We wanted somewhere special to celebrate my wife’s birthday whilst visiting California. We chose Calistoga Ranch and what a good choice we made! From the moment we drove through the gates we were looked after perfectly. Check-in was fast and friendly all helped along by a glass of crisp chardonnay. The concierge Gloria then introduced herself explaining how she could help during our stay. By now our luggage had been unloaded from our car and onto a buggy and we were transported to our Deluxe Hillside lodge by the bell boy who explained where everything was during the ride. He then showed us around our fabulous room including the outdoor shower which as the temperature was 106F very welcome.
Each evening we ate in the Lakeside restaurant, it really is a stunning setting overlooking the lake. For the first two evenings we had the four course tasting menu which was fantastic and on the final evening when we just had steak as we were ‘fine dined’ out. Service in the restaurant was excellent our only hiccup was on the last evening when we were kept waiting five minutes before the maître d’ came to seat us as he seemed to be more interested in chatting than attending to us.
We had a Sensuous Soak and Massage in the spa, this started with exclusive use of one of the pools with champagne and strawberries followed by a massage. The therapists were very good definitely the best we have had anywhere. A heavenly experience.
Each morning we walked one of the trails enjoying the spectacular views while it was still pleasantly cool then enjoyed breakfast before going to laze by the pool.
If you want to experience service, pampering, luxury and good food and make a special occasion one to remember then Calistoga Ranch is the place to go.
