Bacara was just what we needed for a relaxing retreat. We loved the spa! If I lived closer, I would go all the time for the day. This spa was quiet, clean and my masseuse was great. I could tell she was well trained. Our room was really nice with a big tub, private veranda, and a very comfortable bed. We walked all around and took in the beautiful views, everywhere. Very peaceful. We had planned on going into downtown Santa Barbara for dinner a few times, but instead just stayed at Bacara and relaxed.
