Just minutes away from the galleries and wineries of Santa Barbara, jewel of the American Riviera, Belmond El Encanto has recently been brought back to its original 1920s splendour. Within its landscaped grounds, which house an arbour, lily pond and zero-edge pool, lie a collection of California-style suites and bungalows with chic marble bathrooms, soaking tubs, rainforest showers and every conceivable comfort. Also quintessentially Californian is the cuisine in The Dining Room and Terrace, while The Lounge makes an ideal retreat for afternoon tea. The Wine Room has its own custom menu, paired with leading wines from local vineyards and beyond. Experience the ultimate indulgence at the spa with its range of invigorating treatments inspired by the surrounding landscape and a patio that offers spectacular views, leaving your mind and body feeling rejuvenated.
