Villa & Spa
Sonoma Coast Villa & Spa sits on a 60-acre resort in a quiet valley five miles east of Bodega Bay in the Russian River Valley area of Sonoma County. Our boutique hotel is within driving distance of the San Francisco Bay Area, just a 50-minute drive from San Rafael and a 60-minute drive from San Francisco. Regardless of where you are traveling from, we encourage you to enjoy your stay in one of our 18 charming suites equipped with elegant fireplaces, unique floor heating, and jacuzzi spas.
A visiting New York Times reporter even claimed after a Courtyard Spa signature treatment that he felt like he “…glowed inside and out.” While the Villa grows in fame regarding its comfort, elegance and calm, our built-in five-star restaurant has also become a place sought by diners looking for an extraordinary meal. Superb local wines are offered along with our extensive menu to create a truly luxurious experience. Check our News and Events page for the latest happenings around the property.

Sonoma Coast Villa: A History
When the original building was constructed in 1976, the Sonoma Coast Villa hosted only 6 guestrooms and was billed as a culinary destination by the owners of the Blue Boar Restaurant in San Francisco. They came to the Sonoma Coast and established the hotel and restaurant on the site of a former hog farm with the idea of getting closer to fresh ingredients from the local agricultural area. The spirit of this early farm-to-table concept lives on in our restaurant today, and we strive to use the freshest, local ingredients, including some from our own on-site organic garden. The hotel expanded several times, most recently in 2001, and now boasts 18 guestrooms, preserving the small inn feel and rustic charm that pervades the property.
