Post Ranch Signature Disinfection and Hygiene Solution

Rather than use bleach or other toxic chemicals to disinfect, Post Ranch set out to find a disinfection and cleaning solution that stayed true to our environmental ethos. After a comprehensive search, Post Ranch has implemented a two-step disinfection program that works to purify the air and renders surfaces self-disinfecting in a non-toxic, sustainable and healthful manner. The solution meets CDC and EPA guidelines, is Green Seal-certified and provides an odorless, non-toxic, hospital-grade disinfecting and cleaning system. 

  • The solution purifies the air and renders surfaces self-disinfecting in a non-toxic, sustainable and healthful manner.

  • The program utilizes the non-toxic, EPA-approved ECA Water* to disinfect and will be used in all guestrooms and public spaces frequently throughout the day. It will also be administered in our vehicles.

We want to provide our guests with the highest level of personalized service and attention, while also respecting personal space. To that end, we will be integrating some of the services that are traditionally carried out during evening turndown service into the daily service, potentially eliminating one of the steps where staff needs to enter the room. Additional services are always available for guests upon request. To accommodate personal preferences, we are offering various options:

  • Daily Service: Our team will access your room once daily to provide room make-up service and to restock your complimentary mini-bar and firewood.

  • Requested Service Only: We understand some guests may prefer complete guestroom privacy. Prior to arrival, we will stock your room for the entire stay, and discuss options for the delivery of extra linens, bathroom amenities, mini-bar items, and firewood deliveries.

Certain items throughout the guestroom, including the mini-bar and coffee makers, will be completely replaced prior to guests entering the room. We have also eliminated all magazines and collateral material, and have thoroughly disinfected all items in the room.

Meals and enhanced dining options

  • Monterey County has recently placed a restriction on indoor dining in all restaurants. As such, until further notice, dining at Sierra Mar will take place outside on the deck. Due to limited outdoor seating, advanced reservations are required for all dining periods. As an alternative, guests may enjoy their meals in the comfort of the guestroom.

  • Complimentary breakfast offers a full service, cooked-to-order experience and can be enjoyed either outdoors on the deck at Sierra Mar or in the guestroom.

  • Lunch can be delivered to the guestroom or to another location around the property.

  • Dinner can be enjoyed outdoors on the deck at Sierra Mar or in the guestroom. Guests will have a range of options including a four-course tasting menu featuring numerous selections from which to choose, as well as family-style meals.

Swimming and Basking Pools

  • Lounge chairs at each of the pools will be separated by at least 6 feet to allow for physical distancing.

  • Pool service will be available at all pools, as attendants will be regularly monitoring and sanitizing the pool areas.

Spa and Activities

  • The Post Ranch Spa is now open and operating safely per Monterey County guidelines. Spa services are available in any of our four treatment rooms, our private Yurt and outdoors in our private, open-air tent.

  • To prioritize the health and well-being of both our guests and team members, we are offering a modified menu of spa services and have reduced the capacity of our treatment areas. Each treatment room will ‘rest’ for a minimum of 30 minutes between appointments to allow for the deep cleaning and sanitization of the room.

  • Spa appointments tend to fill up quickly due to high demand and we are unable to guarantee last-minute availability. Advance reservations are required for all spa services and we strongly recommend making your reservations at least 4-6 weeks in advance. All services are subject to availability and change.

  • In compliance with the mandatory California order, both guests and therapists are required to wear masks for the entirety of all spa treatments.

  • We offer a myriad of complimentary outdoor guest activities including yoga and meditation, hikes, property walks, our new falconry program (fee) and more, weather permitting. Days and times for each activity vary and are subject to availability. Advanced reservations are required for all activities and are subject to appropriate social distancing guidelines.
