Just imagine this scene for a second…
White wooden fences lining fields of gently swaying wild grass and California poppies. Rows upon rows of vines that provide picturesque pathways to spectacular vantage points. Gnarled oak trees overlooking rolling green fields offering shaded spots to take it all in. And a Tuscan-styled resort set at the foot of all of this natural beauty, whose grandeur is both an echo of the past and a wonderful example of modern hospitality.
You’ve just imagined The Meritage Resort and Spa.
Set in the heart of Napa Valley, just off the north coast of the San Francisco Bay Area, stay at The Meritage and you get all the benefits of the serene wine country. It’s the gateway to the best that Napa has to offer, and since its set just in front of its own vineyards and tasting room; as soon as you check in your Napa experience will already have begun.
Ideally located for visits to the iconic Carneros wine regions and even Sonoma County, we’ll arrange a driver to take you from vineyard to vineyard for the ultimate opportunity to immerse yourself in Napa living.
With opulent furnishings, plush beds and marble baths, your room will be a welcome respite after a day of exploring California’s famed wine country. Some rooms include a terrace or patio overlooking the vast and peaceful rolling hills of vines, whilst all provide a bottle of red to kick off your wine tasting experiences. The dark wood and mosaic murals you’ll spot throughout the resort will transport you to Italy, whilst the charm of the staff and the unmistakable Napa landscapes that surround will keep your feet firmly planted in California.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Aside from the grounds that wouldn’t go amiss in a Wordsworth poem, the resort has another incredible offering – The Spa Cave. Consistently placed as one of the top 100 spas in the whole U.S, the location of the spa alone is something to behold. Literally set in a cave that’s been carved into the earth below the vineyards, you’ll really be at the heart of it all as you enjoy a world-class treatment. Labyrinthine tunnels lead you to your atmospheric treatment room or relaxation lounge with a feature water-wall, whilst the candle brackets and mosaics continue the Italian theme of the resort. Quiet and softly lit, we couldn’t think of a better place to unwind after a hard day of wine tasting in the sunshine.
