For those of you who want to kick back, relax, distress, and drink wine and eat good food, Bacara Spa Resort in Goleta, CA is the place to go. The service is impeccable from the minute you check in. The rooms are cozy with lovely views of the property and an inviting bathtub to decompress at the end of the day. My massage therapist made me feel like a new woman. I recommend the 80 minute deep tissue massage.
If you want a five star dinner you must try MIRO. If you feel like taking a drive into Santa Barbara, eat at Bouchon. The tappas are to die for. Also take a drive into Montecito and have dinner at Luckys which is one of my favorites. The filet mignon melts in your mouth. Great energy.
Bacara is a great place for couples who are looking for a romantic getaway!
