Where the Beauty of Renewal Meets the Bounty of the Sea…

Set above the calming blue waters of the Pacific, The Spa at Bacara is one of the great luxury spas. It’s the place where cares vanish into ocean breezes, where your well-being is elevated and celebrated, and where every experience is infused with the gift of a genuinely better way to live. In a world that often demands more than we can give, this 42,000 square-foot luxury spa in Santa Barbara invites you to slow down and relish the present.

With numerous locally inspired and European treatments for the body, mind and spirit, self-care is at the heart of our spa resort’s philosophy. Here is where the Gaviota Coast’s legendary oasis merges with the riches of the sea, enhancing the lives of our spa guests. The only place of its kind left, the Gaviota Coast remains untouched in its natural state, acknowledged since the days of its ancient inhabitants for its healing powers.

In the rare setting of our award-winning spa in Santa Barbara, you’ll find an abundance of amenities and activities. Unwind is 36 impeccable treatment rooms, where you’ll surround yourself with highly accomplished therapists and aestheticians. Our rooftop terrace features mud-based treatments and scrubs, as well as a private European sunbathing area. We also welcome you to relax in the adults-only heated saline lap pool at our Santa Barbara spa resort.

Recognized as one of the finest spas in the world, The Spa at Bacara is spectacular in every way, from its beautiful architecture and incredible array of services to its expert staff. To ensure your desired treatment and treatment times can be accommodated, we recommend scheduling your spa appointments in advance. Please call 805.571.4210 for details.
