Dining & Gourmet
As well as housing its own exquisite eatery - Lucy's Restaurant, serving a menu of fresh, innovative, garden-inspire cuisine - Bardessono is literally steps away from some of the finest dining in California (and beyond). A short stroll takes you to The French Laundry restaurant; recently awarded the Michelin Guide San Francisco's highest rating of three stars for the sixth consecutive year, this makes Thomas Keller the only American chef with two Michelin restaurants of three stars each. Also nearby is the highly-decorated, Italian Bottega restaurant - featuring in Forbes' Top 10 and headed by Emmy-winning, celebrity Chef, Michael Chiarello.
Truly immerse yourself in the Napa Valley lifestyle during your unforgettable stay at Bardessono. Sample the region's exquisite and world-renowned wine in a nearby vineyard's elegant tasting room, before strolling through the vines and exploring the cellars at your leisure. For a unique wine experience, join artist, Ann Rea, as she captures the scenery of the picturesque vineyards in oil on canvas. Back at the hotel, take an informative garden tour with the world-class culinary team, spotting - and sampling - the glorious home-grown herbs and produce that create the delicious cuisine in Lucy's Restaurant.
Nestled in the heart of enchanting Napa Valley, Bardessono is unrivalled in seclusion and romance. After a leisurely morning strolling hand-in-hand through the vineyards, cycling through the valley, or exploring Napa's beguiling art galleries, get closer with an indulgent couple's spa experience from the comfort of your suite; 'Relationship Appreciation' involves an expert therapist teaching you how to give each other a custom massage, whilst 'Couples Connect' is a sensual ritual using exquisite oils, that is designed for reconnection. Marvel at the spectacular Californian sunset over a bottle of wine, before an exceptional, seasonal meal at a candlelit table for two in Lucy's Restaurant.
Bardessono's spa suites, with their massage tables tucked away in cabinets and enormous jetted baths, (Steam Spa Suites also come with a steam shower) mean you never have to leave your room to enjoy a day at the spa. Treatments are seasonally based, and include a wide range of massages, wraps, polishes, soaks and rituals as well as men-only and couples treatments. Opt for the Vinotherapy Massage - in-keeping with the essence of the Napa Valley region it harnesses the properties of organic Chardonnay Grape Seed Oil, for an anti-ageing effect on the skin. If you do, however. venture to the small but rather lovely spa you'll find it heated and cooled by an underground geothermal system and featuring an infrared sauna.
At the hotel’s shop you can purchase a selection of goods created by artisans from around the world, including hand loomed baby alpaca throw blankets from Peru, jewellery, candles, leather goods, hand-sewn bags and dolls from recycled Japanese Indigo dyed cloth, printed cloths, hand-made papers, glassware, mineral makeup and olive oil.
