Canary Hotel, A Kimpton Hotel

5* out of 5 stars

The only full service boutique hotel in downtown Santa Barbara, Canary Hotel, A Kimpton Hotel, stands for all things exceptional. Situated in the heart of fashionable Santa Barbara, the hotel and its 97 rooms are poised perfectly for both leisure and business travel. Feel relaxed and welcome as soon as you check in with a complimentary glass of wine - the perfect way to enjoy an idyllic holiday with the serene Santa Ynez Mountains and the unspoilt Pacific Coast as your backdrop.

A visit to the hotel's local spa partner, FLOAT Luxury Spa, or the opportunity for an in-room treatment is an excellent way to unwind. With free access to state-of-the-art Gold's Gym Santa Barbara, what better way to reward yourself after a calorie-crunching workout than with a deep tissue massage? Breathe in the crisp ocean air, soak up the Californian sun and take a plunge in the panoramic rooftop pool and Jacuzzi with poolside service just a phone call away. The outdoor freshwater pool happens to be the largest rooftop pool in Santa Barbara, and is custom heated for your total satisfaction.

When it comes to activities you are spoilt for choice. Bookable activities include golf, mountain climbing, kayaking, horse riding, whale watching and a variety of water sports. Not to be missed are Santa Barbara’s excellent boutique botanical gardens. Guests are welcome to participate in a rooftop yoga session on Saturday mornings, or to take advantage of the complimentary bicycle rental service at the hotel. Alternatively sample some of California's finest wines with the evening wine hour at the hotel. Not to worry if you over-indulge - guests can jumpstart their mornings with a complimentary tea, coffee and snacks in the lobby. This is a holiday to remember in the cool Californian hub where mountains meet ocean and worries are washed away.
