Bacara Resort Spa Getaway

Pacific Ocean breezes, services befitting royalty, and beautiful sunsets along the Santa Barbara coast…


I bet you’re asking, “Is that the hideaway resort flanked by celebrities?  The one I just saw pictures of Bill and Giuliana Rancic at last week?!”  Yes, my friend, that’s the one!

Pamper Yourself Prize Graphic


One lucky couple will be flown from anywhere in the Continental U.S. to Los Angeles where they’ll be chauffeured along the beautiful coastline of California to enjoy 4 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS at the ultra-posh, celebrity favorite, Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara.  Beware of the paparazzi because with so many celebrities flocking to this Forbes 4-star resort, you’re bound to get caught in the shutters of the elite.  Located along the Gaviota Coast, with spectacular views of the Pacific ocean, your stay at this exclusive resort will undoubtedly give you something to talk about for years to come.

From the moment you arrive at Bacara, you will be given 5-star treatment.  The 4-diamond spa will open its doors to you every day, throughout your stay, compliments of us! Aren’t you just dying over this prize??

And we’re still not finished!!

When was the last time you shut the world out and just allowed yourself to be pampered?  You and your guest will receive a FULL-BODY MASSAGE to melt your cares away.  Can’t you taste the chamomile tea and smell the lavender scent already?!  I bet you’re thinking that has to be the entire prize package. We have ONE more trick up our sleeves…

Last, but certainly not least!

You won’t have to fret even for a moment about making any of these plans yourselves. Along with this fabulous trip, complimentary access to this world-renowned spa, and spa treatments, you will be assigned a PERSONAL TRAVEL CONCIERGE who will make all your travel arrangements, coordinate your spa appointments and make sure every moment of your stay is perfect.  Throughout your time in Santa Barbara, your personal travel concierge will only be one call away.

    Thank you for this amazing opportunity to enter in this “Pamper Yourself” giveaway to the Bacara Spa and Resort. My husband and I have been married for 36 years, since he was 19 and I was “almost” 16, lol. We have raised our 2 sons, then 3 nephews for about 14yrs and now we are raising (adopted) our 2 grandchildren 4 and 5 yrs old. to be able to “pamper” ourselves would be out of this world! Maybe even “HEAVEN”.! Thank You again for this opportunity, Sincerely, Martha Cooper

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Wow! Congratulations on 36 years of marriage! If he was only 19, I imagine you never went on a honeymoon or anything like that, right? Oh, how I hope you win, Martha. That would be amazing!!

  • Ambani

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what about us…this is not fair I am in S.A

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Sorry, Ambani! You can definitely enter the giveaway, but unfortunately, the airfare from S.A. tothe States would not be covered. It’s so hard to do giveaways like this that are international because of the flights. In the US, it’s alot easier to get a sponsor because the airfare will rarely go above a certain amount. But internationally, that can balloon pretty high.

  • Danielle

    My husband and i have been married for close to a year and a half. We met in our early to mid 30′s, so we’ve loved spending time together and are waiting to spend a couple more years together before deciding on starting a family. We’ve always wanted to take a “honeymoon” like vacation. We didn’t have a honeymoon due to costs, jobs, etc., and we would LOVE this opportunity!!

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Oh, this would be amazing. Would love for you to have a honeymoon!

  • Alison Sutton

    Wow this is exactly what we need right now! God willing, if we win this it would be a great opportunity to refresh our marriage and rekindle some romance. It’s been a looooong year! Thank You!!!

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      It would be so cool to be like Oprah one day saying, “You get a trip! You get a trip!” Oh well, until then I guess we’ll do one giveaway at a time. Good luck!

  • Barbara Lima

    Wow!!!! This would be the perfect honeymoon for me and my soon-to-be hubby! We won’t be getting one after the wedding because he’s in the navy so I’m *praying* this works out! It sure would be amazing!

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Yeah! My hubby and I waited 6 months before going on a honeymoon. It made it even more special for us.

  • Darlene

    So excited this is a fabulous treat. My husband and I will be married 38 years the day after Christmas. We never had a honeymoon since I was in the Army at the time and had to return after we got married. We had 4 beautiful children with lots of ups and downs throughout our marriage, the loss of our oldest child 3 years ago. Her loss brought us closer as a family and made us realize how precious life can be and how important the love and support of family and friends can be when times are good and when they are at their worst. I would love to surprise my husband with a trip for just us, he is my rock and without him I would have not been able to do what I do everyday.

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Yeah!! Would love to be able to be a part of that surprise. So cool!

  • kristie

    I’m relatively new, I don’t recall ever leaving a comment before… but I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to make the happy wives club a wonderful inspirational place! you and your efforts are appreciated and loved ♥

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Thanks, Kristie! So appreciate your note (and you). <3

  • crcoy

    My husband and I have been married about a year and a half. We would be thrilled to take this trip because he is in Medical school and I work two jobs to support him. We could not afford to even take a weekend getaway at this point. Thank you for your ministry.

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Thank you for your encouragement. Here to support you and so honored to have this opportunity to do that!

  • kristie

    uh oh! :/ I thought I had followed all of the above on pintrest… and I filled out the form. but something went wrong, and only 3 follows worked. I went back and followed all again ;) lol I don’t expect to be so lucky as to win this wonderful trip, but if following somehow supports those who helped provide the opportunity for some lucky couple then I have done my part ♥

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Oh you should expect it! The last person who won our trip we did in March was surprised out of her mind. This time, it could be you! That would be super cool.

  • Bunny

    Awww! I would want to join! But Im from Asia! :(

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Go for it, Bunny! You can still enter if it’s legal in your province (you’d have to check because it’s too difficult for us to check every province). You’d get travel into the States (wherever it is cheapest for you to fly into) and we’ll fly you roundtrip from that point to the resort for your 4 days/3 night spa getaway.

