Turtle Bay Resort
Picture a sun-drenched island in the Pacific. A place of such natural beauty, even business seems like a breezy day in paradise. Welcome to Turtle Bay Resort on Hawaii's North Shore.
Peter & Linda La Canada, CA April 2012
The hotel is basically as perfect as it gets!! We have stayed in the finest hotels throughout the world and the green, Zen, and exquisite landscape of the Bardessono are unmatched.
Taryn Los Angeles, CA April 2012
The entire concierge team was exceptional. I dealt largely with Samantha who helped me in several iterations of an itinerary. Also the check in staff on the day we arrived in the evening on made us feel particularly welcome and were so sweet leaving us some treats upon coming back after dinner.

My husband and I enjoy celebrating our anniversary each year with trips to romantic destinations with hotels that are known for impeccable service. This year we reserved our suite at the Bardessono strictly based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. Well, we were beyond pleased with the EXCELLENT service and SOPHISTICATION of this hotel...from the reservation experience, check-in procedure, suite amenities, staff friendliness and overall pleasant atmosphere this turned out to be one of the best hotels in which we have stayed (and we have stayed at some of the very best). We HIGHLY recommend this to everyone that checks this site and is looking for a memorable Napa experience. I also have to mention the in room massages and pedicure that we had...we felt pampered and the staff were so gracious. Finally, an added bonus is that you can walk to all the best restaurants: French Laundry, Bouchon (our favorite...have the duck leg confit)…Thanks to the Bardessono staff for creating for us another wonderful anniversary celebration....well done!!!!!
Allison & Jennifer Los Angeles, CA March 2012
Best vacation of my 39 years on Earth. Our dogs were also in heaven. We will come back as often as rates and time allow. Thank you!
Dileep & Rema Dallas, TX February 2012
This was our second stay at Bardessono and it was delightful and flawless. In our opinion, Bardessono is one of the best hotels world-wide in which we have had the pleasure of staying. Our many thanks go to Katy who, as during our previous stay, was very kind and gracious and took very good care of us. She continues to be a great asset to your organization. We met Hillary for the first time and she was very pleasant and helpful , as well. Jamie and other members of your concierge staff were their usual helpful and pleasant selves, as were all members of the Bardessono staff. We look forward to our next visit to Bardessono.
Justin San Jose, CA January 2012
We love this hotel. It is very possibly my favorite hotel that I have ever stayed at.
Tamar La Jolla, CA December 2011
Amazing customer service. Overall it was an exceptional experience, will definitely be back. All the staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Will highly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits the area. Thanks for a great stay, you have set a very high standard for entire the hospitality industry. The hotel and your staff are outstanding!
Chris San Francisco, CA December 2011
I love this place. It's our 2nd trip here, and every time we come we are made to feel like royalty. It's a place I will return to many times.
Celeste Sacramento, CA November 2011
Our experience equaled that of a real treat. Thanks for your attention.
Ryan Houston, TX October 2011
I have visited other pet friendly hotels but none like bardessono, our experience was enhanced by how welcome our dog was. we all had a fabulous time!
Larry Cary, NC October 2011
Katie, was fabulous. [Hillery], the Manager was extremely nice as was Curtis and Camille and all the other staff. They were all so nice and helpful. We originally could not book your hotel, although we tried and tried but you were booked up for the days we wanted. We booked another hotel but when we checked in and compared it to the way we remembered your hotel and staff from a previous stay we were so disappointed until we called your hotel and checked to see if we could get in. We canceled our other hotel, paid a one night penalty and was able to stay at Bardessono, because of a cancellation and help from Katie and [Hillery]. We had a wonderful time there. We were celebrating our anniversary! Thank you all so much for everything.
Kristin August 2011
I was on Cloud 9 during my entire stay! The room was a cocoon of comfort and tranquility: I loved the patio, the curtain separating the second room from the main room, the relaxing clips on the TV (waterfalls, fireworks, plants), the bottled water and tea in the fridge, the muted browns and clay colors... We went cycling every morning then spent our afternoons by the pool in a bubble of bliss, enjoying the relaxing lounge music and Eddie's incomparable poolside service. The big eye tuna sandwich and the beet salad were to die for. In fact, I hope heaven is just like Bardessono. Thank you to the entire staff for an unforgettable stay.
Carolyn San Jose, CA July 2011
We had a wonderful time celebrating our second anniversary at Bardessono! We appreciated everyone's kindness and most definitely plan on making this a yearly tradition for years to come. Thank you so much!
P.K. Stanford, CA July 2011
Your staff delivered for us something that I could never have imagined. It was a truly amazing experience and one that I wonder if we'll experience from a hotel staff team ever again.
