The relaxing, pampering, and healing powers of Sonoma County spas can be the perfect addition to your Wine Country vacation. Here you can heal through water, soil, and spirit in more than 40 spas and wellness centers. Below are just a few examples.

Soothe Your Spirit

Refresh your mind and renew your spirit with spa treatments that provide a quiet journey. Many spas offer gardens to enjoy before or after your treatment.

If you've never tried a cedar enzyme bath, you owe it to yourself to sink into this bit of heaven in wooden tubs filled with finely ground cedar, rice bran, and plant enzymes. Arrive early, change into your robe, and have tea in the Japanese garden. The sanctuary's Zen decor inspires meditation in its creek-side sand gardens, and creates the perfect setting for massages in outdoor pagodas amid whispering trees.

Healing Waters

Natural thermal springs, prevalent throughout the area, lend healing powers when you're immersed in the water.

One of Wine Country's iconic destinations, the spectacular, state-of-the-art Fairmont Spa spans 40,000-square-feet across a rotunda, 36 treatment rooms, and indoor and outdoor pools.

Guests come from all around the world to experience the baths, fed by the resort's own ancient source of natural thermal waters rich with 24 trace minerals. You can actually feel the earth's healing and relaxation powers flowing from the springs 1,100 feet directly beneath the Inn.

The waters rise at 135 degrees, and are so vital they have to be cooled for guest use. The signature Bathing Ritual is a must and is included with every visit, featuring an exfoliating shower, two mineral water soaking pools, herbal steam, dry sauna, and cool down showers.

Bounty of the Earth

Connect to this area's fertile soil through a wide variety of treatments inspired by local lavender, goat's milk, honey, and more.

Talk about a fancy farmhouse. Sophisticated spa rooms at the on-site Wellness Barn glitter with fireplaces, upscale farmhouse-chic decor, and farm-to-table products that use heirloom cider apples from the inn's home ranch plus herbs grown in Farmhouse's kitchen garden. Indulge in a Spring Forest Honey ginger massage, or a "body melt" that uses a warm pillow of muscle healing herbs, alfalfa hay, lavender, and chamomile.
