Ellen DeGeneres and Leonardo DiCaprio stay here, but you don't have to be famous to enjoy this spectacular oasis..
"A playground for the soul," promises this luxury resort's brochure, and for once there's truth in advertising. Rustic architecture, flower gardens, basking pools, yoga classes, stargazing, courteous staffers, delicious food and gorgeous guest rooms--not to mention the ridiculously stunning ocean views--all coalesce here to form one of California's most beautiful and relaxing getaways.
Guest rooms feature king-sized beds, private decks, slate spa tubs, fireplaces and stereos--but no TVs. For an extra-special stay, reserve the Ocean House, which seems to hover right over the sea, or the Coast House, which sports a unique circular design that mirrors the redwood trees nearby.
Beautiful escape. Rooms are priced according to location and privacy. We stayed in the butterly room (least expensive) -rustic and luxurious. The room rate includes a stocked mini bar with juices and snacks. The property is perched on a cliff amidst a forest overlooking the pacific ocean with breathtaking views! There are benches placed in secluded spots with ocean views. The restaurant has good food and beautiful views. Additionally, nice touches around hiking trails included buckets of bottled water. There are many trails to walk along and there is a wading and lap pool, and fitness center. You can star gaze at night with an astronomer or walk along with Bill Post (one of the owners) for a tour of local plantlife and history during the day. There are many nearby parks. As with all other reviewers: Although it was expensive, I was sad to leave and will definately return.
Romantic-A Great Escape!!!!. Beautiful views, verry romantic, a breath of clean fresh ocean air....Very earthy, peaceful... Great aromotherapy and dual massages... Nice rooms, modern bathrooms, romatic fireplus plus views, and excellent fine dining! What more can you ask for?! Great escape; great getaway! LOved the whole experience!
AMAZING!. this place is amazing!!! we stayed in one of the tree houses which had awesome views. the staff is incredibly attentive. every detail is thought of. once we arrived we didn't want to leave. the grounds are so beautiful. one thing every guest must do is the nature walk with billy post. his family has owned the land for three generations. billy walks you around the property giving you history of big sur and he knows every single plant and tree you pass. I would go every few months if I could afford it.
