Spa season

Is there such a thing as ‘spa season’? In Northern California there is. Many Wine Country hotels & resorts feature on-site luxurious spas so you can actually rendezvous any time of the year and rejuvenate. But there is something special about spa-ing in Wine Country during spring and summer. Why?

Because most spa resorts offer pool amenities and off the hook luxuries that cater to even the most dubious sun worshiper. And if you’re a city dweller, having access to a pool is rare, to say the least!

Spas listed in the mag are in no particular order because they are equally fabulous in their own way.

The Spa Hotel Healdsburg – the perfect place for a day trip from San Francisco or the coveted staycation.

We’ve come a long way in Wine Country. Where venues used to be limited to Tuscan, Provence or kitschy grape decor, The Spa Hotel Healdsburg raises the bar in Sonoma County modern extravagance.

Can you see your self slipping into these photos if only to imagine being here? It’s the start of the spa season so there’s still time, and, there’s always next time 🥂(to be honest, we had to save up to hang here).
