If you’re looking for luxury in Napa Valley, the Solage Resort in Calistoga is just a mile outside town and literally right on the Silverado Trail. After a day wine tasting on the famous road, we pulled into the sprawling, tree-filled resort ready to park ourselves right by the pools (Yes, pools! They have 4 in total, including regular AND mineral pools!)
Type: Luxury Resort
IG Rating: 5/5 aesthetics
Good For: Couples, Romance, Splurges
For a luxury resort, the staff at the Solage has no air of snootiness to them, which makes it extremely easy to immediately feel welcomed. It’s a pet-friendly resort, so you may find a dog or two on your way to your room to pet, if you’re so inclined. But defiantly take advantage of the free complimentary glass of wine at check-in, the best way to start any wine country getaway.
When we checked into our room, which is one of about 89 bungalows on property, we immediately took a walk around the property. Each bungalow is tucked among oak trees and flower beds. The evening sun looks beautiful filtering through the trees and come dusk, we were treated to the best sunset before the stars came out.
Guests have access to the Solage Spa mineral pools so in the morning I walked over for a swim. We didn’t experience a spa treatment for ourselves but reviews say that the Solage Mudslide Treatment is legendary. The Solage Calistoga Spa is open to non-guests, so if you’re craving a spa day at a beautiful spa, this is your haven.
Fun Fact: The hot springs in Napa Valley’s town of Calistoga are world-famous. Unlike other natural hot springs you find in the United States, the hot springs mineral water at the spas and hotels in Calistoga California are all piped into pools.
We loved all the thoughtful details at the Solage, our favorite was the fridge stocked with complimentary drinks like milk, sparkling waters and club soda for cocktails.

We booked our stay on HotelTonight. Normally rooms are about $950 a night, but we scored a deal for just about $450. I highly recommend finding a deal if you are staying at the Solage. After a quick look, I just now found a room for $399 on Booking.com and Trip Advisor as well.
Though, you can usually earn resort credits if you book directly on the Solage site, so you can decide which is the best option to book at to save the most money.
NOTE: I do want to note that the A/C in our bungalow was broken and it took multiple tries and a few hours to fix it. The staff was very nice and prompt which was very appreciated, but it did really suck to have the inside of our room to be almost 80 degrees on such a hot summer day. We had to sit on our patio all evening because it was too hot inside. It was fixed in time for bed and our resort fee was waived as an apology, but it did put a damper on the start of our stay.
