Bacara Resort and Spa

    Inspired by the glam of Old Hollywood, this Spanish Colonial–style, beachfront spa offers dazzling views of the Pacific coastline and Santa Ynez mountains. Water is a main feature: Heated infinity-edged pools are surrounded by private cabanas complete with dining attendants and wireless Internet access. The spa spans three levels and features 36 treatment rooms. Specialty Sonya Dakar’s signature 80-minute age-control facial, which incorporates her exclusive interval massage technique, is the hot ticket. Rates From $450 per night.
