Occupying an enviable location on America’s Riviera, Four Seasons The Biltmore is set away from the downtown area, across the road from a wonderful public beach, Butterfly. There are 207 guest rooms, decorated in a Spanish colonial style, situated in low-lying buildings.
The hotel is set within extremely well-manicured gardens and is home to a number of exotic plants that have been brought in from around the world. It hosts North America’s largest collection rare kentia palms as well as the famous Moreton Bay fig tree.
Access to the nearby super exclusive Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club is included for guests staying in rooms above the Premier Room category. This high-end setting offers pool and cabana facilities and is a favourite amongst celebrities visiting Santa Barbara. We recommend opting for the higher categories or Suites.
The pool is arguably the best in town and there’s also a kid’s pool; the whole resort offers a relaxed atmosphere. Aside from sun-bathing on Butterfly Beach, where sunsets are not to be missed, traverse the beach in one of the resort’s Beach Cruisers along the coastal path to downtown, or go stand-up paddle boarding, surfing or kayaking. On Mondays and Saturdays in July and August, enjoy a complimentary S’Mores experience – a favourite with honeymooners and families.
Dining takes place both at the hotel and at the Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club. The Bella Vista is the main restaurant in-resort serving Italian-Californian cuisine and has fireplaces, a hand-carved wine wall and an outdoor heated terrace. Wines from the town are on the menu here. There’s also Lounge and Fins, both serving light fare. Dining in the Club is at Tydes and Coral Cafe, with the latter also offering a kid’s menu. The Spa meanwhile offers some seasonal signature treatments including a peppermint scrub in winter, a floral and citrus body wrap in spring and an Ayurvedic scalp massage in autumn.
