Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • A serene, luxurious resort for nature lovers with breathtaking ocean views
  • Two outdoor pools with Japanese hot baths -- one is clothing-optional
  • The hotel has an array of luxurious guestrooms, but also offers glamping tents on property


Retreat to the Big Sur coast and find your Zen at the luxurious Ventana Big Sur, which completed a $20 million renovation in 2017. Perched 1,200 feet above the Pacific on more than 200 acres of meadows and wooded hillsides, this resort is a favorite among celebrities and regular folks looking for a luxurious locale to commune with nature.

The experience fee includes daily guided nature walks and a meditation class. The two outdoor pools (one with an infinity-edge hot tub, and one clothing-optional) are ideal for basking in the sun in the warmer months. Get centered with daily yoga 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 hotel now also has glamping tents, a luxury camping (glamping) experience where guests can experience all of the elements of Big Sur while still enjoying all the amenities and services of the property.

The Sur House, the rustic yet elegant on-site restaurant, offers breathtaking views of  the infinite ocean and rugged coast beckon as well as the mountains, sprawling redwoods and wildlife.
