The thought of being in nature in a hot tub setting is definitely a wonderful experience. However I suggest just getting a cabin in the mountains would be much more affordable. This was a Girls Trip and although we had a fabulous time I don't think its really worth the $60 price tag.

My husband and I were staying at the Grove Park Inn and could not get in the spa there so we booked a couples massage with Shoji which I found an ad for in a NC magazine in our hotel room. I am so glad now that we had to look elsewhere for a massage as it truly was most... More

Shoji was such a relaxing retreat. It is perfect for someone by themselves, a girl's getaway or for couples. My girlfriends and I enjoyed the sauna and an hour in one of the outdoor private hot tubs. We were surrounded by peace and quiet with a view of the mountain range in the distance. The spa was very clean and... More

My daughter and I recently enjoyed a relaxing soak at Shoji. We arrived in the late afternoon and enjoyed a beautiful sunset from our tub. When we needed some cooling relief we could either stretch out on the cool wooden deck around the tub or get really refreshed in the cold plunge. After our tub time was over it was... More

Shoji is very close to town, but feels like your miles away at the top of a mountain. After showering with their wonderful products and stepping into a robe and slippers I was ready for the Shoji experience. The water temperature was perfect, and although a busy Saturday, it felt peaceful and quiet. The sauna and cold plunge made for... More

I had a really nice time at Shoji Retreats recently. It's at the top of a mountain and so quiet and peaceful. The facility was very nicely laid out, very clean and zen like. We had a beautiful view from our tub and we were lucky that the weather was perfect, not a cloud in the sky and sunny! As... More

And that's coming from my best friend who lives in Senegal now and insists on going to Shoji when she visits me in AVL every few years. Both of us have traveled the world for work and have visited spas on almost every continent. The welcome was warm and pleasant, the zen like atmosphere soothing, and the hot tubs sparkling... More

The Japanese spa treat experience is excellent. Beautiful setting reminiscent of the mountains of japan. Over looks the blue ridge parkway. It’s very peaceful quiet setting. All the staff is young, beautiful, and always ready to serve with a smile. The tubs have great privacy in the forest setting and are heated to perfection. Over night accommodations in top floors...

I had such a great experience at Shoji retreats. After an all day drive from the coast, it was great to soak in the hot tub and enjoy the sauna. The entire facility was beautiful and the staff was great, especially Jordan at the front desk. I cant wait to come back for a massage when we have more time.
