"El Encanto, A Belmond Hotel, Santa Barbara"
Perched high in the Santa Barbara hills, El Encanto, A Belmond Hotel offers awe-inspiring views of the American Riviera. Spread across seven acres of secluded gardens, the venerated hotel opened in 1918 and has been part of Santa Barbara’s social scene ever since. It is gleaming and glamorous, yet relaxed and low key. Infused with the textures and hues of the West Coast, each room or suite brings the best of the outdoors inside. Rooms boast king-size beds, marble bathrooms, garden seating, and heated stone floors, while suites offer added levels of luxury with charming open-hearth fireplaces or inviting patios. El Encanto, A Belmond Hotel, Santa Barbara, one of California’s most indulgent hideaways, also features onsite dining, a spa, an outdoor zero-edge pool, and indoor and outdoor event space.
