The exclusive Belmond El Encanto has been lovingly restored from its former 1920’s glory to become one of the West Coast’s most celebrated resorts. The original Spanish-Colonial and Californian design are highlighted throughout the boutique property’s 92 beautifully-appointed suites and bungalows, gorgeous dining terrace and spectacular garden walkways, whilst the additions of a lavish infinity-edge pool and sumptuous spa ensure a dose of pure modern luxury.
Each spacious bungalow and suite offers a serene hideaway feel, with lots of airy living space and elegant décor, showcasing spectacular views across Santa Barbara from large windows and private balconies. We think the bungalows are a great choice for couples or small families, with the choice of a king or double beds, and a wonderful selection of luxurious amenities including a marble-heated bathroom, deep soaking tub and Nespresso coffee machine, whilst the suites are ideal for larger families or those in search of a more indulgent living space, boasting a cosy fireplace, separate lounge and rainforest shower.
The extensive list of world-class facilities meet all you’d expect from a Belmond Hotel, including a state-of-the-art fitness studio, divine spa and breath-taking pool overlooking Santa Barbara’s famous scenery, but we love that Belmond El Encanto goes the extra mile with small touches to make your stay even more memorable and welcome, such as the staffed poolside bar serving complimentary iced lemon water to cool down.
Dining is a treat for all the senses at this resort, with the main restaurant serving a plethora of local gastronomic delights that are farm-to-table fresh with unbelievable ocean views, whilst the chic lounge is a wonderful spot to enjoy an exquisite afternoon tea, adorned by plush outdoor seating and gorgeous Pacific scenery.
