Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Miramar Beach

California-coast-inspired pampering

Tucked away in Santa Barbara’s celebrity enclave of Montecito, Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Rosewood Miramar Beach is an elegant hideaway dedicated to relaxation and revitalization.

Located on the second floor of the Manor House (above the hotel lobby), the spa includes all the mainstay amenities, such as steam rooms and saunas, but the highlights are the unique services. Featuring a blend of natural ingredients (ginger, sage and prickly pear, among others) and luxurious skincare lines, the treatments reflect Southern California’s holistic health culture.

With an array of fitness classes geared to the active set and a sumptuous selection of muscle-melting massages and anti-aging facials, this Montecito retreat is sure to leave you feeling refreshed.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Signature treatments like the Montecito Sage Purification or Calming Wild Ginger Tradition are not only out-of-the-box spa experiences, but also results-driven.
  • The spa’s staff consists of highly trained, seasoned therapists, and it shows.
  • Your pampering is taken seriously here with services featuring top-notch skincare lines, such as Maison Caulieres and EviDenS de Beauté.
  • Sunrise beach yoga is definitely worth peeling yourself from your room’s extremely cozy bed.
  • Whether you need a deep-tissue massage, a pre-event emergency facial or a romantic couple’s immersion, the Santa Barbara spa has just the cure.

Things to Know

  • You don’t have to stay at Rosewood Miramar Beach to enjoy a massage, but guests of the chic hotel do receive gratis access to the spa’s sauna, steam room and relaxation areas.
  • Each signature service begins with a cup of bespoke tea reflective of the native plants used in the treatment.
  • With its oceanside location, Rosewood Miramar Beach is a popular spot for celebratory events. Book early if you’d like a weekend treatment at this seven-room luxury spa.
  • The Montecito spa advises arriving 15 to 30 minutes early to take advantage of its facilities before your service.

The Treatments

  • Three 90-minute treatments each focus on the healing power of a native plant. The Calming Wild Ginger Tradition, for example, highlights the soothing effects of ginger with an herb-infused tea; a prickly pear fruit, ginger and citrus salt scrub; and a hot stone massage.
  • If you’re feeling a bit unbalanced, opt for the Alkaline State treatment. It begins with a pH test followed by a magnesium-rich foot bath, an Alkaline Marine Cocoon body wrap, an Alkalizing Clarity Facial and a pH-balanced beverage to send you on your way.
  • For a radiant glow, go for the Signature Extreme 360 Anti-Aging Ritual from luxe French beauty brand EviDenS de Beauté. The eight-step ritual includes a specialized bio-collagen mask (to hydrate and plump) and a pampering neck, back and shoulder massage.
