As you would expect from any Four Seasons, The Biltmore oozes class and sophistication whilst retaining the Spanish history of Santa Barbara. With its unassuming hotel exterior, set back from the Pacific and nestled amongst leafy palm trees, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in a private members club.
Away from the hubbub of town, The Biltmore lies low ensuring you have the most relaxing and exclusive of stays. Though distanced from the town, The Bitmore’s architecture echoes Santa Barbara’s Spanish roots with a nod to the decadence of the Gold Rush days. You are just a couple of hours away from the buzz of LA, but this little corner of the west coast has all the glamour to rival its Hollywood neighbour. The hotel also has an extremely exclusive Beach & Cabana Club across the road, which offers guests access to a spa and beautiful pool that looks out to sea.
The 1924 building is curved around lush gardens, which not only means each room feels secluded but they are also unique in shape and size. The colour palette reflects the setting, with soft shades of green and yellow and the cool, tiled floors made cosy with sumptuous woven rugs. There is a hint of Spanish influence threaded throughout the décor, such as the pretty painted ceramic bathrooms and antique lamps. The result is a serene escape.
Why We Like It
The Bitlmore has been designed with incredible attention to detail that gives character, sophistication and a hint at the history of its dwelling place.
