A peaceful coastal refuge with ocean views, wildlife, and old world charm. Asilomar is located on the Monterey Peninsula in charming Pacific Grove, California. Its restored dune ecosystem and its historic “Arts and Crafts” style architecture (designed by the world renowned Julia Morgan) come together to make Asilomar a designated National Historic Landmark. And it’s no surprise—its 107 acres of beachfront property provide endless breathtaking views and opportunities for marine wildlife watching, creating a peaceful retreat for anyone (or any size group, with its ample meeting and conference spaces) seeking a meditative, restorative, and grounding place to stay.

In keeping with its rest and reflection traditions, the guest rooms at Asilomar are simple and beautiful—and most importantly free of modern-day distractions such as telephones and televisions (though there is complimentary wifi, should you really need it). Historic and contemporary rooms are available.

Dining Options
Asilomar also has an impressive dining hall with high-beamed ceilings, stone pillars, hardwood floors and incomparable views of the forest and the dunes of Asilomar State Beach. An actual bell rings to announce breakfast, lunch, and dinner, open in the hall, with an additional cafe that serves coffees, teas, lunch, lite bites and a great selection of wine and beer. The dining hall’s daily menu highlights fresh, seasonal, local produce procured directly from Asilomar’s network of regional, organic farmers.
