Lovely, relaxing experience. It was a birthday gift and he so enjoyed it. We did the outdoor salt bath and the cold showers, fantastic combo. We’re definitely going to do it again! Staff was friendly and accommodating.

Such a beautiful spa! It’s nestled in the woods, and the hot tubs are all private that overlook the woods. The atmosphere snd energy is just so relaxing and romantic, my partner and I loved it. They offer different packages depending on what you’re looking for. I’d highly recommend the experience!

It was a peaceful and pretty property. We booked an hour in the hot tub. Lovely. And then did massage chairs. Once we were properly adjusted, it was an hour of bliss. I would have liked to dial back a little bit of the pressure on my legs but that's ok. It was so worth it. I zoned out for sure! Then our meditation and nap ... That was a surprise for us-- better than we expected. It was r very relaxing. We will be back!

We enjoyed our time at Shoji very much, and found it very relaxing. I personally did not do the massage chair (wife loved it) - because I have bad experiences with mechanical massages.The spa was my favorite part. Secluded, quiet, and peaceful. The garden and landscaping was unbelievable. All of the staff was very friendly and masked up, which was appreciated.It was not nearly as expensive as you might think for a truly unique experience. I would return here regularly if I lived closer. Thank you!

This is one of the best and the closest authentic style of a Asian culture of a Asian spa for rejuvenation relaxation and a great place to rekindle things with your loved one. To get away from life itself this brings you back to nature like no other spa place I have come across. You must take a visit see for yourself whether for a day or weekend and especially at one of their private rooms you will come back a very new person with clarity and focus.

I booked my sister and her fiancee a hot tub soak and massages. The hot tub was a unique experience that they were excited for. They enjoyed the shower and privacy, however after about 30-40 minutes in the tub they got an electrical shock a couple times and got out. The employees claimed that maybe an animal had gotten under it and apologized then told them to wait for 30 minutes till their massages and gave them a cup of water. I gave the review 2 stars because they both really enjoyed their massages but we're shaken because of what happened in the tub. After the massages they even bought a Tshirt as a souvenir. When they told me I was very upset because this was not a cheap gift, they missed out on the the full time in the tub and were upset about being shocked. The spa did nothing to compensate for the bad experience, not even give them a free Tshirt. I understand that these things can unfortunately happen but they should have done something to make the situation right....Update: The spa did contact me and apologize again for what happened, they didn't know about the length of the bad experience. They have rectified the problem and compensated perfectly. I have updated to a 4 star because although they had a bad moment it was overall a great experience.

Shoji Spa is a one of a kind gem located just outside of Asheville proper. A delightfully peaceful oasis, conveniently tucked in to the mountains. The staff was warm, gentle, and friendly. The hot tub was private, but opened up on the side to a beautiful wooded view. Don't let a chance of rain deter you, it actually felt incredible to sip my hot tea and feel the light rain while in the tub. Next I visited the massage chair. Oh my, the massage chair! I have not been that relaxed in a 3 hour timeframe in many years. I will definitely be gifting this experience to others and be returning myself.

I had the absolute best time at the end of July. The atmosphere, vibe, aesthetic is EVERYTHING! I’m not really an outdoorsy person (bugs) but I enjoyed the hot tub. Cain was my massage therapist, and that was one of the best massages I’ve ever had. It was worth every penny and I’m going back for my birthday Labor Day weekend. 10/10 recommend!

We stayed for the weekend to celebrate our 10 year Anniversary. The accommodation were excellent...loved that shower! Erik and Amanda gave us our couples massage. One of the best massages we both have ever had.
This place was amazing! I loved the theme. It’s a quiet, remote getaway and exactly what I needed. Ask for Steve. He worked out each and every knot and all of my achy muscles from my head to my toes. He has talented fingers.

Manager Shanon went above and beyond to accommodate us. There was mix up with the scheduling due to system being down. Shanon made me forget how the associate tried to dismiss me by making sure we were serviced properly. I traveled from SC for a surprise birthday retreat. Elizabeth did a great job with full body massage, I highly recommend her! The private bath house was intimate and relaxing. I wish we had more time to experience all they have to offer. The experience was peaceful to say the least.

