Carneros Resort and Spa

If a storybook was written about a destination getaway, Carneros Resort and Spa would be the setting. Driving through the entrance of the spatial 28-acre estate stretched along the outskirts of Napa Valley is an initial hint that nothing about what awaits beyond the main gate will be ordinary. 

The Meeting Hall oozes understated opulence thanks to a contemporary rustic aesthetic and the complimentary wine pour guests are treated to at check-in. The feeling of grandeur only intensifies while walking up the steps to a modern cottage or mini villa. Every accommodation option available is a full private residence, complete with a secluded backyard. The latter in particular is styled on par with an Architectural Digest photoshoot—the combined effect of the soaking tub, fire pit, heat lamp, outdoor shower and lush foliage is like an IRL secret garden for adults.

When ready to mingle, take a leisurely stroll to one of the onsite restaurants. FARM is a large, outdoor dining room with live music four days a week. It also has a rotating menu that showcases locally-sourced ingredients—some of which are even grown in the culinary gardens sprawled throughout Carneros Resort. And Hilltop Dining Room sits upon the highest terrain of the property, with eye-catching views only rivaled in the morning by the sumptuous breakfast buffet served daily.

This area of the resort is also where the day spa and adults-only pool are located. The pool is flanked by palatial ottomans and shaded cabanas, plus has full bar service available through the early evening. If lingering poolside until sunset with a bevvy in hand is on the day’s agenda, claim a cozy spot to watch it from the hot tub at the lower edge of the hill’s crest.

Another perk is the lack of need to venture elsewhere to replenish refreshments during the duration of any stay. MARKET is stocked with an assortment of snacks and plenty of accoutrements like fresh bread and gourmet cheeses for a DIY charcuterie board. Pair a made-to-order sandwich with a bottle of vino picked up from POST right next door—a mini wine boutique that offers wine tastings as well as an exclusive collection of bottles from award-winning vineyards in the region such as Artesa, Domaine Carneros, Hyde and Truchard.

For all these amenities and more, celebs like Kardashian hairstylist Jen Atkin and former The Bachelor star Colton Underwood get married, shoot content and vacation at Carneros Resort and Spa. So be ready to revel in the VIP lifestyle upon arrival.
