Belmond El Encanto is actually 92 rooms built as bungalows, both California Mission style with traditional red-tiled roofs and white stucco walls, and classic California Craftsman with its emphasis on simple clean lines and earthy wood tones. All of the bathrooms have either deep soaking or freestanding tubs and white marble countertops with radiant heated floors, not that it gets very cold here. There are hardwood floors in both styles of accommodations at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel as well as kitchenettes. The functional and uncomplicated layout immediately makes you feel comfortable. The Mission rooms with their immaculate white walls and the Craftsmen rooms with pastel and earthen colors both use dark-toned wood furniture to accent the spaces.
