Napa Valley Hotel – Bardessono
When planning a trip to Napa Valley, there are many things to take into consideration like where to wine taste, where to eat, what to pack and one of the most important, where to sleep. One Napa Valley Hotel that will make it hard to get out of bed and explore wine country is Bardessono.
Peter and I had the pleasure of staying at Bardessono Hotel and Spa during our Napa trip in January. This masterpiece of a hotel has all the amenities you could want; it’s a contemporary luxury that is sure to leave you smiling from ear to ear.
Bardessono Hotel offers complimentary bicycles for touring the town, turndown service, valet parking, spa, fitness deck, rooftop pool and on on-site restaurant.
While in Bardessono, Peter and I stayed in the King Steam Spa-Suite. This suite has it all, including a huge bathroom! To give you a better picture of what I mean by a huge bathroom the bathroom is 200 square feet and was designed to double as a private spa. Yes, if you want a private massage in your room there is a massage table and all. The bathroom also has a soaking tub, dual shower-steam room, double vanity, and an outdoor shower!
This suite also has a private courtyard, fireplace, and living space.
After a long day of wine tasting or even before a day of adventures take advantage of the bath tub and draw yourself a bubble bath! As you can see from the photos, that’s what I did.
The relaxing vibe and tranquility are not only experienced in your suite but throughout the property. With fountain features and contemporary environmental design, this Napa Valley hotel considered every detail.
When you want a luxurious escape, Bardessono is the perfect Napa Valley hotel!
Bardessono is located in the heart of Yountville, California. Yountville is a destination on its own with its quaint charm, fabulous restaurants, and easily accessible wineries. If you’re up for it, take one of Bardessono’s complimentary bikes out to explore the town.
This cute little place has incredibly friendly people with extremely courteous staff wherever you go. With a mix of locals and tourists, Yountville is one of my favorite towns in Napa Valley.
There is not a shortage of restaurants in Yountville. You can drive or walk to breakfast, lunch and dinner when staying in Bardessono.
One morning, Peter took the three-minute walk to Bouchon Bakery for morning pastries and coffee. Yes, it’s only a three-minute walk, I wasn’t exaggerating when I mentioned that everything is walking distance.
We also had a delicious dinner at Lucy Restaurant, located on the property at Bardessono.
In Yountville, there is the famous three Michelin star restaurant, The French Laundry. If you’re able to make a reservation and drop hundreds of dollars for a dinner, then this is a must. Another option is Bouchon, another restaurant by the famous chef Thomas Keller. Peter and I had dinner here one evening, we were in Napa during the winter, so we didn’t need a reservation.
These three locations were delicious, and I can’t recommend them enough, but if you’re in the mood for other types of cuisine, check out Bistro Jeanty, Redd, Bottega, Étoile, and Ciccio.
Perhaps the most well-known winery in Yountville is Domaine Chandon. Known for its breathtaking grounds and sparkling wine, this is a must visit. From Bardessono, this is a 20-minute walk so you might want to drive there or take a bicycle to truly take in the environment and the views.
In addition to Domaine Chandon, there is Ma(i)sonry, Priest Ranch, Cornerstone Cellars, Bell Wine Cellars, Hestan Vineyards and tons more depending how far out you want to explore.
Bardessono is a Napa Valley Hotel that is luxurious, tranquil and offers the perfect blend between contemporary design and Napa Valley charm.
