The Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara reports that it will reopen June 1 after January’s deadly mudslides in California forced the evacuation and closure of the property.

The Four Seasons Santa Barbara said that a team of experts has worked to restore the 22-acre resort from damage caused by the mudslides, including extensive landscaping and restoration of some back-of-house areas and guest rooms. The luxury hotel was originally built in 1927 by architect Reginald Johnson in a Spanish Colonial style.

This past January heavy rains struck areas of California that had already been burned by December’s Thomas fire, triggering deadly mudslides and forcing the evacuation of the area’s luxury hotels, including the Four Seasons Santa Barbara and The Montecito Inn, which officially reopened to guests in March following the restoration of the property.

Looking ahead, the Four Seasons Santa Barbara reports that it is adding a new Anacapa Suite, which is set to open this July. The 2,500 square foot space overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Butterfly Beach, and has a 15” x 17” plunge pool, a fire pit and a private driveway, as well as complimentary access to the private-membership Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club.

Also this summer, the luxury hotel will bring back its Summer Tasting Series with a new lineup of local purveyors, distillers and winemakers, as well as introduce new culinary and spa offerings. The property is also offering the Experience More – Resort Credit Package, which includes accommodations and a resort credit of up to $300.
