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 the winter 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 and demolition of the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge to our north and road repairs to our south. Highway 1 to our south has been re-opened but access is restricted to Big Sur residents and emergency vehicles only.

Highway 1 access from the south is estimated to open by late June allowing for safe passage and ease of travel to Big Sur. The Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge to our north is estimated to be rebuilt by mid to late September, 2017.

While we aim to re-open as early as possible, Ventana is currently only accepting reservations starting October 1st, 2017. Adding to the excitement of the full restoration of Highway 1, Ventana will be ushering in a vibrant new stage of the resort with a multi-million dollar imagining coming to fruition.

The Campground at Ventana opens October 1st followed by the launch of our newest signature experience, glamping in the redwood forest. These upscale fully furnished tents with thoughtful amenities offer the best of a camping adventure with a luxury sensibility. We will also be offering the traditional redwood forest camp sites. The Campground at Ventana will be the only Big Sur campground accessible from Highway 1 from the south and will have access to most of the Big Sur iconic attractions and restaurants: Nepenthe and the Phoenix Shop, Sierra Mar Restaurant, Esalen Institute, The Coast Gallery, Big Sur Bakery, Big Sur Tap House, Pfeiffer Beach, McWay Falls and many favorite hiking trails.

We continue to take 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. 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.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ventana Big Sur to experience the re-imagination of the resort and share all the new surprises combined with the magnificent beauty of Big Sur and the warmth of our entire team.

If we can be of any assistance or you would like to speak with the team directly, please call us at 800.628.6500.
