There is one fact about me I bet most of you don’t know about it. I play golf between the age of 7-11 for every summer. I parents sent me away during the age of 7 to 11 for each summer holiday to stay with my aunt, who back then lived in 5 start hotels 365 days a year. She was already busy on her business trips so most of the time I was along in the country clubs and picked up golf due to boredom.
Located in the heart of the Wine Country, Silverado Resort and Spa has two world class championship golf courses, and designed by PGA Hall of Famer Johnny Miller. Did I fly half of the earth to come here to play gold? I wish I did. The truth is I didn’t know it has two PGA golf courses till my actually arrival on site. What attracted me to book this resort are its prime location in Napa Valley, beautiful settings through historic oak trees, cute little white wooden villa throughout the resort, and most importantly, those villas are all fully equipped, which means you can literally treat it as a holiday house and host dinner parties there with friends! The whole resort is like a tranquil little suburban town.
Located on site, there are four different types of accommodations, Mansion Estates, Cottage Drive, The Grove and Oak Creek East. Upon arrival, I was first greeted by a wine tasting session at ‘The Market’. Well, this is not surprising given that I was at the state of art region where all the famous wines from America were born. While I was sipping on the nice Chardonnay produced by the wineries nearby, my luggage have already been sent to my room and what really surprised me was some of my luggage were already unpacked for me when I returned to my mansion. What a service!
Silverado Resort and Spa pretty much covers the whole block of the land, which is about the size of the CBD in Melbourne, probably even bigger than that! The Spa and fitness facilities are located on the other side of the street from the main areas of the resort, where you can relax and have a massage in the open air in a cabana or just chill by the pool and enjoy the Californian weather. There are also on-site group classes and wellness coaches to help you to keep up with your fitness routines even when you are on holiday. For me, it was definitely required after all the big feasts I’ve had during my stay in Napa and Sonoma.
Whether you are on a romantic getaway, a girls spa trip, a boy’s golf road trip or a family retreat, Silverado would be able to accommodate all your needs and bring you the world class service! I would love to return here again when I’m visit Napa again next time.
