Perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and forested canyons, Ventana Inn & Spa is a luxury resort located amidst the California coast’s most mythic backdrop - Big Sur. Even here, where a magical combination of natural beauty and remoteness has long inspired writers, artists and travelers alike, Ventana occupies a special place - one of privacy, romance, and judging from many guests’ reactions, awe.
Two Outdoors Pools, Signautre Restaurant and Spa.
The two outdoor, heated swimming pools – one is clothing-optional – are adjoined by bathhouses featuring Japanese hot baths, sun decks and a sauna. For added relaxation, The Spa at Ventana embraces spiritual gifts in its approach to rejuvenation. The resort’s signature restaurant, The Restaurant at Ventana, has long been considered one of the area’s best, and serves California cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, always emphasizing carefully chosen ingredients from local farmers.
All accommodations feature a deck or patio with forest, canyon, mountain or distant ocean views. Some decks have personal outdoor spas. Most rooms have a wood-burning fireplace, separate living area, a spacious bath with open enclosure slate/tub/shower, dressing area and custom bath amenities. Interior appointments include luxurious king-size bed. Color tones keep in harmony with the coastal setting: sage, rust, deep browns, cream and soft gold tones.
