Located in the Napa Valley, just 50 miles northeast of San Francisco and 60 miles southwest of Sacramento, Silverado Resort and Spa should be at the top of everyone’s list for wine country getaways. The AAA Four Diamond hotel encompasses more than 1,200 acres of land in the heart of the Valley and combines endless recreational possibilities with state-of-the-art business facilities. Since World Golf Hall of Fame member and lead NBC analyst Johnny Miller became owner in 2010, the resort has staked its claim as one of the Golden State’s premier destinations, with recent awards including Golf Week’s “Best Resort Courses,” Tennis Resorts Online’s “Top 50 Tennis Resorts,” and About.com’s Readers’ Choice “Best Hotel Spa.”
Beautiful renovations to the 370 guest rooms and the 12,000-square-foot conference center were recently completed and offer guests a fresh, updated feeling of warmth and luxury. With room options including standard resort rooms, junior suites or spacious one-, two- or three- bedroom suites, the resort is perfect for couples, families and group vacations.
Whether you prefer to unwind with a round of golf on one of the two award-winning, PGA championship courses, or with a soothing fireside massage in the full service spa, you’ll discover renewal and rejuvenation around every corner. Take a dip in one of 10 swimming pools, play a game of tennis on one of 13 courts, or explore the many hiking and biking trails. Of course, Silverado’s close proximity to more than 400 wineries means you’re never too far away from a spectacular Pinot Noir or Chardonnay.
The picturesque North and South Courses at Silverado Resort are legends in the golf world. Recently redesigned by Johnny Miller, both 18-hole championship courses feature dozens of water crossings and elevation changes routing through oak, pine and redwood trees. Included in all golf rates at Silverado are complimentary range balls for practice, golf carts, yardage cards and green fees. The stylish 10,000-square-foot Club House pro shop, an AGM Platinum Award Winner for “Top 100 Golf Shops,” has all you need before teeing off and the staff of professionals is eager to help with lessons, packages and more.
The long tournament history at Silverado includes 14 PGA Tour events, from 1968 through 1980, and the Champions Tour stop, from 1989 to 2002. This year, PGA golf returns to the resort in October as Silverado plays host to the 2016 Safeway Open on the iconic North Course. The four-day tournament is the opening event of the PGA TOUR season and will be televised worldwide on the Golf Channel. For those avid golfers that want to be amongst all the action, resort rooms, with the tournament play right out your door, are available during tournament week.
Along with golf, guests are encouraged to renew their mind, body and spirit at Silverado Resort’s Spa. Spanning 16,000 square feet, the award-winning spa offers an extensive menu of beauty and body treatments that combine traditional techniques with modern innovations. After a busy day in the vineyard or on the green, the Spa at Silverado invites you to unwind in the eucalyptus steam room and sauna, experience a soothing fireside massage and melt away stress in the indoor or outdoor whirlpool. More than a destination for treatments, the full service spa offers a fitness center, many complimentary classes including Dharma Yoga and Flexibility Training, garden and poolside cabanas and a 25-meter outdoor heated lap pool to enhance your journey to divine relaxation. Signature treatments include the Golf Swing Therapy Menu, featuring a Silverado Golf Ball Massage, GO Golf Facial, and private instructions.
Throughout the year you can catch great packages like the current “His and Hers Escape.” Now available, the package includes a round of PGA championship golf per night, a 50-minute spa treatment per night, and a $50 food credit available for use in The Grill, Mansion Lounge, Room Service or the Spa Café.
