CELEBRATE THE SEASONS in BIG SUR
February is Romance Month at Ventana
As one of the most scenic and dramatic spots in the world, Big Sur has long been a favorite for those seeking to forge stronger connections—or spark new ones.
Looking for the perfect place to pop the question? From our Glass House Gallery, perched more than 1,000 feet above the Pacific, to secluded spots in the forest or on the beach, you’re sure to find the one ideal for asking your partner to be the one. We offer custom packages with a picnic or dinner, along with other memorable touches like rose petals, candles, and of course, celebratory Champagne!
Love Among the Redwoods
A camping trip for Valentine’s Day? Why not? Especially when it’s a glamping trip at our Redwood or Canyon Glampsites. In your spacious safari-style tent, you’ll slumber on a plush glamping mattress and enjoy amenities you won’t find at any other campground—even a luxurious Bath House with teak-enclosed showers and heated floors. Of course, all glamping guests also have access to The Sur House, Spa Alila, heated outdoor pools, our fitness facility, and everything else Ventana has to offer.
The Sur House Lovers Menu
It’s already a romantic setting, but The Sur House is turning the heat up in February with our Lovers Menu featuring aphrodisiac-inspired dishes for two. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month, you and yours can enjoy oysters, spot-prawn carpaccio, asparagus salad, butter-poached lobster, and dessert for just $125 per person.
Love a Little Longer
It’s easy to make more time for romance at Ventana—because when you stay two nights, your third night is on us.
Big Sur Spirit
This ultra-romantic package draws upon the ethereal atmosphere of Big Sur to strengthen your bond as a couple.
at the social house
It’s one of the most beautiful locations at Ventana. And every day on the Social House patio, high above the coast, it’s also one of the most lively, thanks to our new Social Hour. Enjoy one of our rotating specialty cocktails, a glass of red or white wine, and a sipping spirit on occasion. Snack on spiced popcorn and nuts. Savor the views, the company, and maybe even the vinyl in the Social House record collection. But don’t worry about the tab; Social Hour is one of the many benefits included in your Ventana Big Sur stay.
Daily, 4-5 p.m.
at The Sur house
When spring arrives in Big Sur, there’s no better place than The Sur House patio for outdoor dining. Above the fog, with the sea crashing below, it’s an incredible vantage point—and the perfect spot to celebrate Easter with a special brunch on April 12. We’ll have holiday favorites, including ham and lamb shoulder at our carving station, salmon and lox, a raw bar, charcuterie and cheese, an omelet station, desserts, and much more (including an optional Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar).
Sunday, April 12, 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. $85/adults, $45/kids, age 5 and under free. A la carte kids’ menu available. Add $25 per person for Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar.
