Big Sur is one of the best places on the planet – at least we think so. It is one of the ultimate natural beauties with its jaw-dropping picturesque Pacific Coastline, hidden beaches, old growth redwoods, myriad of rare birds flying around in the sky, fresh-fresh-fresh air, and… oh, yes, modern architecture. Ok, we admit that most of the lodging in Big Sur is more cabin that couture, but not so with at the Post Ranch Inn. This place is amazing. You can win a free weekend get-a-way at the Post Ranch Inn through the California Home + Design website (apparently through a Mr. & Mrs Smith Hotel Collection partnership). An entry would be well worth the opportunity to win. To learn more about the contest and enter to win – read more via Win The Ultimate Retreat to Big Sur’s Post Ranch Inn | California Home + Design.

Fodor’s just published their list of the “10 Best Luxury Hotel Spas” with some great resorts from around the world included. The list includes spas with indoor-outdoor therapeutic treatments, herbal and natural healing treatments, Ayurvedic and holistic treatments, oceanfront treatments, and of course all of the best massage and pressure-point treatments one can enjoy on regular basis. Best of all, the list is populated with modern, luxurious, design-oriented resorts. So there is no need to sacrifice your aesthetic sensibility to get a good spa-treatment.
Sandra Ramani authored the article at Fodor’s and sums it up when she writes:
Historically, wellness retreats and destination spas weren’t concerned with things like posh furnishings, gourmet eats, or locker room freebies, focusing instead on their (sometimes strict) health and lifestyle programs. Now that luxury hotels and resorts are in the spa game, though, things have changed: These days, spa aficionados are likely to find extras like homemade organic snacks, private treatment villas, and high-tech facilities (think indoor “snow rooms”) to complement the therapeutic services. Below are some favorite five-star spots that take pampering to a whole other level.
