Spa of the Week: The Spa Hotel Healdsburg

By Olivia Cuccaro

As harvest approaches, a trip to the Sonoma region of California promises a serene getaway where wine is at the heart of relaxing spa treatments. On the Western edge of the historic wine country town, Hotel Healdsburg provides a sense of place from its calm atmosphere to its farm-to-spa services.

The Spa Hotel Healdsburg features six treatment rooms, including a couple’s suite, as well as a garden patio, Jacuzzi and swimming pool secluded in the hotel’s own olive grove. Inspired by the rural beauty of surrounding Sonoma County, the spa incorporates locally-sourced products and natural elements into its healing treatments. Experience the region through services like the Wine and Honey Wrap, where you’ll be cocooned in warm blankets while receiving a neck and foot massage with honey and organically farmed sauvignon blanc from Quivira Vineyards in Dry Creek Valley to hydrate, moisturize improve circulation and purify pores. The spa also offers facials, such as the Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion Facial, in addition to rejuvenating body treatments and pampering nail treatments.

While wine is an integral part of the Sonoma County spirit, The Spa Hotel Healdsburg also embraces another of the region’s natural wonders — lavender. Partnered with Matanzas Creek Vineyard, the spa offers lavender-centered services for the ultimate aromatherapy. Guests can unwind with the Lavender Body Refresher massage, Lavender Face Renewal custom facial, foot scrub and massage or a Lavender Mani Pedi Hand and Foot Rejuvenator.

Turn your Sonoma spa day into a luxurious overnight with Hotel Healdsburg’s Spa Retreat package, featuring two 50-minute spa treatments with choice of Healdsburg Signature Massage and/or From the Farm Stress Relieving Facial. For your stay, we recommend the 800 sq ft Plaza Suites which overlook quaint downtown Healdsburg from multiple balconies. Each suite includes a master with king-size bed, spacious living room, and an oversized bathroom with a glass walk-in shower and six-foot soaking tub. Guests who book the package will enjoy complimentary valet and a harvest breakfast during their stay.
