Rosewood manages almost two dozen one-of-a-kind luxury properties in a variety of countries, each hotel embracing the brand’s “A Sense of Place” philosophy to reflect the individual location’s history, culture and sensibilities. The Rosewood collection includes some of the world’s most prominent hotels and resorts, not least The Carlyle in New York and Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, as well as new classics such as Rosewood Beijing and Rosewood London, both award-winning properties in their own right. Located around 80 miles northwest of Los Angeles, Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito, which is slated to open this summer, will be the brand’s third property in California.
Montecito is situated within the county of Santa Barbara and is one of America’s most affluent and exclusive areas. The region is renowned for its stunning landscape, amiable year-round climate and spectacular residential architecture. Rosewood’s resort will open on the site of the former Miramar Beach Hotel – an important 100-year-old landmark in the local community, and a once-cherished destination for bygone beach getaways – and will serve as both a world-class destination and a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
Spread over nearly 16 acres of prime beachfront real estate, Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito will offer 122 guestrooms and 48 suites, many of which will be located within single-story cottages and bungalows. Guests will be treated to every service and luxury they have come to expect from a Rosewood property, including an oceanside bar and restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a signature restaurant, four further eateries, two swimming pools, a deluxe spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, beach club and screening room. And whilst early morning yoga on the beach and sunset walks by the sea will be the norm, the most exciting part of Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito, is that it will be the first resort in Santa Barbara to offer beachfront suites, allowing guests to walk directly from their lodgings onto the pristine sand.
