Previously known as Miramonte Resort & Spa, the property has unveiled a $20 million renovation with its rebrand to Tommy Bahama Miramonte Resort & Spa, the lifestyle brand’s first resort. “Situated against the Santa Rosa Mountains, the transformed resort boasts 215 guest rooms and reimagined villa suites infused with a custom tropical design aesthetic woven into 11 acres of olive trees, fragrant citrus groves, and flower gardens,” says Robert Hatfield, director of sales and marketing for the resort.
Eventgoers at the resort will have access to three saltwater pools; the resort’s Spa Rosa, a 12,000-square-foot wellness destination with desert-inspired treatments and daily classes; the signature Grapefruit Basil restaurant, serving California-inspired cuisine; a spacious outdoor patio for nightly live music and seating by any of its eight fire pits; two bocce ball courts; a 24-hour fitness center; and, to a meeting planner’s delight, a good 35,000 square feet of flexible function space.
“With connecting lawns and terraces providing stunning views of the Santa Rosa Mountains, the resort offers customizable catering menus and innovative breakout spaces all framed by the desert surroundings,” adds Hatfield. Among the available meeting spaces, which have all been renamed to reflect the Tommy Bahama brand’s island aesthetic, planners can choose from the White Sands Ballroom, the Sunset Terrace, the Marlin Ballroom, its signature Grand Lawn surrounded by Ficus and cypress trees, and more. Available group capacity ranges in size from 10 to 400. “The resort [also] offers an array of on-site classes and amenities for groups to relax, bond, and socialize, including wellness classes like aerial and vinyasa yoga, tai chi and somatic movement, hiking, and rentable e-bikes to explore the surrounding neighborhoods.”
Paying homage to the famed Tommy Bahama cocktail and the resort’s citrus trees, the signature Grapefruit Basil on-site restaurant features indoor and outdoor seating and serves brunch and dinner all week. Dine on dishes including Santa Rosa smoked salmon and beef sourced from a Santa Carota ranch in Bakersfield, all of which are complemented by herbs and citrus grown on-site. Menus can be crafted to suit planners’ and groups’ preferences.
Hatfield adds, “The unique layout and architectural design of the boutique resort provides a relaxing escape for guests, transporting them to their own private oasis in the heart of the desert.”
