When most people think of Napa Valley they envision rolling vine-covered hills, tastings at their favorite wineries and Michelin-starred farm-to-table cuisine. But this list is not complete without a nod to Wine Country’s spa getaways. Whether you opt for a spa day or turn it into an overnight stay, there are a bevy of top-notch choices. We’ve chosen a handful of Napa’s best — now it is down to you to decide where to indulge first.
The Meritage Resort and Spa stands out among other resorts with its Tuscan-inspired decor and rustic charm. Located in an underground Estate Cave, Spa Terra is the quintessential Wine Country experience. With long, open halls, curved entryways and a relaxation room that could easily double as a tasting room, you truly feel immersed in your surroundings. And a point to note, the spa offers 12 treatment rooms, so it is great for group experiences as well as solo getaways.
Don’t miss: Wellness classes. Book a weekend appointment and opt for a midmorning treatment so you can try one of the Pilates barre or yoga classes or even a guided vineyard hike beforehand.
What to book: The Aromatherapy Journey is ideal for anyone who likes a scent-guided experience. Pre-treatment you will join your therapist at the Tara Well Bar to blend your custom scent together. Your therapist will then use the oil to massage you into a state of bliss. And the best part? You get to take the remaining oil home to transport you back to the self-care experience whenever you need it most.Read more
