This oceanfront property has seen an infusion of $20 million since it was acquired by Pacific Hospitality Group in 2013. The latest upgrades were completed in November, including in-room advanced entertainment systems that provide customized messaging for groups. The renovation of 358 guest rooms was completed in July. There’s 70,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor event space and a 211-seat screening room.
The resort’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in the guest rooms’ automated lighting and climate controls, which help with energy conservation. Bacara also donated $150,000 worth of guest room furnishings to Habitat for Humanity, Catholic Charities and other organizations following the remodel.
“There will never be another resort like Bacara built on the California coast,” says Kory Kramer, chief investment officer of Pacific Hospitality Group. “We are committed to maintaining Bacara’s world-renowned reputation.”
