Auberge Resorts Collection to Manage Newly Acquired Solage Resort in Napa Valley

Sep 13, 2016

Auberge Resorts Collection, owner and operator of award-winning small luxury resorts, residences and clubs, today announced that the company will manage Solage, a contemporary resort located in the heart of California wine country, following the property’s recent acquisition by a joint venture formed between Flynn Properties and Auberge Resorts Collection. The resort returns to the Auberge portfolio as the company’s third managed property in Napa Valley.

“Auberge has demonstrated an ability to deliver results and has been an excellent operator and partner with us at our other Auberge resort, Esperanza, in Los Cabos,” said Greg Flynn, Founder and Chairman of Flynn Properties, Inc. “We’re excited to expand our relationship in another spectacular destination. Solage will be in superb hands under the leadership of Auberge.”

“The Auberge story began in Napa Valley, and today, Auberge is the pre-eminent luxury leader in California wine country,” said Craig Reid, President and Chief Executive Officer, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Together, Flynn Properties and Auberge will bring commitment, creativity and expertise to Solage, which will allow us to enhance the style and contemporary hospitality that has come to define the resort.”

Situated on 22 acres and surrounded by panoramic mountains and sweeping vineyards, Solage is an 89-room design-focused, environmentally conscious resort offering a fresh, comfortably cool experience. A must-visit destination for epicureans and a favorite among wine country locals, the resort’s seven-time Michelin Star-rated restaurant, Solbar, serves a dichotomous menu of healthful cuisine alongside more indulgent comfort food in a lively indoor-outdoor setting.

The award-winning 20,000-square-foot Spa features geo-thermal soaking pools, a state-of-the-art gym and yoga and movement studio with complimentary daily fitness classes, and a 130-foot outdoor swimming pool, the largest in Napa Valley. A destination-inspired treatment menu offers a range of therapeutic and restorative services, including a contemporary twist on Calistoga’s legendary mud and mineral water therapies.

“Solage offers a fresh, active and social experience that perfectly complements our other two iconic Napa Valley resorts,” said Mark Harmon, Founder and Managing Partner, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Having three distinctive resort experiences in wine country will enable us to create more unforgettable opportunities for our guests.”
