Solage Resort’s Superlative Amenities

As luxury hotels continue to proliferate throughout Northern California wine country, one established resort maintains its status as a Napa Valley favorite. Solage, Auberge Resorts Collection, has long served as the region’s ideal spot to retreat, relax, and rejuvenate. And a recent, stunning remodel of the Calistoga property serves to revive its preferred standing.

Most notable are changes to the resort’s swimming pool, the largest in the Valley. Visitors have come to know and love the iconic pool for its relaxing yet fun atmosphere. Solage has taken this ideal refuge, well-suited equally for couples, solo travelers, and families, and made it even more luxurious. Enhancements include the addition of six beautiful new cabanas, each featuring soft seating, fully stocked refrigerators, televisions, privacy curtains, and a team member dedicated to catering to guests’ every whim. New poolside furnishings include plush lounge chairs; a jacuzzi tub is also new, as is a separate three-foot deep ‘Splash Pad’ for families, and a lawn area for games and picnics. An incredible poolside food and beverage menu allows guests to experience the very best of the resort’s two outstanding restaurants: the new laid-back Pico Bar serving cocktails, wine, and bites, and Solbar, where Chef Gustavo Rios serves innovative and elevated comfort food dishes influenced by both his Latin background and his experience with European techniques.

One of Solage’s most popular amenities is the gratis offer of beach cruiser bikes – two per studio/cottage – allowing for relaxed exploration of the resort’s hometown of Calistoga. “We are always looking for new ways to bring the spirit of Calistoga to our guests,” said Devin Hawkins, Area Marketing Manager, Auberge  Resorts.  “In   addition  to the offer of the bikes, we work closely with local purveyors and have put together an assortment of in-room goodies dubbed ‘Napa Pantry’ for guests to purchase. These boxes feature locally-made items such as fig jam, handcrafted dark chocolates, delicious meats and cheeses, and our very own small- batch whiskey.”

The resort also offers live music on Wednesdays on the twinkle-lit Solbar patio, complimentary wine tastings on Thursdays and Fridays, fireside s’mores on Friday and Saturday evenings, and in the summer, SOL Summer Saturdays featuring a rotating list of wineries, breweries, and artisans.

“We are blessed to be located in such a wonderful community that has always been warm and welcoming, and we try to bring that same energy to our guests the moment they arrive at Solage,” said Hawkins. “We are a family, and we want our guests to feel like they are a part of that family. We are constantly learning from our guests and what they look for in a getaway to make sure their experience with us is special and truly one of a kind.”
