Bacara Resort Spa: Pinnacle of Relaxation

What Do the Rooms Include?

All rooms come with queen- or king-sized beds, plus soaking tubs and private balconies. Suites with separate living and sleeping spaces are also available with luxurious amenities and features. For those looking for the ultimate in opulence, The Sea Haven and Penthouse are the pinnacle of vacation rentals, at 2,000 square feet each. 

What Amenities/Features are Available?

Set on 78 lush acres of gardens, Bacara Resort Spa has several sparkling oceanfront pools. There are several on-site, award-winning restaurants, including The Bistro, Beach House, and Foley Wine Tasting Room. A full-service spa on the grounds is the perfect place to be pampered. Delectable room service is available 24/7, and if you need assistance getting around, golf carts driven by dedicated staff are available to transport you wherever you'd like to go on the grounds. 

What are the Room Rates at Bacara Resort Spa?

Bacara Resort Spa's guest rooms are upwards of $600 a night, putting it in the higher range for resort spas. Suites are well over $1,000 a night. However, the immaculate grounds and unparalleled experience make the price worth it. Check regularly to catch seasonal specials. 

What's There to Do Nearby? 

Goleta is famous for its golf courses, and Bacara Resort Spa is located near three golf resorts with gorgeous manicured courses. Private lessons are available should you want to perfect your swing before hitting the course with your friends. Wine country tours are an enjoyable option for adult guests -- sample some of the legendary grapes and enjoy wine tastings overlooking the beautiful countryside. The beach is only a few minutes from the hotel. 

What Services are Available at The Spa?

With a full staff of experienced masseurs and aestheticians, The Spa at Bacara has more than 60 treatments to choose from, including different facials and massage treatments. A full redwood sauna helps remove toxins while the eucalyptus steam room awakens the senses. Call ahead to ensure you can have the spa experience of your dreams, and a dedicated representative will help you select from the menu of services to create the perfect spa trip. Check the hotel's website or call to find out about seasonal packages and specials.

What's the Bottom Line?

This hotel may seem a little high on the price range, but the hotel creates the perfect vacation experience with its immaculate facilities and attention to detail. If being near the ocean is on the top of your priority list, request a room in Unit 10, which has the rooms closest to the ocean. If you're bringing kids along, ask for a room closer to the pool!

Time Out
This picturesque getaway could be mistaken for the coast of Italy, set up with mediterranean-style villas spread out over a long stretch of beach in Goleta.
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.
All the rooms are designed with a... beach-chic vibe, but the ocean-view suites hold the key to Bacara's secret weapon: dramatic sea cliff vistas that open onto a wild stretch of beach.
