The Most Luxurious Hotels in One of the Best Places to Indulge: Napa Valley

With the country's best wine and the most delicious locally-sourced, Michelin-starred food, and breathtaking scenery, indulgence is essentially Napa's guiding philosophy--one that extends to hotels as well. With a number of gasp-worthy options, there's no better place to check into a highly decadent inn. In the valley, they run the spectrum from bigger and village-style, like the Carneros Inn (which has over-the-top villas) and the Solage Calistoga, to smaller and more intimate spots like the North Block Hotel (formerly the Hotel Luca). They all have expanses of white linens on king-sized beds, high end (and sometimes local) suds in the bathrooms and friendly, attentive staff who want your stay to be as relaxing and stress-free as possible. Many of the hotels have full-service spas with treatments inspired by wine country, glamourous pools (the Solage's is the best) with shady cabanas spread around them. Many have excellent restaurants with well-known chefs and gardens that produce the food on your fork. The best part of all? They all exude such luxury in a calm serene way. They're way too cool to be flashy or overtly over the top; they just get all of the small, important details exactly right. The hardest part may be choosing which one to check in to.
