Why We Love This Hotel

  • AAA 4-Diamond resort on 28 acres of vineyards and gardens
  • Ranked on Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards in 2015 as one of the Top 30 Hotels in Northern California
  • Guestrooms have fireplaces, soaking tubs for two and a complimentary wine bar
  • Concierge can arrange midnight yoga classes and guided hikes


Nestled on 28 acres of vineyards and orchards among 300 rose bushes, the French country-style inn feels more like a private estate than a hotel. Visitors are welcomed with a glass of the vineyard’s wine before being ushered to one of just 57 guestrooms.

Fresh off renovations completed in spring 2015, each room has a stone fireplace, private deck overlooking the countryside, vaulted beamed ceilings, copper chandeliers and country-inspired décor in hues of chocolate and celadon. Furnished with reclaimed wood, heated bathroom floors and feather beds dressed in high-end linens, many rooms have French doors leading to patios with Jacuzzis while the higher floors have private decks. All accommodations include Nespresso coffeemakers, free Wi-Fi and wine bar, a butler’s pantry stocked with snacks and fruit, and bathtubs for two.

Lucia, the signature restaurant, serves a menu crafted with ingredients the on-site garden and produce from local farmers and fishermen. Guests have the option of dining indoors or alfresco on the porch. The property also has an outdoor pool with a bar and a spa with wine-inspired treatments like cabernet body mud musk. Activities like outdoor spinning, moonlight yoga classes and guided hikes can be booked through the concierge.

Located in a lush valley surrounded by Santa Lucia Range, the resort is between the Monterey peninsula and Big Sur coastline. Napa Valley is 160 north of Carmel.
