So if you're in Santa Barbara and you're looking to slip into something a little more comfortable - be it a massage or a sauna or something else entirely - this is the list for you. Here you'll find the 10 best spas in town and all the information you need to book an appointment or two.
Many of the best resorts have spas built right into them, so if you're staying at the Four Seasons Resort the Biltmore Santa Barbara or the Bacara Resort and Spa, you're all set.

With your treatment you gain access to the pool area at both hotels, something certainly worth considering.
