Wine Country Gets a New Spa—and It’s a Big One.


Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa, Calif., has completed its two-year, $17 million expansion—including a new 5,000 square foot Vi La Vita Spa.

The full-service day spa and fitness center includes a wellness relaxation lounge and fire feature, indoor caldarium with warm pool and lounges and an outdoor pool and deck. The five treatment rooms offer access to a secluded garden patio area with seating; a couple’s treatment room includes a deluxe, private outdoor patio with a rain shower and lounge area.

The spa utilizes locally-sourced, botanically-based skin care lines such as Aromatherapy Associates, HydroPeptide and Epicurean.

Treatments include massage therapies, body polishes and scrubs, body wraps, skin care therapies, hair removal, signature treatments and more. Among the highlights: An Age-Reversing Superfruit Body Peel & Wrap; the La Dolce Vita Couples Wine & Roses Signature Treatment; an Anti-Aging Collagen Restorative Treatment; and the Vinters Inn Signature Massage.

Among the healing and wellness offerings are weekly instructor-led Vineyard Vinyasa classes, washed down with a glass of local Sonoma County wine. The on-site state-of-the-art fitness center offers Techno Gym equipment including treadmills, ellipticals and fitness bicycles.

At the center of the spa is a space surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, including vaulted ceilings and a natural design inspired by the 200-year-old heritage oak tree located right outside the spa doors.

“It has always been a dream of mine to bring a full-service spa to Vintners Inn,” said Vintners Inn CEO and co-owner Rhonda Carano. “Vi La Vita, ‘live life,’ symbolized by the mighty oak tree, sacred and powerful, alive and energizing, is considered the medicine tree of Mother Nature, bringing strength and purpose.”

Added spa and retail director Alison Abbott: “Every finite detail of Vi La Vita Spa – from the style and intimacy of our spa treatments, to our custom-mixed scents and carefully selected color palettes – is designed with the intention to provide our guests with an unrivaled relaxation experience.”
