Experience Unparalleled Luxury at Bacara Resort & Spa

The Top Hotel in Santa Barbara, CA

Adjacent to the resort community of Santa Barbara, Bacara Resort & Spa is located along California’s most spectacular stretch of Pacific paradise, between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains. With 78 acres of oceanfront property – including two miles of natural beach – our luxury hotel near Santa Barbara offers 358 guest rooms and luxury suites in an expansive sun-drenched setting. Enjoy vista views of the sea and sky while embracing an innovative, artful design of low-storied buildings terraced to the sea and connected by lush, meandering garden paths.


A Southern California Resort Like No Other

Complete with flower-filled courtyards, restful fountains and red-tiled roofs, Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara is the perfect place to enjoy the leisurely pace and warm embrace of the California lifestyle. Santa Barbara enjoys a Mediterranean climate – mild and sunny with average daytime temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees. Cool, crystal-clear nights are ideal for stargazing – unlike most coastal Southern California resorts, where the concentration of urban lights and frequent nighttime clouds can obscure even the moon.  Unwind in our award-winning 42,000-square-foot spa and fitness center or relax beside one of three zero-edge swimming pools.

Just 10 minutes from the Santa Barbara Municipal Airport, our Santa Barbara resort is approximately 90 miles north of Los Angeles (90 minutes by car) or three hours from LA via the scenic Amtrak Surfliner. Bacara Resort is a five-hour drive from San Francisco.
