Daily 24 Hour Service
It's understandable that you might not have the budgetary wherewithal to actually sleep at this stunningly scenic Big Sur retreat, but by all means temporarily live the high life with a view-blessed lunch at the onsite restaurant or a glass of champagne in the glass-walled lobby bar.
Romantic Proposal in Carmel – I choose this hotel to propose to my girlfriend. It looked really nice online and has a restaurant where I planned to propose. Their concierge, Charlie, hooked me up with a service called Romantic Room Designs, which I contracted to decorate my room with a romantic flair. In speaking with their owner, Brian, he convinced me to do the proposal in the room. Everything turned out SO great. We went to dinner and when I didn't propose she seemed a little put off. When we walked back to our room, the lights were dim and their was a pathway of rose petals and candles leading to the bedroom. There were red roses and candles and chocolate and champagne - looked elegant but "wow." I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me and she said yes! What a great memory. I honestly don't remember much else about the hotel but Charlie and Brian helped me to create a great proposal story.
Outstanding Views, romantic place to stay – We stayed here quite a while ago and the place was looking a bit worn. Hyatt took it over and made it one of their Park Hyatt properties. After I guess it was one year of renovations, this hotel has returned to prominence! The rooms are very luxurious, the views are still tremendous and the service was excellent. Their Pacifc's Edge restaurant is one of those dining experiences you savor for quite a while (and so you should at that price!). Lobby area with big fireplaces, ocean views...very relaxing and peaceful. My wife surprised me by having our room decorated for our anniversary by a local company called Romantic Room Designs. When we got there, we had rose petals, candles, supplies for the bath, and some extra romantic goodies! We definitely plan on returning to the Highlands (and I've heard the Tickle Pink Inn next door is good too - just not as many services). A great anniversary memory!
Nice and Romantic, Just what the doctor ordered – As I type this from the feathered bed with the fireplace a blaze. This is a great hotel but here are some things I noticed. There are no convenient power outlets. Internet access is Wifi with T-mobile hotspot and you must create and account. Don't trust the maid's way of starting a fire, it is set up for show. There is no gas, it is 100% wood burning. A big moth just flew into the room because there is no screen to the sliding door to the balconey. Now the view rooms of the ocean are simply amazing and worth the extra money, otherwise stay somewhere else. The bed is comfortable with extra fluffy pillows. Parking is far from our room, but it was self service or valet. If you want to get away this is the perfect place!!!!!
Incredible views are just the beginning at this fabulous inn. – The Scene
This hotel has been a world-famous getaway since it opened in 1917. Following a $41 million renovation in 2002, its facilities compete with the most luxurious 21st-century hotel. From its 11-acre perch on the cliffs overlooking the crashing waves of Big Sur, this pine-shrouded resort commands one of the most awe-inspiring views on the central California coastline. It's no wonder it is so popular with honeymooners.
The guest rooms will make you feel as if you've acquired your own private coastal cottage. All feature fireplaces, kitchens and double spa baths. A swimming pool and several secluded outdoor spas offer a relaxing way to soak up the surroundings. Complimentary mountain bikes are available and kayaking, deep sea-fishing, and horseback riding can be arranged. There are also championship golf courses minutes away. While area dining is a highlight, you don't have to go far for a great meal; just book a table at the Pacific Edge.
