I have been looking at spas in the Santa Barbara area for my upcoming wedding and I was referred to the Bacara. My fiance and I traveled there for the day to check it out and we were more than pleasantly surprised. Not only is the setting absolutely stunning, but the staff was incredibly kind and attentive. We were warmly greeted by Anthony and he took us on a tour of the facility with enthusiasm that was contagious! I was so impressed, that I ended up booking a night there a few weeks later and found the service consistent. I wish I could stay there every weekend! Everyone I have spoken with from Lauren, Anthony, and Shana at the Spa, to Anne and others in management, to the waitstaff at the restaurants, I was impressed! They also have a fabulous guitarist, Chris Fossek, who plays certain nights at the gorgeous bar. Lovely!
