There’s Really Nothing in LA Like Nobu Ryokan

Head forth into the desert now, child.

In your quest for actuality. Insight. And a blistering Radiohead set.

Upon returning, just know that you have Nobu’s Malibu place to restore you back to life.

More precisely, Nobu Ryokan, a heavenly wedge of Japanese tranquility and borderline absurd levels of personal service spread above Carbon Beach, now taking reservations for an April 28 grand opening.

You’re looking at 16 distinctive, elegant quarters you’ll really want to sleep, reflect and awaken in. Traditionally tailored in tatami and teak, accented in esteemed artworks and bearing soaking tubs, fireplaces and Italian bedding.

TMZ will not squeeze past this colossal wooden gate. Lookie-loos from Soho House will not invade the pool. Nor will many mortals not born a noble or a Buffett probably see it. Reservations involve making an inquiry with a two-night minimum. The inquiry exists so that they can create a personal experience that’s intricately tailored to you.

But once the door opens, you won’t lift a finger. The people running things here are very used to making incredible things happen for certain humans.

When you leave your room, it’s cleaned immediately. Your personal preferences are discreetly chronicled, so they’ll know what you want before you do. And need an 11th-hour Nobu Malibu reservation?

Well... hopefully they can pull some strings.
