    Website: California Resorts : Bacara Resort & Spa - Santa Barbara

    On the website you can download the catering menus which includes pricing, as well as submit a wedding inquiry. I used to work there, so feel free to PM me with any questions and I will try my best to answer or find the answer.

    They have an incredible Spa (2nd largest in California) which you can use even if you aren't a guest. They have some really delicious restaurants on site, including a Spa Cafe, which is right next door to the Spa and Spa Pool. I highly recommend you check out the Spa if you are in Santa Barbara. They also have a salon if you want to have a massage and get your hair done for any pre-wedding events. The Spa menu including pricing can be downloaded on their website.
