Luxury Holidays At Post Ranch Inn

For lovers of nature and the outdoors, as well as peace and quiet, the wonderful, adults-only Post Ranch Inn really delivers. Boasting an impressive clifftop location, you will literally have to tear yourself away from the distracting ocean scenery to venture inside your guest room. Rooms are all unique – designed to circular layouts and butterfly shapes – and boast wood-burning fires and spacious decks. There is even a grown-up treehouse that makes for nostalgic memories. With only forty guest rooms scattered across one-hundred acres of Big Sur coastline, it is virtually impossible to bump into another guest. Only nature awaits your acquaintance, and even that can wait until a glass of California’s finest wine has been sipped by the infinity-edge pool.

Property Highlights:expand_more

Experience a haven of serenity, peace and exclusivity at the adult-only Post Ranch Inn. Whether you want to simply unwind, indulge in an uninterrupted romantic getaway, or explore the mesmerising surrounding landscape, tranquillity and luxury is guaranteed.


Exclusively for adults and utterly secluded, Post Ranch Inn exudes intimacy and romance, whilst the lack of televisions and alarm clocks ensure that your precious time together is truly uninterrupted. Start your day with yoga overlooking the shimmering Pacific Ocean, or get closer to nature on a mesmerising, hand-in-hand nature walk, before a relaxing afternoon sipping the finest Californian wine at the edge of the sleek infinity pool. After marvelling at the spectacular sunset, join the inn's astronomer as you gaze together at the stars in the inimitably clear night sky. Say "I do" with your dream wedding at Post Ranch Inn, or start married life in luxury with one of their indulgent honeymoon packages.

Hotel Experiences

There are three miles of marked nature trails, guided hikes, yoga, star-gazing, meditation, two infinity-edge pools and seasonal cooking classes available for guests to enjoy.

Spa Breaks

A series of spa treatment rooms are situated amongst Redwood trees and the impressive Ventana granite peaks. Guests can enjoy the healing properties of nature in a comfortable and calming setting. All spa packages, designed to relax and revitalise, can be experienced in either the luxurious treatment rooms or the privacy of your own guest room.

Wildlife Encounters

A nature lover's heaven, Big Sur houses some of the largest, rarest, fastest and most elusive life forms on the planet, both on land and at sea. Speed across the Pacific Ocean's waves on an unforgettable whale watching excursion, spotting enchanting Blue, Humpback and Killer Whales, alongside dancing dolphins, playful Sea Otters and charming Elephant Seals. Back on land, embrace one of the ranch's fascinating guided nature walks through the mountains, perhaps spying swooping Peregrine Falcons, striking California Condors - the world's largest and rarest bird - or even majestic and beautiful Mountain Lions.
