Room at Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, CA

Post Ranch Inn Hotel Review

: This posh-yet-understated resort along the Big Sur coast maintains the integrity of the natural landscape without sacrificing style and good taste. Thirty-nine rooms sit on almost 100 acres, practically guaranteeing seclusion. Each of the rooms is truly unique, keeping in harmony with its surroundings. Some rooms look onto the Pacific from beds and baths, and are crowned with rooftops that double as wildflower beds. Other rooms are shaped like triangles, and sit on stilts nine feet off the ground. All accommodations boast complimentary mini-bars and radiant-heat floors; most have soaking tubs or whirlpools, as well. Daily life at the inn is not about thrills, but rather about communing quietly with nature. Complimentary activities for guests include yoga (scheduled at least once a day), Tai Chi and Qigong. Admired as much for its architecture as its cuisine, Sierra Mar restaurant offers a popular four-course prix fixe menu and selection of 4,000 wines against a backdrop of steel, glass and redwood. All guests receive complimentary breakfast daily.
