Santa Bárbara Eco Beach Resort

Santa Bárbara Eco Beach Resort

Sleekly designed studios and villas blend effortlessly into surroundings here. The interior of this boutique hotel is a subtle dance of soothing blues and greens against polished concrete and warm wood. The restaurant uses organic produce from their own farm, and the spa treatments are all organic and seaweed-based as well. If you pay close attention you will notice that the furniture is often made from discarded materials.

Food & Drink

top table

At the ocean-view restaurant, the best tables all have great views - on the terrace on balmy evenings or next to the window on cooler nights.

Dinner at Santa Bárbara eco-resort is a local affair: meat, fish, seafood, vegetables, fruits and herbs from the hotel's 4,000-square-meter organic garden provide the inspiration for a seasonal, changing menu that focuses on dishes from the farm. At lunch, sandwiches, pasta and salads are available. Down by Santa Bárbara beach, the Beach Club is a nice place for snacks or lunch, serving salads and poke bowls.

Caractère review

Santa Barbara eco-resort is a boutique hotel that whispers rather than shouts. Subtle and quiet, it blends completely into its surroundings. Eco-friendly and organic products are key. With this place, you stay at the pace of the waves and the sound of the wind.
