White Water


White Water is the perfect laidback stop on any Big Sur road trip. The hotel has been designed to be soothing on the senses and bring the outdoors in, with a mixture of neutral linens and birch wood accents. The hotel sits atop the cliffside overlooking rugged Moonstone Beach and the winding boardwalk along the shore.

Each of the 25 rooms is carefully presented with artful decoration including warming gas fires and cosy linens. The convenient location just off the highway makes it ideal for a night’s stop somewhere a little more remote and unspoilt. There are a variety of outdoor activities to enjoy at White Water from hiking and cycling to wine tasting in nearby Paso Robles.


A secluded stay suitable for any Californian coastal road trip. Rugged outdoor activities meet chic surfers' paradise, with instant beachside access, panoramic ocean views and relaxing interior design.
