Napa Valley, U.S.A.

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, wine country’s leading luxury resort, has named Robby Delaney as General Manager. A veteran team member with a 16-year legacy at Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts, Delaney brings a wealth of hospitality management experience, ranging from his most recent role at the award-winning Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea to renowned properties in Denver, Beverly Hills and Seattle. At the newly awarded Forbes Five Star resort, Delaney is charged with ushering the acclaimed property into its next successful chapter, overseeing its strategic operations, profitability, guest services, food and beverage management, sales and marketing, and its many departments beyond.

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley opened to much acclaim in the fall of 2021. Located in the charming town of Calistoga, with 85 guest rooms and suites, 20 private residences, and set amid a 4.7-acre (1.9 hectare) vineyard, the property boasts a distinctive indoor-outdoor environment that overlooks panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. It hosts three restaurants - poolside dining at CAMPO, the all-day 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, new Polestar house cars, and a collection of bespoke event spaces including an onsite event barn for meetings, weddings, and other social gatherings.

“Wine country is one the most beautiful and dynamic destinations in the world, and I am so fortunate to join the exceptional Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley team,” says Delaney. “They have set the bar incredibly high for creating best-in-class vacation experiences. I look forward to learning from them, growing together, and honouring the Resort’s key pillars of authenticity, world-class culinary, wine and wellness. Both loyal and future guests can anticipate many exciting endeavours on the horizon as we build upon the recent opening momentum and steward the Resort into its next era as wine country’s premier resort.”

Originally from San Diego, California, Delaney joined Four Seasons in 2007 as a Front Desk Agent at Four Seasons Resort Aviara. He was soon promoted to Rooms Division Assistant Manager in 2008, and from there he continued to progress through the rooms division with positions at other Four Seasons properties across the country before becoming Director of Rooms at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle in 2017. After a year, Delaney was promoted to Hotel Manager. He then moved to Maui to take on the Resort Manager role in 2020, further expanding his experience to encompass a complex Resort operation.

Arriving to Maui just before the pandemic, Delaney was instrumental in leading the team through the challenges of re-opening the Resort safely and welcoming guests back to travel during a time of great uncertainty. Delaney has developed genuine, deep-rooted relationships with employees, guests and partners. His drive for excellence greatly contributed to the phenomenal success of the Forbes Five Star awarded Resort.

Delaney holds a bachelor’s degree in Communications from California State University San Marcos. He is joined in Napa Valley by his wife Liann, their daughter Makena, and son Kai. Delaney is passionate about great food, wine, sports, and the outdoors, and looks forward to enjoying the bounty and beauty of wine country.
