Regional Specialties Showcased at Spa du Soleil
Discover a haven of luxury and escape, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Napa Valley. Nourish your senses with food for your body and soul at Spa du Soleil at Auberge du Soleil, "The Inn of the Sun."
Spa du Soleil opened in January 2001. Tara had the pleasure of serving as consultant on this 2-year project, working with Spa Director, Loma Alexander and Auberge management, to develop the concept, spa design, customized treatment program and product line.
Spa du Soleil occupies a 7,000 square foot stucco building, nestled in the olive garden near the entrance to the luxurious country inn's grounds on the slopes of Rutherford Hill, on the eastern verge of the Napa Valley. It embraces a nurturing philosophy embodied by a unique menu of body and facial treatments, which utilize natural ingredients indigenous to the region. These ingredients are harvested daily, and the menu of services they inspire changes on a seasonal basis to provide truly unique nourishment for the body and soul.
The philosophy was integrated into the design of a structure that offers each guest an opportunity to reconnect with themselves, each other and nature in an intimate environment. Anchored by a central courtyard punctuated by fountains and 100-year old olive trees, the spa reflects the French country inn charm and elegant simplicity of Auberge du Soleil. The six treatment rooms-including two designed specifically for couples-surround the courtyard, are bathed in natural light streaming through French doors that lead to a private patio with outdoor shower or tub.
The treatment concept is dedicated to creating a balance between the bounty of the Napa Valley and the latest skin care research and principles. Each day fresh ingredients are gathered and skillfully prepared to provide the basis for a seasonal menu of innovative treatments, defined by four distinct categories that relate to each region: The Valley, The Grove, The Garden and the Vineyard. Each incorporates massage, facial, exfoliation, masque and wrap, foot therapy and hair and scalp treatments into their menu of services.
