Silverado Resort and Spa
For a Start: Championship Golf and World-class Dining
(NAPA, CA) — Long time Napa residents have an opinion about
Silverado. Some have been here long enough to remember it as
a private residence where presidents and dignitaries were entertained.
Some, as it enjoyed its early incarnation as a private club.
Others, those younger or just newer to the Valley, as it developed
its reputation as a Spa and once again, a dining destination.
No matter when the residents of the Valley first made their
own personal acquaintance with Silverado there is a common thread
in their attitude. Silverado has retained the dignity of its
early days, yet has continued to bespeak ease of living with
enjoyment of the bounty of the Valley.
Enjoyment that can clearly be had on one of its two championship
courses, with or without children
in one of its 10 swimming pools, during a spa treatment or working
out in the fitness room in one of the most commodious
spas in the County, or enjoying a meal whose freshness,
sustainability, healthfulness, and taste are over seen by the
talented Executive Chef Peter Pahk.
Of course those of us who enjoy down time in our room like Silverado’s
signature large glass windows overlooking the 360 acres of the
golf course. For those rather few without views of the lush green
scape, the rooms provide all the comforts of home, without the
drudgery. No clutter, no cleaning, large baths and fully appointed
suites and cottages for having that great bottle of wine with
a little dinner you whipped up – or ordered in.
Locals (and guests of other establishments) can find many ways
to include themselves in the Silverado way of life – even if
they don’t live on the grounds. The old great room of the original
mansion has a fabulous long, rich looking bar and there is usually
a fire burning or live jazz music gently playing to help set
the mood if you didn’t come equipped with your own attitude already
Royal Oak Restaurant has recently
been revamped and is definitely worth a try, especially if you
haven’t been in awhile. Some of its fun practices and craft have
been retained, while its food preparation, ideas, and menus have
been supercharged by Phak.

spa, golf, or overnight reservation make sure you check first
If it is just dinner you are after, reservations are recommended
for Royal Oak, but you might be able to squeeze in at The Grill
without. If you are really hungry, however, WineCountry.com suggests
you call first.