Jimmy and I are literally floating after our Shoji Japanese spa experience in the trees. I haven't felt this good in 30 years lol. After a fabulous jet powered soak in a private hot tub in the trees, (with a lovely tea and rice cookies served) cooling off in between with cold rain shower, a homemade orange blossom coconut scrub, followed by a phenomenal 60 min deep tissue massage (mine was by Alex- who was phenomenal, and should get a raise! - Jimmy had Ashley and he said she was perfect!. ) The BEST part of our vacation! Trea yourself to this AH-MAZING spaexperience!I love Asheville NC!!! ❤️

Madeline and Steve handled our zen massage and it was amazing. I couldn’t say enough good things. I’d recommend at least a 90min tub soak to truly take advantage of all of the facilities.

Relaxing, peaceful, spa experience facing the private Blue Ridge Parkway Forest. The facility was clean, calm, and super professional providing all the amenities you needed to enjoy a remote spa experience with ease and comfort. We went in July, and the hot tub experience was relaxing and perfect. We got in and out as much as we wanted during our time and had full access to use any of the other facilities to include the sauna, outdoor showers to cool off, or any of the decks to lounge and meditate. After we recieced massages in a cool relaxing atmosphere in the top of the facility.Just a heads up, this place is close to Asheville but it feels remote and the drive up the mountain to get there is exactly that...a drive up a mountain. It might get a little tricky at points but it's worth it!We will be coming back!

Nice relaxing visit. We felt a bit awkward in the outdoor shower doing the exfoliation scrub, but it was still fun. You just have to hold a short chain to get the water to run which is difficult it you are short, and the oily salt scrub adds a level of difficulty.Nothing that can't be overcome with a sense of humor.

Absolutely one of the best massages I’ve ever had in my life, thank you Monica! I brought my girlfriend, my brother and his wife. All who said the same, BEST massage! I absolutely recommend this place. Very cool and Zen ambience. We did the package which included the hot tub for an hour and massage for an hour. Unfortunately they were doing some noisy work next to us which was a little disturbing but management made it right and I truly appreciate everyone there. If I ever go back to Asheville I will 100% go back to shoji and ask for Monica.

My wife and i had a delightfully memorable experience yesterday. The facility is unique, a mountain retreat look with a zen garden vibe. The staff is very helpful and caring and guides you through the process. Sanitation and hygiene is top notch. Having a designated area to change into provided robe and slippers is a nice touch.The skill, and attention we received for our massage was as good as it gets.A sauna and complete shower facility is nice to clean up before departing.We will go here every time we visit Asheville

Enjoyed Shoji Spa very much! Only item of concern was the private tub soak was not very private as another couple just opened the door and tried to get in the same private outdoor tub as us. When we told them it was private they left and closed the door. So not sure if better directions for other visitors need to be provided or if better monitoring of hot tub areas need to be adjusted. Other than this everything was great. Thank you.

This was such an ejection out of the matrix. Staff greeted us with our totes that includes our robes, sandals & a towel. We were shown to the bathroom where we were required prior to our soak. Next we were shown how to access our private bath house. We went at the end of March & the temp was about 50 which I was weary of. Turns out, the colder weather was absolutely perfect. There's no way I'd do that in the warmer months. We soaked for 1 hour. The opening to nature was everything. Afterwards we did the massage chairs which again, I was weary of. But OMG. There are few times I've had such deep sleep & relaxation & this was one of those times. They offer an eye mask & ear plugs but we didn't need them. There was another couple who came in while we were there but I have no clue when they came. I was that relaxed. Afterwards, we laid on this bed where it was warmed. We laid under this weighted blanket and there was some sort of vibrating massage thing. We turned that off bc it really didn't do much. Heads up, it's very windy on the drive up the mountain & the road is really only meant for 1 car. Also, parking can be a bit of hassle but trust, once you're in there it's ALL worth it.

