Where to Have it All
When you’d prefer to plant yourself in one location versus driving around to different spots, yet still have access to delicious food, wine, and luxurious amenities, these resorts have all you need for a perfect Napa Valley retreat.
For the all-in-one experience, check out the offerings at Carneros Resort & Spa. Book a Courtyard Home for the whole family, or a Cottage with a view of the vineyard and a private outdoor patio. Or, if you’re traveling with several in your party, the Harvest Suite is two individual cottages with an adjoining patio, deck, and firepit. It doesn’t feel so much a hotel experience as it does a private estate stay. Treat yourself to a massage or manicure in the guest-only spa or take a dip in one of two pools, then soak in the sweeping views of this modern rustic estate. Getting hungry? No need to leave the premises. Save yourself an extra trip out by dining at one of the restaurants at the resort. The main restaurant, FARM Restaurant + Bar, is a delight, offering seasonal food, an inviting ambiance, and great service, while Boon Fly Cafe, the Carneros Resort’s more casual all-day restaurant, provides a lively and vibrant atmosphere for savoring mouthwatering cuisine during breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

When we say that the Meritage Resort truly has it all, we’re not teasing. You won’t even have to step foot off the property to experience the best that Napa has to offer. Inspired by the rolling hills and golden light of Tuscany, The Meritage Resort and Spa has 322 guestrooms, suites, and luxury retreats to choose from. Vino-seekers will no doubt want to head out to Napa Valley’s acclaimed wineries—just a short distance away—but for those days when you can’t be bothered, the nine on-site tasting rooms will do just fine. Fuel up for your wine tasting endeavors at one of three restaurants, such as Olive & Hay, noted for its farm-to-table, Italian fare. But the amenities don’t stop there. Try for a strike at their bowling lanes, schedule some R&R at the underground Spa Terra, soak in the hot tub with views of the vineyards in the distance, or go on an adventure, exploring the property’s private, nine-acre vineyard with walking trails that weave through the grapes.
