Best Valentines Day EVER
Truly a dream experience! Macy hooked us up with an amazing suite perfect for Valentines Day weekend. My girlfriend and I are sober and when we entered the room there was a bottle of sparkling cider, along with a charcuterie and strawberries dipped in chocolate. Will definitely come back! Shoutout to Macy for making it extra special.
Belmond el Encanto - great break in Santa Barbara
Relaxing break at Belmond el Encanto at the end of our honeymoon! Top class service, amazing views over Santa Barbara, very green and quaint grounds and a heated infinity pool Truly enjoyed our two nights stay and would look to come back
A magnificent hotel from beginning to end!
Such a beautiful spa at this hotel. My wife recently visited before we took a vacation to get a spray tan, and she has not stopped raving about how wonderful it was ever since! It was so nice to see how much it increased her confidence! Danielle was the one that provided the service, and she went out of her way to make my wife feel comfortable and taken care of, and beautiful. We already cannot wait to visit again so we can receive other services from Danielle as well. The treatment was arranged by Clarice the spa manager, who was kind and helpful. We have stayed at this hotel many times and the Executive Assistant Macy always makes sure we are well taken care of- she is the most valuable employee they have! We will be back soon, thanks to the outstanding staff.
A Beautiful, Hidden Gem
Belmond El Encanto! We love this place! We can’t give it enough praises. Located on a hillside, it is a quiet, hidden gem minutes from Santa Barbara’s shops and restaurants. The fabulous staff go above and beyond with any of your needs. This hotel has an outstanding restaurant, a heated zero edge pool, spectacular views, acres of gorgeous landscaping, fitness studio, and a fantastic spa. This is not your typical hotel. It feels more like a home, our home away from home. Any one staying in Santa Barbara MUST experience this hotel, even if it is for just one night. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
We stayed at the El Encanto for three nights in January. Everything about our stay was exquisite. We were greeted warmly, shown to a very comfortable room, and then dined on the covered terrace overlooking a drop dead gorgeous view of the ocean. Service was exemplary in all respects. The grounds are immaculately maintained, and the pool area very inviting and comfortable. The exercise facilities were well appointed and very clean. The gentlemen who provided the valet service were prompt and very friendly. We dined in the restaurant every day, and the food was always good, and the service excellent. There's really nothing negative I can say about this place, and can't wait to return!
