San Francisco, CA (Vocus) July 7, 2010
California Tours has introduced a Wine Country Spa Package, a romantic five-day getaway perfect for a honeymoon or for couples seeking a brief, relaxing, vacation to remember. The package features a soothing stay at Spa Solage (voted #1 spa in the Americas and the Caribbean by Condé Nast Traveller), and private tours of the best of Napa and Sonoma Valley wine country and magnificent San Francisco.
“We offer a variety of wine country packages, but this luxury spa vacation was created specifically for couples,” said William Kim, general manager of California Tours. “From the couples spa treatments to the private tours of San Francisco and wine country, everything about this package gives couples the romantic and relaxing vacation they are looking for.”
The five-day getaway begins in beautiful San Francisco, with two nights’ lodging in the Hotel Nikko near Union Square. A private city tour takes vacationers to favorite San Francisco sights like Pier 39, the Golden Gate Bridge, and more. Conducted in a private vehicle, the tour reaches the most beautiful vistas atop the thrilling hills that larger tour buses can’t access.
After enjoying San Francisco, travelers are driven north to the wine country of the Napa and Sonoma valleys to taste world-class wines at private tours of renowned wineries such as Jacuzzi, Nicholson Ranch and Quintessa. This wonderful introduction to the art of fine winemaking includes the opportunity to discover new favorite wines. For example, guests will learn about Quintessa’s biodynamic winemaking process – featuring an organic, natural growing process that creates healthy and productive soils, vines, and grapes, with excellent results that are noticeable in the tasting room.
At the end of a pleasurable day, couples check into Solage Calistoga Resort and begin the spa portion of their stay. Travelers can relax in the geothermal mineral pool and enjoy a complimentary dinner at the resort’s Michelin-rated Solbar restaurant.
The following day is for pampering – beginning at Solage’s world-famous Spa Solage. Unwind with a unique and therapeutic mud treatment (a new version of the popular mud bath). Guests choose a mud type and then, as a couple or individually, apply a warm “mud cocktail” to the skin. Next, they are invited to rest in their private heated mud lodge, and, when done, to rinse off in Spa Solage’s geothermal mineral water bath. Travelers then enjoy a massage (also as a couple or individually), and leave Spa Solage fully relaxed and ready for the next part of their wine country and San Francisco adventure.
The vacation continues with a tasting of sparkling wine paired with cheese and fruit at Mumm Napa’s relaxing outdoor patio. Before returning home, travelers enjoy one last romantic evening in San Francisco on their own, perhaps at one of the city’s famous restaurants or cultural events.
In only five days, travelers will explore and learn about the region, try new wines, learn about the winemaking process, relax at deluxe spa facilities, and enjoy a world-class restaurant – all with comfort, luxury, and privacy.
“This vacation emphasizes comfort, and is perfect for working couples who want a memorable honeymoon package or couple’s retreat in only five days,” said Kim. “We will minimize the stress that often comes with traveling, so that when they return home, our guests will have enjoyed a truly wonderful experience.”
Prices will appeal to a variety of vacationers, and upgrades and options are offered for each package. The new packages are available immediately, and trips can start any day of the week. And for two or more couples traveling together, California Tours offers a special couples’ discount of 20 percent off of the package price.
