    Great spot for relaxing and taking in the great views. The Japanese baths and spa alila were great. Make sure to use the infinity hot tub hat overlooks the valley begins the property. I will definitely go back.

    Didn't realize this was not an option any more. While breakfast at the main lobby was great, we really enjoy going over to the restaurant and enjoying the view. The Ventana is our Happy Place and has been for nearly 30 years.
