One of my best friends and I went to Big Sur for 2 nights and we lucky enough to stay with Ventana. This luxurious rugged slice of heaven was the highlight of our coastal adventure. There is a balance of 5 star service with a casual relaxed feel. The resort is nestled in the mountain side with views that are story book worthy. The recent renovations are outstanding and this is one for the bucket list. Outstanding in all aspects, thank you for a wonderful visit!

this place is worth every penny. I was about to hold back until I saw reviews and pictures of this place and I don’t regret it at all. My boyfriend loved it, so that means we will for sure be back. It was honestly a dream come true.

It was beautiful, meticulous, with incredible service. There is no doubt we would return. The glamping experience was a lot of fun, with all our needs thought of and prepared for. The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful.

Beautiful Resort, friendly staff, excellent food! Room was large and comfortable. Great opportunities for recreation on and off of the hotel grounds. Yoga daily, hikes daily, and a lovely drive to the hotel.

Stayed here with my fiance for 3 nights and the resort is spectacular. The staff and people that run the resort go to the nth degree to make you feel welcome and at home. Our stay here was nothing less than warm. The room was great with one of the best views you could want of the pacific. The hammock outside was a nice touch and used during the day and night for gazing at the stars. This resort was one of the few times where the hype is real. Hands down would stay here again and recommend to fellow travelers.
