A destination since 1917, the Hyatt Carmel Highlands, Big Sur Coast is noted as one of the world's finest hotels by both Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. A gathering place for artists over the years, the hotel is now a favorite for those seeking a serene stay on the California coast. Guests say the service is impeccable, and the Pacific Ocean provides a breathtaking backdrop.

Rooms are decked out with private patios, luxury bath products, bathrobes and high-tech amenities for those who need to stay plugged in. The Ocean View rooms look out on the rugged coastline and come with wood-burning fireplaces, while Suites and Premium Suites come with fully equipped kitchens, living and dining areas, a wood-burning fireplace and Jacuzzi tubs.

Award-winning dining awaits at California Market at Pacific’s Edge -- newly renovated with a 1,200-square-foot deck, louvered roof and glass-panel walls, it offers iconic views of the Pacific Ocean and Big Sur coast alongside local and organic food. Head to the on-site Sunset Lounge to catch -- what else? -- panoramic sunset views.
