Guests will be able to sip hot cocoa and stargaze this holiday

Perhaps this year, spend Christmas by the pool.

The Bacara Resort & Spa is offering a wide variety of holiday events and specials for guests. Situated just north of Santa Barbara in Goleta, California, the resort is located on 78 beachfront acres and houses a 42,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, 358 guest rooms and suites, clay tennis courts, and the new Angel Oak steakhouse.

Guests can participate in the tree lighting festivities from Dec. 21 to 24. Mingle and enjoy hot cider and cookies while admiring the Christmas tree art installation in the lobby. Winter provides beautiful Bacara sunsets, and guests can sip hot cocoa and use cliffside telescopes for stargazing between Dec. 23 and 30.

Angel Oak is offering a variety of à la carte Christmas specials, including Passmore Ranch caviar with crème fraîche and hard-boiled eggs; roasted whole Dover sole; prime rib with Yorkshire pudding; and a festive Yule log dessert.


The spa is offering a Diamond White Facial with a glass of poinsettia sparkling wine, as well as a Mulled Massage with clove, cinnamon, and fir plus a hot stone foot ritual and a glass of sparkling wine infused with fresh cranberries.
