Post Ranch Inn

"One of the most romantic places on earth." –Travel+Leisure

Renowned as the ultimate destination for a luxurious escape, Post Ranch is ideal for romance, relaxation or rejuvenation. Nestled high on the cliffs, the inn perches 1,200 feet above the Pacific. With organic architecture embracing the coast's dramatic beauty, the 41 rooms, suites and houses meld rustic elegance, comfort and privacy. Each features a wood-burning fireplace, indoor soaking tub, minibar with complimentary snacks and beverages, and private deck – many with hot tub. Distinctive rooms, green and sustainable, feature stunning mountain or ocean views.

Sierra Mar combines world-class cuisine with a spectacular cliff-top setting. Chef John Cox's innovative cuisine includes a prix fixe dinner that changes daily. Menus feature organic, seasonal ingredients, many from the inn's garden. The exceptional wine cellar is one of California's largest.

Guests can rejuvenate with treatments at the award-winning spa, relax in the swimming pool and basking pools, enjoy complimentary yoga, hike the trails on 100 acres, stargaze with amateur astronomers, and savor the complimentary gourmet breakfast. Picturesque Carmel and Monterey are a short drive.

Post Ranch is the ultimate hotel for romance or special occasions. A haven for lovers and others, it's a sanctuary for the soul.

Adults only, please.
