Spring’s renewal isn’t just marked by wildflowers and baby chicks. Santa Cruz hotels and resorts are getting in the spirit by debuting new looks for the season. You’ll find vibrant spring blooms plus a few new perks amidst the gorgeous grounds at Seascape Beach Resort. See what’s fresh this year at the waterfront resort, plus find out how to win a free stay with our spring 2018 vacation giveaway!
1. Spread Out in Spiffy New Suites
Seascape offers guests a taste of coastal living with homey studios and suites outfitted with full kitchens, living rooms, and private decks. A new, multi-million dollar renovation lent the roomy accommodations a bright new makeover. Studios and suites in the main building now sport gleaming new bathrooms and kitchens, all new flooring, and a clean, natural décor that reflects its coastal splendor outside their doors.
2. Dig into New Eats + Drinks
With a sunny patio overlooking Monterey Bay, Sanderlings is a delightful way to enjoy the property’s enviable bluff-top setting. A stellar cocktail bar mixes up timeless classics plus seasonal house specialties that incorporate local distilleries and fresh herbs from the resort’s garden. In addition to an all-day menu of salads and sandwiches, the restaurant features new breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus premiering new dishes such as a pair of killer Dungeness crab cakes with harissa aioli. Diners can also tuck into the Restless Palate Menu which features creative, food truck-style fare including sope tazas-savory, mini corn cakes filled with chicken, queso fresco, and charred salsa verde-and a Restless Burger overflowing with deliciousness such as carnitas, bacon, avocado, and duck fat butter.
One food item that hasn’t changed? S’mores-prepared and enjoyed on the beach, naturally. Seascape’s popular bonfire amenity offers guests the option of a private beach bonfire with friends. Say the word, and they’ll create the perfect beachside evening with a blazing fire, chairs, water, and s’mores fixings.
