Belmond El Encanto, Santa Barbara's most enchanting hideaway - Hollywood glamour in a modern classic.
Perched high in the Santa Barbara hills, this iconic escape offers the 92 California-styled Bungalows and the best views of the American Riviera. Spread across seven acres of secluded gardens, Belmond El Encanto opened in 1918 and has been part of Santa Barbara's social scene ever since.
The resort is gleaming and glamorous, yet relaxed and low key. It's the kind of place that invites you to recline poolside, breathe in the ocean air, and sip a glass of crisp local wine.
Nestled between lush green mountains and a crystal blue sea, Belmond El Encanto sits atop a Santa Barbara hill just minutes away from exquisite restaurants, fine galleries, boutique wineries and the beautiful California coast. Santa Barbara’s reputation as the American Riviera is well-earned by the temperate weather and sophisticated ambiance of this Mission Canyon city.
92 Suites & Bungalows infused with the textures and hues of the West Coast, each Bungalow or Suite brings the best of the outdoors inside. Private Bungalows boast king-size beds, marble bathrooms, garden seating and soothing heated stone floors. Suites offer added levels of luxury, with charming open-hearth fireplaces or patios to unwind on in privacy.
