June 3, 2015

Oceanfront location will be third California property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by Caruso Affiliated, one of the largest, privately held real estate development companies in the U.S., to manage Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito which will open in Summer 2018 as Rosewood’s third property in California. Located approximately 90 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 124 guestrooms and 37 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 center and beach club. 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,” says 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.”

“We are delighted that our project is finally coming to fruition, and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is the perfect operator and one that shares our vision on delivering a world-class experience,” said Rick J. Caruso, founder and chief executive officer, Caruso Affiliated. “The historic location of the Rosewood Miramar Beach Montecito provides the perfect landscape to create a property that not only honors this landmark site, but also draws inspiration from the existing natural beauty of the region and continues to enhance the Montecito community.”
