For restaurant recommendations:
Drawing soothing elements from the ocean below, Spa at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara offers a holistic wellness retreat to transform guests not only in the moment but for the days ahead. Guests can immerse themselves in the spa experience with an adults-only pool, redwood sauna, eucalyptus steam room, fireside lounges, and a rooftop terrace. Treatments, including massage, body, and skincare therapies, are performed by our experts using the finest products. A full-service salon offers hair, nail, makeup, and waxing services, and the boutique carries a curated selection of spa products, swimwear, and fitness apparel. Reservations are subject to availability, and it is strongly recommended that you schedule your spa treatment/services at least 5 to 6 weeks in advance so that your scheduling requests can be met. A credit card will be required to guarantee services at the time of booking. A 24-hour cancellation notice is required to avoid a full price charge for any scheduled services.
