October 1, 2019 by Jeanne Cooper

At the Carneros Resort and Spa, southern Napa's upscale semi-residential enclave (also known as a discreet getaway for Hollywood celebrities), the 94 cottages and suites now boast a fresh farm-chic look, thanks to renovations by Oakland's Nina Chiappa Interiors. New rustic- finished wood furniture, blackened iron lighting, and gray-toned wood flooring are brightened by botanical patterned fabric tapestry and gold, green, blue and teal accents to the pale cream palette. In most cottages, door-to-ceiling glass bifold doors open onto private terraces with gas re pits, dining tables and chaise lounges. At night, guests can now request miniprojectors or telescopes for backyard movie-watching or stargazing. For sampling nearby viticulture, Edward Costa, the resort's managing director, recommends Artesa Vineyards & Winery and Domaine Carneros. e former “houses beautiful art and is known for its pinot noir-dedicated vineyard and small-batch wines,” he says, while the latter “is a wonderful place for visitors who enjoy sparkling wine.” Book the Wine and Away package (two nights from $18,900) and enjoy round-trip private jet transport to Napa, plus lodgings in one of the resort's private homes and special spa and dining experiences. Cottages from $550 weeknight, suites from $900, residences from $1,260, 4048 Sonoma Highway, 707.299.4900, carnerosresort.com

The redesigned spa entrance at Carneros Resort and Spa is just one of many new features.
