Kabuki Springs & Spa
Kabuki Springs & Spa Review
This serene spa is one Japantown destination that draws locals from all over town, from hipster to grandma, Japanese-American or not. Balinese urns decorate the communal bath area of this house of tranquillity.
The massage menu has also expanded well beyond traditional shiatsu technique. The experience is no less relaxing, however, and the treatment regimen includes facials, salt scrubs, and mud and seaweed wraps. You can take your massage in a private room with a bath or in a curtained-off area.
The communal baths ($22 weekdays, $25 weekends) contain hot and cold tubs, a large Japanese-style bath, a sauna, a steam room, and showers. Bang the gong for quiet if your fellow bathers are speaking too loudly. The clothing-optional baths are open for men only on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays; women bathe on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Bathing suits are required on Tuesdays, when the baths are coed.
Men and women can reserve private rooms daily. An 80-minute massage-and-private-bath package costs $155 weekdays, $170 weekends; a package that includes a 50-minute massage and the use of the communal baths costs $100 weekdays, $109 weekends.
