Belmond el Encanto

Santa Barbara, California

This iconic resort — the only 1 in Santa Barbara to earn a 5-star rating from Forbes — has been pampering guests since the 1920s. With original architecture that blends sophistication and carefree California style, the hotel has also kept its atmosphere fresh with updates including a huge outdoor pool and a luxurious spa. Seven acres of gardens lend an air of seclusion, as well as beautiful Pacific views.
