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.

Service is odd, its not bad, it just isn't. Ask the concierge about driving to Monterrey or Pebble, they know nothing. Ask the water "How is the Duck cooked" answer "very good" Need towels at the pool, you might have to wait till they get around to it. I would definitely go back as it is so beautiful, but hopefully, the service will return to the Ventana of old.

Ventenna in Big Sur was the most relaxing and quite retreat. The pools are wonderful to swim and look at the ocean. We are coming back in June for our anniversary and my birthday. We are brining my daughter inlaw and my son to celebrate her birthday too. Can't wait.

We stayed here at the end of our holiday in California. Staff all extremely polite and want to help. We had an upstairs suite and it was superb. Allowed us to chill out ready for the flight home after our touring of parts of California. Whilst expensive the whole experience was superb. You could make as much or as little use of the many facilities. The bath tub is a joy.
