Three Auberge Resorts Collection Properties Named on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2023 Hot List

All of the collection’s new hotels—Stanly Ranch, Susurros del Corazón and Wildflower Farms—made up the strongest showing on the curated list of the year’s best new openings

MILL VALLEY, Calif. (April 28, 2023)Condé Nast Traveler has announced the 2023 Hot List, its highly curated, annual collection of the best new openings around the world, which includes Stanly Ranch, Auberge Resorts Collection in Napa Valley, California, Susurros del Corazón, Auberge Resorts Collection in Punta de Mita, Mexico, and Wildflower Farms, Auberge Resorts Collection in Hudson Valley, New York. All three of Auberge Resorts Collection’s eligible properties were hand-picked by the editors to be awarded on, with a handful of the winners also featured in the May issue.

Condé Nast Traveler explains their Hot List as a ‘definitive directory of places whose style, ethos and service set new standards for hospitality,’” said Craig Reid, president and chief executive officer of Auberge Resorts Collection. “We couldn’t be more honored that their highly discerning editors have selected all three of our new properties to be featured on this year’s list. Our team has put so much passion and hard work into opening these unique new resorts, which have blazed a trail in each of their respective destinations.”

Introducing a New Napa Experience

A new generation Napa resort, Stanly Ranch, Auberge Resorts Collection brings a bold, dynamic energy and creates an unrivaled destination and community. Set on an unparalleled 712 acres of rolling vineyards with incredible vistas of the Mayacamas Mountains, the resort reimagines the Napa experience in a multifaceted celebration of curiosity and exploration. Stanly Ranch, Auberge Resorts Collection features Halehouse, an Auberge spa offering a next-generation wellbeing destination that is dedicated to the achievement of personal wellness goals by helping guests to discover their full, untapped potential. The one-of-a-kind wellness facility reimagines what wellness looks like with cutting-edge experiences that combine world-class practitioners with state-of-the-art technology. In addition, the property is home to three unique dining venues, including Bear, which pays homage to local farmers and makers. The property allows guests to get a behind-the-scenes look at wine country with a unique range of thrilling adventures and immersive experiences across both Napa and Sonoma Valleys. 

A New, Nature-Immersed Retreat in New York’s Hudson Valley

Fringed by fiery fall forests and a slow-rippling river, Wildflower Farms, Auberge Resorts Collection is a verdant escape in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains just 90 minutes from New York City. A property that has opened to much fanfare, its expansive grounds encompass orchards, woodlands, a namesake farm, heirloom gardens and fields of native wildflowers that facilitate meaningful encounters with nature, perfect for city dwellers seeking an escape from urban life. Nestled within are 65 bespoke cabins, cottages and suites; seasonal wellness at Thistle, an Auberge Spa; three miles of onsite hiking trails; and unique experiences centered around nature. Bringing a new dimension to the Hudson Valley’s storied history of culinary influence, Wildflower Farms, Auberge Resorts Collection is home to exceptional dining destinations and an on-site cooking school and farm education center, Maplehouse, with a diverse calendar of weekly events. At the resort’s signature restaurant, Clay, pasture-raised meats, free-range chicken and eggs, aromatic herbs and heritage fruits and vegetables come directly from the on-site six-acre farm or hand-picked farm partners and are prepared to perfection, each new dish a love letter to the Hudson Valley.

A Mexican Oasis on Punta de Mita’s Best Beach

A new, private beachfront escape nestled between the jungled cliffs of Mexico’s Pacific Coast welcomes guests to the most spectacular beach in Punta de Mita. Meaning ‘whispers of the heart,’ Susurros del Corazón, Auberge Resorts Collection is an oceanfront oasis that blends Mexico’s vibrant culture with the playful spirit of a luxurious, laid-back surf retreat. Located just north of Puerto Vallarta Airport, each of the resort’s 59 rooms and suites and 30 villas and residences offer indoor-outdoor spaces with private terraces and large, nature-framing windows. At the resort’s signature, farmhouse-inspired restaurant, Casamilpa, menus take their cue from the local Huichol people who originally practiced sustenance farming, while other tastes of authentic Mexican cuisine from land and sea are savored across its other eateries and epicurean experiences. Moments of quiet reflection and renewal will unfold in Onda, an Auberge Spa, when it debuts later this year. There, 11 sea-facing treatment rooms and expert practitioners invoke holistic healing with ocean-inspired body therapies using Undaria seaweed oil, heart-opening turquoise and cold wave stones. Overlooking the turquoise waters of Bahía de Banderas, the resort is a place that guests fall in love with and return to again and again, bringing together those who seek fun, relaxation and an exclusive Mexico escape.
