Retreat to the Big Sur coast and find your Zen at the 4.5-star Ventana Inn & Spa. Perched 1,200 feet above the Pacific on more than 200 acres of meadows and wooded hillsides, this adults-only resort is a favorite among celebrities and regular folks looking for a luxurious locale to commune with nature.
Complimentary daily guided nature walks are a great way to explore the natural surroundings. The two outdoor pools (one of which is clothing-optional) are ideal for basking in the sun in the warmer months. Both pools are open year-round and are maintained at a comfortable 80 degrees. If it’s too chilly to enjoy a swim, try a soak in the Japanese hot baths or warm up in the dry sauna. Get centered with daily yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi classes. Or simply pull up a lawn chair and gaze at the expansive views of the Pacific.
Guest rooms are designed to bring the outdoors in with natural wood, slate floors and plenty of windows. Bathrooms feature walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs. Fireplaces, available in some rooms, add a cozy element to this coastal retreat.
The Restaurant at Ventana offers a menu focused on highlighting the bounty of the Central California Coast through locally sourced ingredients. The continental breakfast, included for all guests as part of the resort fee, includes quiche, fresh baked pastries, fresh seasonal berries, espresso drinks and more. The outdoor patio is a lovely spot to enjoy a meal, weather permitting, with some tables boasting impressive ocean views.
Note: There is a $40 (plus tax) nightly resort fee. The resort fee covers parking, Wi-Fi, continental breakfast, morning yoga classes, guided Discovery Walks, nightly wine and cheese reception, pool and fitness center access and shuttle service for guests wishing to dine off-site.
