Las Alcobas, a Luxury Collection Hotel, has officially opened its doors in Napa Valley as the first luxury resort to debut in the area in seven years. The 68-room boutique hotel, sister property to Las Alcobas Mexico City is nestled next to the Beringer Vineyard in the charming and sophisticated community of St. Helena. Positioned as one of the most alluring hotels in wine country, it offers tranquil views overlooking the expanse of the vineyards.
“Following the success of Las Alcobas, Mexico City, we look forward to welcoming guests to our new Napa property,”
says Samuel Leizorek, Founder and CEO of the Las Alcobas brand and co-developer of Las Alcobas Napa Valley.
“We designed a hotel that feels like home with unique amenities and approachable service that will create lasting impressions with our guests who will feel they became part of our family when they leave. This follows the brand’s philosophy of “sobremesa” which means staying together after a meal, and the interaction of family and friends that creates the warmth and feeling of being recognized and included. Overall, an experience that fills one with delight and creates a cherished memory.”
The property is spread over three acres with the centerpiece being the historic Acacia House, a 1905 former Georgian-style residence that has been fully restored and now houses the new Acacia House restaurant, six guest rooms and a small boardroom. “The idea behind Las Alcobas was to create a hotel where guests would enjoy unrivaled views in a gorgeous setting, embraced by the warmth and majesty of St. Helena and Napa Valley,” says Guneet Bajwa co-developer and Managing Principal for Presidio Companies. “This project adds a new level of luxury in a coveted destination where guests are next door to the historic Rhine Mansion and Beringer Winery and within walking distance to the Culinary Institute, great restaurants, tasting rooms, wineries, shopping and downtown St. Helena.”
The Guest Rooms
Most of the hotel’s guestrooms and suites, feature fireplace-adorned outdoor terraces including ten with outdoor soaking tubs situated on private balconies. Seductive, peaceful and splendid interiors designed by international design firm Yabu Pushelberg are appointed with custom furniture, and oversized, spa-like bathrooms with soaking tubs and showers, stone carved sinks and beautiful marble throughout.
The light, airy guestrooms feature beds with linen-upholstered headboards flanked by custom bedside tables. Clean and modern finishes in natural tones with striking contrasts between the different areas of the room are enhanced by wood floors rolled up and integrated into the walls. The use of warm, organic materials like oak, completes the fresh, relaxing feel of the interiors. Special in-room amenities such as handmade soaps made with local wine and unique “alebrijes” (Mexican folk art sculptures of fantastical creatures) handcrafted in Mexico City, exemplify some of the thoughtful touches.
