I had higher expectations for this place after looking at reviews and pictures of this place. I got disappointed. I came from Seattle and place I go to is away much cleaner, better and bigger. My friend and I didn't receive robs and shoes because we didn't order a service. Toilet has been cleaned for hours. Very few places to... More

Kathy N, Manager at Kabuki Springs and Spa, responded to this review

Hello Julia. I am sorry you were disappointed with Kabuki. I am guessing you visit Olympia in Tacoma, which is great, I agree, but very different. Thank you for the valuable feedback. We will keep trying to be our best with who and what we are. Thank you, Kathy Nelsen More

Kabuki Springs is a very relaxing experience. They offer a sauna,steam room, a warm soaking pool and a cold plunging pool. There are several days during the week that only men are allowed. It's a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

My Swedish massage was excellent and very thorough and was conducted in a private room. I booked 80 minutes and received a full 80 minute massage. Being a... More

I enjoy the Kabuki Springs communal baths on men's day almost every time I visit San Francisco. The atmosphere is soothing and the facilities are clean and well maintained. And all the staff members are competent and pleasant. On this trip, I also got a 25-minute Swedish massage, which felt terrific the day after running in the San Francisco half... More

I've been going to Kabuki Springs for well over a decade now. It's a gem of a spa offering most any spa service you could want. It's rare to find a place these days where the "no cell phone" rule is strictly enforced. Kabuki Springs is one of these places (though I will admit - there are times the staff... More

I LOVE Hotel Kabuki in San Francisco's Japantown. It is a quirky upscale type hotel in Japantown that treats its guests like special beings that deserve pampering. Upon check-in I received a free guest pass (worth $25) to Kabuki Spas just blocks away. The serene and meditative communal bath was a wonderful way to de-stress after a long, hard day... More

This was my 1st time visiting this type of spa and boy was I glad I came in with an open mind. This place was great. There is a dry sauna, steam room, cold tub and hot tub. You can even get a massage. Some days are women only and others are men only and some are co-ed.

It was my first time to the Kabuki Springs and Spa. I liked their steam room with the salt, cold towels and cucumbers. Loved the smell of the shampoo/conditioner. The only downside was the floor of the hot bath felt slimy. Wished I could wear my flip flops in there.

Make a reservation in advance! I've had this spot on my SF bucket list for a few months now and when I found myself with a free Friday afternoon I thought I would have an easy time booking a treatment in conjunction with a visit to the baths at Kabuki. The appointments for massages, facials, scrubs, etc. go fast and... More

I'm something of a spa and sauna junkie, and I must say that I was really impressed by Kabuki Springs. The place is spotlessly clean and has some great amenities that you don't find everywhere (tea located at several places in the spa, salt scrubs, etc.). I LOVED the fact that they maintain a quiet and restful environment. Nobody was... More
