What it is
A 258-acre ode to the good life, with an 11,500 square foot spa, zero edge pool and 130 modernist bungalow-style rooms.
What it isn't
Dated. The resort is brand spanking new, debuting December 2020.
What we think
Even in a part of California renowned for its achingly beautiful hotels, Montage Healdsburg stands apart. The resort, perched within 258 acres of vineyards and oak forest, is a wine-lovers dream sprung to resplendent life. Take the spa, lofted 20 feet over a vineyard, with its botanical treatments that take their cues from the land beyond the windows. Or the locavore on-site restaurants, like Hazel Hill—which has its own wine bar and open, interactive exhibition kitchen. Guest rooms themselves were tailor-made for California’s barefoot indoor/outdoor lifestyle, with floor to ceiling windows and earthy finishes, including copper, marble and blonde wood (bonus: they’re absolutely ginormous, starting at 599 square feet, and each one comes with a furnished terrace). Upgrade to a Deluxe Forest One Bedroom Suite for an al fresco fire pit and the kind of deep, sculptural soaking tub that Instagram dreams are made of.
You're here because
You’re on a health kick (to balance out all that wine tippling), and the resort’s fitness offerings include yoga in the garden and personal training sessions.
After a morning at the resort’s archery range and bocce ball court, you’re starting to feel like a kid again. So you do the previously unthinkable: you hop on an electric bike and whirl around Healdsburg’s country roads, the wind in your hair—and a picnic basket by your side.
