Napa Valley’s resort scene keeps getting better and better, with new properties debuting, and renovations to longtime favorite retreats. Take a look at these tidbits:
Check out the newly renovated adult pool area, in a magnificent setting bordering Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards amid 157-acres of ancient oaks, graceful hills, a stream and private lake. The chic space also features a new pool menu from chef Bryan Moscatello, bringing bites like a chilled rice noodle bowl brimming with hot smoked salmon, pickled shiitake mushrooms, green onion, sesame, cashew and lemon grass; or fish tacos with spicy pickled onions, avocado, cilantro, poblano cream and cabbage. // calistogaranch.com.
Napa Valley Marriott Hotel & Spa
The 275 guest rooms and suites have been elegantly redesigned, for warm greys and earth tones accented with soft grape hues like Cabernet. Sliding wooden barn doors with exposed hardware now separate the baths, finished in crisp white tile and gray granite. Too, a new 100 x 30 square foot resort-style swimming pool and courtyard welcomes events, weddings and private parties. // napavalleymarriott.com.
The Carneros Inn
Freshened up with a $6.5 million renovation last year, upgrades include the wedding and events venue, family pool, and guest reception area. The Arbor, the property’s main outdoor wedding and events venue, for example, received a $1 million renovation including a planted trellis, an opulent water feature, lavish exterior landscaping, and drought tolerant and high heel-friendly turf. // carnerosresort.com.
Silverado Resort and Spa
The post retreat is nearing the grand opening of its Mansion Gardens, spanning 30,000 square feet of outdoor space with vineyard views, a stage and a 5,000 square foot pavilion. // silveradoresort.com.

Finally, the $20 million renovation and expansion is complete. The 17-acre property now features 75 new Mission Revival bungalows and lodge rooms with views of the reflection pond, river, palms or the active geyser. // indianspringscalistoga.com.
A sister property to Las Alcobas in Mexico City, the luxury property is set to open next month. The resort features 68 guest rooms and suites with terraces and outdoor fireplaces, the Acacia House by Chris Cosentino restaurant, a 3,500 square foot spa, an outdoor swimming pool, and meeting and event facilities. Most guestrooms include views of Beringer Estate or vineyards. // lasalcobasnapavalley.com.
