Whether you’re just looking for a romantic getaway with your significant other or hoping to celebrate Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, or your honeymoon, it’s always a good time to book a vacation in Napa Valley to celebrate love.
Romantic resorts in Napa Valley
- Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley – The valley’s newest resort is also its swankiest—and a welcoming spot to bring a paramour. Rooms boast soaking tubs big enough for two, while the on-site Spa Talisa offers several options for couples including massages, facials, or mud experiences. There’s even a working winery at this Calistoga resort; book a private tasting and you and your loved one can sip in the barrel room, just the two of you.
- Solage Calistoga – Every room is a standalone cabin at this Calistoga resort, which means privacy is paramount. Larger rooms have private hot tubs; all accommodations come with two bicycles for exploring. Spa Solage has become famous for its take on the traditional mud bath, and there are rooms for couples to experience it together. The Michelin-rated Solbar has ample outdoor seating for dinners by moonlight.
- The Meritage Resort & Spa – Located at the southern end of the valley, this expansive resort is a destination onto itself. The year-round “Love” package includes chocolate-covered strawberries, sparkling wine, a $150 dining credit, and a $500 credit to the on-site Spa Terra. The resort concierge also will organize romantic adventures for you and your loved one. Did someone say hot air balloon ride for two?
Napa Valley hotels for lovers
- North Block Hotel – Rooms are sexy at this Yountville hotel, which won a 2020 award from Travel + Leisure for the No. 1 hotel in California. King-sized, four-post beds combine with dark-wood furniture to set the mood, while spacious bathrooms offer opportunities to unwind in peace. Many rooms have patios—inviting spots for evening wine and conversation.
- Archer Hotel – Centrally located in downtown Napa, everything at the Archer revolves around the roof. There, a small soaking pool (literally, the water is only about six inches deep) is a great spot to sunbathe with your lover, while the rooftop Sky & Vine Rooftop Bar offers a reverse Happy Hour from 9-11 p.m. Rooms are modern but cozy, with floor-to-ceiling windows.
- SENZA Hotel – Each suite feels like a private getaway at this modern and art-filled hotel that looks out over the vineyards in Oakville. Accommodations come standard with fireplaces, and French doors lead to private balconies or patios. Morning breakfast includes pastries from Bouchon—a great way to start the day in bed. The hotel is within walking distance of Bistro Don Giovanni, a romantic Italian eatery.
- Wydown Hotel – This boutique hotel features spacious guest rooms stocked with sparkling water, local wine, and plush robes—all the most important accoutrements for a night in. Located in the heart of St. Helena, the Wydown is a short walk to more than 20 tasting rooms and the Culinary Institute of America. Hotel staff serve complimentary continental breakfast every morning in the lobby tearoom.

Swoon at these Napa Valley Inns and B&Bs
- The Ink House (pictured at top) – Jean-Charles Boisset recently purchased this stately Victorian-style St. Helena bed-and-breakfast, which means the décor is on-point. Accommodations are luxuriously appointed with designs that tell the story of Theron Ink, the Inn’s original owner. Boisset’s team offers a variety of romance packages, including custom and catered meals for two.
- Bann at Oak Knoll – A stay at this three-room B&B is like a mini-vacation to Thailand, as the place is a passion-project for Chef Lalita Souksamlan. This means sumptuous design, lots of pillows, and beds that invite you to lounge all day long. The grounds are calming and quiet—the perfect backdrop to connect with your partner on a spiritual level.
- Poetry Inn – This Yountville gem completed a serious makeover in late 2021 and is better than ever. Perched on a hill with stunning valley-wide views over the Stags Leap District, it has five ultra-intimate guest rooms and suites—each of which comes with a private terrace, wood-burning fireplace, and both an indoor and outdoor shower.
- Brannan Cottage Inn – Named one of USA Today’s “10 Best Romantic Places to Stay in Napa Valley,” this Calistoga icon was built in 1860 by city founder Samuel Brannan and is one of only three remaining cottages from Brannan’s original hot springs resort.
