A location in the heart of Napa Valley would seem to be enough to land a spot on our list, but our No. 1 pick – Meadowood Napa Valley – boasts more than scenery. Try a Tree Top Room flooded in CA sunshine through wraparound windows, a pool, croquet, golf, trails, tennis and of course, Meadowood Spa.
What better way to experience Napa Valley than with a Meadowood picnic for two in a vineyard? St. Clement Vineyards, to be exact, with California artisan cheeses and breads and croissant club sandwiches with avocado, to be precise. There is another way, however, to enjoy the Cali countryside that just may rival that heaven-in-a-basket feast. We developed a schoolgirl fancy for the Cabernet Crush. Warm cabernet grape seed polish is applied followed by a light brush massage. Aromatic grape seed oil replenishes Vitamins A, C and E and leaves your skin glowing. As the kids return to school, give yourself the perfect autumn treat with the Meadowood Harvest Wrap. A dry brush exfoliation is followed by hot towel compresses and tea tree exfoliation. While you are wrapped in a hydrating masque, your scalp and face are massaged.

Solage Calistoga focuses on maintaining healthy and thoughtful balance. This care for wellbeing is evident in the architecture. High beamed ceilings of a warm wood color and natural stone reflect the 22 acres and the Mayacamas and Palisades Mountains surrounding Solage. And of course, the center for renewal of the body, mind and spirit is the Spa Solage. The signature Mudslide Experience is not a slightly altered Slip N’ Slide from your childhood front yard – it’s a three-step treatment for complete rejuvenation. The first step is, naturally, The Mud. This mineral-rich California clay is mixed with volcanic ash and a blend of essential oils. Rest in the heated mud lounge until step two: The Waters. Soak in an oversized tub full of geothermal mineral water from Solage’s own spring. Finally, The Rest, which entails closing your eyes and relaxing in a vibration chair.
Solage encourages the combination of wellbeing and adventure by equipping each room with a pair of cruiser bicycles to explore the Napa Valley countryside.
