Miramar Beach Resort on Santa Barbara Coast will open in February. The idyllic coastal retreat designed with style, grace, and glamour, sits on the site of the former Miramar By The Sea Hotel, a once-cherished destination for fashionable beach getaways. Miramar Beach is at your doorstep, where you can enjoy early-morning yoga on the sand and sunset walks along the water; or step out from your bungalow to lounge by one of the two pools, and unwind at the inspired Sense® spa.
