Belmond El Encanto provides a variety of accommodation choices through its 92 rooms. Guests have a choice of suites and specialty suites located in the classical building, as well as one of the many bungalows on hotel grounds. These bungalows are decorated in either California Craftsman or Spanish Revival-style, and provide a luxurious and intimate retreat.
The bungalow rooms contain either one king sized or two queen sized double beds, and the sleeping area comes with an oversized workstation desk and chair, widescreen LCD HDTV with premium channels, soft armchairs or couch and an iPod dock. The rooms also contain a Nespresso coffee machine and an honor bar for guests’ convenience and comfort. The marble bathrooms are truly a treat, featuring heated stone floors and indulgent bathtubs – either free standing or deep soak, depending on the room.
Rooms are divided by views, and some also boast extra features; generally, king sized rooms are advertised as possibly containing fireplaces while double rooms are not. Superior Bungalow rooms have garden views and a king sized bed, being the most affordable of all accommodation choices.

One step up are the Deluxe Bungalow Double and Deluxe Bungalow King rooms – many have patios or balconies with outdoor seating and views are either of the hotel garden or the Californian coast. A few Double Bungalow King rooms even have quaint fireplaces to lend a cozy glow to evenings. These are the only rooms which potentially boast a sea view, for those who want to be able to see the ocean.
Premier Bungalow Double and Premier Bungalow King have furnished private patios or balconies, and the views on offer are the garden or, in some cases, the city of Santa Barbara. These view choices are shared by the Deluxe Premier Bungalow Double or King rooms, though the latter options feature more space in which to spread out.
