"The moment you enter Ventana, you know it's a special place. The surrounding area of Big Sur is spectacular and Ventana is the place to stay. The resort is perched on a hillside overlooking the ocean and the views are amazing." KH

In a Word: Outstanding
"We stayed at Ventana Inn and Spa on our drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The drive to Ventana was really enjoyable and the views were amazing." BQ

Escape, Relax, and Breathe
"The Ventana Inn delivered on simply everything. Tucked in a mountain miles away from everything with working fireplaces in the rooms, fire pits outside, wine and cheese tastings daily at 4pm and hiking trails on the property, the Ventana Inn is one place that you really can relax and get away from everything."
