Hotel Report

Why Stay At Ventana Inn

Surrounded by 243 acres fronting the rugged coast, this cozy adults-only escape consists of 55 beautiful rooms and three comfortable cedar villas.

The Scoop

At Ventana Inn, guests fall into an easy rhythm of lounging in ocean-view hammocks, companionable afternoon wine and cheese receptions or taking an occasional plunge into two outdoor pools (note: one is clothing optional). Pay the Japanese bathhouse a visit and schedule some me-time with a sea-inspired treatment at the spa. Get the lay of the land by joining the daily one-hour guided walk around the property where you can spot red-tailed hawks and rare California condors. The cliffside property offers breathtaking Pacific Ocean views through picture windows from most of its light-filled spacious guest rooms. The polished quarters include amenities like private decks, window seats as well as bathrooms with tubs and high-end complimentary toiletries.

Insider Tips

Indulge in organic California coastal cuisine at the on-site restaurant. However, if you are in the mood for authentic Mexican fare like Carne Asada sandwiches and tamales, head to Big Sur Deli a half-mile north of the hotel.

Stay fit while on vacation and partake in the daily Yoga, Pilates or Tai Chi classes at the hotel.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at San Jose International Airport (SJC) which is approximately 108 miles from the inn. Anticipate about 2 hours of travel time depending on traffic.
