Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley
The Napa Valley is known for its hospitality offerings, which include luxury wines (natch), gourmet cuisine and sumptuous accommodations. With the opening of the announcement Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, visitors to the Northern California green enclave can now find all of these attributes in one beautiful place.
Located at the northern end of the valley in the charming Calistoga, where a backward atmosphere emits a tenor “Napa as it was before”, this new Four Seasons offers a great reason to unpack and just stay: the best to rest , relax, and rejuvenate. Everything you may require and wish on a visit to the wine country can be found on the property, from a wine tasting on site Celler i Vinya Elusa, in the spa treatments at the Talisa Spa, in the best seasonal cuisine at the TRUSS Restaurant + Bar.

Overlooking the Palisades Mountains and neighboring vineyards, the resort is intimate, but its seemingly secluded location makes it feel expansive. 85 rooms and suites surround Elusa’s organic vineyards, from which acclaimed winemakers Thomas Rivers Brown and Jonathan Walden create elegant and delicious varieties that can be tasted at the winery’s elegant tasting sites or at TRUSS. Due to Brown’s hard work over the last few years in anticipation of the opening of the complex and the winery, Elusa is fortunate to debut with a library of wines dating back almost a decade. (If you get a chance to taste the 2012 Elusa Cabernet Sauvignon, skip it.) The very limited amount of Elusa signature wines can also be delivered to your room. Guests of the resort are also invited to explore the winemaking process, from harvesting and grading, to blending and aging, with hands-on demonstrations and opportunities to get to know winemakers.

Hirsch Bedner Associates executed the design of the rooms and suites; the first level ones have an atmosphere similar to a cellar of dark and sensual tones and little lighting, with large and bright bathrooms with bathtubs. The upstairs rooms are upside down: a bright white design with black tiled bathrooms. All rooms have fireplaces, private and furnished terraces, fully equipped mini-bars and the heavenly Four Seasons bed. Regardless of the location of the world, a Four Seasons bed guarantees a decadent sleep experience.
