Newly opened in late July of 2023, the Santa Barbara hotel offers travelers and locals alike a serene retreat within a lush garden setting located just 1.9 miles from Santa Barbara Airport and 2.1 miles from UCSB.
Throughout the property, each detail is infused with care – from custom local artwork, a lobby library lounge, lush lawns for picnicking, room amenities, all with a nature-driven aesthetic. Enjoy resort-style amenities like an outdoor heated swimming pool and hot tub, daybed swings, complimentary bicycles, lawn games, an outdoor fire pit, yoga lawn, and state-of-the-art fitness center in our renovated historic barn. Spend time exploring the grounds with hidden experiences to delight the soul in our forest hideaway.

Feed the soul with hyper-fresh and local California cuisine at Terra, serving farm-to-table dishes for breakfast and dinner.

They honor the Sexton’s, their land’s heritage, and the stewardship of Goleta’s history with inspired versions of the avocado toast. Happy hour is also offered every Friday and Saturday from 3 – 6pm.
From elegantly simple weddings and gorgeously floral bridal showers to inspiring team-building retreats and social events, hosting an event at The Steward hotel will be an unforgettable experience.
