Meadowood Napa Valley (St. Helena, CA) welcomed Michael Conte as director of spa and wellness. Conte’s responsibilities include leading the opening team of the new 14,000-square-foot Meadowood Spa anticipated to open this fall, as well as creating an elevated spa experience for the estate. Prior to joining Meadowood’s executive team, Conte was the spa director at Montage Laguna Beach (CA), where he led the Forbes five-star spa to garner two consecutive World Spa Awards for Best Spa of North and South America. The new Meadowood Spa will feature eight treatment suites, each offering leafy, forested views, and a spacious, private environment for treatments and complete relaxation. “Our therapists are going to be taking a personal interest in our guests’ overall wellbeing,” says Conte. “The overarching spa experience will be a blended harmony of therapy, relaxation, and education while offering a body, mind, and spirit connection.” The suite experience will include a pre-treatment, and a la carte offerings will be available for guests who are pressed for time. “Our guests will not need to leave their suites for anything, unless they wish to visit our outdoor men’s or women’s garden relaxation areas,” says Conte. He holds a BFA in musical theater and a minor in directing from The Boston Conservatory (MA) and has volunteered and partnered with non-profit Greet the Day, an organization dedicated to providing free spa treatments to individuals fighting cancer. He also volunteers for the International Spa Association (ISPA).
