POOLS AND BATHHOUSES

SOAK IN THE ATMOSPHERE

Ventana Big Sur has sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, but our connection to the water runs even deeper — with two outdoor pools that offer luxury and a distinctly Big Sur experience.

Luxuriate at our Meadow Pool, perhaps in the large infinity-edge hot tub, and you’ll be rewarded with expansive ocean and redwood forest views — as well as surprise delights from our pool attendant, such as frozen fruit, aromatherapy cooling towels and more.

Or move to the secluded — and clothing-optional — Mountain Pool, a throwback to 1970s-era Big Sur and its progressive personality. Perched high in the resort and surrounded by trees, a dip here offers a feeling of unbridled freedom.

For an even more relaxing and immersive soak, retreat to the Japanese hot baths adjacent to the Mountain Pool, and enjoy a serene communal-bath setting traditionally believed to foster emotional intimacy. Separate areas for men and women are provided, or you can meet in the middle for a co-ed experience. The baths are heated to 104 degrees year-round.
