Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa Review
The real draw at this Mission-style resort is the extensive, swank spa with its array of massages and treatments, some designed for couples. The focus on fitness and rejuvenation extends to an adjacent 7,087-yard golf course winding through trees and vineyards, a changing schedule of fitness classes, and guided hiking and biking excursions each morning. Standard guest rooms aren't terribly large, but are supremely comfortable; some have fireplaces and patios or balconies. "Mission Suites" are more spacious and have spa-like bathrooms.
The primary reason to come to this wine-country hotel is the spa. Thanks to an on-site source for thermal spring water, the theme here is healing through water. The signature treatment is a bathing ritual involving a series of hot and cold showers and baths; Watsu (Shiatsu massage in a warm pool) and flotation treatments round out the water therapies. Massages, scrubs, wraps, and facials use, among other things, lavender, grape seeds, and salt—some sourced locally.
