The Shoji Spa & Lodge Story

Shoji Spa & Retreat Started…

Shoji Spa & Retreats has been a women-owned and operated business since its conception by Roberta Jordan in 2006. Based on ancient ideas of health and wellness from hydrotherapy, Shoji Spa was born from Roberta’s travel to Japan and appreciation for the culture’s emphasis on wellness. Today, Shoji Spa & Retreat represents the Western Hemisphere’s best Japanese style spa experience, deeply nestled within the beautiful and healing Blue Ridge Mountains and Pisgah National Forest, yet minutes from Downtown Asheville.

First-Hand Shoji Experiences

Had a hour soak and hour and a half massage. Experience was nice and so relaxing! Con: chatting outside the private soak from client therapist interaction didn't facilitate the privacy feeling. Pro: the massage (with clay mask) was one of the best I've had in a while.

I've never had an experience quite like this. On their website they talk about experiencing the hot tubs in the rain, I thought that was a bunch of nonsense, I could not have been more wrong. My fiance and I went there on our anniversary for some relaxation, let me be the first to say it's an incredible experience. Not only extremely relaxing but immensely satisfying and peaceful. Somehow experiencing it in the rain makes it even better it is the perfect activity to relax and recharge with someone you love I cannot thank you enough Shoji Spa and retreat
