BACARA RESORT & SPA
Nestled on the bluff and beaches of the Central California Coast between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains, Bacara offers comfortable luxury and incomparable natural beauty. Our Santa Barbara hotel features direct access to beautiful beaches, world-class golf and wine country.
Adjacent to the resort community of Santa Barbara, the four-star Bacara Resort & Spa is located along California’s most spectacular stretch of Pacific paradise, between the ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains. Just ten minutes from the Santa Barbara Municipal Airport, Bacara is approximately 90 miles north of Los Angeles (90 minutes by car) or three hours from LA via the scenic Amtrak “Surfliner.” The resort is a five-hour drive from San Francisco.
With 78 acres of ocean front property – including two miles of natural beach – Bacara Resort & Spa offers an expansive sun-drenched setting with endless vistas of sea and sky, while the resort’s innovative and artful design – low-storied buildings, terraced to the sea and connected by meandering garden paths – is in keeping with the intimacy and aesthetics of a Mediterranean village
Complete with flower-filled courtyards, restful fountains and red-tiled roofs, Bacara is the perfect place to enjoy the leisurely pace and warm embrace of the California lifestyle, where the climate is Mediterranean – mild and sunny, with average daytime temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees. Cool, crystal-clear nights are ideal for stargazing (unlike most Southern California coastal areas, where the concentration of urban lights and frequent nighttime cloud cover can obscure even the moon).

Foley Food & Wine Society Tour
Offered exclusively to guests of Bacara, the tour includes barrel tastings, “soil to bottle” tours and access to private estate quarters at the Firestone, Foley and Lincourt vineyards with door to door transportation in a luxury SUV.
Firestone Vineyard is set in Los Olivos, a charming little village in the Santa Ynez Valley.
Lincourt retains the rural charm and simplicity of an earlier era.
Founded in the mid-1980s by the Arciero family and over the years has received rave reviews for its Zinfandels, Cabernets and "Tears of Dew" Moscato dessert wines.
The winery’s success can be attributed to strict winemaking protocols and two extraordinary estate vineyards.
