The Spa at the Estate Yountville recently underwent the largest renovation in the Napa Valley area, including a rebranding of the entire 22-acre property. 

"We wanted to completely reimagine the idea of luxury in Yountville and provide our guests with an experience unlike any other in the area," says Terry Prager, executive director of spa & wellness. "Our private suites have been thoughtfully designed with luxury in mind featuring indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a relaxing lounge area, steam showers, sauna and outdoor soaking baths. Touches such as these ensure our guests can relax in a luxurious and serene environment."

The Estate Yountville offers a variety of signature experiences, some of which can be customized for groups. Rosé All Day, one of the newest packages, provides guests a 50-minute Inner Calm Massage with Restorative Rose essential oil, a 50-minute Youthful Boost Facial, along with a complimentary Knesko Rose Gold eye mask and a glass of chilled Silver Trident Rosé served with fresh strawberries.

When your group isn't enjoying Rosé All Day, team-building retreats are also available. "The redesign of the spa has allowed for a reception area that has doubled in height, creating space for an abundance of light and volume. Your group will feel welcomed the minute you enter the spa," Prager says. "If groups are planning a stay over several days, we also offer an in-room self-care program for guest to soak in the pleasures of wellness right in their room. Offerings include ESPA’s Restorative In-Room Diffuser along with a full-size ESPA Restorative Bath Oil, EPSA’s Invigorating Shower Gel, Salt & Oil, and more!"

With so many offerings, Prager says The Suites Experiences are the most popular. They allow guests to enjoy serene private suites with their own showers and bath tubs. The most popular time to visit is Harvest Season: August through October.

"This is the time when guests can get a glimpse at how some of their favorite wines are made and a time when they have spectacular weather to enjoy. We offer many on-site experiences including Wellness: Yoga at the Estate where guest can enjoy an instructor-led session every Friday and Saturday morning and Croquet on the Lawn for guests to play a casual game of croquet or corn hole while enjoying a glass of Frosé on Sundays. It’s best to book groups as far in advance as possible," Prager says.

The U.S. Travel Association has called the current moment the “Great Travel Depression,” in light of the economic effects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
