September 26, 2014 by

Lauded as one of the top hotels in the entire United States, this highly acclaimed Californian sanctuary combines ultramodern luxury with the simplistic elegance of countryside living.  Billing itself as “America’s greenest luxury hotel”, this lavish world-class enclave is also one of the very few resorts and hotels in the world to take pride in environmental stewardship.

Bardessono is truly the best place to crash for a little taste of Renaissance Tuscany in Napa Valley. Tucked right at the heart of a famous American wine region, this fabulous modern eco-friendly resort is just a few yards away from the region’s stunning European-like architectural jewels and most celebrated wineries, such as the Somerston Wine Company, Hestan Vineyards, Priest Ranch and Girard Winery. Plus, it is just a short walk from the hottest shopping centers, bars, cafes gourmet restaurants and attractions in Napa Valley.

Dedicated to preserving the environment, Bardessono isn’t called a green luxury hotel for nothing. After all, it holds the distinction as one of the three platinum Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified resorts in the United States. Unlike other luxurious boutique hotels in California, this beautiful hotel is made up of gorgeous recycled woods that were milled from reclaimed trees. During construction, the hotel’s management also opted to use only non-allergenic and non-toxic materials.

The hotel’s eco-friendly features also goes beyond its construction and architecture. Composting and recycling programs as well as organic linens are a requirement in this resort. Likewise, the products in its spa and restaurant are primarily sourced from sustainable or local organic producers. Reducing the demand for energy, the hotel is equipped with over 900 solar panels that provide energy to its lights, as well as an underground geothermal to help maintain the guest’s ideal room temperature.
