Bacara Resort & Spa now bears The Ritz-Carlton tag

Following an extensive renovation, the coastal hotel is now open as The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara

Recently acquired by Carey Watermark Investors Incorporated and Carey Watermark Investors 2 Incorporated, the former Bacara Resort & Spa has undergone a multi-million-dollar renovation of all 358 guestrooms and suites as well as enhancements to the resort’s six culinary venues.

Located on 78 acres of exclusive California coastline, The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara offers direct beach access and three salt-water swimming pools, a 42,000-square foot luxury spa with 36 treatment rooms, a salon and a fitness center, as well as ample indoor and outdoor event space. The resort is situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountain.

As a part of this conversion, significant additional investments are planned for resort enhancements to meeting and event venues, main lobby, food and beverage outlets, the fitness center, pools, and spa. The work will also include the construction of a new Ritz-Carlton Club Loungea communal space.

The property joins the brand’s portfolio of hotels in California, including properties such as The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles; The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey; The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage; The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco; The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe; The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel; and The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay.
