Venue Highlights

Located at the northern tip of Napa Valley at the base of Mount Saint Helena, Calistoga is buzzing with hidden gems.

It’s ironic in a way, since the town of Calistoga helped put Napa Valley on the global wine map. In 1976, the town’s Chateau Montelena (and its 1973 Chardonnay) beat out the best French wines at the legendary tasting known as the Judgment of Paris.

Today, Calistoga’s local wine scene still has attention-grabbing appeal—in part thanks to Castello di Amorosa, the medieval-style,multi-turreted castle on a hill built by Italian-style winemaker Dario Sattui. A tour of the 121,000 square-foot castle (built over 15 years with authentic materials) makes for a fascinating hour, with its five towers, courtyard and loggias, a Tuscan-style farmhouse, a frescoed great hall, stables, a prison, and even a torture chamber (if you don’t like the wines?). Finish up with a 45-minute segment for barrel tastings and sips of current release

Chloe Johnston Experiences is the perfect pairing of luxury travel and elite lifestyle  opportunities. ​We excel in unique travel and lifestyle experiences that leave lasting memories.  Whether you’re looking to run away for a weekend, or escape reality in earnest, our global  travel designers can make your travel dreams come true. ​Ranging from shopping trips in Paris  to romantic getaways in Italy; from wine tours in Napa Valley to urban adventures in New York  City.  Chloe Johnston Experiences proposes a collaboration creating a unique fitness retreat in  California.    
Day 1 - Thursday 
Settle into your accommodations in preparation for several days of rejuvenation through a  combination of high-intensity fitness routines followed by CJE curated experiences.   Explore the beautiful property, the picturesque setting, and ease yourself into vacation mode.   
Today, we start our fitness journey together with a nutritionist who will guide you through  how to combine delicious foods while maintaining mindful eating. There’s no holiday without  some indulgence and this is your perfect guide on to how to maintain balance, while still  enjoying a cocktail or your favorite dessert.    
Together, we channel our inner Yogi and practise ​dhyana ​(meditation) as we set the tone for  the rest of the stay.      This evening, enjoy wine tastings at this unique tasting room featuring limited production,  handcrafted wines from one-of-a-kind vineyard. With production of under 1,000 cases per  year, they’re able to pay attention to each of their wines as individual expressions of the truly  incredible vineyards from which they're sourced.    Gather together for a welcome dinner with your fellow travelers and Chloe.    

Day 2 - Friday 
We begin Day 2 with your fitness guru as you release all your pent up stress amidst the lush  settings. At this boxing bootcamp, our expert, Symone, ​will have you ready to literally  kick-start your healthy lifestyle makeover.    T
aste the finest concoctions as you travel back in time on a tour of the historic property,  offering a glimpse of how the estate was developed. The tour concludes in the tasting room,  where the terrace provides stunning views of the Calistoga terroir. Take in the sights and enjoy a tasting flight of our flagship wines paired with an array of seasonal delicacies from their  Executive Chef.    Soon after, explore another beautiful estate - an organically farmed vineyard situated in a  private valley in the foothills of the western edge of Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. The East-West  running valley is planted with 12 acres of cabernet sauvignon vines on the steep eastern  hillsides composed of loamy, metamorphic soil. The refreshing wines paired with charcuterie  will indulge you into a luscious holiday mode.     Dinner recommendations to some of the most exciting spots minutes from the hotel will be  shared.   

Day 3- Saturday 
What better way to keep your heart pumping while on vacation? With our favorite travel  resistance bands. Easy to pack, light to carry, and you can work out with them wherever you  are. Today, Symone teaches you all the different ways to use them so that you can enjoy your  holidays guilt-free!    Afterwards, get ready for a unique lunch seated amongst the vines as you enjoy wine pairings  matched with food prepared straight from the owners kitchen.   Perched on a hillside on the southwestern edge of Knight’s Valley, the property overlooks both  Napa and Sonoma counties. To say this is a special place is an understatement!   Occupying a very interesting intersection between the valleys, and sitting just above the  fogline, the property is a study in juxtaposition. Volcanic and loamy soils. Marine and  mountain air. Wildlands and orderly vineyards. It is home to deer, wild turkeys and hawks, as  well as three generations of Links.    This evening dinner recommendations will be made.    

