Lodging and Meals

Asilomar offers charming accommodations that are perfect for anyone dedicated to rest and reflection. In keeping with this tradition, guest rooms are free of modern-day distractions such as telephones and televisions. Historic Rooms are located in buildings designed by renowned architect Julia Morgan and built between 1913 and 1928, and feature the charms of hardwood floors and rustic furnishings, along with private baths. The more contemporary Asilomar/Standard Rooms are available with patios, balconies and cozy fireplaces.

When you select your room, please know that all of your meals are included in the price. If you need a roommate to reduce your cost, you can make a request through the CETA portal. You can also register a partner or child as part of your room registration.

For room/meal registration, it is important that you register through the CETA portal so that you have access to our room block. To reserve your room, click here.
