THE RITZ-CARLTON MARINA DEL REY
The Ultimate Sand Castle Retreat
by Bonnie Carroll

The Ritz-Carlton Marina Del RayFollowing some amazing changes, the Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey has become one of the most elegant and state-of-the-art hotels in the Los Angeles area.

Not only are the rooms and suites five star, but the service is outstanding. From the minute you enter the lobby you feel the presence of a team who wish to make your visit memorable.

The Ritz-Carlton Marina Del RayAll room views of the Marina del Rey and the pool area are breath taking, and the pool area is perfect for sunning or afternoon cocktails and light fare at the Wave. This seems to be a favorite spot for corporate parties, as their was a stylish food and drink service being set up during my visit. The overall design look of the pool is quite chic, and blends perfectly with the marina scene. Directly in front of the pool area is the Ritz-Carlton Botique Spa, and it is not only brimming with wonderful gift items and the very latest body products, but it is a peaceful hide-a-way where guests can unwind while enjoying some of the unique signature treatments offered.

The more intriguing spa menu items include a "red carpet ready" repair and relaxation treatment; the exclusive"Glamour and Glitz" to bring out your radiant skin, using Murad products, and a "Real Gentleman" treatment just for men. Naturally, they offer all the latest massage and skin treatments, along with Murad hand and feet therapies that are superb. Prada Beauty skin care products and techniques are offered exclusively at The Ritz-Carlton.

The Ritz-Carlton Marina Del RayThis hotel venue is not only for 'land lovers'', it has been a favorite destination for local and international ocean travelers and their families since its inception. The Marina del Rey is home to a bevy of luxury yachts, and is frequently visited by sailors passing through. The hotel offers them the comfort and excellence they seek during their visit to the marina, as well as a home-away-from-yacht that offers the finest in all amenities.

Jer-ne (the act or instance of traveling from one place to another) restaurant and bar features spectacular marina views, and culinary influences from around the world that is authentically prepared, and presented in a contemporary fashion. Their menu offers all the excellent selections people expect from a Ritz-Carlton property, as well as special touches like picnic basket lunches for two, and a kids menu that is filled with the goodies little people crave.
