Milliken Creek Inn & Spa Celebrates 10 Years of Momentus Memories

Guests Are Invited to Mark Their Own Milestones with The “Back to the Beginning” Package

For the past decade, sophisticated travelers in search of genuine hospitality and exquisite service have quietly escaped to the charmingly indulgent suites at Milliken Creek Inn & Spa.  Like most of the Napa Valley wines that improve with age, Milliken is a cherished retreat that continuously offers enhanced levels of serenity and relaxation to its guests.  As one of the world’s most intimate and luxurious boutique hotels, Milliken Creek Inn & Spa invites guests to come and celebrate this monumental anniversary, and to create their own memorable milestones.

Milliken’s “Back to the Beginning” two-night package will help re-create events that celebrate the journey every couple experiences.  “Every day we help our guests make their own special memories and milestones,” said Connie Gore, hotel general manager.  “Based on those experiences, we’ve chosen specific activities for our anniversary package that will help couples renew and strengthen their relationship.”

This romantic escapade begins with the couple settling into one of Milliken’s 12 individually designed, spacious suites where thoughtful and romantic touches such as plush beds with the finest linens, oversized hydrotherapy bathtubs, deluxe robes, flickering fireplaces and charming views invite pampering and romance.  After settling in, couples will want to change into something special for a night on the town as round trip chauffeured transportation will bring them to a restaurant of their choice (four options available) to relive a provocative first date.  A $100 gift certificate for dinner will be provided and couples can choose to dine at Uva Trattoria Italiana, featuring delicious Italian regional cuisine and live music; Cole’s Chop House, an American classic steakhouse; Celadon, specializing in global comfort food featuring flavors from the Mediterranean, Asia and the Americas; or Angele, a French continental restaurant perched above the Napa River.  Upon their return to Milliken Creek Inn, the couple will amuse themselves with a turndown service that includes Couples Table Topics: Questions to Start Great Conversations.

As the sun rises over Milliken Creek Inn the next morning, the couple will leisurely ease into their day with a gourmet breakfast served anywhere from in-suite to the Waterfall Terrace.  A 90-minute chocolate decadence massage designed to leave skin feeling silky and fragrant will soon follow.  The treatment begins with a French sea salt scrub followed by a Moor Mud wrap and is finished with a calming massage using guest’s choice of Chocolate Raspberry Oil, Chocolate Cherry Oil, or Chocolate Mint Oil.

Without entering a classroom, couples will become students again as they head over to Joseph Phelps Vineyards for a seminar that will pique everyone’s interest from wine novice to connoisseur.  Afterward, couples will enjoy an in-suite Kama Sutra Lover’s Body Paint turndown that will entice couples to indulge their creative sides.  By the time guests leave, they will have created memories for a lifetime.  And to ensure they never forget their stay at Milliken, guests will be presented with a special gift on departure: a locally inspired picture frame with their photo taken on Milliken’s charming grounds.

This Napa experience to commemorate anniversaries and occasions of all varieties, replete with luxurious services, is priced from $999 per couple per two-night stay in a Milliken room mid-season.  For full details, visit Milliken Creek Inn & Spa’s website or call 800.822.8418 and request promo code “10YEARS.”
