As Cali cools down, the seasonal shindigs heat up, and, hallelujah, if it isn’t finally time to crack open your chic winter wardrobe (even if the mercury hasn’t dropped quite far enough to justify it). Providing the ideal opportunity to swaddle yourself, The Peninsula turns the lights low and ramps the festivities up with its special Cozy Cabana offering.
Hunker down in one of just 12 heated poolside havens – complete with oh-so soft cashmere quilts – and soak up the glittering Century City skyline in the distance.
Dishy delights come courtesy of executive chef David Codney, whose creative twist on childhood campfire favourites – prepared tableside on a traditional charcoal hibachi grill – include elevated S’mores. Indulgent and unequivocally comforting, the surprisingly pretty pud is carefully crafted from crunchy housemade graham crackers, creamy milk chocolate and fluffy vanilla marshmallows.
It’s not all nursery throwbacks though. The experience also includes some decidedly grown-up welcome cocktails, a bottle of wine and – if you’re feeling particularly plucky for a December evening – after-dark toe-dipper usage. And the best bit? You can snuggle up with your significant other or share the moment with as many as three of your friends. Now, we know what we want for Christmas!