Ryan Reno, NV June 2011
My husband and I found you by chance on an internet search. We stayed there a year ago and fell in love with your hotel. We wanted to take my sister and brother in law on a pampered Napa weekend and came back to Bardessono, of course! All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's a little pricy, but a fantastic weekend getaway. The service is great, the food is great, and the rooms are great. We had in room spa treatments on both visits and LOVE those. We have recommended your hotel before and will continue to do so.
Kevin Chicago, IL May 2011
We chose Bardessono for our Honeymoon because we knew we wanted to stay in Yountville and because we liked the available bicycles. I thought the LEED certification was also cool, but to be honest was slightly concerned that we'd check into an overly eco-centric hotel with paper thin walls and no hot water. The experience was fantastic - the rooms were cleanly, comfortable, and spacious. The concierge, whom I think I had only spoken to once about a month before we arrived, obviously had taken notes on our phone call as there was a bottle of champagne and some snacks in the room to congratulate us on the marriage. The room service was excellent, the in-room massage was a great option, and we really loved the atmosphere of the whole hotel. Great experience and we'd highly recommend it to future guests in the area.
Blaire & Carrie Napa, CA May 2011
Absolutely a wonderful experience! It was one of the best places we ever stayed in! FABULOUS!!!
Callum Los Angeles, CA February 2011
This compares easily with some of the best hotels we've stayed at world-wide. Friendliness and professionalism was blended quite wonderfully. We'll be coming back for years and recommending a quite fantastic hotel to everyone we know! Thanks for helping make my weekend.
Irvine, CA November 2010
My wife and I thought Bardessono was one of the most beautifully designed hotels ever made with a very modern feel. From the moment we arrived the valet staff was far superior to any hotel we have ever stayed. We saw them not just running to get our car but SPRINTING as if they were competing in the Olympics. We cannot say enough good things about this hotel in this review of it so we will definitely tell you in person when we see you again. Thanks for an amazing experience!
San Ramon CA on TripAdvisor - November 2010
My husband and I were amazed at the quality of service and the serene surroundings. Our room was beautiful and the atmosphere of the whole facility was incredible. Your staff is helpful, courteous and efficient. I am so happy we were able to find you and will use your facility in the future. Thank you for an enchanting evening.
Patti Findlay, OH - September 2010
There's nowhere else [our daughters] would stay when they come back to wine country, since not another venue would have the ''zen'' quality ambiance and the incredible staff; starting [with] the concierge team. Each and every single one of them has written a note saying how much they enjoyed having Robin and Tasha as guests. What a lovely thing to do in their already jam-packed hours in the day arranging perfect things for their guests.
Douglas Austin, TX - September 2010
I had the distinct pleasure of staying at your property recently and wanted to let you know how impressed I was. The entire staff was professional and polite, but also genuinely happy to do everything possible to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Please pass along to the Ownership my sincere appreciation for the immaculately kept grounds and rooms. The modern design and beautiful space that has been created was very peaceful, while still being in the center of Yountville.
Maryanne August 2010
The hotel is beautiful, peaceful and the service is wonderful. It is expensive but I appreciate that you offer one night stays during the week for those of us from San Francisco looking to escape the fog for a night. I would love to return to this hotel again and again - the food was great, and from the moment you meet the parking attendant, you know the hotel is well managed. I have stayed at beautiful looking hotels that are poorly run and it ruins the experience. My daughter was inspired to come home and "de-clutter" her room. I will use the information I learned about the green building construction to teach my students when I return to the classroom in a few weeks. Thank you.
Thomas & Cindy
I would like to thank you and your amazing staff for making our four day mini-vacation an unforgettable journey. Me and my beautiful girlfriend Cindy had stayed at your incredible resort [in] July. The rooms were amazing, spotless, well stocked and luxurious. We had ordered room service two of the nights [for dinner] and the waiter "Tim" was great! I had asked Tim if he knew where the famous "Bouchon" bakery was and he described to me how to get there from the hotel. An hour later a note had been slipped under our door with a drawn detailed map from Tim. I thought that this was going above and beyond his duties and it is the little things like this that make your hotel amazing. Me and Cindy felt like we were royalty, when we arrived we had a bottle of "Villa Mt. Eden, Cabernet awaiting us with a card saying "Happy Birthday Cindy" this was amazing and Cindy felt like Cinderella. We loved this wine so much that we ordered the same wine the two nights that we ate at the hotels incredible restaurant. We have been searching for this wine everywhere and have yet to find it. It was so delicious! When we came home from our trip we had told all of our families and friends about The Bardessono and how happy you had made us feel welcomed, warm and like family.
Matthew Honolulu, HI April 2012
We had an absolutely fantastic time. We're fortunate to stay at world-class hotels on a regular basis - your hotel and staff are exceptionally better.
