Napa Valley Becomes Eco-Travel Destination with February Opening of the Bardessono


Driven by the desire to wrap everything in an earth-friendly blanket of luxury, every element of this LEED-Platinum aspiring Napa Valley hotel, spa and restaurant is designed for the traveler craving couture comfort.

What will the discerning traveler find at the Bardessono? A touch of glamour awash in green; a return to old-fashioned, highly personalized hospitality; and an experiential hotel where quality and environmental ethics always trump the latest fads. More specifically, they’ll discover…

  • Custom-designed on and off-site adventures created by Guest Services Director Cristina Salas- Porras

  • A luxurious “green” spa heated and cooled by an underground geothermal system, which offers an East-meets-West-inspired menu

  • Organic spa “couture” from In Fiore, a blossoming skincare company whose homeopathic treatments and products have gathered a loyal following from San Francisco to Tokyo

  • Smart guestrooms disguised as sumptuously appointed suites and offering in-room spa services, 24-hour in-room dining, complimentary filtered still and sparkling water and exquisite Coyuchi organic linens and terrycloth

  • An esoteric list of locally distilled and crafted spirits, loose leaf herbals from Oakland-based Modern Tea, Blue Bottle micro-roasted coffees and espressos, all fashioned to tempt even the most discriminating bar culture enthusiasts

  • Complimentary services from the on-site bicycle shop and use of a bike for the duration of their stay

  • “Custom Cuisine” crafted by Executive Chef Sean O’Toole from fresh, local ingredients

  • Six acres stunningly landscaped with drought-tolerant foliage, organic herb gardens and vineyards tended by viticulturist Doug Hill

  • A modern hotel sensitively crafted from: recycled stone and salvaged orchard Walnut, Cypress, Redwood and California Bay woods

In collaboration with Cello & Maudru Construction and a host of extraordinary craftsmen, ecopioneer Phil Sherburne created this holistic haven in the heart of the walking village, Yountville. In fact, it’s just a few footsteps – or a quick bike ride – from the restaurants and wineries that have turned this Napa Valley town into an epicurean hub, including Michelin-ranked establishments like The French Laundry, Bouchon and Bistro Jeanty.

Set to open its doors next month (just in time for Premiere Napa Valley), Bardessono is a classic in the making. It’s a sustainable property designed to age and change with the times.
