In The Mood For Love

by Danielle Stein

For the couple who are too connected—to their PDAs:

Big Sur, California
You take 15 separate calls during your morning jog on the treadmill, think about tomorrow's meeting while your kids tell you about their school day, and not-so-stealthily answer e-mails during their band recitals. The Post Ranch Inn will put a stop to all that behavior, stat. Its position on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the vast blue-gray Pacific—easily one of the most dramatic coastlines in the world—renders wireless devices less than effective. And your ocean- or mountain-view room doesn't even have a TV. Which means you'll have no choice but to be under the covers by 9 p.m.—and without a CSI episode beckoning for your attention. It's the rare (but amply rewarded) visitor who's still awake at 1 a.m. when the nearby Esalen Institute, whose health gurus have appeared on Oprah, opens its natural hot-spring baths to the public for two hours. There, you just might find yourself getting involved with the old-fashioned kind of PDA.
