Raised in San Francisco and have heard of the Calistoga 's mud baths but never had a chance until recently - went on Wine Country regional vacation , now that I live in SoCal. found this place via researching the different locals that offer mud baths - actually you're floating on top of the mud , in a deep 36"...

I took my wife for a couples treatment, It was the best thing we've ever done. The staff makes you feel well taken care of and the treatments take all your stresses away. Golden haven is definitely worth the trip and the price.

Not sure if our experience was indicative of a normal night at Golden Haven, but it definitely was memorable. The service itself (mud bath and massage) was fun and a great way to get over cross-continent jet lag. The masseurs we had were fine-- I thought they were clients at first. No uniforms. Just looked like a couple of guys... More

Mudbaths may not be for everyone, but they can be extremely relaxing. Golden Haven has a variety of specials. We got a last minute couples discount of 2 for 1 combo, where you can experience the mudbath together. An assistant walks you through the whole process. First, you soak in a special hot mud mixture. The tub is deep and... More

Admittedly, we arrived 25 minutes late for our mud bath appointment. (St.Helena traffic) However, the downhill rollercoaster ride that is Golden Heaven wasn't worth the trip. We had booked the day before, drove from Napa, only to be given the run around, and sit and watch as others who came after us get service. We were totally ignored. Barry, the... More

Buyer beware. I consider myself easy going and willing to try things off the beaten path. But this isn't off the beaten path...it is the beaten path. The pictures online look nothing like the actual resort. It reminded me of the old central Florida motels, low ceilings, mildly renovated. We went for the couples mud bath. As we were escorted...

We wanted to try a mud bath on a best friends trip to Napa Valley. Arriving at the spa we were a tad late, as we didn't anticipate the drive to take as long. We were welcomed and not rushed. The mud bath was definitely interesting. We were given an explanation on the process and provided privacy. We relaxed in... More

Yesenia was an excellent bath attendant. She did a wonderful job explaining all aspects of the experience. Nicole & Ed were excellent massage therapists as well. I'd skip the pool & jacuzzi all together of we were to go again.

Not too happy, as I tried to book a room with spa treatments for my daughter and I. It was exciting to have only one last room available, yet be turned away. My daughter, who is an honor roll student, model and fitness buff is celebrating her 15th birthday next weekend with me, her mother. They "won't accept guests under... More

As part of a couples get away we did a couple spa day including the mud baths, jacuzzi, blanket wrap, massage, and facials. It was a great day of relaxation and reconnecting. To us the mud bath was interesting, not something we'd seek out all the time but it was fun and we can definitely see why some people would... More
