I adore California and try to make my way there as often as I can so as to enjoy the sand, the sea, and the surf. I love going to every public and private beach that I can reach and while I love eating street food by the beach, there are times when I need a little bit more R&R so I end up going to more exclusive and luxurious hotels where I can really let go and live, if you know what I mean.
Now, don’t take this to mean I’m some sort of jet-setting brat—I am not. But I do like to treat myself to a well-deserved vacation every now and then. Whenever I have the time or when I feel like I need some serious rest, I like to book a night or two in luxe escapes where I can really unwind. If you feel the same way as I do or if you are looking to go on a real vacation, below are some of the most luxurious getaways in Sta. Barbara California.
Luxurious Spots in Santa Barbara, CA
- Bacara Resort and Spa – The first time I saw an ad for this resort and spa, knew I had to give it a go. While I haven’t yet booked a room here, I made sure to check it out the last time I was in Santa Barbara and it was every bit as beautiful as I imagined. It reminded me of the Greek Isles or some other exotic destination.
