Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley Readies for Its Close-Up

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley is now confirming reservations. Representing Napa Valley’s first and only resort set within a working winery, the new and stunning hospitality option is located in the historic, charming town of Calistoga, tucked into the base of Mount Saint Helena at the top of Napa Valley and surrounded by hundreds of acres of vineyards. 

The resort’s sanctuary-like accommodations include 85 spacious rooms, suites and villas boasting breath-taking views, fireplaces, private terraces, and design by one of the world’s most celebrated interior designers, Napa-based Erin Martin, in conjunction with Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA). This includes The Estate Villa, a nearly 3,400-square-foot (315 square metres) free-standing building nestled at the edge of the on-site vineyard, which features indoor-outdoor living and dining, a private garden, and a swimming pool.

“Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley marks a significant milestone for our brand as we expand our California collection with the introduction of the first Four Seasons resort within a working winery, offering an array of opportunities to elevate the guest experience through immersive programming,” says Vince Parrotta, President, Hotel Operations – Americas West, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Offering authentic, exceptional experiences that reflect the destinations in which we operate is a priority for our brand and for our guests.”

General Manager Mehdi Eftekari adds: “This is an exciting moment for our Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley family, as we open up reservations and begin planning guest visits. The property proudly delivers an authentic luxury retreat without pretence, bringing a distinctive, laidback wine country ethos and style of hospitality that can only be found in the illustrious Napa Valley. Scenic vineyard views, exceptional wine and cuisine, holistic wellness, high design, immersive experiences, and so much more await guests at this ultimate wine country oasis.”

Throughout the property, couples, families, friends, and solo travelers alike will enjoy a vast array of services and experiences, including two outdoor swimming pools nestled amid the vineyard, the fully supervised Kids for All Seasons program, a regulation bocce ball court, and state-of-the-art fitness facilities complete with vineyard views, Technogym equipment, and programming. Spa Talisa boasts eight treatment rooms for an array of intuitive and therapeutic practices, as well as a variety of al fresco experiences, including private patios with steam decks used for the locally-inspired steam experience – an authentic Calistoga ritual. The curated menu of treatments and services at Spa Talisa includes product collections by Napa-based skincare brand LIV + GRACE SKINCARE, as well as the 100 percent nontoxic molecular skincare system Seed to Skin, founded in Tuscany, Italy. 

Led by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Erik Anderson, TRUSS Restaurant + Bar will feature a farm-fresh a la carte menu, an elevated yet laidback indoor-outdoor environment, and sweeping views of the Calistoga vineyards and Palisades Mountains. The restaurant brims with star talent who are working closely alongside Chef Anderson to bring the distinctive vision for TRUSS to life, including Chef de Cuisine Craig Wilmer, Pastry Chef Josh Gaulin, and Sommelier Morgan Gray. Shaun Acosta, Executive Resort Chef, will oversee the open-air Campo Poolside, located between the Resort’s two pools overlooking the vineyards, serving Cal-Mexican fare and seasonal poolside cuisine.  

On site, Elusa Winery and its 4.7-acre (nearly 2 hectare) vineyard are protected by the Palisades Mountains and oak-covered hills. The hand-farmed vineyard celebrates the unique terroir of the Calistoga American Viticultural Area (AVA), home to some of the oldest estates in wine country. The vineyard and winery are operated by acclaimed Napa Valley winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.
