World-class wine and delectable cuisine aside, there’s much to love about a getaway to Napa Valley — especially during summer and early fall when warm weather and sunshine are aplenty. Luckily, when you need to cool off between wine tastings, the valley is home to some of the most luxurious hotel pools around. Here are eight Napa Valley hotel pools — currently open — that we love, whether you’re looking to lounge poolside in a cabana or float in healing thermal waters right outside your room.

COVID-19 Note: Though many hotel pools throughout Napa Valley are open to guests, including the ones on this list, please check with each hotel directly to confirm pool hours, cabana availability, and general guidelines as certain amenities may be limited or unavailable.

When you check into the picturesque Carneros Resort and Spa, you’ll have not one but two pools to lounge beside during your stay. Enjoy panoramic views of farmland and grapevines at the serene adults-only pool, where private cabanas come complete with personalized service and extras like sparkling wine and appetizers. Or, make a day of it at the palm tree lined pool near the fitness center, a family-friendly outdoor swimming pool fit for an afternoon of fun.

Take in views of Yountville as you sink into your lounge chair, cocktail in hand, and let all your worries fade away.

Soak up the sun from The Meritage Resort’s heated pool, an adults-only pool with a hot tub and seasonal poolside service. Set against a backdrop of the resort’s hillside vineyard and underground spa cave, the pool makes it easy to embrace those vacation vibes year-round. Heading to the spa without a stay? The Meritage sometimes allows pool access for spa guests, based on availability.

A Hillside Oasis

6380 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558, (707) 944-0646

Nestled in the hills above Napa’s Silverado Trail, Poetry Inn is an intimate oasis offering spectacular views of the Napa Valley — and yes, even the outdoor pool showcases incredible vistas. Heated April through November, the pool is a peaceful place to spend a day in Wine Country, whether reading a book on a chaise lounge, catnapping in the poolside hammock, or sipping wine as the sun goes down. We have a feeling you’ll be embracing the slower pace of Napa Valley in no time.

Sprawling Sophistication

Flanked by palm trees and chaise lounges, the sprawling 130-foot pool at Solage epitomizes Wine Country chic. There’s no better place to soak up the California sun, but when you want to take advantage of the area’s geothermal springs, head to the resort’s Bathhouse, where mineral-rich waters will surely sooth your troubles away.

In case the name doesn’t give it away, the main draw of this Calistoga getaway is its accessibility to hot springs. The hotel features four open-air geothermal mineral pools, including a soaking pool, lap pool, whirlpool, and kid-friendly wading pool, with water temperatures that range between 80 degrees and 104 degrees. Say hello to utter relaxation.

The Cabana Life

Napa’s Vista Collina Resort has become known for its diverse amenities, but certainly one of its most popular attractions is the expansive pool featuring 10 luxury cabanas (available for full-day rentals). Stocked with flat screen TVs, lounge chairs, and mini refrigerators, plus a food and beverage credit for four guests, these airy poolside cabanas are a great place for hotel guests to enjoy a leisurely afternoon in Napa.

Natural Surroundings

Calistoga Ranch

Tucked into a private canyon, Calistoga Ranch is a hidden oasis outside of Calistoga, and its sleek pool has just what you need to kiss the hustle and bustle of city life goodbye. You’ll adore basking in the beauty of the natural surroundings at the main pool, but if the kids are in tow, you won’t want to miss hitting the large splash pool for a day of family fun.
