Wellness & Relaxation Retreat Itinerary: Downtown Napa

It’s easy to indulge in decadence with food and wine in Napa, but it’s also a wonderful destination for health, wellness and relaxation, too. Retreat to Napa for a wellness getaway, complete with spa and beauty treatments, fresh, organic meals and laid back recreation.

Day One:

Arrive to town in time for a healthy but filling lunch. At Oxbow Public Market, you’ll find delicious, fresh salads and cleansing juices at Hudson’s Greens & Goods – the perfect place to nourish your body as you settle in to Napa.

After reenergizing with lunch, take some time to connect with Napa’s outdoor beauty. Simply stroll through downtown – or if you’re in the mood for a bit more activity, you can explore the Napa River by kayak or paddleboard, or take a leisurely bike ride on the Napa Valley Vine Trail.

Now that you’ve enjoyed the fresh air, it’s time to get pampered! Freshen up at your hotel and then venture out for a little mani/pedi or a facial. Your skin will be radiant after a visit to Glow Skin & Body Care in Downtown Napa, which specializes in a variety of facials. You can also saunter in to Wood & Rowan nail spa on Main Street to get your nails done and peruse their selection of cosmetics, hair and skin care products.

If time allows, find your way to Whirlwind Blow Dry Lounge on Main Street where you can relax and get your hair styled for the evening.

Ready for a little sipping? Wine is said to promote longevity and reduce the risk of heart disease, so do your body some good and sample a few tastes at a local wine bar. Try Wines on First, a centrally located spot to try vintages from three different wineries. You’ll find a cool, classy wine bar and friendly atmosphere that’s just the right mood for this getaway.

Keep the relaxation going as you make dinner plans for the evening. Napa is home to many seasonally inspired restaurants that focus on using local, organic ingredients, so you’re sure to enjoy a meal that both pleases your palate and keeps you feeling healthy. Explore the flavors of Spain at Zuzu, a tantalizing tapas restaurant, or enjoy a rainbow of fresh ingredients at Eiko’s, one of Napa’s best sushi spots.

Day Two:

Wake up bright and early, and don’t forget to eat some breakfast! While it’s hard to pass up classic bacon-and-egg dishes for lighter fare, you’re sure to find fresh sliced fruit and a soul-warming bowl of oatmeal at any local breakfast establishment. If you’re a coffee lover, find your way to Ritual Coffee Roasters for a truly divine, hand-crafted espresso drink.

After breakfast, it’s time to get centered and strong with a yoga class! Zen out at Ekam Yoga & Wellness in Napa – classes start early and run through late morning, and offer a variety of yoga styles and levels for both novice and experienced yogis.

Next, it’s time to go all-in and spend the next few hours at the spa. Napa has a number of options around the city, whether you have a spa at your hotel or you plan to visit one.

For true relaxation, head to Spa Terra at The Meritage Resort and Spa – where you will get the royal wine country experience with treatments such as the cave stone massage, grapeseed scrub or a Lavender Crush full body exfoliation. If you’d like to stay in the downtown area, try Napa Valley Massage & Wellness Spa, which uses “farm-to-massage-table” organic spa products.

Glowing from your spa treatments, it’s time to sit down to a lovely lunch before leaving town or doing a bit more wine tasting and sight-seeing. The Kitchen Door at Oxbow Public Market has a fresh, seasonal menu with everything from salads to flatbreads to Pho that will refuel you.

Surrounded by the beauty of wine country and home to world-class spas, adorable salons and seasonal eats, there’s no place like Napa for a bit of wellness, rejuvenation and pampering!