Day 4- Sunday 
Start your day with​ AQUA BOOT CAMP​ with your personal fitness expert.  Splash your way to an intense, low impact, full body workout that emphasizes agility, strength,  and speed. Set to a high-energy soundtrack, prepare for fast, and powerful movements that  will tone your muscles and increase your cardio! No swimming skills required!     Note -Participants may choose to wear clothing over a bathing suit and/or wear water shoes.    Afterwards enjoy one of the below options:    Spa  Tucked between the redwoods and the ocean, is one of the world’s premier destinations for  deep relaxation. A spa and zen meditation retreat, this peaceful sanctuary features North  America’s only haven for cedar enzyme baths, a unique Japanese therapeutic treatment that  will leave you feeling calm, warm and soothed—as you sink into a pile of soft cedar flakes. Just  like a mini zen garden where you effortlessly rake the sand over and over in a relaxing motion,  your fingers and toes will brush through the cedar and subtly lull you into a peaceful state. 

After this physically and spiritually healing experience, we’ll walk across the street to indulge  in an assortment of brick-oven-baked sourdough bread, scones, biscotti, sticky  buns and more—just the right dose of decadence to whet your appetite for the ultimate  first batch of the cedar enzyme baths.   
Kayaks and Kites    Begin your adventure paddling and floating from the town of Jenner By the Sea to Goat Rock  Beach on the gorgeous Sonoma Coast.    The magical mystery of the adventure unfolds with each paddle stroke through the calm,  peaceful waters of the Russian River estuary, a marine sanctuary. The tranquil paddling lands  you on an idyllic stretch of beach.  Moments of creating memories await as you engage with the seals, birds, wide open beach  and ocean, and indulge in the timeless fun of flying kites.     Kites are provided and yours to keep.     No kayaking experience necessary!    Tonight, gather around, share farm to fork style food and swap stories with everyone.  
Day 5 - Monday  No Monday Blues here! Unleash the inner adventurer in you as we explore the hidden hiking  trails of the region while you will enjoy a spectacular view of Napa Valley.    The best way to guarantee clean and healthy albeit delicious food, is to of course, prepare it  yourself. Get ready for a scrumptious catered meal by a private chef paired with exquisite  wines.

The retreat is spread is across 2 boutique hotels in Calistoga

Brannan Cottage Inn
Each of the beautifully reimagined rooms is a unique and enchanting home away from home, with classic charm and modern amenities. This historic Inn has been named one of USA Today’s 10 Best Romantic Places to Stay in Napa Valley. Complimentary continental breakfast, WiFi and parking are included with your stay.

The Inn is perfectly located to invite exploration of the charming, walkable town of Calistoga, the crown of Napa Valley. Their award-winning concierge service can help you create an unforgettable stay.

Calistoga Motor Lodge:
For oenophiles, Napa Valley’s attractions revolve solely around its gloried vineyards and fine restaurants. Thrill-seekers after less alcoholic pursuits tend to veer towards Calistoga to the northwest for its celebrated geothermal hot spring pools, a detour now made all the more de rigueur with this new 50-room property designed by AvroKO’s San Francisco studio.

The bright pastel hues of blues, yellows and greens alongside a glass-blocked lounge, reproduction vintage coolers by the pool and bedrooms dressed with camper van bench seats and graphic tiles, evoke iconography from the great American road trip, a canny move given the building’s past as the Sunburst Motel.

It offers an outdoor mud spa featuring DIY mud-bakes boasts tectonic views east of the Napa hillsides and Howell Mountain, and the detoxifying allure of a steaming soak in a mint-green claw-foot tub infused with medicinal salts harvested from Turkey, New Zealand and Japan.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
