- Two 50-minute spa treatments.
- One two-hour photography session and guided tour of Big Sur, led by an instructor.
- One 16-by-24-inch print of an image taken during the photo tour.
The package starts at $645 for a three-night minimum stay, with savings beginning at $425. Because the room rate is based on availability, the total savings depend on when the package is booked.
