Meritage Resort and Spa Information

Set against the rolling vineyards of California’s Wine Country, The Meritage Resort and Spa illuminates with gracious hospitality, unrivaled amenities, culinary delights and a wine and spa experience that you’ll never forget. 

Once at the resort, you will enjoy the best of Napa even without leaving the hotel grounds. The property includes the area’s only underground full-service spa and the Trinitas Estate Wine Cave featuring wines from grapes grown right there on the resort property. You can relax in the swimming pools, challenge friends to bowl a few frames, shoot some pool, hike and/or bike through the acres of hillside vineyards. Downtown Napa is a short ride away via the evening complimentary hotel shuttle. Most of the other vineyards and wineries are all within a 30-45 minute drive.