Josh Austin, TX April 2012
We appreciate everything so much, especially the champagne, chocolate and candles the night of our engagement! We LOVED every minute of our stay!
TripAdvisor Hong King, China March 2012
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate my 40th birthday. The property is located right in the heart of Yountville where all the really good restaurants are located within walking distance. We were greeted by a friendly guy who brought us to our room right after we checked in. Even though it rained all day the room was perfect. The fireplace warmed up the room, I also had an in-room massage. In the evening, we walked to Hurley's for dinner (right across the street). We had breakfast at the Lucy's, the hotel restaurant - it was really yummy! Too bad we didn't get a chance to try to Jacuzzi located above the spa or the complimentary 4-hour Lexus test drive! I had a wonderful time and would return to this hotel in the future.
TripAdvisor Texas, USA February 2012
If you are going to be traveling to Napa Valley, you must stay at Bardessono in Yountville. It is the perfect hotel in the perfect village. Yountville is central to all wineries in Napa Valley so it is a wonderful location to base out of. The town itself is home to many great restaurants and shops. Bardessono is right off the main street but within walking distance from everything. The decor is modern, but warm and inviting. Every room has a fireplace and huge bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. This past visit we had a 2nd floor room with a huge balcony which was a lovely place to relax with a glass of wine. Each suite is also equipped with massage tables so you can have massages right in your room! The service here is second to none with everyone bending over backwards to be accommodating. They will even arrange to have all of your wine purchases shipped home for you! This hotel is our little slice of heaven!
Taloli Kuwait City, Kuwait February 2012
Location is amazing as some of the wine country's if not the world's best restaurants are walking distance. The lodge like accommodations are pure understated luxury. Simple but thoughtful every detail well thought out and tastefully displayed. The whole hotel mantra or mission seems to be environmentally conscious and sustainable they make Being green super stylish.
Danielle San Mateo, CA January 2012
Absolutely, hands down, one of the nicest hotels I've had the pleasure of visiting. Gorgeous setting, stunning architecture, gracious and attentive staff, spacious guest rooms, best bathroom ever. And a fireplace AND patio? Unexpected delights that quickly slowed my frenetic city pace to a relaxed vacation "om" - midweek no less! During my short stay, my boyfriend received numerous "we are coming BACK" texts from me. I shall return!
Michael Sao Paulo, Brazil December 2011
Very few comments to make (which is expected when you stay at a premier hotel - you surely remember to comment when something calls your attention, usually for a bad reason) other than to say that every moment, experience, staff member, service and item is top notch and makes you feel at home and pampered in a genuine and not-excessively-but-in-good-and-balanced way. Loved the architecture and design of the facilities. That "cool" but still earthy and rustic feeling, which is something I want to experience being in the wine country…Need to remark the fantastic assistance I had from concierge helping to figure out the best tours and visits to wineries - 5 stars to them.
Erika San Francisco, CA November 2011
We live in San Francisco and we stayed at the hotel for one night for my husband's birthday. We really like Yountville but haven't had a chance to stay at Bardessono until now and we really enjoyed it. I have already recommended it to a friend and her husband for their anniversary.
Erica Cincinnati, OH November 2011
I had a wonderful stay at the Bardessono. I have recommended it to other friends who have come to visit. And after my second visit, I will keep recommending it and keep coming back!
Jack & Linda Toronto, Ontario October 2011
Our cocktails in the bar were extraordinary, made so by the enthusiasm of the bartender, only 3 months into the job, and by the interesting cocktail lists that we sampled. ( A nice change from the wine) Then our server was knowledgeable, interesting and fun at dinner on Monday 24th.) The enthusiasm and personalities of these young people made the event for us. Camille, as our guiding concierge was lovely as well as responsive in planning our wine tour. We were novices to the task and thrilled at the outcome.The desk from the beginning to the end, with a small parcel delivery in between, were always a pleasure. I must in closing thank Eddie up at the pool.. GREAT STAFF!!!! Thank-you all!!!
Dennis & Tamara Everett, WA October 2011
Keep up the good work... I look forward to planning our next vacation, seminar, corp function, and/or off-site event at Bardessono.
Daniel Washington D.C. August 2011
Simply superb experience. Bardessono is in a league of its very own. It would be difficult to improve our stay in any way.
Tina Henderson, NV August 2011
Amazing staff. It was like they could read my mind. They knew who I was when I walked in and they had my invoice already prepared as I approached to check out. And the wine was a nice touch!
