Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa

Pin It

sonoma-mission-inn.jpgMy parents stayed at the Sonoma Mission Inn on their honeymoon, and it’s just as beautiful today as it was then.

For hundreds of years, ancient thermal mineral waters have graced this site. First revered by Native American and early settlers as a bathing ground, the springs gained popularity among San Franciscans in the 1840s, when a bathhouse emerged to shelter the restorative waters. Generations of travelers have visited this site through the years to ‘take the waters’ and witness its transfermation from a rustic bathhouse to a new elegant Spanish-Mission style Inn in 1927.

Today, The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa is proud to be one of the only luxury spa resorts in the country with our own source of thermal mineral water, which flows from 1,100 feet directly beneath the Inn at 135 degrees.

The Spa pays homage to ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman civilizations, who believed in the axiom, ‘Sanitas Per Aquas’, or healing through water.

    Hi Duong,

    Thanks for visiting & commenting on my site.

    The Sonoma Mission Inn is really spectacular. It combines the beautiful, elegant old style architecture with a first class spa. I’m anxious to go back, too!

    It’s quite sentimental for me since my parents honeymooned there.
