Santa Monica Stairs and Rings nearby. Jog down at Palisades Park, overlooking PCH and Santa Monica Beach. Borrow a bicycle and cruise the beach path to Venice. Learn to surf? Volleyball? Yoga? Proper Concierge leads the way. Located on the second floor, our gymnasium offers:
The only Proper rooftop pool on the Westside boasts epic views of surf, sand and the city. Choose your perch or spend a day experiencing them all—the pool, the cabanas, the circular bar and fireplace, or Chef Kaleo’s indoor-outdoor Mediterranean inspired restaurant.
Proper has partnered with Martha and Roger Soffer’s internationally renowned Ayurvedic spa, for a rare collaboration. High-end service and treatments, wild-harvest oils, and consultation are the basis for individually curated programs that follow 10,000 years of Indian wellness principles. For hotel guests and locals, a menu including uniquely therapeutic massage, steam, oil treatments, herbs, food, yoga, meditation, and education, all support physical, mental and spiritual well being.

With the Pacific Ocean only blocks away, we have the gear to help you make the most of the sun and sand: From beach volleyball to surfboards, bicycles (Electra and Rad Electric Fat Bikes) to beach towels. Cruise the famed bike path and head north to beautiful Will Rogers State Beach; or venture South through SaMo to Venice, Marina Del Rey… All the way toward surf spots like the Venice Pier and El Porto.
Welcome to Proper living. Through curiosity, love and a mix of our favorite influencers, Proper offers original experiences and activities curated for that true local feel.

We welcome dogs at all Proper hotels, provide in-room feeding bowls and treats, and donate a portion of the pet fee to Best Friends Animal Society, whose mission is to pair loving owners with homeless pets. Nearby you’ll find plenty of options for Fido to stretch his legs: The beach path, Palisades Park path and an off-leash park on Main Street to mingle with local pups.
Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused, energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is an inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From music and art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
