We visited Shoji for a day during our honeymoon, and wow! We loved every second. It wasn't hard to find, although the road probably would have caused some issues had it already been snowy. We did the winter oasis package and added on a day pass so that we could enjoy the spa all day. From the moment we arrived,... More

The view was just beautiful down by the private hot tubs, very relaxing. We did the Winter Oasis package, massage therapist did awesome! Massages were great, we were relaxed and rejuvenated at the end. The only thing I wished they did differently was maybe provide a thicker robe for the cold seasons. Other wise staff and service were great, we... More

We were lucky enough to get a reservation for the "Winter Oasis" couples package. After an hour long, open air hot tub soak in the clean mountain air overlooking part of the Pisgha National Forest, we had the most relaxing dry brushing and deep tissue massage. This is so relaxing!

The property is gorgeous. The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxing. We watched the leaves fall while we soaked in our private, outdoor hot tub before being led to a couples massage. We may need to make this our every-year anniversary destination!

Ok so my husband and I just visited this spa and maybe had to high of expectations. If you have been to Ten Thousand Waves this place just isn't on the same level. Our two major issues were that 1.) the waiting area between services is ridiculously small and uncomfortable - you are hanging out in your robe waiting while... More

My wife and I were visiting Asheville and decided to try a couples massage. We booked the "Double The Fun" couples massage package and LOVED every minute of it! The private hot tub was amazing, the sauna was wonderful, and the massage was too good to describe! They provide everything you need to shower on site (the scents are fantastic)... More
