Sustainable, luxurious heaven in Napa Valley!
Combining luxury with environmental ethics, Bardessono located on the Bardessono family farmstead in downtown Yountville opened in February 2009. Owned and developed by Phil Sherburne, a former Seattle city planner turned conscientious developer, Sherburne utilized his philosophy – “limits, creativity, and an environmental consciousness are what shape good design”- to shape and develop Bardessono. One of only three hotels in the world to be LEED platinum certified, Bardessono partners with the non-profit organization Land Trust of Napa County.
Eco-minded baby boomers and their families can enjoy 1,665 square feet of indoor space and over 4,000 square feet of outdoor space at the 62-room luxury, sustainable hotel, spa and restaurant. Intimate in scale, each guest room is layered with details. Everything from heating and cooling systems, lighting, water use, native landscapes, carbon fiber bicycles, on-site producing gardens, and artisan-crafted coffee has been taken into account. The Spa is designed to meet the needs of the seasons and we love the Vinotherapie Massage where your skin absorbs the anti-aging properties of organic Chardonnay Grape Seed Oil. The Yountville Signature will melt away tension while nourishing your skin and spirit. The Spa Butler Program creates a private spa experience in the luxury of your suite with your personal Spa Butler preparing your pre-treatment ritual. Everyone will want a Spa Butler to take home.
Bardessono’s restaurant inspired by the Napa Valley draws from local growers, farmer’s markets and the restaurant’s own on- and off-site culinary gardens. The lounge features artisanal spirits highlighting renowned small producers from around the world and organic, sustainable, Biodynamic vintners.
We were fortunate to stay shortly after their opening and found the rooftop pool to be one of the highlights. The private cabanas offer the perfect afternoon napping spot, and a splash in the pool will invigorate you into being able to endure countless more hours of wine tasting! Be sure to borrow a bike, we used the tandem, and cruise the town of Yountville. Luxury at its best!
