While on our visit to Napa the hubby and I decided to check out the Calistoga Golden Haven Hot Springs Resort and Spa. The resort is located in Calistoga, nestled in the heart of the Napa Valley wine country. It is known for its healing magic of Golden Haven’s natural hot springs mineral water, and has a welcoming, friendly and unpretentious atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel completely comfortable considering most of the services they offer are done in the nude. The Resort offers several different services to include hot springs baths, mud baths, massages and herbal facials in addition to accommodations and grounds that you can plan Bocce on, enjoy a picnic, and relax at.
We decided upon the Mud Bath service as they have a long history in Calistoga. Apparently, long before the first European settlers, the local Wappo Indians used this area as a place of healing and called it Coo-lay-no-maock, “the oven place”. Today, the mud bath service is the most requested service by couples and the spa still employs the use of the hot springs water in the mud bath.
Needless to say it was an Awesome time! I will most definitely be doing it again! Check out our pics below!
