The famed Four Seasons Napa Valley is going to have quite the competition when Six Senses arrives in 2026. Announced this week, the high-end hotel and resorts brand will be taking over the former site of Napa Valley’s historic Aetna Springs with architectural firm Olseon Kundig commissioned for the lush 95-room Six Senses Napa Valley, which will include ten tent-style accommodations and 16 private residences.

Given Six Senses is opening up numerous properties across Europe in the next few years, it’s nice to see the brand show some love to North America after plans for Six Senses New York fell through.

Six Senses Napa Valley will stand at around a 15-minute drive from Pope Valley Airport, so luxury travellers who fly into California’s famed wine region via private jet will have easy access. For everyone else, Santa Rosa/Sonoma County Airport is just under a 1.5-hour drive away, and San Francisco International Airport is just 2.5 hours.

The location means guests at the resort will be within easy distance from some of Napa Valley’s best wineries, including Pope Valley Winery and Cimarossa Wines.

Wellness seems to inform just about every inch of this new Napa Valley resort. The site’s historic mineral springs will be revived with an indoor-outdoor thermal precinct framed by pockets of greenery to help separate the resort from the surroundings.

Local herbs and essential oils will be used for the indoor bathing facilities, translated by hot and cold therapies that complement a wider wellness program spanning yoga, meditation, mindfulness and nature-inspired spa treatments.

Guests will even be presented with “personalised longevity programs” to focus on the mind-gut-skin connection using scientific advancements in neuroscience. Wellness is taken very seriously here.

Aside from the additional activities designed to make this a restorative experience for guests, all the other amenities should align nicely with the wellness and sustainability approach Six Senses is known for. There will be a total of four restaurants and bars, shooting off from the open-plan Dining Hall which will feature long communal tables and more intimate nooks.

The open-air Well restaurant will mirror the site’s history as Aetna Springs while the Juice & Brew Bar will focus on detoxing alongside classic alcoholic cocktails and beers. Of course, wine is a big presence in each of these venues, and it seems Napa’s famed Cabernets are taking pride of place.

It’s still a while away, but Six Senses Napa Valley is already shaping up to be one of the hottest hotel openings in 2026. Details are nascent so we’ll be updating this piece once we know more about the new resort.
