Green Luxury at Napa
February 18, 2009 by The Dove
Every element of this hotel, restaurant and spa is wrapped in an earth-friendly blanket of luxury. Secluded on five lush acres of gardens and vineyards, the 62-room hotel boasts a “green spa,” heated and cooled by an underground geothermal system, smart guestrooms in buildings crafted from hand milled, reclaimed wood and steel and 93-seat restaurant headed by Executive Chef Sean OToole, former group operations chef for Michael Mina. If approved, Bardessono would be the second U.S. hospitality entity to receive platinum certification and the first in California.
Bardessono suites are designed to double as a private spa, with each room equipped with air-jetted soaking tubs for two, massage tables hidden behind spa banquets and his and hers bathroom vanities. Garden level suites feature dual indoor shower-steam rooms as well as refreshing outdoor showers.
Cocooned in the privacy of your suite feel free to do nothing but stay and relax.
If a more traditional pampering experience is what you crave, the hotel’s own spa is must-visit. The extensive high-touch, high-tech skin care clinic features the latest technology for non-surgical face lifts as well as facial fitness program to re-educate and re-stimulate the muscles, elastin and collagen. Treatments are also available poolside.
Bardessonos spa programs are based on traditional healing modalities with seasonal offerings that are in harmony with the rhythms of the body and the earth.
The hotel is also in the running for LEED-Platinum certification.
