Top 10 U.S. Luxury Spa
Big Sur, Calif. (Vocus) January 22, 2009
Big Sur has long served as a kindred spirit for those who regularly visit the area where nature and unrivaled beauty are married in one of the world's most breathtaking settings. It's fitting then that Big Sur's iconic resort, Ventana Inn & Spa, is introducing a "Kindred Spirit" romance package that will lure couples who not only share a spiritual link with each other but quite likely with the small California Central Coast community and the rustic resort that is perched 1,200 feet above the Pacific Ocean.
Here is a closer look at the two-night package, available now through Dec. 31, which is bound to leave couples feeling refreshed, renewed and reconnected:
- Deluxe accommodations for two nights
- Couples' spa welcome basket
- Dinner for two ($150 dining credit)
- An 80-minute "Couples Experience" at Allegria Spa
- Special turndown amenity each evening
- Complimentary Big Sur breakfast and afternoon wine-and-cheese reception
Package rates, which vary by room type and arrival date, begin at $1,250 per night and do not include tax, gratuity or $25/night resort fee. The package must be booked at least two days prior to arrival, and blackout dates may apply.
Lodging options feature 60 spacious rooms and suites in 12 separate one and two-story buildings, each with private balcony or patio and either ocean or valley and mountain views. Complete information on room categories and pricing is available by calling the resort's reservations department.
Named a "Top 10 U.S. Luxury Spa" by SpaFinder magazine, Ventana's Allegria Spa offers massage, facials, wraps, scrubs and wet treatments. The "Couples Experience" spa treatment begins with an aromatherapy bath and then a side-by-side signature massage of each person's choice.
Additional amenities contributing to the resort's romantic appeal include two swimming pools, one clothing-optional, and the Inn's famous Japanese baths, which are open daily and nightly to moonlight and a spectacle of stars.
Ventana Inn & Spa, named one of the "500 World's Best Hotels" by Travel + Leisure magazine, is fresh from an $18 million renovation, which has resulted in a dramatic facelift of its 60 suites and guest rooms, a restoration of the upper Japanese Baths and an enhancement of the gardens.
