Discover Après Sea at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara

Indulge in wellness experiences and cocktails with the coastal version of “après ski” with Après Sea at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara.

As we transition into the summer months, California quickly shifts from slopes and hot cocoa into a hub for sorbet-colored sunsets, long days at the beach and relaxing retreats. Lucky for Californians craving a summery getaway, The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara is launching its newest activation, Après Sea, throughout the warmer months. 

So, what does an Après Sea experience entail for resort visitors? Beginning on May 1 at 6 p.m. daily, guests can choose from one of the three activities that best suits their version of an “escape.”

If you’re looking for a luxe and tropical-inspired drink after a day in the sun, head to the Hibiscus Lounge where bartenders are serving up the Après Sea Cocktail, a butterfly pea pollen-infused beverage to sip and toast to the local Gaviota butterfly migration. The drink continues to intrigue as the ingredients change colors from blue to lush purple to bright pink–reminiscent of the California coastal sunsets that can be viewed anywhere from The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara. 

If you’re looking for a peaceful walk by the sea, join hotel naturalist guides on a sunset reset beach walk during peak golden hours. This short-and-sweet 20-minute activity is the perfect family-friendly activity and requires no advance reservations. 

And if you’re not relaxed enough from a tasty cocktail and evening stroll, head to The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara’s 25,000-sq.-ft. spa for the ultimate indulgence. The Après Sea Soothing Wrap features a 50-minute resetting massage that gently nourishes, exfoliates and nurtures sun-kissed skin. To finish your treatment beach-style, an algae envelopment, cooling body moisturizer and tantalizing scalp massage will transport you into optimal relaxation.
