I T HASN'T YET BEEN OPEN A YEAR, BUT Orli, the luxury hospitality concept in the heart of La Jolla on Draper Avenue, already feels like a game- changer, both for La Jolla and the industry in general. To hear Orli's co-founder Maxwell Waitt talk of the destination he envisioned along with his sister and fellow co-founder Hailey Waitt, its beautiful simplicity might make it easy to have one of those why-didn't-I-think-of-that moments, but the reality is that the Orli's ethos is only simple in its brilliance. "Growing up, Hailey and I had the opportunity to do a lot of traveling with our parents, who love venturing to different far-flung destinations, [which] exposed us to a wide variety of different hospitality products from a young age," says Maxwell, sitting in Orli's private courtyard under the shade of a gnarled olive tree. "e common thread among those different experiences is that hospitality is a very special part of people's lives, and I think there was a lot of positive there, but I felt there was a way to do it better."
