Post Ranch Inn is designed to take your appreciation of the countryside surrounding Big Sur, and the Pacific Ocean, to a new level. From on top of a cliff!

Sitting in the infinity pool, you’ll feel as if you’re on the very edge of the world. There is nothing between you, the blue of the pool, the infinite sky and the horizon-wide Pacific Ocean. It’s a tremendous sensation, but it’s just one of many great feelings you’ll have if you make a stay at the Post Ranch Inn part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the USA.

Dining, for example, is something of an occasion. The chef will take you on a tour of the produce garden, before cooking world class dishes accompanied by award-winning wines. You are, after all, in California. It’s also worth noting that the Post Ranch Inn is completely adults only. So your enjoyment will not be interrupted by people under 18.
