Ah… The Meritage Resort and Spa. For those looking to Escape to Napa, this is one we’re keen to check out. An idyllic Napa Valley hotel and resort, it’s set against rolling hills with its own private vineyards (’cause, oftentimes, when we slurp wine, we like to do it from the confines of our own exclusive vineyard). A destination unto itself with Tuscan inspired rooms and luxury suites, we’re also keen on it’s seasonal farm-to-table cuisine in their Siena restaurant and wine tasting in the Estate Cave featuring Trinitas Cellars. Siena’s Napa Terroir-influenced menu sources the best local, seasonal meats, fish and produce designed by an award-winning executive chef to compliment area wines. Entrees also start at a reasonable $12. From appetizers to savory desserts Siena has something for every palate, but some of favorite entrees include Seared Sea Bass with Sautéed Rock Shrimp; and Cinnamon and Star Anise Scented Kobe Beef Short Ribs.
If that’s not slurpalicious enough, you can regain a healthful balance with curative treatments at Spa Terra – a lavish underground spa with steam grottos, soaking pools, treatment alcoves and tranquil walls of water. How cool is that? Spa Terra’s signature 100-minute package? Solo Vino, an exfoliating grape seed scrub, followed by an invigorating jet shower rinse and a decadent body wrap with wine cave mud. A 50-minute Terra Massage ends this Napa favorite! Massages and treatments start at $65. Then, you can unwind at Crush Ultra Lounge, which offers six swanky bowling lanes, a pool table, fireplace and more. The resort also claims the most comprehensive event and meeting space in wine country – for those looking for the most romantic Napa wedding in town or an ideal corporate retreat.
Looks like I’ll either have to convince my honey to take me on a romantic wine country trip or convince my company that Napa is the perfect place for a little corporate bonding. Over wine or in a grotto, of course.
Rates from around $260/night
