About Belmond El Encanto

The essence of true California accentuates the glamorously casual Belmond El Encanto, a Forbes Five-Star hotel that resides in an enchanting location between the Pacific Ocean and the rolling hills of Santa Barbara wine country. An icon since the 1920s, the secluded West Coast retreat capitalizes on sweeping views of the sea, Santa Barbara, and seven acres of manicured gardens. Original architecture has been restored to remind guests of the property’s past splendor, while the additions of an infinity-edge pool and boutique spa reveal its prominent future.

Facilities & Amenities

Facilities & Amenities

Belmond El Encanto’s fitness studio, located on the ground floor, draws in workout fans with Technogym equipment and yoga, boot camp, core strengthening, and personal training classes; exercise bikes set just outside the studio overlook the hotel’s expansive seven-acre gardens. An outdoor infinity-edge swimming pool with ocean views takes people out of the gym, as does Santa Barbara’s myriad of offerings. Downtown, with its galleries, restaurants, historical attractions, and boutiques, including the Paseo Nuevo shopping mall, is minutes from the hotel, and nearby wine country awaits with tours and tastings. The beautiful city is also renowned for its miles of pristine beaches, 50 lush public parks, and Santa Ynez Mountains landscape, which all present ideal backdrops for activities such as paddleboarding, surfing, hiking, horseback riding, and golf.
