ST. HELENA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- When the warm weather returns, what better way to celebrate the sun than at Meadowood, where the estate recently completed an extensive renovation of its pools and fitness environs, including three swimming pools each with a distinct swim experience, new Pool Terrace bar and restaurant for guests 21 and older and an updated Fitness Center.

As part of Meadowood’s ongoing commitment to a beautiful environment and memorable experiences, the renovation of these areas is part of a continuing investment by the Meadowood owners to ensure the estate remains a premiere Napa Valley destination for discerning travelers while preserving the private, tranquil environment for generations to come.

The beautiful setting, including the interiors and exteriors, were designed by architect Howard Backen and his team at Backen & Gillam Architects. The style of architecture reflects and respects the landscape: simple, rustic-modern structures enjoy a strong connection to the setting with natural elements flowing throughout. The palette includes warm greys, creams, fresh greens and natural teak.


At the new adults-only Hotel Pool, a series of poolside lounges are complemented by four private cabanas, each accommodating up to six guests. The cabanas feature deep, cushioned lounge seating with comfortable throw pillows and teak coffee tables. Each affords guests the flexibility of a retractable, natural canvas awning and soft draperies on all four sides. Elevated services are offered in the cabanas daily. A large hot tub rests on the western side of the Hotel Pool between the western cabanas.

Additional low-lounge seating, ideal for enjoying a good book and a cocktail or glass of wine, accent the trellised area between the Hotel Pool and Pool Terrace.

Meadowood Chef Victoria Acosta’s cuisine draws inspiration from the Meadowood Garden and is focused on fresh, healthy options while also having traditional pool-style fare.

An integral part of the outdoor experience, the landscaping features Redwood and Pistachio trees, privet and boxwood hedges, espaliered Magnolia trees, box jasmine, decorative grasses and Santa Barbara daisies.
