A classic, still.
After anxiously awaiting the re-opening of the El Encanto we were so pleased to see that the lush beauty, architectural style and spirit of the hotel has been maintained. Kudos to the hotel’s management for its hands-on and personal interest in guests. The entire staff was delightful, making us feel both at home and pampered. And we loved, loved the new saltwater infinity pool. Santa Barbara is our favorite get away destination from Los Angeles. And when we feel like treating ourselves its so nice to know that our once favorite hotel---- still is.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Belmond El Encanto, a Forbes Five-Star luxury hotel, has been meticulously restored to capture all the romance and glamour that endeared it to both the local Santa Barbara community and visitors alike. As part of Belmond, this is the company's first excursion to the American west coast.
Ninety-two quintessential, California-styled suites and bungalows dot the lush, terraced grounds featuring seven-acres of gloriously landscaped gardens with sweeping views of Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean.
Original architectural features have been lovingly restored, including the historic, trellis-lined Arbor and Lily Pond. Modern additions to the expansive outdoor zero-edge pool and a new beautifully appointed boutique spa enhance the journey for today's luxury-seeking guest. ... more less
