I went on a Monday morning the day after flying into town from Australia. Without a doubt the perfect jet lag remedy. Although I didn't get a massage or facial (next time), simply spending a couple of hours moving between the dry sauna, steam, cold plunge and hot pool was soothing and an incredible way to relax and stretch after...

I have been going to the Kabuki for decades. I went weekly when I lived in the city for about seven years. I had a good friend who was a spa-junkie and our Thursday night soak was perfect for relaxing in a quiet environment and catching up. We fully appreciated that it was a place for soft conversations and kept... More

Hello GG, Thank you so much for the review. Very timely for us, as we have been discussing how much of a luxury quiet is, and if we truly are a whisper only facility. We constantly work on allowing people to relax in a serene environment. I apologize that you were shushed. Thank you for the feedback. Peace, Kathy Nelsen More

This is a great place to unwind and relax. Massage is quite good, ambiance is chill all the way. Clean and well maintained facility. Respectful clientele. Everything is indoors, so be ready for a more closed-in experience. But, once you relax, you probably won't mind. A great after work respite too.

True Japanese baths. I Love Brian for Shiatsu and the packages are worthwhile and decadent! Put this on your SPA bucket list for sure, or you will be missing out! The lodging and Japantown next door are GREAT TOO!!

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

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.

Visited here while staying in San Francisco on a Monday which is men's day. I booked a massage and access to the communal baths and spent a good few hours here relaxing. 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
