Cliffs Preserve Hotel
The massive preserve covers 8,000 acres of forest and has six pristine miles of oceanfront. Guides lead guests to see the old-growth forests, giant 4,000-year-old Andean alerce trees, and wildlife like the Humboldt and Magellanic penguins. Stay in one of the private residences, with hot tubs and unobstructed ocean views.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
