Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito to open in 2018

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by Caruso Affiliated, one of the largest, privately held real estate development companies in the US, to manage Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito which will open in 2018 as Rosewood’s third property in California. 

Located approximately 80 miles northwest of Los Angeles, Montecito is situated within the county of Santa Barbara and is one of the nation’s most affluent and exclusive areas. 

The region is renowned for its stunning landscape, pleasant year-round climate and spectacular residential architecture.

The resort will be located on the site of the former Miramar Beach Hotel, an important landmark in the local community, and will serve as a world-class destination and a gathering place for both locals and visitors.


Spread over nearly 16 acres of prime beachfront real estate, Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito will offer 122 guestrooms and 48 suites, many of which will be located in single-story cottages and bungalows. 

Amenities will include an oceanside bar and restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a signature restaurant, two swimming pools, a Sense spa, a state-of-the-art fitness canter, beach club and screening room.

In addition, there will be 12,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space including a 6,000-square-foot ballroom. 

The site of the Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito is considered to be one of the most beautiful, pristine and secluded beaches in Santa Barbara. Guests staying in the oceanfront suites and rooms will be able to walk directly from their accommodations onto the sand. 

“Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito will be a perfect illustration of Rosewood’s philosophy of A Sense of Place,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer, Rosewood Hotel Group. 

“The resort will combine a relaxed California atmosphere with intuitive service and a picturesque, beachfront setting.  We look forward to working closely with Caruso Affiliated, a best-in-class developer, to bring this long-awaited resort to life.”
