Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, California

Perched on a cliff 1,200 feet above the ocean, Post Ranch Inn and Spa has developed a cult following for its laid-back luxury and immediate connection to nature. On one side, it faces the Pacific Ocean and on the other, the granite peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains. The spa's floor-to-ceiling windows maximize the arresting mountain views, but guest room treatments also have their perks: Rooms are equipped with massage tables, large indoor spa tubs, fireplaces, and, for guests staying in a Pacific Suite or the Cliff or Peak houses, a hot tub on the balcony.

Five-Star Treatments: Try the Big Sur Jade Stone Therapy ($220): The soothing massage uses warmed jade from the Big Sur coastline, basalt from surrounding rivers, and cool marble. Follow it with a heavenly aromatherapy body wrap.

Rates start at $775; 800/527-2200 or postranchinn.com.
