Star in Your Own Movie, Surf Like a Pro at The Peninsula Beverly Hills

June 10, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Peninsula Beverly HillsNow's your chance to make your very own Hollywood movie. The only AAA Five-Diamond and Mobil Five-Star hotel in Southern California for 15 consecutive years, The Peninsula Beverly Hills has launched some very special guest experiences as part of its Peninsula Acadamy-- everything from surfing to playing film star. These Academy programs reflect the Beverly Hills lifestyle, and are available within a few days' notice. (Of course, you may just want to relax and enjoy the newly-renovated Rooftop Garden Pool, Restaurant and Bar at this iconic luxury hotel.) Choose to create your own Hollywood movie and an Emmy-nominated producer and crew will film guests and their families sightseeing, shopping, surfing, relaxing by the pool-- or whatever suits your fancy while in Tinsel Town. The footage will be edited into a professional-quality movie that they can watch on DVD at home. Prices start at $2,500 per day. You can also "Discover Your Inner Surfer Dude," and learn to surf with Rod Samper, the surfer dude who taught Tom Cruise, Cindy Crawford and Harrison Ford and their families to surf. The hotel will transport guests by town car to Malibu for their private lesson, which will be followed by a picnic prepared by The Peninsula Beverly Hills' team of chefs. Prices start at $225 per person per hour.

Peninsula Beverly HillsOr learn to "Sound like a Star," and work with Bob Corff, the voice coach who taught Cate Blanchett to sound like Katherine Hepburn in "The Aviator," and Jake Gyllenhaal to sound like a cowboy in "Brokeback Mountain." Bob Corff also coaches top executives for Oscar-winning performances in the boardroom. Prices start from $185 for a one-hour session at The Corff Studio. The Peninsula Beverly Hills also offers the "West Coast Wellness Workout" so that you can get in shape with SHAPE magazine's "Best New Trainer of 2008"-- Alonzo Cannon, who has shaped up celebs including Colin Farrell. She will create customized fitness regimes for guests, and then lead them through it on the beach, on a trail in the Santa Monica Mountains or in the hotel's fitness center. Prices from $200 an hour.
