Montecito’s Rosewood Miramar has won accolades from three leading travel publications

Rosewood Miramar Beach announced last week that it has received distinguished accolades from three leading travel authorities. The distinctions include a Gold Badge in U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best Hotels rankings, as well as being named the best hotel in Santa Barbara and the ninth best hotel in California by the publication. This year marks the first year Rosewood Miramar Beach received a Gold Badge in the awards program, signifying the top ten percent of all ranked luxury hotels in the U.S. The resort has also been recognized on Travel + Leisure’s 2021 T+L 500 list for the first time. Additionally, Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Rosewood Miramar Beach received a Five-Star rating in Forbes Travel Guide’s 2021 Star Ratings for the second consecutive year.

“We are beyond thrilled to be named among the top hotels and resorts, not only in Santa Barbara and California, but in the world by such highly regarded awards programs in the industry,” said Rick Fidel, resort manager at Rosewood Miramar Beach. “Following a year of unprecedented challenges, we are honored to be recognized for the hard work and dedication displayed by our team members and we look forward to continuing to bring our guests and community the highest standards of service and exceptional experiences as they continue to discover the magic of Miramar.”

The Rosewood Miramar boasts 161 elegant guestrooms and suites, including many with beachfront views, six restaurants and bars and high-end onsite retail experiences, two cabana-lined pools, a fully serviced pristine beach, and Sense, A Rosewood Spa, offering guests unique treatments and rituals inspired by the healing traditions and native plants found in the local surroundings, as well as the latest technology and therapies on the market.

The U.S. News & World Report ranking evaluates and reviews more than 30,000 luxury hotel properties throughout more than 400 destinations in the United States, Europe, Bermuda, Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean, assessing both professional and guest opinion, as well as annual industry awards and star ratings. The full list is published exclusively online at www.travel.usnews.com/Hotels/

The T+L 500 list draws on the Travel + Leisure 2020 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey results, which rates hotels on characteristics such as guestrooms, destination, service and culinary programs, and then recognizes the best hotels around the globe by naming them to this year’s list. The celebrated awards program made its return this year following a six-year pause. The full list is featured in the March 2021 print issue. Additionally, Forbes Travel Guide is the only independent, global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas, and its annual Star Ratings have been revered as a global authority on travel since its launch in 1958. This year, properties were inspected prior to the pandemic and when regional restrictions allowed for the safe return of guests. The winning properties, restaurants, and spas are showcased on www.forbestravelguide.com.
