Big Sur's Calling...
Big Sur beckons artists, creators, musicians and spiritual leaders. Or just you. Come see the world, or yourself, just a little bit differently. [sponsored]
Experience the dramatic beauty of Big Sur year-round. No matter the season, whatever you seek—inventive cuisine, healing spa treatment outdoor exploration, even creative expression—you’ll find it in the rustic elegance of Ventana Big Sur. Tucked-in between the blue Pacific and emerald redwood forest, find stunning views in all directions. In the main resort, romantic suites with wood-burning fireplaces abound, and you may never want to leave.
After a multi-million dollar renovation, Ventana Big Sur, an Alila resort, is the jewel of coastal California. Authors, thinkers and those seeking reflection, inspiration or new spark find it here (and return). Most, however, find the call of the outdoors and myriad Alila experiences on offer exceed expectations, such as guided hikes, Circle of life meditation and equally irresistible, falconry. And one’s spirit has never felt so nourished than by the culinary artistry of Chef Paul Corsentino at The Sur House. His signature coastal cuisine is crafted with homage to organic produce from the gardens and dedication to uplifting the senses – and is complimented by a 10,000 bottle cellar of small production Central Coast wines, carefully hand-chosen.
Big Sur has long been known as a sacred, curative site and Spa Alila summons the profound energy of this natural setting. Dedicated, top professionals, with the time and space to focus on the things that really matter, offer treatments that rejuvenate and release the body and mind from the confines of the working world.
For those seeking a luxury camping adventure, Glamping in our 20-acre Redwood Canyon is a more refined way to connect to the great outdoors. Experience the full splendor of Big Sur, while still relishing all the amenities and services of the resort. Sleep deeply on a custom-designed glamping mattress and premium linens in the safari-style canvas tent. Light up the fire pit, make s’mores and tell stories—or just let the landscape do all the talking and marvel at the views. After a day of exploration, nourish your body at the SurStream, our custom-designed mini-airstream – serving up light bites and mixologist-perfected cocktails, local wines and beer.
