Luxury ranch getaway located along the central Californian coast near to Big Sur National Park
Located off of the Pacific Coast Highway, midway between San Jose and San Luis Obispo, the Post Ranch Inn Big Sur offers a serene environment for guests to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The 5-star establishment is ideal for those taking a long relaxing vacation, a weekend away, or even one nights luxury as you pass along the Pacific coast.
The Inn consists of 39 guestrooms and two private houses. Each features unique architectural structures (including a property shaped like the outstretched wings of a butterfly, and several that are built in the trees) as well as lavish amenities intended to bring a sense of peace and tranquility to any stay.
Noticeably, each room is void of the likes of a television or alarm clock. The Post Ranch Inn is about relaxing after all. Instead rooms feature wood-burning fireplaces, indoor spa tubs, and private decks, each of which offers fantastic and picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean or the mountains beyond.
In-room amenities include a digital music system, mini-bar (with beverages and snacks), hairdryer, iron and ironing board, king-size bed with organic mattress, luxury linens, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Private bathrooms feature terry-cloth robes and slippers, as well as organic toiletries. Rooms located on the South Ridge also feature outdoor hot tubs.
Guests can enjoy a complimentary gourmet breakfast buffet in the hotels restaurant, Sierra Mar, which aslo serves lunch and dinner menus.
In keeping with the tranquil aspect, the Post Ranch Inn Big Sur offers a full-service spa. Here guests can indulge in a long list of therapies and treatments designed to ease body and mind. Full-body massages, reflexology, and herbal body wraps are just some of the items on the list.
The central Californian hotel also offers a number of activities designed to relax and restore. Guests can enjoy private or led meditation and Tai Chi sessions, as well as meditate in the cliff-top Meditation Pool.
An additional basking pool is also available, overlooking the cliffs along the Pacific coast. Those looking to exercise will also find a lap pool as well as a fitness room.
Guests staying at the Post Ranch Inn are also invited to partake in guided nature walks, either as a group or privately, and stargazing. With little in the way of urban growth to be found in and around the hotels location, the nighttime skies are rich with shining stars.
Whilst for many lounging on a sundeck, relaxing in a warm pool, or being treated to rejuvenating treatments is more than enough to keep them busy, the surrounding region does also offer a number of activities and attractions for visitors to enjoy.
Amongst the nearby establishments worth visiting are the Esalen Institute, the Henry Miller Library, the Hawthorne Gallery, and Ventana Wildlife Society.
Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park is also just a short distance from the Post Ranch Inn Big Sur, which allows guests the chance to delve into the wilderness and landscapes of the region.
