San Ysidro Ranch I Santa Barbara, CA I 90 miles from West LA

Forty one individually decorated private cottages and hideaways wind along San Ysidro's hillside creek- and tree-lined paths. Built in classic bungalow style, all offer plush king-size beds with fine linens, fireplaces and patios. The luxury Montecito resort's suites and cottages feature hot tubs on private outdoor patios with outdoor rain showers, hand-cut stone or Old World masonry fireplaces, radiant-heated bathroom floors, curved-screen HDTVs and hand-selected antique furnishings.

Nestled in the Montecito foothills of Southern California's wine country, San Ysidro Ranch has provided a tranquil destination for discriminating travelers for over a century. Guests are drawn to the Santa Barbara hideaway for its blend of natural beauty, romantic heritage and classic luxury. Myth and history mingle in the lush gardens where Vivien Leigh and Sir Laurence Olivier exchanged vows; in the setting of John and Jackie Kennedy's honeymoon retreat.

The Ranch occupies over 500 rolling acres of unspoiled coastal landscape between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Dazzling 360 views turn from the Channel Islands beyond Santa Barbara, to rambling canyons under ancient canopies of Eucalyptus. Fragrant Magnolia and orange blossoms perfume the countryside. The light in these gentle hills is Artist’s Light – scrubbed clean by the sea, a prism of pure color.

The Pacific is the focus from nearly every point of this luxury hotel: restaurants overlook it, the spa is inspired by it and event spaces frame it beautifully.

Be sure to follow your bliss and escape to 42,000 square feet of serenity and relaxation at The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara. The hotel’s day spa provides a comprehensive, holistic retreat that begins upon arrival. Guests are invited to explore the pool, redwood sauna, eucalyptus steam room, fireside lounges and rooftop terrace.
