Meetings Overview



The best events all begin with a little inspiration—something you’ll find plenty of at Ventana Big Sur. Whether it’s a corporate retreat, sales meeting, product launch or strategy session, our Big Sur setting features more than 12,000 square feet of stunning indoor and outdoor spaces overlooking the rugged Pacific Coast and surrounded by towering redwoods. All offer flexible configurations for social distancing and safety, and we have refined other key aspects of our operations as well, from catering to cleaning. At Ventana, it’s possible to be productive and have peace of mind, too.


The same creative spirit that has inspired artists in Big Sur for centuries also provides inspiration for productive meetings, memorable events and joyous celebrations. Alila Ventana makes it easy to harness this iconic region’s adventurous spirit with 12,000 square feet of unique indoor and outdoor space for executive summits, private dinners and other gatherings
