Belmond El Encanto

800 Alvarado Place, Santa Barbara, Californ, United States

Why Belmond El Encanto

Belmond El Encanto embodies Hollywood glamour in a modern classic. Perched high in the Santa Barbara hills, this iconic hideaway offers the best views of the America Riviera. Spread across seven acres of lush secluded gardens, Belmond El Encanto opened in 1918 and has been a part of Santa Barbara's social scene ever since. The resort is gleaming and glamorous, yet relaxed and low key. The kind of place that invites you to recline poolside, breathe in the ocean air, and sip a glass of crisp local wine.  Experience timeless Californian glamour. Rooms invite coastal-style serenity with a blend of light, airy textures and locally carved furnishings that echo the tranquility outside. Underfloor heating and cozy fireplaces warm up the cooler seasons. Marble baths invite truly decadent bathing. Come spring, throw open your ocean-facing patio doors and drink in the breeze from the privacy of your terrace. Belmond El Encanto celebrates Santa Barbara’s early architecture. Fusing 92 guest rooms with California Craftsman and Spanish Colonial, this iconic retreat reflects 1920s style coupled with splashes of modern artistry. Work from local artist Charles Arnoldi adds extra drama to your stay. A sublime dining experience is guaranteed at The Terrace restaurant at Belmond El Encanto. Playing host to some of the best restaurants in southern California, their passion for artisanal ingredients and exceptional flavors matches the region’s culinary abundance. Expect in-season herbs from their ocean-facing garden and fresh seafood caught daily from the shores below. Taking inspiration from coastal elements, The Spa at El Encanto promises a sublime escape. Expert treatments feature one of three luxurious skincare lines, while reviving hydrotherapies offer a wonderful route to wellness. After your treatment, recline with detoxifying teas or juices on the terrace––the views of Santa Barbara will enchant you.
