Carneros Resort & Spa
A recent $9 million renovation is more than enough of an excuse to go tuck into this hotel in Napa’s rural Carneros wine region. One of the valley’s most pastoral landscapes, the resort spans 27 acres of vineyards and fruit trees, and boasts picturesque views. Sophisticated, landscaped cottages with neutral color palettes are clustered into charming micro neighborhoods, each named after the property’s array of flora (juniper, fig, lavender). New heated tile flooring has been added, and each cottage comes with a soaking tub, outdoor showers, and spacious decks (tip: some suites have their own private hot tub). Plenty of on-site activities keep guests busy: a family-friendly pool, an adults-only pool on a hillside overlooking the vineyards, a spa, cruiser bikes, and bocce courts.
