Bardessono raises the bar in Napa


Opulent luxury and quality guest service are the name of the game for Bardessono Hotel, Spa, and Restaurant in Napa Valley. One of only two LEED Platinum Certified hotels in the  United States, Bardessono offers guest rooms with private facilities, delectable, locally foraged dishes, and stunning views of the Valley’s surrounding wineries, from which the wine list is procured.

Bardessono’s guest rooms combine the splendor of a large hotel suite with the soothing bliss of spa. All rooms feature a large “champagne bath tub,” outdoor patio space, separate living and sleeping areas, High-Definitions televisions, and commissioned art work. The king-sized beds are dressed in the softest organic cotton from California while the bathroom have In Fiore bath products made in San Francisco. Every room is decorated in bright, earthen tones of dark woods, light yellow, and touches of green plants and flowers. Of course, a fireplace crackles in the room and a stay at Bardessono includes their signature Spa Butler service which delivers spa treatments to your room.

While spa services can certainly be enjoyed in the privacy and comfort of one’s own room, many of the spa’s amenities can only be enjoyed at Bardessono’s spa itself. Bardessono offers services unique to the region, such as a vinotherapy massage, which takes advantage of the anti-aging properties Chardonnay Grapeseed Oil. The Mom-To-Be Massage helps pregnant women increase their glow with a massage designed to get their lymph and blood system circulation flowing. The spa also has facials designed around a man’s skin and non-surgical face lifts. You’ll certainly leave Napa looking truly relaxed and rested (and that’s not code for “botoxed” and “lifted!”)

Bardessono’s restaurant is the perfect companion to a day filled with arduous relaxation. The restaurant features products from local growers and producers, farmers markets, and from the hotels’ own culinary gardens. The lunch menu features many American specialties like a burger made with locally grown natural beef and hand-picked vegetables from the garden. For dinner, one might dine upon a salmon from Monterey Bay or a pork chop from the neighborhood. The wine list is, of course, extensive and highlights organic growers from around the world and around the Valley, many of them are also sustainable and biodynamic vintners, so drink your conscience away!

Bardessono is about an hour and a half drive from San Francisco (or the hotel will arrange for a private jet from Los Angeles). Bardessono will arrange both wine tours as well as bike tours. Contact Bardessono at (707) 204 6000 or at for reservations on information.
