Bardessono began with a premise: "Create a first-class hotel that is both extraordinarily green and luxurious." In that they have succeeded and in the process created a memorable hotel in the beautiful surroundings of Yountville, in the heart of the Napa Valley.
Waste was cut at every turn, from construction to water usage. Resources from salvaged woods to repurposed stone were sourced locally and local artisans who shared their vision were recruited. Everything from the coffee served to cleaning supplies was sourced to be as green and organic as possible. And the systems needed to run a hotel - heat, electricity, transportation, water - were designed to preserve, reuse and recycle to an extent never seen before in a commercial enterprise, earning the Bardessono a prestigious LEED Platinum designation. Electricity is provided by solar panels and heating from Geothermal energy. Food comes from the garden and from local farms,
When is a hotel room not like a hotel room? When it’s at Bardessono. Your room will be in an intimate courtyard cluster and has either a patio or deck with a tall privacy fence ensuring your privacy inside or out. Inside, you will find indulgences from natural cotton linens to handcrafted lotions, as well as a spa bathroom designed so you can enjoy all the services of the Bardessono spa in the seclusion and comfort of your own room. Relax whilst your spa butler sets up the massage table and runs your bath. Doze as long as you like after your massage, before making your way to your private spa bath or to your ground-floor patio for a refreshing outdoor shower or a cool drink.
The spacious suites either have one King bed (550 sq. ft. inside; 250 sq. ft. outside), or one King and one Queen bed (750 sq. ft. inside; 250 sq. ft. outside). Each beautifully designed, modern suite has open living space and generous amounts of natural light with a luxurious bathroom, gas fireplace and private furnished courtyard or balcony. The 200 sq. ft. custom bathroom, designed to double as a private spa, features a concealed massage table, a soaking tub, separate shower, and double vanity.
