Belmond El Encanto
You’re treating a special someone to a romantic weekend away. What locale do you go to? Santa Barbara, California – Sebastien Devaud
Belmond El Encanto is a luxury resort, privately set in the hills of Santa Barbara, California. It’s the only 5-star hotel in the city and has been a popular destination since its heyday in the 1920s. Recently restored to its former glory with a new swimming pool and spa facilities, Belmond El Encanto is now better than ever. While Belmond El Encanto is never pretentious, this hotel is still bursting with vintage style and flair. It’s become a worthy destination for even the most discerning travelers and is conveniently located only 15-minutes away from Santa Barbara Municipal Airport or about a two hour drive from Los Angeles.
Every room at the resort is filled with stylish accents and elegant furnishings, so guests only need to choose between staying in a private suite or a personal bungalow (not bad, not bad!). Immense bathtubs and plush beds come standard and many accommodations include marble bathrooms with heated floors, working fireplaces, private patios and furnished balconies. Rates for each room range between $400-$1,800 USD per night, depending on the season, but anytime is a good time for a trip to Southern California. Make your vacation even more luxurious by booking a treatment at the resort’s serene spa facilities—try a Thai massage or an El Encanto signature facial. Afterward, head to the terrace for a delightful meal featuring Californian cuisine and impressive views of the lush scenery, or visit the lounge for some afternoon tea.
