A Night At… Rosewood Miramar

The Rosewood Miramar Beach stands as a beacon of luxury and elegance on the picturesque shores of Montecito. As well as its extraordinary natural beauty, Montecito is known for its famous residents, including Oprah, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. This coastal haven is a testament to the timeless allure of beachfront living combined with the sophisticated flair of the Rosewood brand.

Opened in 2019, the Rosewood Miramar Beach is a sprawling resort that spans 16 acres, offering guests a retreat into a world of refined opulence. The resort’s architecture seamlessly blends classic and contemporary styles, reflecting the laid-back glamour of Santa Barbara. With its iconic white façade, framed by bushes embellished with pink flowers and flittering hummingbirds, Rosewood Miramar has a timeless beauty.

The resort’s crown jewel is its privileged location along Miramar Beach. Guests wake up to the soothing sound of ocean waves and can stroll along the pristine sands just steps from their accommodations. The oceanfront setting provides a backdrop of unparalleled natural beauty, making it an ideal destination for those seeking a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Keep an eye out for Francesca the majestic hawk who soars around the property under the watchful eye of her handler to keep the pesky seagulls away.

Once you cross the threshold of Rosewood Miramar Beach it is like entering a magical world, everything is so perfect it feels like you are on a movie set but with all the comforts of home. As it is a popular celebrity haunt, privacy is paramount but the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Travis Barker proposed to Kourtney Kardashian on the beach, Chelsea Handler has stayed with her girlfriends and Gwenyth Paltrow has even opened a luxurious GOOP shop in the hotel that is a treasure trove of decadent delights, from luxurious apparel to Hermès Birkins.

The resort features a variety of guest rooms, suites, and beachfront villas, each meticulously designed to evoke a sense of coastal chic. The enchanting rooms are adorned with custom furnishings, plush fabrics, and a soothing colour palette, creating an atmosphere of understated elegance. The bathrooms are stocked with Diptyque amenities and many rooms boast private balconies or terraces, offering panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean or the lush gardens that envelope the property.

The jewel in the crown of Rosewood Miramar Beach is its signature restaurant, the Michelin-starred Caruso’s which also has a green star for sustainability. Far from just a restaurant, Caruso’s is an experience like no other. Illuminated by candlelight, listen to the waves crashing against the sand and the soft French jazz wafting from the speakers. The attention to detail is magnificent, the waitress will bring a black or white napkin, whichever matches your outfit better. 

The truffles are spectacular, beautifully presented in a wooden box. There are black truffles from Australia and White from Alba in Italy and the scent is hypnotic once the lid is lifted. Everything is extraordinary, even in the homemade bread with aromatic black garlic butter and the hyper local olive oil from Montecito which is produced exclusively for the hotel.

Whether it’s a romantic getaway, a family holiday, or a special event, Rosewood Miramar Beach captures the essence of coastal living at its finest. With its timeless charm and commitment to excellence, the Rosewood Miramar Beach continues to enchant guests, inviting them to create cherished memories against the backdrop of Montecito’s idyllic coastline.
