I look forward to being part of each guest’s wellness journey and looking to the terroir surrounding our secluded sanctuary for infinite inspiration
– Carrie Sotebeer
Montage has selected Carrie Sotebeer to lead the spa team at Montage Healdsburg resort in Sonoma County, California, opening 12 December 2020.
The launch of Spa Montage Healdsburg will mark the operator’s sixth Spa Montage – the 11,500sq ft facility is poised to become a restorative retreat inspired by its location in Northern California’s famed wine country.
Sotebeer brings more than a decade’s worth of industry and leadership experience to the role and joins Montage from The West Hollywood EDITION.
“Spa Montage Healdsburg is uniquely situated above the Alexander Valley to offer guests quiet views coupled with carefully crafted treatments that prompt individual renewal and transformation,” said Sotebeer.
“I look forward to being part of each guest’s wellness journey and looking to the terroir surrounding our secluded sanctuary for infinite inspiration and constant creativity.”
Elevated 20 feet above the vineyards, the spa will feature 11 treatment rooms, relaxation spaces, a retail area, a fitness centre equipped by Peloton and TechnoGym, hair, nail and make-up services and a zero-edge adult pool.
The destination will offer both signature and seasonal treatments using indigenous ingredients and a host of products houses, including Valmont, Kerstin Florian and OxyLight.
Other featured lines will include Lola’s Apothecary, Shankara, ANTARA by Zents and ODE by McEvoy Ranch, a local brand which will be used in the spa’s signature massage, the Sonoma Blend.
Guests will be able to indulge in signature services such as the Harvest Honey Ginger Infusion Ritual which harnesses honey’s healing properties to rehydrate the skin, and a unique two-hour couples’ treatment – named Journey of the Senses – inspired by the wine country setting and designed to emulate a wine tasting.
Montage Healdsburg is the collaborative vision of Glazier Le Architects, Delawie Architects and EDG Design.
Complete with four dining experiences, the 130-key resort is owned by Ohana Real Estate Investors and the property was developed by The Robert Green Company.
