Napa Alcoves

Posted on: June 18th, 2018 by Carrie Young No Comments

Napa Valley boasts any number of luxury hotels boasting amazing vineyard views, but none has claimed a spot among the vines- until now. Sharing its St. Helena location with the historic Beringer Vineyard, Las Alcobas, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Napa Valley is the first high-end resort to debut in the area since 2010, offering lavish rooms within arm’s length of the grapes. The three-acre property, anchored by the 100-year-old Georgian-style Acacia House, takes full advantage of its stellar setting. A central lawn, small pool and large fire pit face the Mayacamas Mountain range, the state-of-the-art fitness center overlooks an oak tree-studded creek and the Acacia House veranda commands a valley view. The vistas are spectacular, but it’s the resort itself and its amenities that are most breathtaking. International firm Yabu Pushelberg has harnessed more than 50 shades of gray in the St. Helena hotel’s design. Carbon, charcoal, dove and more are utilized in every aspect, from furnishings, to wall paint, to custom Heath Ceramics serving ware.

Every luxe room features a private patio with its own gas-lit fire pit and some even come with outdoor soaking tubs. Celebrated Bay Area chef Chris Cosentino oversees the resort’s rustically elegant 50-seat Acacia House restaurant and its complimentary breakfast with housemade yogurts and pastries. The serene Las Alcobas spa, Atrio, specializes in unique, ancient Asian healing treatments for which therapists undergo intensive training. These services are found nowhere else in the valley. The resort’s close relationship with adjacent Beringer Vineyards allows you to experience elevated wine-tasting opportunities, such as exclusive tours with private reserve tastings and artisanal cheese pairings. Las Alcobas is an adults-only (16 and up) retreat, and while hotel staff and management love dogs, furry friends are not allowed.
