Four Seasons Santa Barbara


A legend since opening in 1927, Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara is a classic Spanish Colonial estate infused with modern luxury. Offering direct access to Butterfly Beach, our 206 hotel accommodations are set amidst 22 acres (9 hectares) of lush gardens woven with sun-dappled, red-brick pathways.


Most guest rooms and suites are located in our two-storey main buildings. We also have a unique collection of 12 free-standing bungalows nestled within secluded jungle gardens. Capturing the essence of the classic California bungalow, each one comprises two to four Bungalow Rooms or Suites. View our special offers.

Many of our Santa Barbara accommodations include complimentary access to the private-membership Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club, steps from our hotel in the exclusive enclave of Montecito. 

For Families & Special Needs

Children 18 years old and under can be accommodated at no additional charge in a crib or rollaway in their parents’ room or suite, available upon request. Babysitting services are available. We recommend contacting the Resort directly to make the best arrangements. All rooms are non-smoking. 

Check In Time & Policies

Check In:4:00 PM
Check Out:12:00 PM

If you expect to arrive early in the day and would like immediate access to your room, we recommend booking the room for the prior night to guarantee immediate access. Similarly, for late departures, reserving an additional night will guarantee access to your guest room until you depart. If you choose not to reserve, we will be glad to store your bags and make our fitness facilities available for you to freshen up.

At Four Seasons, a guaranteed reservation assures you of a room even if you check in late (after 6:00 pm). If a room is not available, we will arrange your accommodation in another hotel at our expense, and provide transportation to and from Four Seasons as reasonable. All reservations made through the web site must be guaranteed by a major credit card. Certain arrival dates and rates may require a deposit. Please check for full deposit requirements at time of booking.

Cancellations for a guest room reservation must be received by 6:00 pm at least 3 days prior to the expected day of arrival (14 days for certain dates). Policies may differ by arrival date and room type. If cancellation of a guaranteed reservation is not received by the required date, the Resort will charge for one night's accommodation. For details of cancellation policies and deposit requirements, please check at time of booking.
