The Tommy Bahama Miramonte Resort & Spa strategically weaves laid-back island vibes with luxurious desert serenity for a once in a lifetime escape. The resort’s eight meeting venues have been renamed to reflect the brand’s island spirit and include the expansive Grand Ballroom, signature Grand Lawn surrounded by greenery of ficus and cypress trees, intimate White Sands and Marlin Ballrooms, and second-story Sunset Terrace with unparalleled mountain views, a grand stone fireplace and cathedral columns. Tucked away off the Sunset Terrace, the Meeting Suites bring the outdoors in with natural light and French doors while providing a space for small, confidential meetings.
“We are thrilled to welcome visitors to the one-of-a-kind Tommy Bahama Miramonte Resort & Spa,” said Kevin Barnes, General Manager. “The transformed resort seamlessly merges Tommy Bahama’s signature, easy-going aesthetic with our unique haven, and Grapefruit Basil’s new culinary experience is a true highlight, thoughtfully designed for our valued guests and the desert community.”
Grapefruit Basil, the resort’s new signature restaurant and bar, is the first of its kind and was developed exclusively for Tommy Bahama Miramonte Resort & Spa. Named after the famed Tommy Bahama cocktail and paying homage to citrus trees found across the property, interiors are anchored by hues of white and green with yellow accents embodied by live Meyer lemon trees inside. Serving brunch and dinner seven days a week, the indoor/outdoor dining venue features coastal-inspired dishes and a seasonal craft cocktail menu. From Santa Barbara smoked salmon and beef from a Santa Carota ranch in Bakersfield to Rancho Gordo beans harvested in Napa Valley, dishes are complemented by citrus and herbs grown at the resort.
Presenting everything essential for a day of tropical relaxation, the renovated 12,000-square-foot Spa Rosa offers 11 serenely appointed treatment rooms for indoor/outdoor services and features a new menu of desert-inspired wellness treatments and rituals. The holistic menu draws inspiration from the healing powers of the surrounding desert paired with Tommy Bahama’s Island spirit, and includes treatments such as the guided Daydream to Life Ritual, Island State of Mind Massage, Santa Rose Mountain Mud Body Mask, and Precious Rose Quartz Facial. Guests can unwind in Spa Rosa’s eucalyptus-infused steam rooms, four outdoor cabanas with open-air showers, outdoor meditation dens, and hot and cold soaking pools for pre- and post-treatment relaxation. Groups can rent out the intimate spa for a private wellness retreat or participate in breakout activities such as yoga on the lawn, a sound bath session with a local shaman or creating body oils using citrus from the property’s groves.
