The Cream of Santa Barbara, California: Bacara Resort & Spa
Stunning natural beauty surrounds you at the Bacara Resort & Spa, nestled on the Gaviota coast between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains in in Southern California. Here, you’ll find award-winning accommodations — 354 spacious guest rooms, luxury suites, and retreats, all containing private balconies or patios — along with fine dining in four restaurants (including the Miro, with its 12,000-bottle wine cellar); world-class golf; a legendary spa; and much more. Guest rooms are located within one-, two-, three-, or four-story villas connected by scenic paths, courtyards, and fountains, giving the resort a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Choose from village view, partial ocean view, or ocean view guest rooms; all are 450 square feet, giving you plenty of room to kick back and totally relax in this California paradise.
For corporate parties or events, Bacara Resort also features over 70,000 square feet of function space — so if you must do business in these wonderful surroundings, you’ll at least be able to do it in style! Weddings are another specialty, with numerous picturesque sites for that one-of-a-kind romantic celebration. But even if you’re just having a getaway, you’ll feel like royalty here — with Spanish colonial décor, special linens, soaking tubs, marble showers, and fireplaces in some rooms, you could be forgiven for settling down on a lounger with your feet up and letting the world go by. Then, again, you probably don’t want to pass up a good swim in the oceanfront pool, a little tennis, or, of course, shopping in Santa Barbara! Bacara: it’s all the best a vacation can offer, in a setting second to none.
