We be have been to El Encanto twice and each time it’s exceeded our expectations! We were upgraded to an outrageous suite with the most beautiful patio and two fireplaces. The room and grounds are so beautiful - but the service is what makes this hotel special. It is the perfect escape from LA for us - far enough that it feels like a real getaway - but close enough that it’s not too time consuming to get to. Oh and the food at the restaurant is fabulous and impressed my husband (who Is very hard to impress). I’m already booking our next stay!

El Encanto is a beautiful hotel with amazing views. We love that it’s secluded from the ‘touristy’ parts of Santa Barbara. The rooms are romantic and the staff has exceptional customer service.... they are always there with a smile to help make our stay perfect, which is a big part of us making it habit to visit often.

Really enjoyed location, service and products
Had a long stay and everyone made me feel welcome comfortable The location is outstanding and the view sublime All the cottages are different and you are not feeling like a standard hotel It has its own ambiance and made you feel special What a dream place one hour from Los Angeles.

Lovely hotel and grounds; great service team. Our suite (Hummingbird) is especially lovely, with fireplace, outdoor shower, great central location). Always treated like a VIP by staff, which operates at highest standards.

From check-in to check-out and everything in-between, Belmond El Encanto exceeds and delivers excellence. Great views of Santa Barbara, diverse food options and pristine grounds make this a destination to enjoy. Ultimate get-a-way location with access to anything your heart desires ...