Frank New York, NY June 2011
My fiancé and I stayed at Bardessono as a kick off to our honeymoon. We stayed for a few days before heading to Maui. We both absolutely loved the hotel and staff. Everyone was so polite, Sam at the front desk was wonderful. When we arrived our room wasn't ready so she took us to the bar and bought us drinks, which I thought was lovely. James our bartender was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the hotel and surrounding area. Jim- you also came by and introduced yourself which I completely appreciated. It shows that you take pride in your staff and hotel. I love the boutique experience. It felt great that all of the employees we met during our stay remembered us. We really enjoyed the complimentary bike rental and used them every morning- it's a great perk. I could go on and on about how much we loved our stay here. We plan on visiting the area in the future and will now stay only at the Bardessono.
Neil Chicago, IL June 2011
Amazing time here, the staff is 200% professional and polite, we felt like we knew everyone there are entire life and that is a something one can not fake. Food was fantastics, drinks were delicious, and the room was PERFECT!
Tucson, AZ on TripAdvisor - April 2011
We've been to all of the wonderful luxurious resorts and hotels around the world...and none compare to the unique and luxurious experience we had at the Bardessono in Yountville. Situated right in the heart of downtown Yountville no rental is necessary...
Miami, FL on TripAdvisor - April 2011
Everyone, from the valet to the front "desk," concierge, spa and restaurant staff struck the perfect balance between warmth and courtesy - perfect for the sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere of the hotel. The rooms, with fireplaces and outdoor showers, are spectacular with an understated elegance that my husband and I favor. The bathrooms are almost the same size as the rooms! One important element to note - although set back, the hotel is in the town of Yountville which enjoys exceptional restaurants within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Bardessono (having stayed at various of the area's high-end establishments), and are most definitely staying there again on our next Napa visit.
Josh December 2010
Amazing experience! Absolutely perfect. Hotel is just beautiful and service was fantastic. I proposed to girlfriend in our room after massage treatments. Molly helped plan and set up everything: rose petals, flowers, chocolate, champagne. She made the experience so amazing and seamless. It would not have been as special without everyone's help. I cannot thank and compliment everyone enough. Will definitely be back and recommend to anyone visiting Napa.
Ted Woodside, CA November 2010
"A ryokan for the 21st century" is how I'm describing Bardessono to my friends. I love, love, loved my stay. It's easy to see that the designers put careful thought into the property, and that the staff has had excellent training. Thank you, Bardessono. Thank you very much.
Alaska on TripAdvisor - November 2010
Yountville is the perfect location to explore the valley and surrounding areas. Bardessono offers down to earth luxury while maximizing sustainability. Staff is attentive, friendly and efficient. Rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. This was one of the nicest guest experiences my wife and I have had in the States.
Diane Santa Rosa, CA - October 2010
I just wanted to thank you for the lovely stay our group had at the Bardessono. There was great attention to detail, and the level of service was exemplary. The tour was a special highlight. We hope to hold our planning session at the Bardessono in the future. Until then, you can count on our recommendation to friends and business partners.
Aileen Boston, MA - August 2010
My husband and I just returned from our second stay at the Bardessono. I had to write to let you know how much we enjoyed it, and how we are already planning our next visit! Our room was lovely and the service impeccable. But beyond that, we're so happy to be able to patronize a business that values sustainable living and green practices. The Bardessono is truly at the forefront of an important movement in the travel industry, and [we] are so glad to be along to enjoy the ride. We have already recommended the hotel to friends and colleagues here in Boston who visit Napa frequently. Looking forward to our next Bardessono stay!
Barbara Orinda, CA
The reason for choosing Bardessono for our stay is the environmental approach of the hotel itself. We wanted to see how all of the ecological and environmental elements had been applied. We now know it can be done!
We will certainly choose Bardessono above any other hotel in the Napa Valley and will be on the look out for new properties like the Bardessono. For those of us who enjoy travel, it is a must to stay in a hotel that is enviromentally friendly. It simply elevates the character of "hospitality service" to a new and much needed dimension.
Craig & JoAnn Seattle, WA
I was in the bar for a while and Thomas as well as Camile were very welcoming. I went on to dinner and met Alfonso, who made things happen without interrupting our conversation. He also is knowledgeable about the food. Kevin stopped by a few times helping with the delivery and checking on how things were going. [F]rom the guest side, our opinion is that you've got some great people here! I did not meet the Chef, but my dinner was fantastic. JoAnn and I ate every single bite of everything. The portions were correct, I tried the Wild King Salmon and JoAnn had the lamb.
The next time we head on out for a wine shopping adventure, and that is not all that often, but it is every now and then, we will be staying here for a couple of nights. I also intend on mentioning Bardessono to a few couples I know that would be pleased with the scene here. So, in closing, we want to wish you the best of luck with your task here, and encourage all involved to keep up the good work, it looks and feels real good from this side!
