Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley, Wine Country’s leading luxury resort, has received its inaugural Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Rating, following the property’s first full year of opening. Now in its 65th year, this coveted award is given to properties that demonstrate a unique and unwavering commitment to elevating the guest experience with staff as passionate as they are thorough in the delivery of their service. Awards are determined throughout the year by expert instructors visiting a property and evaluating based on hundreds of exacting standards, such as authentic guest experience, evolution of well-being, sustainability and luxury, guest expectations, and relaxed luxury.

“We are extremely honoured to receive this prestigious Five Star recognition by Forbes Travel Guide alongside a collection of the world’s finest hotels and resorts,” says Janet Wruck, Resort Manager of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley. It is a true testament to the level of dedication and thoughtful hospitality our property team delivers to guests on a daily basis, and we look forward to maintaining this level of excellence for years to come.”

Located in the charming town of Calistoga, with just 85 guest rooms and suites and set amid a 4.7-acre (1.9 hectare) vineyard, Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley is both intimate and at one with the sprawling countryside, boasting an indoor-outdoor environment that overlooks panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. The Resort encompasses two destination restaurants – the all-day dining TRUSS Restaurant + Bar, and the newly-debuted fine dining concept Auro helmed by Executive Chef Rogelio Garcia - plus curated wine tastings at the on-site Elusa Winery, holistic wellness treatments at Spa Talisa, two outdoor pools, a hot tub, bocce ball court, fitness centre, the Kids For All Seasons program, Polestar house cars, and a collection of bespoke event spaces including an onsite event barn for meetings, weddings and other social gatherings.

To compile the annual awards, Forbes Travel Guide’s incognito inspectors check into hotels and cruise ships, dine in the restaurants and experience spa services while posing as guests, testing around 900 rigorous standards throughout their stay. Seventy percent of a property’s rating is based on service, while the remaining 30 percent is determined by the quality and conditions of its facilities.
