Slip Away

From The World

A place to be

There are certain places in the world that leave us changed. That inspire us. That help us connect to both nature and ourselves. Perched on the edge of the continent in Big Sur, overlooking the dramatic California coastline, Ventana is just such a place.

Here, the sky, the sea, the mountains and the forests all come together to create a magnificent setting that makes you see the world—and yourself—a little differently. It’s a place that invites you to breathe, but at the same time, has the power to leave you breathless. It’s a place to discover. A place to create your own experience. A place to be.

Plan your Personal Discovery

Go

Stay

In an outdoor setting as breathtaking as Big Sur, it's hard to find many reasons to want to go inside. So we've worked hard to make sure our guestrooms are extra inviting.

Go

Dine

The rustic dining room has a lodge-like atmosphere, and the expansive patio overlooks 50 miles of coastline, allowing you to pair your meal with the equally delicious views of the Pacific Ocean.

Go

Spa

The Spa at Ventana is your retreat within a retreat, providing a serene place to connect with yourself on a level that day-to-day life seldom allows.

Go

Weddings

Set high above the Pacific Ocean on the Big Sur coastline, Ventana blends the ocean, the mountains and the forest into one profoundly beautiful backdrop for your special occasion.

HIGHWAY 1 ROAD CLOSURES ARE IN EFFECT

VENTANA IS CURRENTLY CLOSED

Due to storm damage both south and north of Ventana on Highway 1, the Resort is temporarily closed. Highway 1, which provides the only road access to the Resort, has been closed by Caltrans officials due to structural damage to the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge to our north and mud slides to our south. While the experts continue to assess the damage and work needed to repair the bridge and clear the mudslides, we are taking direction from Caltrans in a combined effort with the Big Sur community to ensure the safety of everyone in the area. We will update you as we receive the most current information on the repair schedule and the road's estimated reopening. We are grateful for all of the tremendous efforts by Caltrans, which is working tirelessly to resolve the closure and keep the Big Sur community safe.

For those of you traveling to the Monterey Peninsula in the near future, we strive to take care of you and accommodate your plans as best as possible under the circumstances. We have a sister resort 20 miles north of Big Sur, Carmel Valley Ranch, where we have relocated the Ventana team. They are there to assist and discuss options for your travel.

The entire team at Ventana is sorry for any disappointment this has caused regarding your travel plans. If we can be of any assistance or you would like to speak with the team directly, please call us at 800.628.6500.
