El Encanto Santa Barbara

El Encanto is located in one of California’s most beautiful seaside cities, Santa Barbara. El Encanto is perched 500 feet above seal level immersed in lavish gardens perfectly positioned five minutes away from the historic downtown Santa Barbara, giving the hotel the benefit of quiet intimate seclusion as well as city life within a reasonable radius. El Encanto’s cottages and villas inspired by colonial Spanish architecture overlook the Pacific Ocean and have become an integral part of Santa Barbara’s social, cultural, and architectural heritage for the last 90 years. These quaint yet luxurious cottages are tucked away among beautiful landscape gardens, adding to the romanticism of the location. Enjoy the resort’s renowned California French cuisine consisting of California Spiny Lobster on Smoked Bacon Risotto. To make the most of the location the resort’s amenities included a luxury heated outdoors pool, tennis courts, horseback riding on the nearby beaches. If you are craving culture, the resort also provides additional excursions upon request of local vineyards, museums and a tour of historical landmarks.
