Escape to quiet luxury with panoramic views of the Pacific coastline and Santa Lucia Mountains at Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, Calif.
This nineteenth-century homestead is a renowned luxury coastal resort set among towering redwood trees, radiant sun and clear-blue skies that match the ocean’s horizon.
The luxurious accommodations are separated among different buildings that complement the natural surrounding. Take the two Cliff Houses that feature curved exterior walls fashioned from recycled Corten steel with a custom-designed outdoor steel spa tub that boasts a breathtaking view of the ocean below. Tree Houses balance on stilts 9 feet off the ground, while the new Pacific Suites feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls for unparalleled views.
As a home away from home, guests don’t have to leave the premises to relax and enjoy such activities as morning yoga, guided hikes, stargazing, whale watching and more.
Dine along the cliffs overlooking the majestic Pacific at the resort’s acclaimed Sierra Mar restaurant that’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The organic, artisan menu by Executive Chef John Cox changes daily with most ingredients harvested from the resort’s organic garden.
Beyond standard spa treatments like massages and facial and body treatments, the award-winning Big Sur Spa at Post Ranch Inn also offers unique treatments, like Native American shamanic sessions and rituals, and body and soul therapies.
