Anthony Baratta redesigns Oceana Beach Club Hotel, Santa Monica

JRK Hotel Group will be re-opening the beachfront Oceana Beach Club Hotel following a multi-million dollar renovation.

Oceana Beach Club Hotel now has a new lobby, reception area, pool deck and restaurant. American designer Anthony Baratta created a 1960s beach club vibe throughout the property. Baratta brings more than 30 years of design experience to the hotel’s transformation, following residential projects in Los Angeles , South Beach and the Hamptons.

The hotel’s dining area mixes natural materials and earthy tones, with retro elements.

Oceana Beach Club Hotel completes its transformation with the debut of Tower 8 by Two-Star Michelin Chef Josiah Citrin, known for MélisseRestaurant. A Santa Monica native, Citrin brings a local sensibility to a menu. Guests can also enjoy signature cocktails created by renowned mixologist, Pablo Moix, and wine pairings by Melisse’s resident sommelier, Brian Kalliel, in Tower 8.

Additionally, Oceana Beach Club Hotel recently welcomed the arrival of Christoph Moje as GM.

The new Oceana Beach Club Hotel is luxury beachside property featuring 70 suite-style accommodations overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
