Santa Barbara may be bursting with gotta-try activities, must-see sites, and taste-this wineries and restaurants, but to truly immerse yourself in the city’s distinctive smell-the-roses spirit, be sure to save some time to savor a relaxing treatment at one of our many spas. And just because we’re talking about downtime doesn’t mean you have to downshift the sense of exploration that’s the best part of any vacation; this is Santa Barbara, after all! So expect your massage, facial or body wrap to come with a health-forward twist or a slightly adventurous edge that reflects the ethos of The American Riviera®, always informed by the town’s signature understated sophistication.

At Hotel Californian, Majorelle invites guests to discover the sublimity of one-of-a-kind spa treatments. The stunning spa was distinctly designed in Moroccan blue, allowing the rich indigo pigments to inspire intense revitalization.

For a double dose of healing and relaxation, visit a Himalayan Salt Cave, where you’ll experience the physiological benefits of halotherapy while your body and mind enjoy the calming bliss of a Swedish massage. Or have a truly blissful experience in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara as all your cares float away at Float Luxury Spa. After a dreamlike treatment, spend time outdoors meditating in its lush urban oasis.

If your taste runs more traditional, Santa Barbara has no shortage of options for everyday indulgences, like manicures and pedicures, facials and massages. Book an experience at one of Santa Barbara’s luxury resorts, like the spectacular The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara, El Encanto, A Belmond Hotel, San Ysidro Ranch or Rosewood Miramar Beach for a treatment fit for royalty.
