We know how much you love Meadowood Napa Valley because we do too! If you’re like us, you’ve been eagerly waiting for their new spa to open. Your wait (and ours) is almost over. The luxurious all-suite Meadowood Spa, led by Director of Spa & Wellness Michael Conte, is scheduled to open on Nov. 2 for guests and members only. This is reason enough for you to book a getaway to Meadowood, or become a member.
The 14,000-square-foot spa was designed by famed architect Howard Backen and his team at Backen, Gillam & Kroeger Architects, led by David Macneill and interior designer, Leslie Hemmings. The style of architecture reflects and respects the landscape: simple, rustic-modern structures with a strong connection to beyond the building itself, with natural elements flowing throughout. The color palette includes warm greys and browns, deep muted olive green, rustic black and natural flax textured linen.
Paying respect to its natural surroundings of Meadowood, a majestic oak tree is preserved and celebrated at the Spa’s entrance with an amazing hand-forged circular iron fence guarding its perimeter and flanked on both sides by two boutiques.
What’s so haute about this spa is the privacy that you’ll enjoy. Each of the eight suites (six singles and two couples) includes a private bathroom and steam shower, and offers an inviting, built-in seating lounge area filled with comfortable cushions and pillows situated in front of large sliding windows that open out to forested views, heightening the sense of complete relaxation.
The unique, all-suite concept creates an elevated spa experience to give you a true sense of retreat and privacy. Your visit will begin with an in-depth conversation with a Spa Therapist in the privacy of your treatment suite to determine a curated treatment plan for you. The suite experience will begin with a soothing signature tea and include a pre-treatment experience (aromatherapy steam shower, dry body brushing or foot bath), followed by the treatment plan created with the therapist concluding with a post-treatment organic elixir. The space is designed to perform every treatment and includes all amenities needed so you won’t have to worry about relocating or moving during your spa day unless you choose to use the relaxation gardens, which we highly suggest.
There are two relaxation gardens, one for women and one for men. Each features sitting areas, steam room and sauna and mineral soaking pool. These areas are open for Spa guests pre- or post-treatment.
The Meadowood Spa is working with a curated selection of luxury lines with strong senses of place and high efficacy, including Caudalie, a French luxury beauty brand, Luzern Laboratories, sourcing from Switzerland and manufacturing in the USA, HydraFacial MD® , Glycelene, a luxury organic and vegan line based in California, and Aromatherapy Associates.
Spa Menu & Pricing
The Spa menu is designed to elevate the entire spa experience and highlight the spa suites. The Essential Journey is the starting point for all treatments: this 90-minute experience is a 60-minute massage, facial or body treatment with a wellness sojourn, which includes a wellness dialogue with your treatment provider and pre-treatment experience. Six spa packages have also been created, all with a strong sense of place celebrating the Napa Valley including: From the Vines, a vino-based massage and facial; From the Garden, a treatment that will change ingredients seasonally; From the Earth, a black walnut scrub and hot stone massage; and The Air We Breathe, which focuses on recovery through a detoxifying mud wrap, invigorating leg scrub and Hydrafacial. And for the ultimate spa experience, The Meadowood Curated Collection offers a five- and a half-hour experience with a customized scrub, wrap, facial, massage and specialty therapy. All Spa packages include lunch and private suite time for relaxation. Services begin at $225 and packages range from $595-$1,235.
Spa Culinary Menu
Meadowood Grill Chef Victoria Acosta has designed an exquisite culinary menu, offering delectable and healthy options for you to enjoy in your suites or in the relaxation gardens in the Spa. Fruits house-dried from the Meadowood garden, nuts, grains; elixirs such as carrot with ginger, lime and coriander round out a selection of dishes celebrating the elements, mirroring the Spa’s Treatment Menu: Vine, Earth, Air and Field. Culinary offerings include Heirloom Tomatoes with dandelion pesto, eggplant, couscous and cumin (Vine); Sweet Potato with Brussels sprouts, coconut and curry (Earth); Lemon Thyme with Mary’s Chicken, bok choy and brown rice (Air); Cress, Romaine & Kale with dungeness crab, meyer lemon and ginseng (Field)…to name just a few.
