Located on 78 acres along a secluded stretch of coastline in Goleta, The Ritz-Carlton Bacara delights with its oceanfront setting, picturesque pools, indulgent spa, multiple restaurants, and Mediterranean charm. Rooms and suites include fine linens, large soaking tubs, and private patios or balconies (some offering a glimpse of the Pacific), while amenities are designed to ensure a stay feels special. Even more, the Bacara recently revealed several enhancements throughout the property, including refreshed interiors with breezy, coastal-inspired spaces and the much-anticipated The Ritz-Carlton Club® Lounge. Upgrade your room to include access to the Lounge and you’ll get to enjoy an indoor/outdoor communal space in which to eat, drink, and relax alongside fellow travelers. Here, you can nosh on culinary treats, sip an espresso or mimosa, sample wine from the one-touch wine dispenser, and make use of the concierge services — all of which are complimentary. Even if you don’t spring for The Ritz-Carlton Club® Lounge during your stay, be sure to pay a visit to the spa for luxurious skin and body treatments, where eucalyptus steam rooms, saunas, and a sun deck make it easy to unwind.
As part of the resort’s enhancements, the Ritz-Carlton Bacara has launched the Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment program to help guests discover the natural wonders of the Gaviota Coast. Daily expeditions are offered, where supervised activities for children and adults will have you exploring sea life, plant life, and the natural history of the area.
