The hotel was beautiful and the staff was very helpful. We thought the pool area was nice and enjoyed the jacuzzi in the evening. Once we parked and checked in, we never needed our car again. We were able to walk to all of the shops and restaurants in Solvang! We will definitely be back.

Pocket Guide: Luxury Hotel Hotels in Santa Barbara

Known as the American Riviera thanks to its temperate climate and over 300 days of sunshine a year, Santa Barbara has become the playground of the rich and famous. With its wide sandy beaches, top-notch fine-dining restaurants and an abundance of designer shopping malls, Santa Barbara is a luxurious place to stay.

Santa Barbara's Luxury Hotels

Santa Barbara has many four- and five-star hotels, from chic design-led accommodation in historic mansions to sprawling luxury beach resorts with sweeping ocean views. Head to the upmarket suburb of Montecito for Hollywood-style hotels or to the foothills of San Ysidro for stylish mountain ranches.

Many luxury places to stay in Santa Barbara offer fine-dining restaurants, infinity pools and deluxe spa facilities. For spa and golf resorts, head out to the eastern fringes of the Los Padres National Forest to the boho town of Ojai, less than an hour's drive from Santa Barbara.

Luxury Stays near Santa Barbara's Best Beaches

Book a five-star luxury resort in Montecito – four miles east of downtown - and you'll have easy access to the sands and swaying palm trees of Butterfly Beach, one of Santa Barbara's best beaches. Book a room here and you'll be within walking distance of the suburb's excellent fine-dining restaurants, small-batch coffee shops and stylish neighbourhood bars.
