Who doesn’t love a bike ride in a beautiful Southern California town? That’s the thinking behind the latest news from the Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara, where a new fleet of BCycle electric bikes is being rolled out just in time for Valentine’s Day. In addition to the resort’s cool, sophisticated Mediterranean style, guests can enjoy two gorgeous beaches, three saltwater infinity pools, a massive spa, and myriad other amenities.
There’s not a single aspect of this resort that doesn’t play well into an unforgettable weekend of romance, but it doesn’t hurt that it is still rolling out all the bells and whistles this Valentine’s Day.
The Deal: it’s not always about the discounts. In this case it’s about the special activities, and this Ritz is rolling out the red carpet for couples seeking something different. In addition to e-bike rides, guests can enjoy Couples Paint and Pinot, driftwood painting, couples yoga, and a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt (these are always a blast at Ritz properties across the country). Two new spa treatments, Love Rose Quartz Facial and the Diamond Rose Body Experience, are also offered only for the holiday. To top it all off, a special four-course dinner is being offered at Angel Oak only on February 13 and Valentine’s Day.
But if you’re looking for a real deal, you can’t go wrong with an extended stay.
The Time: The BCycle bikes are permanent, but the experiences are exclusive to Valentine’s Day.
