Our favourite rooms
The Deluxe Valley View rooms do exactly as they promise, with wall-to-wall panoramas over the Napa vineyards. For a superpowered soak go for a Private Garden Suite, which has a secluded bath tub among fragrant shrubs in the courtyard.
Beach-inspired La Plage is the kind of pool area that makes you hurry back after a day of activities (or never leave in the first place). Cocktails, wines and poolside snacks are on hand all day long, and the fleet of double cabanas forms its very own Napper Valley.
The guests-only Auberge Spa has temperate pools overlooking the valley and a Japanese-style yoga pavilion set in a secluded garden. It’s best enjoyed as a pair, with signature couples’ treatments including Meritage (full-body exfoliation and an aromatherapy bath for two) and Joie d’Amour (head-to-toe massage, followed by fireside sparkling wine and a soak in the hot tub).
A wine-tasting notes journal – with all that sampling, you’ll need a reminder of your favourite tipples when it comes to ordering them back home.
One Deluxe Garden Room and a Deluxe Valley View Suite are wheelchair accessible, as are the common areas, including the pool and spa.
Over-16s only – it’s a grown-up kind of getaway.
The restaurant kitchen uses bounty from local farms in dishes, and all the bath products are eco friendly. The hotel supports environmental causes by donating $4 from your booking, matched by another $4 from their own coffers. Currently, this money goes to the Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition, which maintains a 47-mile hiking and biking network.
