For those of us that have long dreamed of packing it all in and moving to the beach, Rosewood Miramar Beach may just be the answer. A spectacular estate that sprawls across 16 acres of landscaped gardens, leading onto one of Southern California’s most heralded beaches, it feels like the getaway you never need leave. 161 rooms and suites welcome you home here whilst a host of innovative restaurants, a restorative spa and an exclusive member’s only beach club cater to every whim.
Whilst many will lose Montecito in the shadow of Santa Barbara, those that find it, find something spectacular. Far from left in the dark, this small town is a shining light of the American Riviera. Tucked between the San Ysidro Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, you’ll find Miramar Beach, one of the best stretches of coast we’ve ever strolled across. A 90-minute drive from Los Angeles or 15-minutes from Santa Barbara Municipal Airport and you’ve arrived at once of America’s finest beach getaways.
Making the most of its beachfront location, the rooms and suites at Rosewood Miramar Beach benefit from private patios and terraces with views over the ocean or into the gardens. There is an overarching aesthetic of modern sophistication here with light, airy spaces and hushed coastal tones framed by luxurious fabrics and contemporary designs. Looking for a space to never leave, we fell in love with the Beach House Suites with their panoramic views from terraces teetering over the sands below. It’s more than enough to convince you to take the plunge and live your life on the beach.
Why we like it
Whether it’s the flawless beach butler service of the Miramar Club, the taste of Southern Italy meeting hyperlocal Californian produce at Caruso or the ‘Lost Remedies’ that make up the treatment list of Sense Spa, Rosewood Miramar Beach will have you falling in love with the American Riviera again and again.
