The Spa at MacArthur

Wellness serenity in Sonoma

Radiating a welcoming farmhouse feel, MacArthur Place is a relaxed resort in the heart of Sonoma. Everything exudes understated elegance, including the small but luxurious The Spa at MacArthur Place.

Located next to the chic pool that resembles a Slim Aarons photograph, the spa specializes in treatments inspired by the surrounding landscape. Taking a note from the local farm-to-table food movement, the spa has farm-to-massage-table offerings that change with the season. These botanical-based services utilize fruit, flowers and herbs grown on the property or at nearby farms.

After several days of wine tasting, MacArthur Place’s spa is the ideal spot to unwind with a tranquil facial, scrub or body wrap.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The seven-room spa is intimate yet inviting. There’s a relaxation lounge, coed steam room, locker rooms and a boutique with curated skincare fitness, home goods.
  • If your respite is wellness- rather than wine-focused, the resort offers a rise and shine yoga flow on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Enjoy complimentary yoga and then spend the day at the spa by booking multiple treatments. 
  • If there is downtime between your massage and facial, take a dip in the garden pool.
  • One of the first things you’ll notice upon arriving at MacArthur Place is its gorgeous grounds. The property is filled with roses and other colorful flowers along with lush greenery. The signature spa treatments reflect this aesthetic. Rose clay from the garden is used in a wrap that is followed by a hot stone massage. Wildflowers are turned into essential oils, citrus and kale are combined to make an antioxidant-rich mask, and eucalyptus enhances the body scrub.
  • For a unique experience, book one of the farm-to-massage table treatments. Lavender blooms all over Sonoma in June, so the seasonal spa treatment — an indulgent aromatherapy massage — incorporates from Matanzas Creek Winery. During harvest, which lasts from August through October, a grape seed antioxidant treatment is offered. The 100-minute treatment starts with a red wine grape seed bath, moves to a grape seed body polish, and finishes with a grape seed essential oil massage.
