Our favourite rooms
Pfeiffer is a cocoon of redwood with a secluded setting at the end of the cabins. Other humans will be hard to come by – all you can see is sparkling ocean, wild flowers and trees. We love the triple veranda, and the re-used redwood lining the walls in Ross.
There are three heated infinity pools in the grounds – one lined with sea-weathered jade, a stainless steel one, and a lap pool by reception.
A journal so you scribble some verse – this land’s-end location is sure to make you come over all poetic.
There’s a free minibar in the rooms, stocked with snacks and non-alcohol drinks.
Leave them at home - this hotel is only open to adults ages 18 and up.
