The Bacara Resort And Spa is located along 78 acres of ocean front property, with a 2-mile stretch of natural beach which was beautiful to look at, unfortunately, it comes with a major downside…TAR!!!
For some reason there are no warning signs about the tar anywhere on the property. But if you don’t mind relaxing by the pool and having a spa day looking at the ocean knowing you can’t touch it.. ENJOY! because it is a wonderful premise.
Other than the tar on the beach, the rest of the resort is truly beautiful. The Spa is in a league of its own, offering a 42,000 square foot facility complete with a Redwood sauna, luxurious whirlpool and steam rooms, an adults-only zero-edge saline pool, a cozy fireside lounge and rooftop terrace. Adjacent to the spa is an amazing Fitness Center, which includes a 3,500 square foot cardiovascular and strength training center, yoga and Pilates studios, and four Har-Tru surface tennis courts. Complimentary fitness classes and walks are available to those wishing to add an active element to their relaxing get-away, while private and semi-private Pilates and yoga sessions as well as personal training are also available.
The quick 10 minute drive into Santa Barbara, makes it convenient to experience all of the wonderful restaurants Santa Batbara has to offer. And if you prefer to dine at the resort, a must try is Miró, a four star restaurant at the resort, named for the Spanish abstract impressionist, Joan Miró. The food is delicious & the presentation is outstanding.
