i By January 29, 2021 No Comments

A Napa Valley retreat is the latest property to fly Hyatt’s Alila brand flag.

Formerly known as Las Alcobas, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Napa Valley, the 68-key wine country retreat in St. Helena, California, will join Hyatt’s portfolio on March 1, 2021, just ahead of its March 15th reopening.

Alila Napa Valley is the brand’s third property in the state. It joins Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort, and Alila Marea Beach Resort Encinitas, which is scheduled to open this March.

“Growing the Alila brand remains a priority for Hyatt and we’re so thrilled to offer guests and World of Hyatt members new, immersive experiences set in the remarkable beauty of California’s exceptional Napa Valley wine country,” said Crystal Vinisse Thomas, Hyatt global brand leader, Lifestyle and Luxury Brands. “As the third Alila destination in California, Alila Napa Valley is poised to provide a personalized approach that will help discerning guests discover what makes the Napa Valley region so special. As a leader in crafted luxury responsible tourism and transformative experiences, the Alila brand will deliver a refreshing guest experience that is all its own, while embodying a brand ethos that feels right at home in California.”

This Napa Valley retreat is surrounded by the home vineyards of the Beringer Estate. Its design by the renowned Yabu Pushelberg team features natural materials and a neutral palette that complements the vineyard and mountain views.

The hotel is built around a stately Georgian-style guesthouse that was originally constructed in 1907. It is now used to house the restaurant—Acacia House, led by chef Chris Cosentino—and a half horseshoe-shaped bar as well as seven guestrooms and a covered terrace with columns.

The property’s guestrooms, including seven suites, are appointed with automation controls, marble bathrooms and custom-designed furniture. All guestrooms have oversized balconies or wrap-around terraces with fireplaces. Some also have an outdoor bathtub.>

The property will also offer a transformed Spa Alila. It will offer a range of therapies, treatments and wellness offerings such as daily yoga classes, complimentary bicycles and “mindful wine tastings.” Other fitness amenities include a lap pool, steam room, premium fitness center and yoga studio.
