A Luxurious Spa Sanctuary at The Edge of California

Your path to wellness begins at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara. Here, locally inspired and luxury spa rituals pay tribute to the scenic California landscape in ways both enticing and effective. Indulge in a Signature Experience like The Hollywood Facial or Bacara Signature Massage to explore the possibilities of renewal. Or branch out with a treatment like the Spirulina Wrap, which uses live spirulina algae to revitalize the skin. Other services include acupuncture, massages, skincare and hair and nail services.

Set within the resort’s 78 acres, the spa encompasses 42,000 square feet and features a full selection of amenities, including a swimming pool, redwood sauna and eucalyptus steam room. Fireside lounges and a rooftop terrace offer additional spaces to relax, restore and enjoy the spa resort’s legendary Santa Barbara views.
