U.S. News Review

Impeccable service and beautiful grounds are what people expect at Ventana, and, according to recent travelers, guests get those luxuries with a whole lot more. Guests have opportunities to work up a sweat while hiking or taking an outdoor yoga class before cooling off at the spa or in one of two on-site pools. Recent diners also rave about the delicious cuisine served at the Restaurant at Ventana, which features a menu composed of locally sourced ingredients prepared in creative ways and served alongside the restaurant's award-winning wine list. And, although the accommodations at this Joie de Vivre property vary in size from approximately 414 to nearly 1,200 square feet, all of the rooms feature comfortable beds, flat-screen TVs, custom bath products and breathtaking views of Big Sur's scenery. Ventana Inn & Spa is located about 30 minutes south of Monterey along Highway 1.
