Fodor's Review

A luxury resort with four restaurants and a 42,000-square-foot spa and fitness center with 36 treatment rooms, the Bacara provides a gorgeous setting for relaxing retreats. The Spanish colonial–style buildings and manicured gardens sprawl across 78 acres next to a rugged stretch of beach 15 miles north of downtown Santa Barbara. The rooms have views of the ocean, mountains, or gardens; all rooms have private balconies or patios and about half have fireplaces. Potential

diversions here range from hiking and stargazing to kids' activities and golfing at three nearby courses. For a first-class meal, drop by the elegant Miró restaurant. At the on-site Foley Family Wines tasting room you can sample wines of the Central Coast, Northern California, and beyond.
