The 112-room Villagio and the Mediterranean gardens that fan out around it don’t just evoke Tuscany, they practically transport guests there. Between the sprawling grounds dotted with gurgling fountains, the warm pink and yellow stucco walls and the Mission-style terra-cotta rooftops, you might feel as though you should be sipping Chianti — but here in Napa, it’s all about the Cabs and the Sauvignon Blancs.
Bed & Bath
The buildings that make up the property are clustered so that every room has a private patio or balcony, some with courtyard views. Guestrooms have stucco walls and are furnished in cheery colors. Vino is obviously important here, so rooms have mini-fridges and a cabinet stocked with wines for sale. Wood-burning fireplaces in each room ward off the early morning and late evening chill. But the days here are as sun-drenched and warm as you please — the proper conditions for exploring the three-acre Cabernet vineyard right next to the hotel.
The bucolic surroundings complement the 13,000-square-foot spa, which has 16 treatment rooms and five “spa suites” with fireplaces of their own. Experiences for every taste are available, from 50-minute basic massages to three-and-a-half-hour aromatherapeutic treatments, with Old World techniques used alongside the latest in wellness. It will be hard to tear yourself away from the spa. But after wandering past the gates and finding the street full of world-class dining options, wine-tasting rooms, galleries and shops, you’ll be glad you did. Yountville’s main drag is filled with the aromas of heritage roses and a confit simmering here and a steak grilling there.
How to Get There
Overall staff was nice but the construction made the place look ugly and unwelcoming. The room itself was decent but seems a bit outdated. Did not come with a bottle of wine as many reviews have suggested. The mini “patio” outside was like sitting on walkway so it’s not private or semi private at all.
Spa closes at 5pm so if you check in at 3pm and settled down, basically too late to utilize the spa. There’s no pool on this side so you have to walk to another hotel to use one (believe they’re related but you have to go through a lot of stores/shops, several parking lots). They have a cart service but only 2 carts.
Booked two rooms for this hotel through Expedia on 12/29 for a 5/16-5/19 vacation. Reservation acknowledge by Villagio directly on 1/15. This was a family vacation, and we were traveling from the east coast to San Francisco and wine country. We had confirmed directly with Villagio as we got near the trip timing on 5/1 and was told everything was ready. While we were enjoying our trip to Monterrey, we received a text and email from Expedia explaining that our reservations for both rooms were cancelled due to "overbooking". No effort by Villagio to contact us directly. I immediately contacted Villagio and hit a stone wall. Was told continuing construction was the issue, and they offered absolutely ZERO assistance in helping us find other accommodations. Unthinkable for a high end resort. In fact, I was told by Villagio that next time not to book through Expedia, despite the fact I had confirmed directly to the Villagio the week prior. So Expedia users beware. EXPEDIA was not much help either. I was very irate and sent Villagio an email , and later the next day, with a different representative, we were offered two rooms at their sister resort, Vintage House. However, at that point, it was the day before we were due to arrive in Yountville, too little too late! It seems like when they took the reservations, they were anxious to fill rooms in the hope that construction would be complete. But it is difficult to believe, that with one week to go , they were not aware that our room reservations were at risk. There was no mention of any potential issues.
Our firm recently hosted a number of seminars in Napa Valley and we found the Villagio/ Estate Resort in Yountville to be the perfect spot.
The location is both scenic and right in the heart of downtown Yountville which both our staff and guests enjoyed.
The Villagio staff was courteous, professional and attentive to every detail. Everybody commented on how nice the Olive Room that the resort rented to us was and the catering, AV support and customer service were top-notch.
Event Manager Melissa Diba was a joy to work with and took care of all our needs. I would highly recommend the Villagio/ Estate in Yountville for any meetings or events that you may be planning in the Napa Valley.
My favorite hotel in Yountville, its close to everything in Yountville, so you just walk and no need to drive to your favorite restaurants. The delicious breakfast is what I also look forward to every day, and if your lucky, wine tasting in the afternoon. I always recommend Villagio to all my friends.
We came from SF for a spa getaway and found the spa to be relaxing and the services were all pretty good. They have a co-ed area so you can hang with your significant other in these areas or you can retreat to the larger female and male relaxation rooms before your service. We stayed 2 nights and the room was clean and well-appointed. It did have some signs of wear but overall, we enjoyed our visit and would return
