Luxury Holidays At The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara

Wide skies, warm sun, Pacific seas and Santa Barbara’s beautiful coastline set the scene at Bacara – which brings together Spanish Colonial warmth and old Hollywood glamour. This Mediterranean-style village resort covers over seventy-eight beachfront acres. Rooms and suites reflect the serenity of the coastal setting, with rustic, natural materials, subtle earth tones, beautiful Spanish tiles and Frette linens – plus, in many there are cosy fireplaces to light - ideal for the cooler autumn evenings. There’s a choice of five superb dining options, three infinity edge saline water pools, four tennis courts, an indulgent spa and two miles of natural beach for guests to enjoy. Additionally, for those who like to be active, guests can also enjoy a range of resort activities including painting classes, hiking, surfing, and sailing lessons and horse riding.

Luxury Beach

The temperate central Californian climate ensures that the beach is a natural playground for many, but in Santa Barbara it’s about so much more than simply lying back on a sun lounger. The beautiful Pacific Ocean beach at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara covers nearly 2 miles and offers water sports including kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or perhaps live the Californian dream and take to the surf.


Golf

Santa Barbara is blessed with three 18-hole golf courses and the ‘Sandpiper’ is a championship course located approximately half a mile away from the hotel. This challenging course provides stunning backdrop of mountain and ocean views and combines beautifully rolling fairways with the undulating greens so synonymous with a coastal links course.


Spa & Wellness

Locally inspired and luxury spa rituals take centre stage at this exceptional day spa. Alongside the extensive menu of treatments which include the Hollywood Massage, and the Bacara Signature Massage guests can indulge in acupuncture, skincare and hair and nail treatments. The spa also encompasses a swimming pool, redwood sauna and eucalyptus steam room along with fireside lounges and a rooftop terrace from where you can soak up the panoramic views.
