Surrounded by private vineyards and wineries on eight rolling acres, close to the Chardonnay Golf Course and all the recreational opportunities of the Napa River and the rustic Carneros region, the Meritage Resort is a modern full-service resort perfect for business functions and luxury spa lovers. The extensive grounds include two spacious pool areas with poolside lounging and dining reminiscent of a Scottsdale-style resort. Behind the resort, inside a cool, stone-walled wine cave, are the award-winning Terra Spa, a private banquet facility, and a tasting room were local wineries pour their latest vintages. While the hotel's restaurant, Siena, is popular with families and groups, it's the spa that stands out, with a deep jacuzzi, eucalyptus steam room, health-oriented cafe, and relaxation room. A lively atmosphere prevails at the Meritage Wine Bar, which serves signature cocktails and 250 different California wines.
Businesses hold frequent events and retreats in the resort's extensive conference facilities. There's also a business center and hotel-wide wi-fi. Meritage is also becoming popular for weddings thanks to affordable packages, roomy event spaces, and the onsite Our Lady of the Grapes Chapel.
