Situated in the picturesque town of Yountville in the heart of Napa Valley this luxury spa resort, Bardessono Hotel & Spa, is a special retreat that offers unsurpassed comfort. The history of the resort begins in 1926 when the Bardessono family arrived from Italy. They planted grapes, prunes and walnuts along with a vegetable garden and raised farm animals. Today the Bardessono Hotel & Spa sits on five acres and continues the farming tradition with certified organic gardens which Chef Jim Leiken uses to create the masterpiece dishes offered at Lucy’s.
Guests are greeted with a glass of wine at check-in. The lobby of this modern luxury hotel is a contemporary, elegant blend of comfort and convenience that features natural and earthy elements. Prefer to skip the desk? No problem, they offer the OpenKey App so you can use your phone as your key.
Providing luxuriously appointed guestrooms and suites, the Bardessono Hotel & Spa accommodations include open living spaces, luxurious oversized bathrooms, gas fireplaces and private courtyards or balconies. Bedding in the suites is 100% Egyptian cotton Fili D’oro Linens and REN toiletries. Throughout the resort are spectacularly unique views along with sitting areas and all the modern amenities that you would expect at such an exclusive resort. The variety of suites and villas feature motion-controlled exterior shuttering systems and virtual surround sound speakers. They are pet-friendly too!
The Maple Grove Villas offer a uniquely exclusive experience as three separate villas – Flint, Jasper and Quartole- which can be combined into a three bedroom retreat.
Some extra services and amenities include a bottle of Napa Valley wine in your room, complimentary bicycles and valet parking and refreshments.

Lucy Restaurant and Bar features fresh fine dining with seasonal dishes featuring fruits and vegetables from the local garden. Here they have a philosophy which “blends modern aesthetic with eco-spirit”. This “field-to-fork” motto can be seen in the creative and delicious dishes we ordered at dinner. Locally-sourced ingredients are an important part of the menu.
Special thank you to Executive Chef Jim Leiken for creating such a wonderful selection of dishes. Everything we had for dinner was delicious and we will be back the next time we are in Yountville.
