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
We loved the solage and the entire staff. The grounds and rooms are stunning and everyone is very friendly, accommodating, and laid back. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to wine country!
From check-in to Check-out it was fantastic! Our suites were ready when we arrived. Valet took the car and we didn't see it until we left. (Had a driver during our stay to visit wineries). Mineral Pool HOT, and quiet! GREAT bar staff at the mineral pool. Cabanas are a nice touch as well. Suites are huge with nice outdoor patio. Bikes for each suite, but we didn't get a chance to use them. Bar/restaurant are GREAT! Casual as well. Regular pool and pool bar fantastic! Cannot wait to go again!
The Spa is great and you can come for the day and use the spa. The price point is far too high for what you get. The rooms are nice but basic and come with loud highway noise, especially if you are sitting on your patio. I have stayed at other Auberge resorts and never been disappointed, this resort does not live up to the Auberge label. There are other great places to stay in Napa for a fraction of the price or go to the other Auberge locations in the area.
