You can now earn Hyatt elite nights at a Big Sur, California campground: but you will need to bring your own tent, bed, towels, food, and anything else you might need for the night.
Earn Hyatt Credit At Ventana Campground In Big Sur, California
For $80/night, you can access your own plot of land at the Ventana Campground in Big Sur, California. Do plan ahead, though, because this is not a luxury experience.
Ventana Campground is a tent-only campground. We are not able to accommodate RVs, motor homes, travel trailers, pop-up tent trailers, camper vans, trucks with roof tents or small campers on top.
You will need to bring your own tent, but you will have access to shared bathhouses. Fancy a shower? That will run you $2 for every five minutes. Forget about Wi-Fi or access to resort amenities at the nearby Ventana Big Sur, part of Hyatt’s Alila portfolio.
Glamping Also An Option At 3x Price
If you’re not one to pitch a tent and sleep in a sleeping bag (I’m certainly not…), you can go glamping, a portmanteau of glamorous and camping.
$240 will get you access to a safari lodge like experience of a plush bed, electrical outlets, wi-fi, access to the bath houses, and treats like hot chocolate and smores.
Glamping used to include access to the Ventana Big Sur facilities, but that is no longer the case due to new social distancing guidelines in place.
It has been over 20 years since I have gone camping…is $80 the going rate now for a campsite or is that just Hyatt’s grossly inflated price? $240 for a semi-outdoor cabin also seems a bit much. But I’m going to have to check it out. Since children are not allowed at the Ventana Big Sur Resort, maybe I can leave them at the campground with a babysitter! 😉
