Located in the American Riviera, Belmond El Encanto is Santa Barbara’s only Forbes Five-Star resort. This iconic early 20th-century property is situated atop a commanding hillside, offering ninety-two quintessential, California-styled bungalows and terraced grounds featuring seven-acres of gloriously landscaped gardens with sweeping views of Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean.
Original architectural features were lovingly restored, including the historic, trellised-lined Arbor and Lily Pond. Modern additions to the expansive outdoor swimming pool and a new beautifully appointed boutique spa enhance the Belmond El Encanto journey for today’s luxury-seeking guest. Sumptuous contemporary cuisine will also delight with organic and locally sourced ingredients.
In essence, Belmond El Encanto’s charming setting offers the ultimate secluded retreat, creating an eclectic and authentic ambiance for romance and rediscovery.
