Seven Romantic Places to Stay in the Napa Valley
May 12, 2016
If big romance is on your mind, making a day trip to the Napa Valley might not be enough. Whether it’s a special occasion or just some time out with the one you love, spending a few nights in the wine country can turn the dial from warm to hot. And many hotels, resorts, and spas offer special romance packages or treatments that will put your getaway over-the-top. Here are a few for your consideration.
Bardessono Hotel and Spa – Book the romance package, which includes a luxurious suite with welcome bottle of Billecart-Salmon Sparkling Rosé Champagne; flickering candles and bath salts for the oversized soaking tub; and a copy of The Quiz Book for Couples to learn even more about your partner. You can enhance your stay by adding a private, in-room Couple’s Massage for an additional fee. For more adventurous couples, the Drift-the-Day-Away package features a hot-air balloon ride and breakfast for two.
Carneros Resort & Spa – Ask for “Love Is In The Air,” a one-night stay in the accommodation of your choice; a bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival; breakfast in bed for two and a $100 spa services credit.
Calistoga Ranch – Reserve the “Ultimate Indulgence After Hours,” a romantic evening that begins with 60-minute, side-by-side aromatherapy massages in the spa’s deluxe couple’s suite. After your treatment, you’ll have complete privacy with the spa all to yourself for two hours – you can sip Champagne, enjoy the eucalyptus steam room, and soak in warm pools under the evening stars. Then enjoy a chef’s choice dessert before a roaring fire. The package also includes butler service and two complimentary bathrobes.
Villagio Inn & Spa – This Yountville resort’s five elegantly appointed private spa suites feature endless treatment options customized especially for you and your sweetie. You can choose your favorite scents, sounds, and spa refreshments, along with amenities like infinity-edge soaking tubs; team showers; flat-screen television; Bose sound system; private terrace; and fireplace. And the whole three-and-a-half-hour “Suite Sensation Together” experience is paired with food and wine and includes private suite time. Be sure to ask for the spa suite with the outdoor double tubs to make it even more special.
Napa River Inn – Nothing says romance like a deliciously comfortable bed, local hand-made body and bath products, a glowing fireplace, and breakfast delivered to your room in the morning. Except maybe a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolate-covered strawberries waiting for you when you check into your luxury hotel on the Napa waterfront. The Romance Package can be easily added on to any reservation. After pampering yourselves with a couple’s massage at The Spa at Napa River Inn, strolling hand-in-hand along the River Walk is the perfect ending to a day of happy coupledom.
Westin Verasa Napa – The Westin’s Romance Package includes deluxe room accommodations, sparkling wine and strawberries for two, and daily breakfast for two daily in the BANK Cafe or in-room dining. You can pre-order thoughtful amenities to be delivered upon your arrival, or book an in-room couple’s massage from Gloria Curry Day Spa. Then indulge in a romantic dinner a deux at the Michelin-starred La Toque restaurant.
The Inn On First – At this intimate inn in downtown Napa, you can enjoy a private whirlpool tub for two in your private room with gas fireplace while sipping from a complimentary split bottle of sparkling wine from Mumm Napa or nibbling on complimentary house-made chocolate truffles. And innkeeper Jamie Cherry creates and escorts private, customized wine tours to smaller wineries where you can meet the winemaker and/or owner, perhaps followed by a romantic lunch al fresco or in town.
