Post Ranch Inn
Scale of 90-100
Set along a bluff directly above the Pacific in Big Sur, this unique coastal resort is 45 minutes south of Carmel. The 39 contemporary guest lodgings include Cliff House, with a glass-walled bedroom and deck suspended over the cliffs; the circular Pacific Suites, with heated floors, outdoor stainless-steel infinity hot tubs and private entrances; freestanding Ocean Houses, recessed into a ridge; plus Coast Houses, all with views of the ocean. Spacious interiors feature natural wood and stone trims, woodburning fireplaces and spa tubs but no TVs. The Sierra Mar restaurant, serving four- and six-course prix fixe menus, is backed by an impressive wine cellar.
