Celebrating 101 years on Highway 101, Belmond El Encanto, the original Hollywood hideaway, marks the occasion by paying homage to silver screen glamour with a series of special events that capture the romance and nostalgia of the golden age of cinema. Experiences include driving a vintage car along highway 101, movie nights under the stars showcasing the best of California on film, limited edition picnic hampers for day tripping along the pacific coast and celebration cocktails. 

HIGHWAY HIDEAWAY 

Arriving in true Hollywood style, guests can take a vintage car along the iconic Highway 101 to the American Riviera and escape to one of Santa Barbara’s most romantic retreats set in the tranquil hills. The ultimate road tripper’s dream becomes a reality as they get behind the wheel of a Porsche Speedster or 1965 Ford Mustang. 

CALIFORNIA CLASSICS 

The hotel’s picturesque swimming pool provides the perfect setting for movie nights under the stars where a series of film screenings run throughout the summer months, showcasing Californian favourites through the years, from The Graduate (1967) to LA Confidential (1997) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988). 

PICNIC ALFRESCO 

Bespoke picnic baskets are prepared by the hotel chef for guests to accompany them on adventures in the Golden State including sailing trips, relaxing days at the beach or a glamorous day at a Santa Barbara polo match. The luxurious, limited-edition hampers feature delicious, locally sourced treats such as homemade chocolate candies and gourmet popcorn. 

COCKTAILS AND CROQUET 

Belmond El Encanto creates a special menu of celebratory cocktails inspired by the hotel’s glamorous legacy. Guests can enjoy the refreshing ‘101 Spritz’ or the warm and spicy ‘American Riviera’. A vintage cocktail cart will deliver these tasty tipples to poolside guests throughout the summer season and lawn games such as croquet and bocce are available to pass the time whilst enjoying the sweeping views of Santa Barbara and the sparkling Pacific Ocean. 

WINE DOWN 

After a day exploring the enchanting Sunstone Winery and feeding the senses with some of the best organic wines in the region, expertly paired with artisanal charcuterie, guests can retreat to the hotel spa and indulge in a personalised treatment.
