The Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa Santa Rosa California


The Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa, in the Sonoma County Wine Country, is a Santa Rosa historic landmark. With the classic charm of the resort hotels of the 1950s and all the contemporary amenities important to today’s guests, it is the perfect location for exploring Northern California’s premier Wine Country in Sonoma and Napa. The hotel is centrally located to the towns of Healdsburg, Sonoma, Calistoga and St. Helena. The Pacific Ocean, the Russian River and Armstrong Redwood Grove are both just a short drive away.

Set among the artfully-maintained gardens is the resort’s world-class health club and spa. The Santa Rosa resort is central to twelve distinct wine appellations including the Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley and Sonoma Valley. Recreation attractions are abundant both at the resort and in the surrounding Sonoma County countryside.
