Relaxation at the Beverly Hills Hotel just got even more glamorous. The luxe and legendary Southern California “Pink Palace”—where Walk of Fame royalty like Katharine Hepburn and the Beatles used to catch (or eschew) some R&R—tapped ELLE DECOR A-List designer Alexandra Champalimaud to reimagine its poolside cabanas.

For all 11 of the luxe huts, Champalimaud channeled the glamour of the hotel’s storied past. Each is covered by pink candy-striped awnings and include basket-woven chairs, terrazzo side tables, and pink bistro tables sourced from local design firm Bend Goods.

Inside each retro-chic tent is an homage to the Beverly Hills Hotel itself. The pink banana-leaf wallpaper is a fresh take on the iconic green Martinique print featured in the hotel’s Fountain Coffee Room and hallways. The pink version of the wallpaper by CW Stockwell was specially unearthed from the company’s archives to clad the cabanas—the first time the print has been used at the hotel since it was first hung in the 1940s.

The new cabanas help satisfy nostalgia for the Golden Age of Hollywood with a contemporary, beachy twist—plus flat-screen HDTVs and phone charging stations, of course.

“What distinguishes the Beverly Hills Hotel from all others is its magical history,” Champalimaud noted in a statement. “The cabanas hold prime seats to a mesmerizing show of beautiful people wading in clusters, chatting in groups as laughter permeates the air. You sit with your family, surrounded by beauty and laughter, and you watch as the amazing show goes on.”
