New management and mostly new staff, but a great place to stop driving down the coast.
Charming setting. Friendly accommodating staff
No self parking on property. $40 a day valet??
Rooms are spacious, especially the bathrooms. Quiet, beautiful property. Extremely comfortable bed with fabulous linens. Twice daily housekeeping. Beautiful saltwater pool.
Best sleep ever at a hotel! Bedding, pillows, mattress are superb. Bathrooms are amazing - a little small but thatâ€™s ok.
Staff, my bungalow, the grounds, the views, the beauty and grace and history of it, with deliciously modern amenities. It’s truly an enchanted place. I think would be perfect for a wedding or other party.
It’s very expensive
Nestled in the hills above Santa Barbara is the Belmond El Encanto, a glamorous hotel offering luxury accommodations for the discerning traveler. The property offers a wide range of amenities and features sure to set it apart from other options in and around the city.
The Belmond El Encanto offers over seven acres to explore, all of which are resplendently landscaped and ideally suited for leisurely strolling. The property actually dates back to the 1920s and maintains it historic charm. It has been completely restored to its former glory, as well.
There are 92 suites and bungalows on offer here, no two of which are the same. All are outfitted with high-end furnishings and the best of modern technology, though, such as high-speed Internet and big-screen TVs.
The infinity edge pool provides more than just a place to cool off – it overlooks the American Riviera with views out to the Pacific Ocean. There is an on-site resultant, bar and lounge, as well as a spa where guests are able to indulge and let their worries float away. Guests can also indulge in a stroll through the stunning gardens at the hotel.
Unlike many other properties, the Belmond El Encanto offers activities on its grounds, including watersports and water polo. Cave diving and winery tours can also be arranged on property. The hotel is also located just nine miles away from the Santa Barbara Airport, making travel simple and easy. Note that the hotel offers courtesy travel into Santa Barbara and to the airport.
