The AKA 'Mobile Suite' Brings Glam to West Coast Road Tripping
Are your vacation getaways guided by the criteria of “excellent Instagram potential”? Are you a Brooklyn-based fashion blogger seeking temporary solitude to crank out your “first novel on the liberating potential of wanderlust”? Are you into road trips, but not cramped cars that smell like Interstate lunches? AKA has something amazing for you.
Well, for all of us, really – if only to behold from afar. The luxury brand of long stay accommodations just announced its first ever AKA Mobile Suite, a spacious Airsteam that has been decked out to the upscale expectations of an AKA resident: think plush bedding, a flat-panel TV and iPod docks, Bulgari bath amenities, and splashes of colorful accouterment from fashion designer Trina Turk, who will also offer “VIP discounts” on a road trip-ready wardrobe purchased from her LA showroom. (Most important: A full bathroom with shower. No sneaking into boondock YMCAs to rinse off.)
Right now the Mobile Suite is only available to residents at the AKA Beverly Hills, but the good news is, that property recently lowered its minimum stay policy to accommodate weeklong bookings. (Property rates start at $435 per night and drop for longer stays.)
Rates for the Mobile Suite itself start at $6,000 for a five-day journey up the coast, which includes two nights of “exclusive glamping” at Santa Barbara’s Sunstone Vineyards, which offers sweeping Santa Ynez Valley, and two nights overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the Ocean Mesa Campground. Additional decadent detours can be arranged, including canyon concerts, spa treatments, ocean kayaking, and wine tastings. Now hit the road.
