Everyday’s a breeze at The Goodland {Local Getaway}

As soon as we drove up to The Goodland Hotel located in beautiful Goleta, just miles north of downtown Santa Barbara, we were instantly obsessed. And I mean, instantly. Everything from the font used on their signage, the dreamy airstream trailer and green grass lawn out front, the eclectic boutique decor, vibrant colors all throughout and the laid-back Southern California facade that transports you back in time to the 60’s, chilling with the RatPack at a swanky, yet breezy Palm Springs hotel — yeah, I’d say The Goodland had me at hello. 

Introducing you to the newest hot spot in Santa Barbara {drum roll please}… The Goodland.

We mentioned it first in our post about brunching at the OutPost (if you haven’t been yet, head over there STAT). Well now we want to share even more about this surfer lodge meets boutique retreat hotel, The Goodland.  Any place that states it has a “Golden State-of-mind attitude that’s all about fresh, local and laid back” peaks our interest.

First off, we must mention that the decor in this Southern California reTREAT is to die for. We were totally crushing on the mix of vibrant colors and navajo details all with a classic Santa Barbara vintage surfer vibe.  From the moment you walk into the lobby, you feel relaxed and at home {albeit in a beautifully decorated home that I wish I could call my own!}.

So not only does this hotel come with endless amenities for you, but for your four-legged friend as well!

While we are talking about endless amenities, did we mention they have a fitness center and spa on campus? Now this is no ordinary spa, Good Spa offers a plethora of unique packages such as Pet Therapy (yes, massages for your dog!), Baby Moon and holiday specials (the perfect Mother’s Day gift!).

And there’s more…

  • Free yoga classes on Sundays by the pool [and don’t worry, you don’t need to pack your own mat – each room offers complimentary yoga mats!]
  • Free Bliss Beats & Yoga special event open to guests and locals!
  • Free bike tours on Tuesday mornings, and just in case you want to explore on your own, stop by the front desk to get a state of the art PUBLIC bike at no extra charge.
  • Live music from local musicians on Thursdays 7 – 10pm!
  • And we may have heard from a little birdy that they’re planning to host DJ pool parties this summer. Hello perfect summer getaway!

Yes we agree, it’s amazing. Check out all the Daily Happenings here!

We especially love the pool’s “adult summer camp” vibe.  Come hang out with friends, relax by the pool with a garden-to-glass cocktail in hand, and nibble on tasty small plates.

Speaking of cocktails, make sure you stop by Good Bar.  We could hang out for hours in this laid-back lounge enjoying handcrafted cocktails, local beer, and wine while shooting pool or playing a game of backgammon.  And of course, because we are in beautiful Santa Barbara, step outside into the hip and intimate patio area where you are sure to find us.

I think it’s pretty obvious that The Goodland puts the “treat” in retreat. We cannot wait to visit again and take part in the endless amenities and fun happenings!

Whether your looking for an overnight escape, a relaxing getaway or simply a night out – The Goodland’s got it all just for you.
