With the current super bloom painting the landscape in some of nature’s most vibrant colors, Montecito offers an ideal launching off spot to enjoy the exquisite Central Coast flowers. For those looking to escape the City, just 90 miles away, the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara is an idyllic place to simply unwind and relax.
Nestled beside the Pacific Ocean, the sound of gently crashing waves permeates almost every element of the 22-acre property, where rooms and private bungalows are set amongst tranquil gardens. Indeed, the exquisitely designed property, which dates back to 1927, immediately makes visitors feel as though they have been transported to another era with its Moorish influences and combined Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival styles.
Sophisticated and casual, every element seems designed to evoke escape. Not surprisingly, for decades it has served as a getaway for Hollywood celebrities, as well naturalists, and wine and art enthusiasts.
From the resort’s “Jungle Pool” to the ocean-side over-sized Olympic swimming pool (50 meters + 1 foot) at Coral Casino and its phenomenal Tydes restaurant, which includes the Coral Reef Bar where you can watch fish swim in 275-gallon salt water aquarium below your food as you slurp down oysters and sip on handmade cocktails, otherworldly opportunities abound.
There’s also a sublime spa, which boasts an array of treatments. A couple’s massage in a room over-looking the Pacific with French doors and a roaring fireplace is simultaneously romantic and relaxing.
And just in time for Spring, the award-winning hotel will host special brunches for both Mother’s Day and Easter in its Bella Vista Restaurant with an extravagant buffet where guests can enjoy all fare and bottomless mimosas beside the Pacific.
