The World's Best Places to Stay - Gold List
Conde Nast Traveler - January 2009
"This scenic retreat, which opened in 1975 on 243 acres, has rooms with redwood floors, glass tiles, bronze and bamboo accented by a palette of sage, rust, gold and brown. Follow a wooded path to Cielo, which stocks 600 wines and has an outdoor cocktail lounge with a fireplace and a terrace with ocean vistas. Treatments at The Spa at Ventana are wonderful and unique and include a pine-forest body polish."
