Ventana Inn & Spa

Perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific, Ventana Inn and Spa in Big Sur blends rustic elegance with plenty of space to relax and take in the stunning views and 243 acres of tranquil surroundings. From property-wide recycling programs to low-H2O faucets to the use of native landscaping elements, Ventana takes sustainability seriously and goes the extra mile to stand as an eco-friendly California hotel. 




The geographic diversity of California’s Central Coast region makes it an ideal place to explore on foot. From secluded beaches to majestic mountains to verdant forests, the landscape surrounding Big Sur offers a wide variety of beautiful vistas and one-of-a-kind environments to experience. With an array of easy, moderate and challenging Big Sur hiking trails to traverse, there’s never a dull moment at Ventana.





Discover serenity of spirit, peace of mind and revitalization of body at the Spa at Ventana. A full-service Big Sur spa offering massages, facials, body treatments and specialized therapy, the Spa at Ventana provides a placid place to unplug, escape and unwind.




Trained practitioners are dedicated to providing nurturing, relaxing experiences through a variety of massages and treatments. Services are available in the privacy of your room or deck, or at the luxurious spa – either alone or in the company of your partner. Lose yourself in lavender and embrace the essence of the Central Coast at the Spa at Ventana.

Ventana features two breath taking swimming pools. The resort’s famed clothing-optional pool, located on the property’s west end, includes a clothing-optional sun deck. Both of the pools are outdoors and kept at a comfortable 80 degrees year-round. Each pool features a Japanese hot bath – open daily and nightly – and the resort offers one dry sauna.




The Ventana fitness room, tucked away in a grove of trees, is open to resort guests from 7am to 10:30pm daily. The fitness center includes a variety of cardio and exercise equipment, including a Stairmaster, treadmill and free weights. The resort also offers yoga and Pilates classes in a spectacular setting.






Recline on a king-size four-poster bed, stay cozy in front of the wood-burning fireplace, and soak up wondrous ocean or canyon views from the large outdoor deck.




At the Restaurant at Ventana, fresh, locally sourced ingredients and unique, inventive recipes combine to create a daring and diverse dining experience.  Executive Chef Paul Corsentino and his team have created ever-evolving, always-inspired menus that showcase the bounty of California’s Central Coast.




Big Sur might be one of the only places in America in which you can view a grand, 115-room mansion on the same day you visit a “retreat center” that hosted the likes of Hunter S. Thompson and Aldous Huxley. Big Sur activities and attractions run the gamut from historic lighthouses to inspiring gardens and Spanish missions.
