My husband and I stayed at Shoji in the Studio and also had the "Best Buddha's Couple Package" for our 10th anniversary. The studio was quite clean, comfortable, and spacious in the living room. The bedroom is at the roof so the walls are slanted, but as this was clearly stated on the website we weren't surprised; we actually loved... More

This is a great romantic outing for a special occasion when you don't mind spending a little extra. We got a special that included an hour in the hot tub and sauna and cold plunge pool. We were advised to alternate 15 minutes in the sauna and hot tub, then sauna and hot tub. In February it was much too... More

Came to Shoji at the recommendation of a friend. Such a lovely place! Beautifully tucked into the Smoky Mountains. Hot tub, cold dip, and sauna felt great! Will definitely be back!

I went with a group of friends for our annual girls' weekend. It was great being able to all sit in the suana and the hot tub together. It was the first spa I had ever been to with a cold plunge, so that was interesting. The surroundings were beautiful and relaxing. I thought it was funny that my first... More

Worst Spa experience I have ever had! Soak in a hot tub that has so much Chlorine it burns your eyes, and skin! Then after an hour if that, (which you should not sit in hot tub that long) you wait freezing standing in front if desk clerk, because they do not have cozy spa like sitting area. Community shower,... More

Shoji was the highlight of our Asheville visit. We visited Asheville for five days to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. There are a number of spas in and around Asheville (part of the Asheville mystique for a relatively small city), but in doing extensive web research, I came to the conclusion that Shoji was the place. While we stayed at... More

What a nice way to relax -- in your personal hot tub overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. Spa services are available, but I just enjoyed soaking in the warm water, stepping out to cool off in the chilly autumn air and enjoying the view. It's a very peaceful experience, tucked away in the mountain.

Beautiful place! Very kind staff, beautiful views and a great getaway. We had couples massage with Ashton and Cricket and these girls are wonderful!!! Both of us were very pleased with the massage and never were uncomfortable or made to feel anything more than awesome. We will definitely go back and spend our time and money with these folks! Just... More

My friends and I went to Shoji during an Asheville girls weekend. This spa is nestled in the woods and is a most amazing experience. We soaked in the private hot tub with a beautiful view while enjoying their gorgeous and delicious tea service. After the soak we each had massages that were fantastic. We had purchased a summer package... More
