MALIBU, Calif., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just over a year after Malibu Beach Inn was purchased by Mani Brothers Real Estate Group, the hotel has undergone a full transformation by acclaimed designer Waldo Fernandez and has recently joined The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd., a curated collection of independent and distinct luxury hotels.
"We are honored to be a part of The Leading Hotels of the World as they uphold the highest standards of quality and prestige in our industry," said Gregory Day, General Manager of Malibu Beach Inn and President of Hospitality at Mani Brothers Real Estate Group. "I am humbled to once again be affiliated with this amazing brand partner, and am confident that Malibu Beach Inn will continue to impress the most discerning guests, and will remain the best-in-class at offering the California coastal luxury experience."
Since Day's appointment in September 2015, he has worked to bring the quality of service and offerings at Malibu Beach Inn to a level previously never experienced at the site. Staff uniforms were replaced with designs by local brand-partner Johnnie-O®, while beach attendants are appointed in popular athleisure brand lululemon athletica®, another unique partnership sourced by Day.
The luxury property's restaurant, CBC (Carbon Beach Club), now offers the finest quality locally sourced ingredients along with an impressive wine collection, curated by on-site sommelier Laurie Sutton, which was a recipient of the 2016 Wine Spectator Award. Los Angeles based mixologist Josh Curtis was also brought on as CBC's Bar Director to concoct innovative, fun and fresh seasonal cocktails.
"We look forward to forging new local partnerships over the coming years and remaining a staple in the Malibu community," Day said. "A huge amount of credit goes to our owners Simon and Daniel Mani. For without their vision, insight and trust none of these accomplishments would have been possible this past year."
Another significant addition over the past year is the recent transformation of the property by world renowned designer Waldo Fernandez, who redesigned the property from all main areas, to the interior and exterior of CBC, to each of the 47-well appointed guest rooms. Each guest room, all with an ocean view, now offers custom furniture designed by Fernandez along with beautiful European Oak flooring, raw rift White Oak paneling, crisp white walls, contemporary lighting, and soft, luxurious natural fiber fabrics sourced from Belino in Italy.
"We are delighted to welcome the Malibu Beach Inn to our collection of uncommon, independent luxury hotels," said Deniz Omurgonulsen, Vice President, Membership, The Leading Hotels of the World. "Embodying the tastefully beach-chic California lifestyle, it immediately immerses its guests in the destination, providing sophisticated curious travelers with an enriching and distinctly local experience."
