Spreading out under hills near the Meritage Resort, Spa Terra soothes guests in a stone grotto that exudes radiant heat and catches candlelight in bubbling water walls. The staff recommends guests begin either package in the Meritage whirlpool, where they may quiet their mind with the Dadaist babble of simmering water and a cool glass of wine or champagne. Refreshed, guests may don their uniform of fluffy robe and slippers and pad to a private chamber for their massage or facial. The Swedish massage ushers in deep relaxation with fluid strokes, easing soft-tissue tension without any discomfort from intense pressure. As gentle hands flush fresh blood through constricted sinews, fragrant scents swarm through sinuses from a neck wrap to chase away lingering aches.
The European facial relies on the client’s skincare needs to follow a custom course of treatment built with products from Eminence Organic and Napa Valley Organics, or the Italian Comfort Zone line. As firm hands massage knots from neck and shoulders, the beauty therapist evens skin texture with exfoliation, calms puffy skin around the eyes, and blends a mask to treat specific problems and conceal secret identities.
Several Napa Valley residents may have visited Spa Terra without ever realizing that they were there—or rather, that they were standing on top of it. The 22,000-square-foot hideaway is entirely subterranean and has tucked its 12 treatment rooms into the Estate Wine Cave behind the Meritage Resort. This naturally sequestered locale echoes with the whispers of waterfalls, enticing guests to trace the brick arches and spiraling mosaics of its Florentine design. Chandeliers and candles cast a glow onto stone, tile, iron, and wood accents, all of which were built by craftsmen to fit the underground space without angering its slumbering dragon landlord. The light takes a smoky, ethereal shift inside the steam grottos of the ladies' and gentlemen's lounges, and private soaking pools radiate blue-green tones from beneath the water.
In keeping with the earthy environs, the staff draws from local and organic ingredients during its treatments. Olives, herbs, and honey brighten skin through a variety of body scrubs and facials, which also rely on products from Comfort Zone and Éminence Organic Skin Care. Unsurprisingly, wine has a role in many of the services—the signature Solo Vino package begins with a cabernet-grape-seed scrub, then segues into a wine-cave-mud body wrap. It concludes with a therapeutic Terra massage and a selection of cheeses, served with wine or champagne. Guests can browse a far-reaching menu of massage modalities, including targeted styles for headaches and sore feet, or schedule a romantic couples session complete with chocolates to share.
