Miramar Beach in Montecito, California

by Patricia Nugent



Set on the American Riviera along one of Southern California’s most beautiful and exclusive coastlines, Forbes Five-Star Hotel & Spa Rosewood Miramar Beach offers a captivating estate-style atmosphere and the finest leisure amenities.

At Rosewood Miramar Beach, sunrise yoga on the beach and sunset walks along the water's edge bookend sun-drenched days. And in between there are signature experiences that make this the quintessential California escape, from a culinary series to group-guided hikes and private charter sailing cruises. Often referred to the “American Riviera” the hotel is situated on an exclusive oceanfront stretch of Montecito, where the fresh sea air will, at once, both relax and invigorate you.

Strung along lush landscapes, the resort serves up the epitome of modern beach style within 123 rooms and 35 suites overlooking the Pacific Ocean or meticulously manicured gardens. As the perfect complement to this breathtaking beauty, guests can also bask in the curated in-house art collection, which boasts works by Norman Rockwell, Mel Bochner and Pablo Picasso.

For those seeking the most heavenly slumber, luxuriate in the new Bryte Sleep Suites. Restorative beds are designed to offer heating and cooling personalized to each sleep partner’s profile, with Circadian Climate technology directly impacting the individual’s core body temperature.

Within the hotel, Sense, A Rosewood Spa, offers its own take on specialty treatments inspired by local surroundings. Seasonal treatments and packages include the indulgent Be Mine Rose and Citrus Massage with organic lemon healing oil and a foot scrub and exfoliation, followed by collagen foot mask, as well as the CBD Foot Scrub & Love Massage with a small-batch CBD sugar scrub infused with organic botanicals, cranberry, lavender and sweet orange, followed by massage and acupressure. And perhaps the most native of treatments here is the Montecito Sage Purification, which includes a body scrub and warm, cocooning wrap of wild sage oil to leave muscles renewed and senses reconnected to the earth.

There’s nothing sweeter than a beachy picnic, and the cognoscenti at Miramar Beach Resort have taken that next level with four inspired picnic experiences. Each picnic conjures a distinctive atmosphere, from a whimsical escape to the South of France, to an earthy and music-filled afternoon. Whether you opt for a picnic experience or just want to chill on your own, the resort offers beach butler service, and a variety of other beach living options. rosewoodhotels.com
