The Spa at El Encanto totals 4,500 square feet, with seven treatment rooms, one of which accommodates wet spa services. Before, after, or in between treatments, guests have access to multiple outdoor relaxation patios to spend quiet moments and sip tea.
Decadent rituals reflect the sprawling Pacific Ocean and wine country surroundings. Therapies include the signature You Are Beautiful body treatment, a luscious combination of an organic sugar, espresso, and cacao body polish, a warm coconut milk and flower petal wrap, and a full-body massage with mimosa and peony flowers and honey oils. Other sumptuous body services comprise a cacao coffee scrub, a strawberry blossom scrub, and a bamboo charcoal wheatgrass body wrap. Massage, facials, waxing, sunless tanning, nailcare, and hairstyling treatments make up the menu as well.
Skinceuticals, Lotus Wei, and Linda Ross products are used.

DINING & FACILITIES
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.
