Auberge du Soleil Welcomes Hotel Guests For June 12 Reopening

Wine Country’s Most Luxurious Adults-Only Hideaway Beckons with Expansive Gardens, Private Terraces, Enhanced Outdoor Dining Experiences and Spectacular Valley Views

RUTHERFORD, Calif. (June 12, 2020) – Just in time for sun-drenched days and balmy summer nights, Auberge du Soleil, Napa Valley’s quintessential adult getaway, announced today’s reopening of its 50-room luxury inn situated in the heart of Wine Country. Inspired by the relaxed sophistication of the South of France, and infused with California soul, the ambiance and bucolic setting of the hotel transports guests to experience the essence of Provence within an easy drive from the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Perched on a sunlit hillside among 33 acres of heritage olive trees, native oaks and secluded gardens, Auberge du Soleil’s spacious maisons offer private terraces for relaxing and taking in the panoramic views of lush vineyards on the valley floor adjoined by the nearby Mayacamas mountain range. All 50 guest rooms and suites – including two free-standing, two-bedroom/two bath, 1,800 square foot Private Maisons – have been recently renovated by AD 100 interior designer Suzanne Tucker, principal of San Francisco’s Tucker & Marks, with a warm, contemporary aesthetic. Each room and suite, a retreat unto itself, welcomes guests with the comforts of home – from a chilled bottle of the property’s signature Rosé upon arrival, to new locally-sourced amenities, including green olive tapenade from Olivier Napa Valley, and handcrafted dark chocolate from St Helena’s Woodhouse Chocolate, to private label artisanal bath products. Accessible only from the secure guest room level, hotel guests are invited to explore the property’s renown sculpture garden, with nearly 100 works from 60 California artists, or set their own pace along meandering nature paths leading through redwoods, oaks and native landscape, all within the grounds and gardens of the hotel’s Parc du Soleil.

In addition, Auberge du Soleil recently reopened its acclaimed Bistro, featuring an expansive outdoor terrace for al fresco dining and a newly enhanced French-inspired menu from Michelin Star awarded Executive Chef, Robert Curry. Guests may also choose to enjoy the menu from the privacy of their guest room terrace or arrange for a romantic dinner for two within Le Jardin, a tranquil garden setting featuring a wisteria arbor and dreamy outdoor lighting. Classic French picnics are also available for guests to enjoy within the serene olive groves of Parc du Soleil, along with relaxing private spa experiences at the award-winning Auberge du Soleil Spa.

To ensure the safety and comfort of all guests and team members, Auberge du Soleil has instituted enhanced Health and Safety Practices in line with CDC, the State of California and local Napa County guidelines for hotels and restaurants. To allay future travel concerns the hotel is extending flexible cancellation and rebooking terms for stays reserved through 2020, along with compelling special offers including Book Without Worry and Taste of Summer. Rates begin at $875 and include daily breakfast in The Restaurant, complimentary in-room snacks and beverages, access to the Mercedes-Benz Guest Drive program, as well as a host of other complimentary services and amenities.
