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. When you need to cool off between wine tastings, luckily the valley is home to some of the most luxurious hotel pools around. Here are seven Napa Valley hotel pools that we love, whether you’re looking to lounge poolside in a cabana or float in healing thermal waters right outside your room.
A Countryside Retreat
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.

An Adult Sanctuary
Hidden away within the grapevines of St. Helena, Alila Napa Valley offers guests a quiet pool from which to enjoy some pre- and post-wine tasting R&R. Sip world-class wine in a private cabana or simply lounge the days away poolside at this adults-only retreat. Not staying overnight? Alila Spa guests are also welcome to indulge in a dip after treatments, which is always a nice way to end a blissful spa day.

A sun-drenched rooftop pool is the perfect place to savor the calming atmosphere of Bardessono, a LEED Platinum-certified hotel known for its sleek contemporary architecture and commitment to green initiatives. Take in views of Yountville as you sink into your lounge chair, cocktail in hand, and let all your worries fade away.
6526 Yount Street, Yountville, CA 94599, (707) 204-6099
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.

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.
1006 Washington Street, Calistoga, CA 94515, (707) 942-6269
Solage, An Auberge Resort & Spa
Flanked by palm trees and chaise lounges, the sprawling 130-foot pool at Solage epitomizes Wine Country chic. It’s a great place to soak up the California sun, but when you want to take advantage of the area’s geothermal waters, head to The Bathhouse, where mineral-rich waters are sure to soothe your troubles away.

A Hillside Oasis
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.
