The delightful Ventana Big Sur is located on a hillside, high above the Pacific Ocean and overlooking the dramatic Big Sur coastline. It’s ideal for active couples seeking a tranquil and unique escape amidst nature in an unspoilt setting. There are local hiking trails that meander across acres of peaceful meadows, mountain-biking trails and horse-riding to enjoy, along with kayaking and windsurfing, while each of the sixty guest rooms, suites, villas and cottages features a private patio with valley, mountain or distant ocean views, as well as a flat-screen television with DVD player, iPod docking station, high-speed internat access and a useful pair of binoculars. Take a dip in one of two swimming pools (one of which is clothing optional), each with a Japanese hot bath area - which is even open in the evening for a moonlit soak - or unwind in the sauna or on the relaxation deck. There is a fully equipped fitness room and The Spa at Ventana, which focuses on harmonising the body, mind and soul with a range of pampering massages, facials and body wraps. Savour fine Californian cuisine and a glass of wine at the award-winning Restaurant at Ventana or enjoy room service from Ventana Bistro.
