8 Tips for a Luxury Weekend in Los Angeles

When you think of LA, you likely think of glamour, pampering, excess and celebrity lifestyles which, for many of us, is not part of our everyday lives. While it is perfectly doable to take a vacation in LA with a budget, often the full LA experience requires a little more exuberance. If you’re heading to this beautiful city, why not take the opportunity to live it up as much as possible? Do as the celebrities have been doing for years and push the boat out with these eight fabulous tips for a luxury weekend in the City of Angels.

1. Stay at the Four Seasons Hotel

Where you stay in LA is hugely important if you want to do as the rich and famous do, and stay at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, is the obvious choice. Everyone who is anyone frequents this 5-star hotel. If you have the cash and the inclination, why not take it to the next level and book yourself into the Presidential Suite. This penthouse apartment includes two king-size beds, two bathrooms, eight balconies, a modern kitchen, walk-in rain shower (which can turn into a steam room) and panoramic views of Downtown LA and the Hollywood Hills.

2. Rent a Fancy Car

Traveling around LA or along the Pacific Coast on foot is not recommended so if you’re going to rent a car, do it in style. Luckily, you can rent a Rolls Royce, Ferrari, Lamborghini or a Porsche from luxury car dealerships.

3. Spend Some Cash at Brentwood Country Mart

The outdoor shopping center in the famous Brentwood area has been a favorite celebrity shopping destination for decades. Hollywood divas such as Shirley Temple and Elizabeth Taylor loved this place, and it’s still as popular with celebrities today. The Country Mart boasts boutiques from all around the world.

4. Do Lunch at Spago in Beverly Hills

Time for lunch? Head to Wolfgang Puck’s world-famous restaurant, Spago, to enjoy the finest seasonal dishes. The best way to experience this farm-to-table Californian cuisine is to choose the tasting menu for a selection of dishes.

5. Cruise the Coast on a Luxury Private Yacht

You can’t call it a luxury holiday until you’ve sailed in a private yacht, and the 145-foot Sun Coast Super Yacht from Luxury Liners is ideal. It will accommodate up to 12 guests and includes four staterooms, two indoor dining areas, three outdoor dining areas, two salons, several flat-screen TVs, Jacuzzi, gym and helipad. You can also book a private chef to cook for you and your guests during your cruise along the coast.

6. Take in the Sunset from a Helicopter

If you haven’t seen all you want to of LA from the yacht, hop in a helicopter and take in the rest of the city’s incredible sights and a breath-taking sunset. Elite Helicopter Tour’s All-star VIP tour lasts 90 minutes as you see all the main attractions from the Hollywood Sign to Griffith Park Observatory, Malibu Pier and the Playboy Mansion.

7. Head to the Regent Theater

A night at the theater is one of the best ways to spend an evening in LA. The Regent Theater presents a huge range of productions from live music, plays and the biggest stars of the moment. Find out what’s coming up at TicketSales.com.
