Kindred 2024

El Encanto, A Belmond Hotel

Santa Barbara, California

The American Riviera

A five-star resort sanctuary of serenity and refined luxury...

Belmond is known for its enchanting restorations of historic gems. This magic extends to El Encanto, where the 1920's glory has been lovingly redesigned and showcased to highlight the property's beauty and charm. Across seven lush acres, bungalows and suites are nestled into gardens, amongst quiet pathways, and overlooking the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean. Afternoon light spills across the landscape where everything from the restaurant to the spa is dripping in Coastal California charm while staying true to the original colonial architecture that so defines Santa Barbara. Meander through the grounds past jasmine, roses, and monarch butterflies who claim El Encanto's oasis as their winter home. The lily pond, even a century after its construction, explodes in color and fragrance as the wisteria blooms in the early spring, and one truly feels as though you have stepped into a hideaway—something secret from the energy and pep of downtown Santa Barbara, though it is only a few short minutes from this hillside retreat. 

This indulgent venue is the host property of our first ever Collective, and we are thrilled, in partnership with Belmond, to welcome our attendees to this verdant, five-star resort.
