Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort

Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort

For savvy Californians, Big Sur and Ventana have long been synonymous. Perched 1,200 feet above one of the most dramatic stretches of the state’s Central Coast, the adults-only, rustically romantic resort has just completed a multimillion-dollar re-imagination. Ventana’s 59 guestrooms and suites are tucked amidst 160 acres of redwood forests and meadows; each features a private balcony or patio (book a Big Sur Spa Suite to enjoy a private hot tub). Executive Chef Paul Corsentino works with local farmers utilizing sustainable ingredients to create inventive coastal cuisine. Come relish the essence of this iconic region.

Hotel Tip

Ventana is the ultimate place to say “I do,” with intimate and elegant spaces for ceremonies and receptions of up to 200 guests.

Have stayed here 2 times now. The second time was just as great as the first. The accommodation is spectacular and the staff extremely warm and inviting. They quickly helped us with every little detail. Can't recommend it enough.

A very tranquil, beautiful resort. Just across the highway from the ocean but just as enjoyable. Staff are genuine and pleasant.
