This resort, spread over a series of villas dotting a verdant hillside, hangs its hat on service, and no sooner are you through the gate than a phalanx of attendants greets you, whisks away your bags and hands you a glass of wine. The hospitality team is everywhere, and, with their neat tennis whites and caps, they give the resort a country club vibe. In the main building housing the restaurant and a more casual bar, recently updated interiors bring a bright, rich look reminiscent of a secluded Côte d’Azur retreat. The sexy pool — dubbed La Plage — maintains that mood, with comfy chaises, gauze-draped day beds and stunning Valley views.
Bed & Bath
Guestrooms — villa-like units, really — continue the theme of pampered indulgence with designer Michael Taylor infusing sunny California style with a taste of Provence. All the comforts of home, if only home were this comfortable, are here: Wood and natural fabrics dominate the warm, earth-tone decor; French doors open to private terraces; and the soaking tub in the spa-style bathroom is built for two. There’s plenty of room to stretch out on plush couches and enjoy the crackle of the fireplace, which takes the chill off a cool Napa night.
One of the most spectacular features of the Restaurant at Auberge du Soleil is the view of the valley afforded by an alfresco meal, though it would be hard to overshadow the food itself. Under the direction of Executive Chef Robert Curry, the famed Napa Valley restaurant has earned back-to-back Michelin stars for farm-fresh fare paired with the Valley’s finest wines. The on-site spa offers a full range of relaxing treatments in a tranquil location overlooking the sculpture walk, a joy unto itself. After dark, the landscaped walkways of the Auberge take on a life of their own with strategically lit trees and sculptures standing out in the darkness and guiding you along the labyrinthine walkways.
In the Area
There are five Michelin stars in nearby Yountville. The French Laundry takes credit for three of them, and Bouchon and the California cuisine of Redd have each been awarded one. Oenophiles should indulge in a private tour and tasting of the Domaine Chandon vineyard. Pair steaks at Press with some of the big reds from the all-Napa wine list, or explore some of the more rare and interesting local vinos in the 10,000-bottle wine cellar, which creates the opportunity for vertical tastings going back to the 1960s. For a truly unique experience, visit the historic Inglenook, one of the oldest consistently operational wineries in the area (formerly Inglenook Chateau, which was built in late 1800s, then purchased by the Coppola family in the 1970s and fully restored); it offers tours, a museum and tastings in its wine cave.
How to Get There
I loved my stay, but I’m also very glad it’s only 2-3 days. Such a great place to relax, immerse in the natural surroundings, and get some very good sleep.
Dining options are very limited. The food quality is good though. Same with activités on site. The hotel has a small spa, with beautiful dipping pools but limited steam/ sauna facility. The changing rooms are constantly not stocked and have only 3 lockers without lock. Either they have better changing facilities, or they could invest in plastic slippers in room so people could use and walk to the spa in their robes. Personally, I would love to have a steam room indoor for privacy, hygiene, and temperature reasons.
Breakfast is very nice. Room quality is fantastic. About 15-20 mins drive to nearest restaurants/ main st.
Overall I’d definitely be back!
Hello, this was the best hotel experience I’ve had. Everything was five star from the moment we checked until we left. The rooms were spacious the food in the room and at the restaurant was great. The staff is Knowledgeable and friendly.I would definitely recommend staying there.
Could not have asked for a better experience. You will not be disappointed. Everyone was so kind and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon. We hope that anyone else who goes has just as fabulous a time as we did. We cannot wait to go back and enjoy the wonderful hotel and all the great people that helped make us feel special.
It’s our second time at Auberge and while it was winter it’s just a great place to stay even though we couldn’t enjoy the pool, we highly recommend this property to anyone thinking of staying in the Napa lots of great restaurants nearby plus wonderful wineries.
My husband and I went to Auberge Du Soleil for our 36th Anniversary and we loved every minute of our stay in this great hotel nestled in the heart of the wine country, with its amazing views, great amenities and lovely and very welcoming staff. We will certainly go back and take our family too.
