Perched high in the Santa Barbara hills, this iconic hideaway offers the best views of the American Riviera.
This is close enough to Los Angeles to ooze Hollywood glamour in a modern classic, yet far enough up the coast to be a true getaway, even for the Hollywood elite.
Spread across seven acres of secluded gardens, El Encanto opened in 1918 and has been part of Santa Barbara’s social scene ever since. The resort is gleaming and glamorous, yet relaxed and low key. The kind of place that invites you to recline poolside, breathe in the ocean air, and sip a glass of crisp local wine.
