Any trip to Napa Valley promises to delight your senses, from the smell of perfectly aged vino to the taste of local ingredients straight from the farm. On your next visit to Wine Country, take it up a notch. Head to one of the best Napa Valley hotels with spas, and melt your stress away with a deep-tissue massage or feel your skin tickle during an exfoliating scrub.
We expect nothing less than a relaxing retreat when we escape to Napa Valley, but at Expedia.com we wanted to further pamper ourselves, so we partnered up with Visit Napa Valley to discover some of the top hotel spas around the vineyards. With tranquil rooms and renewing services, rest and recharge at these resorts before another round of wine tastings.
Villagio Inn and Spa
Unwind at the family-owned Villagio Inn and Spa, and receive a complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival—a fitting souvenir for a visit to Napa Valley’s Yountville. The inn serves complimentary Champagne breakfast buffets, afternoon tea and scone spreads, and evening wine tastings every weekend. As for the guestrooms and suites, they’re decked out with fireplaces, private wine cellars, and balconies or patios, providing the ultimate retreat. During your visit, indulge in the local, farm-to-table fare at Chef Michael Chiarello’s Bottega, kick back in a poolside cabana, and spoil yourself with the services at Spa Villagio.
From head to toe, the Spa Villagio offers indulgent services to send you into deep relaxation. Feel the stress slip away with the Organic Aromatherapy Massage, and rejuvenate with the Fruity Peel that exfoliates and brightens skin. The Hydramemory facial incorporates Italian honey and hibiscus flower milk, while the Hot Stone Pedicure releases tension with heated basalt river stones.
Auberge du Soleil
Influenced by Mediterranean styles, Auberge du Soleil, which means “Inn of the Sun,” features inviting guest rooms with French doors and private terraces that overlook sweeping views of the Mayacamas Mountains. The luxury resort, nestled in Rutherford, includes a Michelin-rated restaurant, yoga pavilion, and even a wine club. During your stay, lounge around “La Plage” pool and cabana, and stroll around the AERENA Napa Valley Sculpture Garden, an oasis filled with more than 100 Californian works of art.
Enter the Auberge Spa and experience utter bliss. Designed after an ancient monastery, the spa aces the elements of serenity. Indulge in the Rhythmic Water Massage or the signature Auberge Massage. The resort also offers skin and body services, such as the Pacific Brightening and Lightening Facial and the Age Rebel Facial, along with full-body exfoliation. After some pampering, take a dip in the three springs, overlooking vineyards and olive groves.
The Carneros Inn
After a day spent sipping Sauvignon Blanc and swirling Syrah, retreat to The Carnernos Inn. Surrounded by grapevines and apple orchards, this high-end resort in Napa is committed to providing guests with the utmost comfort. Make yourself at home in one of the houses, cottages, or suites—some come with fireplaces and private courtyards, while others include al fresco showers and heated bathroom floorboards. Submerge yourself in the adult-only Hilltop Pool with views of the countryside, or borrow a bicycle for a ride around the vineyards. Whatever you do during your getaway, make time for some R&R at The Spa at The Carneros Inn.
Experience tranquility with the Lavender & Vine Swedish massage, or let it all go with The Quince Essential, an anti-oxidant, anti-stress treatment. The New Eden includes a mineral-rich fig body polish, the Olive Rosemary Body Scrub leaves skin looking vibrant, and the Seacreation Experience facial uses oceanic ingredients. Add on a Magnolia Hair and Scalp Treatment or go for the Grape Skin Wrap, and you’ll surely slip into a state of serenity.
Between touring the vineyards and revitalizing your mind and body, you’ll leave Wine Country feeling like a whole new you.
