Big Fun at Meritage

The Meritage Resort and Spa may be one of the biggest hotels in Napa since its mega renovation this past year, but the place has the feeling of a giant Tuscan-style playroom. “We’re launching a number of new programs this fall,” says activities coordinator Melody Arevalo, who helps guests make use of a new bar, bowling alley, coffee shop, poolside café, and fitness studio.

At Crush Ultra Lounge, enjoy bowling alongside quality cocktails, such as the 7–10 split with Nolet’s gin, yellow Chartreuse, and lemon juice. The six lanes here draw a mellow crowd to unwind after a day in Wine Country and nibble on appetizers from house-made Cracker Jack to ahi tuna wontons.

Whether you’re relaxing in the steam cave at Spa Terra, tucking into chef Antonio’s big-enough-for-two breakfast wrap from Blend Café, or enjoying a complimentary taste of Prosecco before dinner at Siena, you’ll soon realize Meritage may be large, but what’s not to like? themeritageresort.com.
