Do you hear that? This Valentine’s Day, the coast of sunny Southern California is calling. To make your February 14th more memorable than ever, leave all the details to Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara. Here, at the luxury oceanfront property, romance-minded staff will plan, serve, and act as guests’ personal concierge for the ultimate customised culinary experience.
Couples who’ve booked the new “Romance on the Riviera” package will be greeted at their guest rooms with champagne, then whisked away—via Pedicab— to the Resort’s most romantic setting, Cabana 24, for the dinner date of a lifetime.
“We’re right on the beach, so you can hear waves crashing on the sand while you’re dining,” explains Executive Chef Alessandro Cartumini. “I wanted to create an incredible experience that makes the most of this romantic location.”
Following a sunset welcome and champagne toast by the chef, couples are lead to the kitchen to meet the behind-the-scenes culinary team. After this, couples enjoy a four-course candlelight dinner paired with music and fine local wines, all tailored to their specific wishes. It’s an epicurean feast with a true Riviera feel, courtesy of the breathtaking views of the great Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands and the Santa Barbara coastline. Once guests arrive back at their rooms, special amenities await (think: pretty petals everywhere), completing the enchanted evening.
If you can’t make it to Santa Barbara but want a taste of this experience, why not make Chef Nick Barainca’s recipe for Duck Breast with Roasted Beets and Duck Fat Granola for your sweetie?
