The United States

Perched above one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, in the heart of Big Sur, this romantic retreat is a favourite of LA’s celebrity set who come here for privacy, serenity – and to detox. The focus of this high-end green escape is on health and wellness, with organic and healthy cuisine a priority, organic and biodynamic wines served and water filtered and bottled from the property’s own spring. Cottages have been built around existing trees, and have a king-sized bed, wood-burning fireplace, and private deck. If you are looking for exclusivity, this is it. Just ask Jennifer Aniston.
