The Landsby, a newly renovated 41-room boutique hotel, brings a unique hospitality offering Santa Barbara Wine Country. Located in downtown Solvang, a small town in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, the property combines a bright, contemporary design with Scandinavian elements inspired by the town’s Danish roots.
The Landsby, which means "the village" in Danish, offers an authentic hospitality experience to both visitors and locals. Designed by Santa Monica-based design firm, Studio Collective, the hotel incorporates a Scandinavian lodge aesthetic with a design nod to the past. The hotel lobby has been completely reconstructed to add relaxed lounge spaces and a new bar. The bar’s lively atmosphere is the perfect place for patrons to gather and enjoy a craft cocktail or glass of locally produced wine.
"We want to create a social hub within the community; a lively gathering place for all guests," says Janice Lesin, the Executive Manager overseeing the hotel. "The combination of unspoiled luxury and warm hospitality is what makes The Landsby a sophisticated destination getaway."
The bright and welcoming guestrooms, including several junior suites and the signature tower suite, is finished with blonde woods, brushed brass fixtures, genuine leather accents and sophisticated, yet comfortable, handcrafted furnishings. The rooms feature whimsical artwork commissioned by a regional artist and thoughtful accessories, which work together to create a residential ambiance. Standard room rates start at $225 and suites start at $329.
All guests have access to the property’s redesigned outdoor garden lounge. This new space is an oasis for guests, where they can relax and unwind among lush landscaping and romantically lit trees.
Additionally, the property serves as an ideal retreat for meetings, with multiple meeting venues offering a total of 2,980 square feet. The property also provides full-service amenities, catered meals from the restaurant, as well as access to courtyard and garden areas that can be used for breaks.
"The Landsby will set a new standard for hospitality in Solvang. We plan to offer a product that hasn’t previously been available in the area," said General Manager Barry Prescott. "We hope to achieve the perfect balance between style and comfort to create an unrivaled experience for our guests and members of the community."
Mad + Vin, the hotel’s highly anticipated restaurant, is inspired by the local wine region of the California coast. The name of the restaurant, which translates to "food and wine" in Danish, continues to play off of the hotel’s Scandinavian inspiration. Executive Chef Seth Nathan will develop a specialized menu that captures flavors from around the world and incorporates them into foods native to the area. The restaurant offers dinner seven days a week in addition to daily breakfast. A complimentary breakfast is included for all hotel guests.
Located 35 miles northeast of Santa Barbara, The Landsby is centrally located in downtown Solvang and steps away from boutique shops, bakeries, art galleries, sidewalk cafes, wine-tasting rooms, and restaurants. For more information and reservations, visit www.thelandsby.com or call 805-688-3121.
