Buzzy young wine country enclave with a hip spa, Michelin-starred cuisine, and serious eco-cred
Solage Calistoga is situated on 22 lush acres in northern Napa Valley. The eco-friendly buildings’ exteriors riff on farmhouse architecture. Inside, it’s loft-like minimalism with vaulted ceilings, clean-lined furniture and an airy neutral color scheme of taupe, slate and chocolate. The 89 guest rooms and suites invite relaxation with buttery leather chairs, shady patios, and pillowy beds dressed in high-thread-count linens, and the chill vibe extends into the spa-like bathrooms with their pebblestone showers and organic, local bath products. After a long day of wine tasting, relax by one of two pools—a 130-footer for adults or a separate one for families—or book a treatment at the spa. The centerpiece is its famous Mud Bar & Bathhouse, a series of spring-fed, co-ed pools (or male-/female-only clothing-optional hydrotherapy circuits) complemented by mineral-rich mud body masks. There’s a state-of-the-art gym with free yoga, movement and fitness classes, two bocce courts, and a series of nearby running trails—and you can always take out one of the free retro-style cruiser bikes. That way, you won’t feel guilty about packing the calories back on Solbar, which serves Northern Cali fare paired with biodynamic wines.
In the Area
Ask the concierge (well in advance) to help you make reservations at one of several Michelin-starred restaurants in Yountville: the French Laundry, Bouchon or Redd. Just a little over two miles from the resort is Chateau Montelena, a historic Napa winery that inspired the movie Bottle Shock. Take a 90-minute tour of the 107-room Castello di Amorosa and enjoy sampling fine Italian wines.
How to Get There
The service at Solage is impeccable, from the moment you drive in and the valet parkers are there to greet you to the actual front desk. It's a pet friendly resort so the staff is ready with a water bowl for our thirsty dog and volunteered to take care of pet if you need it. The cottages are very well maintained with all of the amenities needed to make your stay relaxing. Marie, the pool attendant at the spa pools was extremely attentive and always had a smile on her face. The spa pools were my most favorite area to relax, no phones allowed, and it made a big difference.
We stayed at this amazing resort after a week of babysitting. We were ready for a restful few days, sensational food, and amazing massages. Solage delivered on all counts. Plus, the staff were uniformly upbeat, ready to do anything to enhance comfort. They even had a handy transportation service (golf cart) to whisk you between the room and Wellness Center, fitness center, restaurant, and heated pools. Can't wait to return!
Don't be fooled by the beautiful views. Yes the view is beautiful but the food is a disappointment. You will kick yourself for paying for a supposedly "good experience". They couldn't even get a simple berry bowl right. We had breakfast and lunch there as well and it was sad. What's worse is the spa. They will make and confirm your appointment and then when you come in tell you that you don't have a reservation at the spa and that your appointment was never confirmed. Really? It's all in our email convo Elizabeth. And Hailey was not only unpleasant to the eye but to the ears. She was so rude I wanted to slap her. Yep. Avoid at all cost.
