About Mar Monte Hotel Santa Barbara

Oceanfront Ceremony & Receptions

The Mar Monte Hotel is a historic landmark & oceanfront hotel wedding venue located in Santa Barbara, California. Come, relax, and stay at this beautifully restored, romantic venue as you prepare to say ‘I do’ and celebrate love and commitment in beautiful surroundings. With the Pacific Ocean as your backdrop, you and your true love can be joined in matrimony during an unforgettable event.

Facilities and Capacity

For your dream ceremony, you can make your way towards the beach located just a short walk across the boulevard. Here, with the waves lapping gently at the shore, you and your partner can join hands for a magical, intimate, and romantic union. A pergola can easily be set up for you to stand under as you say your vows, while white chairs can be arranged for the wedding party. Afterwards, pad your way through the white sand underneath some palm trees as you run, shoes in hand, with your partner towards the hotel.

  • My husband and I knew we wanted to get married on the beach but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of getting city permits. When we found out the Hyatt has a package that takes care of the permits and includes chairs, altar, ceremony Dj and setup and breakdown all within their entire ceremony and reception package it was a no brainer. Our hotel coordinator Amanda was a rockstar and made planning so easy and stress free. She is so calm and patient and seriously the perfect balance for an anxious bride-to-be. I could not recommend working with her and the Hyatt enough for a beautiful event and a great value in Santa Barbara.
