The stone courtyard with pristine fountains gives guests a peaceful feeling upon arrival at the Bacara Resort & Spa -- an oceanfront getaway on the Gaviota Coast about 40 minutes southeast of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The lobby evokes an expansive Mediterranean villa with wood-beamed ceilings, rounded doorways and outdoor terraces with plush furniture surrounding the fireplace.
Along with beach access, the resort is also close to hiking trails. Guests are often found relaxing by one of three zero-edge saline pools while they admire the ocean. For the ultimate experience in unwinding, schedule a treatment at Spa at Bacara, which spans four levels and boasts a 3,500-square-foot fitness center with complimentary yoga and Pilates classes.
Each guest room has a furnished private balcony or patio, and bathrooms have marble showers and deep soaking tubs. Some villas have ocean views and fireplaces.
Note: Guests are responsible for a $25 nightly hospitality services fee that covers a bottle of select wine, two bottles of water, use of the resort’s spa and fitness center and basic Internet access. This fee will be added to the bill when checking out at the hotel.
