Bacara is very much a Goleta hotel and we’re proud to call it home

Though we are often associated with beautiful Santa Barbara by people outside of Southern California (and sometimes even by our very own marketing department!), we take a great amount of pride in our Goleta roots.

Goleta is something of a “city within a city” inside Santa Barbara County. And while Goleta enjoys much of the same natural beauty as its concentric counterpart does, its culture is in many ways distinct.

The city’s topography is unique. Located at feet of the Santa Ynez Mountains, Goleta is subject to “sundowners” — extremely hot winds conjured up suddenly. But have no fear; the heat isn’t terribly oppressive, and that’s also why Bacara has three pools and the pacific ocean ready to help you cool off.

Bacara is extremely proud to be one of the biggest employers in Goleta, with a staff of more than 500 associates. But that doesn’t mean we’re the only business in town, far from it. Defense contractor Raytheon and software giant Citrix also call Goleta home.

For twelve years now, ever since we’ve opened our doors, Bacara’s relationship with Goleta has been deep and meaningful. And we look forward to another twelve years of calling this wonderful place home.
