Belmond El Encanto

There’s a reason this hotel is named after the Spanish word for “charmed.” An oasis for old-Hollywood stars since the 1920s, this upscale resort offers guests an away-from-it-all feel, even though it’s just minutes from downtown. Sitting on a seven-acre hillside property overlooking the city, the central building and several craftsman-style and Spanish colonial bungalows were recently restored, offering elegant spaces to relax. At the two restaurants—called simply the Dining Room and Terrace—chefs showcase the region’s ingredients in coastal-inspired dishes, which can include herbs from the on-site garden and cheese from the milk of the property’s resident Holstein cow, Ellie. Indulge at the spa with massage therapies, facial and body treatments, oxygen treatments, and skin care products from Beverly Hills facialist Linda Ross. Use the fitness studio for a workout on the Technogym treadmills, exercise bikes, and ellipticals, or take a cardio class. Or just soak in the California lifestyle at the zero-edge swimming pool, with a drink and an unparalleled view of the Santa Barbara coast.

Baby Brunch at Belmond

This was our first trip with our five month old son and we decided to stay at the Belmond El Encanto. It was by far one of the best hotels we've stayed in the whole world over. If you don't stay there at least make a trip up to the patio (shown above) for brunch or for drinks at sunset. It's truly breath taking.

Our room was nice little bungalow complete with a fireplace and patio. The staff here are all so very kind and they have a complimentary car that will take you the short 10min drive down to town.

We highly recommend this place for your next trip to Santa Barbara.
