About Us

Situated on the American Riviera, this beautiful historic Resort, with its red roof tiles, ivory adobe and graceful archways, provides visitors a luxurious and intimate retreat. Lit by romantic gas lamps, brick walkways guide visitors through 20 acres of lush manicured tropical gardens surrounding the 207 guest rooms, suites and bungalows.

The 10,000 sq. ft. Spa elevates personal indulgence to a fine art. An inspiring array of restorative and beauty treatments, based upon the bounty of the sea blended with botanicals from the gardens of Santa Barbara, promote the art of well-being. Treatments may be enjoyed in 11 personalised treatment rooms – or in the privacy of your guest room. Overlooking the ocean, The Spa provides a peaceful spot to relax – as do the separate sauna and steam rooms for men and women.

Bella Vista Restaurant showcases organic, Italian-inspired California coastal cuisine. The restaurant’s décor – with its fireplaces, hand-carved wine wall, rich mahogany and rare marble – adds to the ambience of the tranquil seaside setting that features expansive ocean views and a heated outdoor terrace. Bella Vista is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.

Ty Lounge features an ocean view and a comfortable living-room setting, complete with a welcoming fireplace and an outdoor terrace. The Lounge is known for its specialty drinks and classic cocktails, and offers a sizeable menu of light American fare and sweet treats.

Adorning Butterfly Beach, classic Coral Casino Beach & Cabana Clubis a true haven for leisure and offers one of the most unique and exquisite Four Seasons guest experiences in the world. Registered guests of The Biltmore can take advantage of exclusive access to the “Coral Casino,” a private membership club built in 1937 that has long served as a glamorous playground for Hollywood and Montecito’s elite set. Here, guests enjoy an Olympic-sized lap pool, two restaurants, two bars, a fitness center and over 180 lounge chairs. Coral Cafe and Bar offers casual poolside dining with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean. Unparalleled panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands and the Santa Barbara coastline create a true Riviera feel, while 1930s Art Deco motifs and Scandinavian modern detailing thoughtfully highlight the Club’s original glamour and sense of luxury.

We stayed in a Premier Room and had access to the Coral Casino, one of the best pools in which we have ever had the chance to swim. Everyone was so kind here - we'll definitely be back.

Location and setting were gorgeous. The room was quite nice, but not fantastic and actually somewhat tired. We loved the grounds and the labeled specimen plants were a wonderful touch. Otherwise, one would need a botany guide because of the amazing diversity of the plantings. We have visited many Four Seasons resorts and hotels worldwide and have always been pleased and often thrilled. The Santa Barbara iteration was very expensive at $800/night and I simply expected more. Four Seasons, in general, are in a class by themselves, but Santa Barbara would be average or below compared to others.

A favorite California coastal destination. California at its best with excellent service and amenities as well as breathtaking views of the Channel Islands. A swim in the Coral Casino pool and a walk in the hotel gardens or the beach in front of the hotel will hook you forever.

Beautiful Old Hotel - Million Dollar Views

By: AliVAB23456


Reviewed on: 15 May 2017

This hotel is beautiful... I have a new goal to stay at all the FS properties and this one is gorgeous. You can tell it is older by the classic layout and architecture. My room was not ready when I arrived so I enjoyed a nice lunch on the patio overlooking the water. It was my birthday so they brought me a little dessert. It still wasn't ready when I was finished around 4:45 so they upgraded me to a suite. It was a beautiful large room with a steam shower (loved it) and Bvulgari bath goodies. Location is nice - it's about a 15 minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara but it's just on the outskirts of the small town of Montecito which has tons of shopping and food. You can easily spend an afternoon shopping. The staff were all excellent as usual - but I really must say the valet staff were top notch. All were friendly and helpful, a few of them recommended some local hikes to me that weren't on the handout the hotel has and I did one of them and LOVED it! On my birthday!