  • Jonica Conner Suver

    This would be a blessing! We have been married 17 years & this last one was very rocky..2 of our children developed health concerns & other issues my husband faced just made life hard! But I am determined to be a Happy Wife & not let anything come between us no matter how hard! And this blog always centers me around that! It is so encouraging to see others support strong healthy marriages which then help their children!! Thank you!! Love the P interest boards too :)

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Yeah! Yes, they’re some of my absolute favorite boards.

  • Jessie

    Hi fawn, I can’t get the I heart nap time link to work. Can you post a link here?



    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Absolutely! I wonder why it didn’t work for you. Sometimes, if a Pinterest page has alot of boards (which hers does), it’ll take a long time to load and your browser will time out before it fully loads. Here’s the link and I hope it works for you because she’s got a great board: http://www.pinterest.com/iheartnaptime/

  • Ashley Coarts

    My husband and I could use this oh so much. My husbands father died before we got married, my Father fied last year and since then we’ve had 2 additional close family deaths. We’ve been unable to take a vacation because all of our savings went to taking time off during family’s time of illnesd and death. Very hsrd start to our marriage. We’ve been married 7 years this July. We have had our ups and downs but still are taking life a day at a time and trying to stay positive. This would be a dream come true for us and definitely help our emotional stability after these crazy few years.
    Thank You,
    Ashley Henkle Coarts

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Here’s to hoping dreams come true!

  • Jennifer Griffin Whitman

    My Husband and I could so use this vacation as we have been married 3 years now but have not had a honeymoon or vacation alone together as we have 4 kids together and any vacation is out of the budget. Our oldest is ours from when we were together 15 years ago as teenagers. Yes we have found love again 13 years later after moving in separate directions and moving on with our lives to both marry again and have more kiddos. We also were separated for a short time last year (3 months)and have gotten back on track and working together to make our lives happy together and as a family. It’s so easy to give up now a days, but we have chosen to fight for our marriage and love. We realize that the love we have for each other is ubreakable but we could so use this vacation to bond again together as a couple and rekindle our romance and love without the kiddos for a few days! (LOL) Thank you for this opportunity to win something and enter a contest for couples to bond and get away from worries of the world and stress of life. Thank you again

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Oh yes, that time to get away and just bond. We all need that so much, right?

  • Kelli Monte

    My husband and I will celebrate 23 years of marriage on November 10. What an amazing gift this would be!

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Just two days away… Happy 23rd birthday, Kelli!!

  • Radiah Graham

    We just celebrated one year of wedded bliss :-) a getaway would be like the honeymoon we never had!!!! good luck to us all!

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Happy anniversary! I loved our first year. And our second, And our third… And our ninth. And our tenth. :) Just have fun and don’t let anyone take away your happiness! <3

  • Jane Sandona

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      Oh my goodness, Jane. We’ve got to get you on a honeymoon!

      • Jane Sandona

        OK! Packed and ready to go! lol

  • Williesha Morris

    Our honeymoon cruise was ruined Hurricane Sandy and he got no pay during the shutdown but still had to work on our anniversary :-( Would love these. :-) :-)

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

      That would be awesome, Williesha!

  • Linda

    • http://www.happywivesclub.com/ Fawn @ Happy Wives Club

  • Dana Jordan

  • miranda

    This would be AMAZING!!

  • Brittany Morrison

    I think this is fabulous for you guys to do this! Thank you so much! It will be a major blessing and treat to someone! I would probably seriously faint if I won this and my hubby would to! Maybe we will :) :) :) Thanks again!!

  • Laura

    This would be awesome!! We’ve been married 15 years and still no honeymoon…yet. With 6 amazing kids its a bit tough to make that a priority.

  • Paulette Roman

    I would love and appreciate the giveaway….. We haven’t had a honeymoon and just got married at the justice of peace……we have 3 boys……so they are much more important and honestly we have only had 3 weekends alone since we have been together 2 years now :-( but I live every minute with every one happily…..

  • Marian Jonkman Sweetland

    Thank you for this gift of a holiday giveaway Fawn. What a wonderful opportunity for a couple to spend time together without the $ hanging above their head. My husband & I have been married just over 28 years & yes, there were times when it would have seemed easier to cave & be another divorce statistic…..but, you always, always need to go back in time & remember, “I Do.” And since then it is “I Will.” Understanding that vow you made to your spouse & to God reminds you to follow all the guidelines put forth from that day…”to love & honour all the days of my life.” I have an awesome husband & 3 beautiful children aged 17, 20 & 25 still at home. My 91 year old father lives with us too, so he benefits from their love & laughter. Thank you for your lovely posts. I love sharing them with others. :) We haven’t really had a honeymoon other than a week of camping when we were first married. This would be an amazing opportunity….and a bit of a challenge, as I don’t leave home too easily. But should we win…..I’ll do my best! Take much care.

  • Ashlee K Davis

    Thank you to all that made this chance possible. The Pinterest boards look intriguing too.

  • Terri Matlock

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway! :) I would love to win! Could use a nice “getaway/honeymoon” with my hubby. <3

  • Jhvonne Higgins

    Fawn thank you so much for this opportunity. I know there are so many deserving couples that you could be blessed by this opportunity!

  • Cari W.

    Wow! What an incredible opportunity! Thank you for putting this together! My husband left for a deployment only 3 months after we got married (no honeymoon). It would be so fun to surprise him when he gets home! :)

  • Holly Spinks

    Thank you for putting together this amazing giveaway. This would be such a dream come true for my husband and I. We would be so very grateful and appreciative of an opportunity like this to spend time together. Thank you again, keeping our fingers crossed! :)
