The Best Santa Barbara Spas: The Ultimate 2018 Guide



Know someone in need of rest and rejuvenation? Santa Barbara has some of the very best spas in the world to soothe and renew any tired spirit. Here’s the Ultimate 2018 Spa Guide highlighting what makes each one a unique and invaluable experience.

Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara

1260 Channel Drive, Santa Barbara, CA., 93108 (805) 969-2261

The Biltmore Resort is spectacularly unforgettable. Built in 1927 and located on the most beautiful beach in Santa Barbara, called Butterfly Beach, this gorgeous 22 acre resort is surrounded by a lush botanic garden and gleams with gracefully curving, Spanish Colonial architecture. The vibe is classic, old-world elegance and the feel is warm, relaxed and inviting.

The Biltmore is solid as a rock and beautiful as a swan. Every detail of this verdant oceanfront resort is memorable. From the restored 18k gold painted ceiling to the hand crafted spanish tiles on the floor. It will all leave you mesmerized.

Luckily you don’t need to be a hotel guest to enjoy the spa but you will want to be. Many of the beautiful bungalow suites have their own steam shower, heated plunge pool, and gorgeous private patio featuring an outdoor fireplace. You can treat yourself to a private massage in your suite or venture down the seaside jungle paths to enjoy their award-winning spa.


The Biltmore’s unique beauty combined with the romantic ambience, stellar Four Seasons customer service, and incredible oceanfront dining may hypnotize you into wanting to move in permanently. The place feels utterly magical which is why many couples decide to be married here. And don’t be surprised if you get lucky and catch a glimpse of a magnificent whale breaching the turquoise ocean waters while you’re lunching on the patio at Bella Vista. I did!

The 12,000 square foot spa includes a top notch gym, elegant swimming pool, and the softest spa robes made on planet earth. The cozy steam room, sauna and spectacular ocean view, fireside lounge are waiting for you there.

There are 11 lavish treatment rooms including 3 ocean view spa suites. I highly recommend booking a Couples Suite Retreat in the luxurious and romantic VIP Suite which has its own steam shower, bubbly soaking tub, fireplace and oceanfront terrace. This side by side massage is a perfect way to start any romantic weekend.

And if you’re looking for the very best, most effective facial available, the Biltmore has that too. It’s called In-Skin. This incredible high-tech, 6 in 1 facial gives immediate and lasting results and is only available at a few select spas in the world. Your skin will be completely transformed before your eyes. It’s like a facelift without the facelift. Apparently In-Skin is often requested on movie sets for actors wanting to instantly look their very best. Check out more In-Skin details here.
