Full accommodation information

With a rugged coastal location and endless views out to the Pacific Ocean or mountains, this unique, luxurious California hotel will charm and beguile you. 

The highly acclaimed Post Ranch Inn combines elegance with barefoot luxury to create a calming and very special place.

The Post Ranch Inn’s setting is the Big Sur, which emerges into view as you drive along the California coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

In great contrast to these cosmopolitan cities, this stretch of unspoiled coastline possesses a mountainous majesty that thrills nature lovers, who come to roam the rugged landscape and gaze at the starry skies

Perched on a clifftop, the adults-only Post Ranch Inn offers 39 rooms, all individual in design, embracing dramatic ocean, forest or mountain views. Breath-taking coastal views can be enjoyed from the Sierra Mar restaurant and outdoor terrace or while basking in the two cliff-top spas.

The heated outdoor pool is in a serene setting on a sunny knoll, perfect for refreshing swims and sunbathing.

The award-winning spa sits among a forest of pines with treatment rooms featuring partly glazed walls offering tranquil and relaxing views through the forest while enjoying a choice of signature body therapies.

The resort offers a range of complimentary activities on set days during the week including morning yoga, guided nature walks and star-gazing. Scheduled shuttles are available to escort you around attractions in the Big Sur region.
