Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, California (Prices & Photos)
Post Ranch Inn sits on a towering mountain ridge overlooking the Pacific as one of the dreamiest destinations on Earth, and one of the romantic places to stay in the world. Enjoy couples massages, a candlelit restaurant, incredible stargazing after dark and The Jade Pool – a definite highlight that overlooks the crashing waves below – as well as the occasional whale that passes by, leaping out of the water to make you feel as if you’re in a movie. Bungalows, made of slate, marble and wood, are split between separate buildings, designed to blend seamlessly into the property’s lush natural landscape. From the platform bed to the fireplace, each exudes natural comfort and supreme luxury – for views of the ocean, choose the Cliff House, and for unforgettable mountain views, try the Tree House, where the steps float mid-air.
