I visited Las Alcobas Napa Valley during the Holiday season, which made my visit especially magical.  I visited the property, with a friend, specifically to dine at Acacia House by Chris Cosentino.  From the moment we arrived at the property I knew that I was going to fall in love.   The staff here has gone above and beyond at every step to provide luxury service that one would expect from a luxury hotel.  I was also lucky enough to indulge in a unique spa experience at Atrio spa.

This is the perfect romantic getaway or to catchup with girlfriends. I am excited to go back.

 

The pool area boasts heated pool, fire pits and very comfortable seating to lounge it.  I can see myself drinking many glasses of bubbly here while enjoying the views of the vineyards.

Enjoyed one of the best brunches of 2017 at Acacia House by the incomparable Chef Chris Cosentino.

 

Some highlights were:

HERBtonic: apple, basil, cilantro, cucumber, spinach, ginger juice

Turmeric Shot: Fresh turmeric root

Oranges & Dates: Fresh Oranges serves with dates, pistachios and mint

Bananas & almonds: almond butter, coconut, coco nibs and tonka bean

Buttermilk buckwheat pancakes served with mascarpone,  fruit and maple syrup

Croissant milk toast: croissant bread pudding French toast, vanilla and whipped mascarpone.  This blew my mind, the BEST French toast  I’ve had and I am picky when it comes to French toast

Purgatory: baked eggs, savory spicy tomato sauce, olives and fresh flat bread

Chilaquiles: enough said

 

Atrio Spa

Atrio is a aroma driven spa, my experience started with a customized blend of essential oils using a proprietary technique to find the best scent for me.  This blend was later used on me in the massage room.

The massage was magical, I left feeling renewed. Can’t recommend the spa enough.
