No trip to Santa Barbara is complete without a bit of pampering. The Spa at Bacara boasts a Four-Star award, and its placement between the Santa Ynez Mountains and Pacific Ocean means its location is key. Relax with a variety of spa treatments from around the world at Bacara, including an Eastern Origins menu and Ayurveda techniques. Post-session, be sure to save time for the saline-filled pool. Another great Four-Star option is The Spa at Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara. Treatment rooms feel residential — complete with kiva fireplaces and mission-style furniture — and signature services such as the Vineyard Harvest and Grape de Vine incorporate grape seed. Head 35 miles south of Santa Barbara to unwind at Four-Star Spa Ojai. The 31,000-square-foot oasis offers a signature communal Kuyam treatment, which combines the effects of cleansing mud, dry heat, inhalation therapy and guided meditation.
