Ventana Inn & Spa in Big Sur, California

Imagine the cool beauty of a morning on the sea, the crisp salt-tinged air invigorating your senses as the sun rises over the lush hills of Central California, and you will picture the fabulous Ventana Inn & Spa. Perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific, on 213 verdant acres in Big Sur, the rustic elegance of this stunning resort allows it to blend harmoniously with its surroundings, creating a sense of true tranquility and relaxation. Bright and charming rooms are a wonderful blend of sleek modern luxury and the charm of a country cabin, with a breezy open design that allows a seamless transition from indoors to out. Gorgeous tiled or hardwood floors lead past plush beds and picture windows, out to your own private deck with sweeping views of the coast. Complete with an elegant bathroom and deep soaking tub, as well as wonderful and friendly service, your stay at Ventana Inn & Spa will leave you refreshed, rejuvenated, and at complete peace.

On your first day, wake to the gentle sounds of the coast, and take part in a yoga or pilates class before heading out for a fabulous day. Enjoy a guided hike through the redwood forest and gaze upon shimmering waterfalls and breathtaking ocean views, then return to the resort for a relaxing afternoon wine and cheese reception. Venture out to Pfeffer Big Sur State park or Andrew Molera State Park for a day of hiking, or mountain bike along the Big Sur River and miles of gorgeous trails. Later, take a casual stroll through the many wonderful art galleries in Big Sur, and shop for international and local works at the Hawthorne Gallery, Big Sur Arts Center, or the Cast Gallery Big Sur. That afternoon, after a wonderful day in the mountains, stretch out next to one of the two pools, one of which is clothing-optional, and soak in the delicious sunlight before evening falls. Before dinner, pamper yourself with a trip to the Spa at Ventana where you will melt under the practiced hands of a masseuse. With the stars shining brilliantly over the coast sit down to a fabulous meal, featuring gourmet international cuisine with hints of both mountain fare and the Pacific-rim, and relax away the night in the serene embrace of Ventana Inn & Spa.

Been here twice now for lunch. Once last year and again this. Both times the food has been good however the service is so so so slow.... At one point I thought that maybe they had closed for food. I sat ignored at the table for 15 minutes, the waitress walked past me 3 times. Another guest said it’s bar service, ok my mistake not a problem. So I walked to the bar, I was ignored there also. It took 10 minutes to serve me. It was a Tuesday afternoon there was about 8 people at the bar so not busy. Both times I have found the service to be a little one the side of rude. I wont be back a 3rd time.

I just provided feedback on another survey as to how disappointing this stay was -- service, value for dollar, attention to detail, everything one would expect for a $1700/night room was just missing.

The location is great, and rooms are very nice. However, they had a huge event with people NOT staying overnight. Parking was messy - no space for people staying in the resort, and there was constant noise, music, entertainment, announcements over loudspeaker for the whole afternoon. Plus people not staying in the resort strolling around and staring at your balconies. Not really what you expect in place where tranquility is part of the value proposition. WIFI did not work properly, lack of bandwidth I guess with 100+ extra people on site and no controlled log-in. I approached front desk and was told this some sort of charity event and I think it is great to do those types of events but not at the expense of people paying 1000 $ per night.

Ventana was once a crown jewel in the heart of Big Sur. It was recently purchased and overhauled. I'm sad to say it has shed its Big Sur funk and gained Bay Area glam. Not exactly what I am looking for when I escape the Bay Area. Sad......

The grounds at Ventana are excellent and there are many great restaurants close to the resort. The upgrades that were done recently are well done and the rooms were nice and roomy. Food was excellent at the restaurant
