Post Ranch Inn


Perched on cliffs overlooking the rugged coastline of Big Sur, Post Ranch Inn is the ultimate hideaway. This exclusive, adults-only resort is designed to blend in with its natural surroundings while offering a peaceful retreat and plenty of opportunities for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Constructed from recycled redwood and sheet metal, the 39 sophisticated guestrooms and private houses are stylish and elegant with breathtaking views over the ocean or Santa Lucia Mountains. Rooms have indoor spa baths, private decks, complimentary minibars, and binoculars to admire the view, while some also feature outdoor hot tubs.

Sierra Mar is an exquisite restaurant perched atop the ridge. The food is sublime, featuring local, seasonal produce complemented by an award-winning wine list.

Spend your days watching birds and whales from your balcony, lazing around the pool, enjoying yoga and meditation classes, relaxing in the spa, or wandering along nature trails.
