Fodor's Review

Hundreds of celebrities, from Oprah Winfrey to Sir Anthony Hopkins, have escaped to Ventana, a romantic resort on 243 tranquil acres 1,200 feet above the Pacific. The activities here are purposely limited. You can sunbathe (one of the pools is clothing-optional), walk or ride horses in the nearby hills, or pamper yourself with mind-and-body treatments at the Spa at Ventana or in your own private quarters. All rooms have walls of natural wood and cool tile floors; some

have private hot tubs on their patios.
