The Naikan Experience
With a welcoming spirit and an intuitive energy, Naikan has been home to many artisans, writers, designers, actors and modern-day craftspeople. Perfectly suited to individual reflection or friendly gatherings, the Naikan location is you’re inviting yet private, flexible, and secure oasis in the sky, away from the busy city life below. Throw the glass doors open to the fresh breezes with total privacy, blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors, thanks to the perfect southern California climate.
YESTERDAY AND TODAY
Naikan neighbor, the legendary Hollywood restaurant, Yamashiro (meaning “Mountain Palace”), was the dream of the Bernheimer brothers who wanted to build a private estate to house their vast and priceless collection of Asian art. Their dream finally became a reality in 1914. Hundreds of skilled craftsman were brought over from the Orient to create this resplendent teak and cedar mansion with carved rafters lacquered in gold, exotic gardens with over 30,000 varieties of trees and shrubs, waterfalls, a miniature Japanese village with miniature bronze houseboats floating on tiny canals, and even a private zoo.
The Naikan House was originally built as a temple for the Yamashiro craftsmen who made the Bernheimer brothers dreams come to life. You will feel a sense of calm and peacefulness the instant you step through the gate. This is intrinsic to The Naikan House as part of its rich history. Dreams do come true.
Today, the fully-furnished Naikan House retains strong Asian influences in both architecture and character, yet is also very much at home in the 21st century with high-tech innovation. Considering all of the amenities listed below, you won’t want to leave The Naikan House and you don’t have to. Enjoy healthy, nutritious food from Comfort Zone or fresh sushi from Yamashiro delivered right to your door. Because Naikan House has contracted with world-famous Green Bliss Eco Spa, roll out the welcome mat for your private Yoga instructor or masseuse before you head to your own private box seats at the Hollywood Bowl to enjoy music under the stars. When it’s time to retire, pull the blackout shades on your windows and enjoy restful, uninterrupted sleep, night or day. Weekly maid service keeps The Naikan House immaculate.
