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
My partner and I experienced Solage on a cool and somewhat rainy weekend in February. While I was a bit concerned about the rain - it only made us love Solage that much more! A cozy fireplace in the room, the warm thermal pools and hot tubs in the spa, a delicious glass of red wine at Solbar --- all are perfect for Napa Valley, but really enhanced our experience at Solage in the wet weather.
The staff at this resort really make it special. Both Michael and September in the spa deserve kudos for their warm and welcoming attitude -- and truly going above and beyond with their service.
I would return to this resort time and time again. It truly is a gem!
We stayed three nights at Solage while touring the area with a group of three other couples. This is by far the crown gem resort of the area.
Our room was very modern, clean, as well as spacious, and we had a nice patio outside of our sliding doors to sit and just enjoy the California weather. We loved the flavored water that was brought to our room.
The pool area was large and spacious as well, with plenty of shade if needed. The on-site bar and dining was great, too.
The hotel staff are extremely courteous and helpful with making recommendations for off-site dining. We also loved that complimentary bicycles were available, and we liked being able to bike into town.
It really doesn’t get any better than Solage. We would love to come back and stay again.
This is a place that no matter who I bring, they leave saying that this was the "most amazing place I have ever visited". I have been coming to Solage since they opened... and though things and people have changed, it is still the best place to come and enjoy. Make sure that if you come you reserve time to just stay on property. The spa pool and cabanas are a must in the winter... and in the summer the main pool is more fun that any adult should have. The service will make you feel like a Queen... but it is a casual hotel where a nice pair of jeans at dinner wont' get a second glance. I want to have fun, feel young and rejuvenate and this is the place that i always come back to.
My husband and I stayed here for the weekend for a little staycation. We started the day at the spa, with mudslide treatment. Shout out to Bernardo who provided great service and hospitality through the various phases of the treatment. We then enjoyed the geothermal pool even though it was raining. We checked into our room, turned on the electric fire place, took a nap, and ended the evening with a delicious meal at Solbar. I look forward to going back!
My wife and I stayed here for two days, and it was absolutely one of the most enjoyable experiences we have ever had at a resort/spa. We can't say enough good things about the quality of the resort and especially...the quality of the staff. Everything was fantastic!
Everyone we interacted with, from the front desk, to the restaurant, to the spa, to valet, etc., were always helpful and very friendly. The staff seemed to go out of their way to really get to know us and make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. In particular, the concierge spent quite a bit of time helping us plan our winery visits (note: the concierge can get a lot of the tasting fees waived, which can save a significant amount of $). The valets were tremendous, and were the first ones to notify my wife and I if the Mercedes AMG GT roadster was available for us to use! That's right, the resort has several Mercedes vehicles that can be taken out free of charge. Amazing! We were fortunate to get to use the AMG GT roadster for 6+ hours when we were there. Awesome!
The Spa property and staff were amazing. My wife did a 60 minute Swedish massage and I choose a mud bath experience. We both thoroughly enjoyed our treatments and would absolutely do it again when we come back.
The room was great as you would expect for a resort like this. We loved the casita like atmosphere of having a room away from the main areas with lots of space to move around. All of the bedding, bath, etc., were first class.
We only ate one meal at the restaurant (breakfast), but it was also fantastic.
Overall, we loved this property. My wife and I plan on coming back the next time we travel back to the Calistoga area.
