Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara reopened on Friday after months of repairs and renovations following the January 9th mudslide in Montecito.

Known for its Spanish Colonial style, the resort hired a team of experts to restore the extensive landscaping and restoration of their back-of-house areas and guest rooms. Originally built in 1927 by architect Reginald Johnson, the property is now fully restored to its previous decadence. 

After a nearly five-month closure, the 22-acre oceanfront resort held a party to kick-off their re-opening. Throngs of locals filled Ty Warner Lounge and surrounding areas to support the Montecito community and businesses.

"On behalf of our 600 passionate and dedicated employees, I am thrilled to announce that our iconic Resort is back – and better than ever,” says Karen Earp, General Manager of  Four Seasons  Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara. “We look forward to welcoming our guests ‘home’ to experience the best of the American Riviera, beginning with our prime summer season.”

The resort offers a new 2,000 square foot Anacapa Suite overlooking the beach that will open in July, new culinary and spa offerings, and the Summer Tasting Series will continue with a lineup of local purveyors, distillers, and winemakers.

I think the best news about this is that Warner continued to pay his staffs' wages during the closure, tips included. They still have their jobs!

Just curious: Out here we can't use Goleta Beach--fecal contamination, toxic bacteria and so forth--is the beach across from the Biltmore open?

The status has not changed since your last rant of what... a week ago, so if you really forgot already the County website is current up to 2 days ago. Since there's been no heavy rain I'd guess it along with all but Goleta are still open.
