Book a bungalow at the Belmond El Encanto to experience one of Santa Barbara's most legendary properties. Perfectly situated in a secluded, quiet part of town, the El Encanto is famous for its romantic views and luxury standards. Long a favorite of the Hollywood crowd, the recently renovated El Encanto treats every guest like a VIP--right down to outfitting your bed with appropriately monogrammed linens. Book the "Retreat to Romance package" and your stay will include a bottle of champagne, couples massage and candlelit turndown service. There is a spa, restaurant and bar onsite. Stroll the lush grounds or pause for a refreshing cocktail, and you'll feel transported above stress of daily life, exactly the goal at the El Encanto.
