Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara

1260 Channel Dr., Santa Barbara, California, 93108, USA Fodor's Choice

Surrounded by lush, perfectly manicured gardens and across from the beach, Santa Barbara's grande dame has long been a favorite for quiet, California-style luxury. The sumptuous 10,000-square-foot spa near the resort's pool and gardens, which includes 11 treatment rooms, is an oasis for rejuvenation. Guests also enjoy privileges (though entrance fees apply for some room types) at the historic, members-only Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club and Tydes restaurant across the street.
