Post Ranch Spa

An intimate, rustic retreat in Big Sur
Post Ranch Spa focuses on nature-based therapies, such as the wildflower facial with organic plants and Big Sur flowers, and the skin-renewing Hungarian herbal body wrap, which blends organic herbs (including sage, ivy, cinnamon and paprika) with a Hungarian thermal mud body mask. 

Several treatments also draw from Native American rituals, such as the Big Sur jade stone therapy, which uses jade collected from nearby beaches and basalt river rocks with massage to relieve sore muscles, and cooled marble to release inflammation. Private hikes, meditation sessions, yoga and couples massage instruction are also available.
