Overview

Nestled on the cliffs of Big Sur, California, the Post Ranch Inn provides the ultimate romantic getaway for those seeking a luxurious escape for a honeymoon, anniversary, or a relaxing vacation. The luxury resort's organic architecture embraces the dramatic beauty of Big Sur's coastline. From here you can explore all that nature has to offer, or take a short drive to the picturesque towns of Monterey and Carmel.

Rooms offer a rustic elegance with luxury and comfort. Relax by the pools; awaken your senses with a massage, spa treatment, or daily yoga classes. Award winning Sierra Mar restaurant offers an awe-inspiring setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean, perfect for a romantic dinner for two.

The 40 guest rooms at Post Ranch Inn offer a luxurious, romantic experience. Similar in size and appointments, each room has a unique design with either an ocean or mountain view. Each room has a king-size bed, wood-burning fireplace, indoor spa tub, private deck, stereo, digital music system with forty-five channels, coffee & tea set-up Guests enjoy the complimentary wet bar and mini-bar with snacks, juices, and a half bottle of red and white wine Amenities include terry cloth robes, slippers, hairdryer, iron, ironing board and walking sticks. There are no televisions or alarm clocks in the guestrooms. All rooms are non-smoking.

While relaxing at Post Ranch Inn, we offer the most luxurious spa treatments to help ease away tension, relax muscles, and pamper you in every way possible. Indulge yourself with a massage on your private deck or in your room -- by yourself or with your partner. Relax with a facial using the finest aromatherapy and natural botanicals. Enjoy an early-morning yoga class with a private instructor in our Yurt perched beneath the Ventana Mountains. Or, warm up while in the sun at our basking pool. Our spa treatments are designed to relax and revitalize using the healing properties of nature. Begin your journey with a soothing spa treatment, an invigorating private guided hike, or an energizing yoga class. Breathe deeply, walk softly, let go - harmonize your body and soul. Begin the day with a deep breath and a good stretch during morning yoga. Our guides on the nature walks lead guests through the redwood and oak forest. Once a week a local artist introduces the many sculptures dotting the landscape, and an enthusiastic gardener reveals culinary, medicinal and beauty secrets of the plants in the herb garden growing on the roof of the restaurant. In the evening, weather permitting, join our astronomer in gazing into infinity through an electronic telescope. Far from any city, Big Sur's night sky is a pristine marvel of starry clarity.

Our activities program is less about being busy, and more about sharing the treasures of Post Ranch and Big Sur.
