Kokua Hospitality adds two Napa Valley hotels to its management portfolio

Kokua Hospitality, an independent hotel-management company based in San Francisco, added two hotels to its management portfolio: The Wine Country Inn and the Napa Winery Inn, both located in Napa Valley, Calif. The properties mark the third and fourth California-based hotels to be managed by the company.

“We’re very excited to enter the Napa market,” Kirk Pederson, president of Kokua Hospitality, said in a statement. “We look forward to working with these properties and are confident that our institutional approach to revenue and operations management, fused with our owner-centric, entrepreneurial spirit, will create a recipe for success in the Napa Valley region.”

Wine Country Inn

The Wine Country Inn is a 29-room boutique luxury hotel located between the Napa Valley towns of St. Helena and Calistoga. Surrounded by acres of vineyards and wineries, the Wine Country Inn opened in 1975 as Napa Valley’s very first bed & breakfast. The hotel celebrates the spirit of Napa’s winemaking culture and offers a selection of rooms, suites and cottages with complimentary Wi-Fi, breakfast and views of the property’s lawns and botanical varietals. The hotel recently completed renovations to the lobby reception building and all guestrooms in the Winery House.
