Hotel Overview

There was a time when getting away for a few days and coming back looking rested, rejuvenated and renewed wasn't considered an indulgence but a necessity.A time when afternoons were whiled away by the sea, under wide skies, warmed by the sun. Playing a game of croquet. Sipping a glass of chilled rosé. With clever friends. In good company. The feeling was completely informal and it was in precisely that very relaxed attitude that the luxury lay.

This is the essence of Bacara: Elegance, understatement, complete serenity. Every one of our 311 rooms and 49 specialty suites is like the rest of the resort: luxurious, understated, intimate and relaxed. Every room features a private patio or balcony.

From the 450 square foot Garden View room with lush panoramas of the gardens or courtyards to the The Residence which features 3,700 square feet of discretion and serenity spread over two stories, you'll find all the comforts of home, and then a few wonderful extras.

All are equipped with high speed internet access, multi-line phones, well-stocked mini bars, soft robes and slippers, Frette bed and bath linens, DVD players, and many other amenities. 42,000 square feet completely dedicated to refreshing and reviving you.

36 individual treatment rooms Private sunbathing with breathtaking ocean views Open air or indoor massage A 3500-square-foot cardiovascular and strength-training center Fitness classes and one-on-one training A heated zero-edge Saline-filled pool Swiss showers Personalized wellness programs A beauty salon The all-organic Spa Café And every conceivable treatment for both men and women by skilled, licensed professionals.

At Bacara, you'll find two renowned 18-hole courses that offer an inspiring combination of challenge and beauty, as well as preferred tee times for our guests.


Adjacent to the resort, Sandpiper is an inspiring combination of challenge and beauty as championship golf brings you to the edge of the Pacific Ocean. With breathtaking ocean and mountain views from every hole, Sandpiper is truly a memorable experience.

Glen Annie.

Two miles from Bacara. Renowned mountainside course with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains. Glen Annie is a championship level course and has been recommended by both Golf Digest and Fore magazine.

Much of what makes Bacara such a magical place is its unique location between the Pacfic Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains. Spread over 78 oceanside acres of sandy beaches and breathtaking bluffs, Bacara is inextricably linked to the sea. As a result, we've devised some wonderful opportunities for you to get your feet wet:

Single and tandem ocean kayaking Surf boards and body boards Exclusive sailboat, yacht or catamaran excursions Surfing, windsurfing and para gliding Whale watching Horseback riding Oceanfront biking trails
