Here are five indulgent and restorative getaways with pools and spas.
Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, Sonoma
The ultimate Wine Country oasis, this luxurious California resort offers several outdoor and indoor swimming pools, each filled with geothermal mineral water from the nearby Boyes Hot Springs, as well as a world-class spa and wellness center.
Guests of the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa can soak up the healing powers of the springs in the Main Resort Pool, Watsu Pool, and Spa Pool. Open year-round, these outdoor pools are heated to various degrees, each setting the steamy stage for ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation.
For a truly immersive wellness experience, book a treatment at the Fairmont Spa. Here, visitors can choose from an array of signature treatments, including the Fleur de Vigne Body Bliss, a 60-minute, multi-sensory experience, and the one-hour Fairmont Spa Salt Stone Massage. The spa also features a Roman-style bathhouse, mineral spring soaking tubs, an aromatherapy steam room, and a halotherapy sauna.
Kenwood Inn and Spa, Kenwood
This glamorous Tuscan-style resort boasts two pools — one warmed by a geothermal spring, the other cool and refreshing — as well as a soothing wellness spa.
The main pool is surrounding by lush gardens and cozy chaise lounges, and comes complete with a poolside snack and drink service. Guests can also opt for one of the semi-private cabanas, which include a premium bottle of sparking wine, artisan cheese and charcuterie plate, and more.
Or, treat yourself by booking the Spa Terrace, located on the rooftop of the spa. Then, choose from an array of self-care treatments, like the aromatherapeutic Valley of the Moon and 80-minute, restorative Rest & Renewal massage, before spending the remainder of the afternoon soaking in your own private spa tub overlooking the hotel grounds.

Tucked away in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley, Farmhouse Inn inspires its guests to escape their everyday routine Wine Country-style.
The inn's solar-heated pool is surrounded by fragrant gardens and delicate flowers, providing the perfect ambience for quiet respite and relaxation. The pool is heated seasonally, April to October, while the hot tub lives up to its name year-round.
