The Monterey Bay Inn invites its guests to make use of the spa at its sister hotel, the Casa Munras, also on Cannery Row. The Casa Munras spa offers a variety of massages, including aromatherapy and prenatal massage, and has a diverse menu of facials, body therapies, scrubs and body polishes awaiting guests of The Monterey Bay Inn.
The Monterey Bay area has some of the nation’s best drives, walks and tourist attractions. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is the most popular attraction in the area; it is a leader in ocean preservation and its innovative displays and programs are designed to showcase the variety and fascination of sea creatures.
Visitors there can get up close and personal with African penguins, view the habitat of sea otters, arguably the cutest animals in existence, view the gigantic kelp forest, home to a multitude of sea life, and in the aquarium’s habitats, visitors can see giant pacific octopi, tiny sea urchins, sea turtles, puffins and 200-pound sea bass. One day is not enough to appreciate this wonderful aquarium.
Another popular and beloved way to spend time in the Monterey area is along 17-Mile Drive, a route around the Monterey Peninsula that hugs the rocky coastline and offers scenic vistas of the Pacific Ocean, stately mansions, the world-famous Pebble Beach golf course and a forest of cypress trees. Drivers may stop and look at The Lone Cypress, perched on a promontory above the Pacific Ocean, which is the most-photographed tree in the country. Picnickers will find many perfect sites to take a break, eat a sandwich and look out upon the waves crashing against the rocks on the shoreline.
The Monterey Bay Inn has two private boardrooms, one that seats eight and one that seats eighteen. These boardrooms have patios and are filled with natural light.
The patios contain fire pits and are perfect for luncheon meetings and pre-dinner cocktails. The inn has up-to-date audio-visual equipment, wireless Internet service, event planning staff and a business center to help guests have the best meeting possible.
