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
Returning after two years away, we were so excited for our trip to Solage and completely disappointed. Emails sent beforehand went unanswered. We were married at Solage two years ago, and nothing special was planned for our return... at the very least I expected a welcome back greeting. We had ants in our room and weren't offered to move rooms or sent a bottle of wine. They've cut the complimentary wine and tote bag in the room. The place was understaffed. Room service took almost two hours. The pool had broken furniture and glasses everywhere. Housekeeping was excellent and it is a beautiful resort. But when you pay $600+ a night, you expect a little magic. And Solage doesn't have it. I would not recommend.
Perfect place for a splurge in Napa Valley. Everything-- from the room to the grounds to the spa-- was gorgeous, with nice touches throughout. Service was tremendous. It was so lovely to be able to bring our dogs to such a luxurious place. Running out of adjectives to express my effusive praise for this place. Certainly not cheap, but great for a special occasion.
From check in to check out, this was a top notch experience. The staff all called us by name, acknowledged our anniversary and went above and beyond to meet all our needs and then some. The massages were amazing ,The restaurant, Sol Bar is fantastic and the cottages are beautiful and comfortable. We can't wait to go back.
