Hotel Milo Santa Barbara, an Independent Collection hotel, falls into wine dinners, fitness tours and more beginning this October

Hotel Milo has partnered with famed Les Marchands chef Weston Richards for an Epicure Dinner.

'Santa Barbara’s finest indulgences are available for both guests and locals through these programs,' said Shelley Stearns, General Manager of Hotel Milo Santa Barbara.

The recently renamed Hotel Milo Santa Barbara, an Independent Collection hotel, anticipates the change of season by announcing its new fall programming, which incorporates the community and culture of Santa Barbara into the hotel’s seasonal offerings. What to look for starting October 1 at this Santa Barbara oceanfront hotel? A gourmet dinner under the October night sky, a professionally led bike tour through the mountains and full moon yoga for a start.

“Santa Barbara’s finest indulgences are available for both guests and locals through these programs,” said Shelley Stearns, General Manager of Hotel Milo Santa Barbara. “We are happy to incorporate local Santa Barbara events and glad we can continue working with our existing partners — Les Merchands, Lolë and SB Fitness Tours; they are integral parts of the community and fabulous to team up with.”

Epicure Dinner with famed Les Marchands chef Weston Richards

As Santa Barbara celebrates Epicure SB, 31 days of food and drink, Hotel Milo is joining in the fun and celebration. The boutique hotel is continuing its partnership with the legendary sommeliers, Les Marchands, to create a pop-up dinner series in the Milo courtyard on select Wednesday evenings in the month of October. The dinner will be an intimate experience, starting at 6pm and selling just 20 tickets at $69 per seat with an optional wine pairing for $25. Crafted by the in-house Les Marchands chef, Weston Richards, guests will enjoy a meal that is indigenous to the Santa Barbara coast. For tickets, please contact Les Marchands at info(at)lesmarchandswine(dot)com or 805-284-0380.

Yoga under the (Full) Moon

The Epicure SB series is just one way Hotel Milo will pay homage to all cultural components that Santa Barbara has to offer. On October 8, Hotel Milo will once again partner with Lolë Women’s Activewear to celebrate the Full Moon with a Yoga Flow by beloved Ayurveda and Yoga instructor, Kellen Brugman. The complimentary class will feature slow flow yoga set to the sounds, waves and the glow of the full moon in Ambassador Park. Lolë and Hotel Milo will be providing mats, water, towels and hot tea for the all-age, all-level class.

Historic tours of Santa Barbara by foot and bicycle

No trip to Santa Barbara is complete without a little adventure. To that end, Hotel Milo has collaborated with their partner SB Fitness Tours to craft historic guided bike and foot tours for both guests and locals. Featuring much of Santa Barbara’s rich tradition, SB Fitness tours will guide guests through a 2 hour expedition for $60 per person, which includes snacks and water. Guests can book their tours through Hotel Milo directly at 805-965-4577.

All of these exciting fall events at Hotel Milo give guests and locals many reasons to look forward to the change of season!