You are supplied a towel, sandals and a robe with a tote bag.For the salt hydrotherapy tub soak I highly recommend bringing a bottle of water to sip on!! I went in February, even though it was ~ 40 degrees I still had a great time and remained warm!I was skeptical of the massage chair ... but it was absolutely amazing!! I was completely relaxed and dozed off.The staff was very welcoming & pleasant - highly recommend!!!For this package I paid $198 + $39.6 (20% gratuity fee)

First visit at Shoji and will definitely not be my last. Booked a 60-minute soaking tub experience (beverage add-ons available) and enjoyed the additional amenities of the spa, including cold showers, sauna, and outdoor lounge. Soaking tub (#2) located along the lower pathway; did not hear any other parties/guests. Setting was beautifully secluded; couldn't have asked for a better reward after a week of hiking.

We had the best experience at Shoji Spa & Resort. We stayed two nights in the House of Earth and enjoyed the Buddha’s Best spa package. The accommodations were tranquil to say the least! Incredibly comfortable sleeping arrangements with everything we could need waiting for us in the room. The private tub soak was beyond relaxing, paired with the awasu massage (BOOK AMANDA, she was magical!), and finished off with quite the relaxing sensory experience in the shavasanah room. If you are looking for a relaxing, romantic weekend look no further than Shoji!

Shoji is such a hidden gem. The prices are incredibly reasonable and a soak is so much more affordable than pretty much any service from a traditional spa. It's a magical location and you cannot hear anything from the tubs. It feels so peaceful and secluded. This is always a treat.

What a wonderful retreat for finding healing and stillness amongst the mountains and fall foliage just outside downtown Asheville. We visited in late October for my birthday, and stayed in the Mother of Earth lodge (highly recommend) and enjoyed two tub soaks, a couple’s massage, and the savasana retreat across two days. All were awe inspiring and peaceful experiences, made even better by kind, calm, generous Shoji staff. The savasana retreat is a great add-on after a tub soak— those infrared and gemstone mats! Wow! And tub soaks (including the outdoor cold showers!) and massage are definite musts. Thanks, Shoji!

The couples salt spa with tea was really nice. The front desk attendant was so sweet and accommodating. We had a big truck so parking was a little stressful but would be easy for a regular sized car. The drive up was wild.

I go to a lot of spas, especially ones with soaking tubs. I would rate this one as average. The private tub itself was nice. Good sized tubs and private space, nice woodsy view. But it didn't feel very secluded. We were placed in one of the 2 private tubs near to the reception area which may have affected my experience. While it wasn't noisy with the bubbles on the tub running, you could hear people talking and moving around if you turned them off. When soaking, I sometimes just want silence and that wasn't really possible here. There were people sitting right outside our tub area, too, which did not make us feel secluded or private in our space. If you are lucky enough to get a tub space down the hill, I think the experience would be much better.The cold shower and hot sauna included in your experience are shared with the other tubs and we would have had to walk out of the tub area and across the reception area (with people sitting around waiting for their service) to get to them. Meaning we would have had to dry off+ put on robes to move between the areas which feels like a lot. it also just doesn't feel super spa like or relaxing to me to have to walk past the waiting area in my robe on repeat (I've been to places where each tub area has a private cold shower and private dry sauna.. now that is amazing!).We paid for a tub side tea service but it was never brought to us. They did refund our money for that service without any hassle and apologized, but we were still sad to have missed this piece of the experience.Finally, we did a "salt scrub" service after our soak. I would not do this again as I didn't think it was worth the money. They give you a small plastic container of oily salt and one of soap and send you off to the showers on your own. We were not given any instructions - just motioned where to go. I was not totally sure how to apply it ... Do I get wet first? Apply to dry skin? Leave it on for a few minutes? etc. Some instruction would have been nice. Also, the showers there require that you pull down on a string to make them run. So you only have one hand to wipe off your oily-salt. It was not super relaxing.The biggest issue I found is the size of their bath/shower/locker rooms. It is entirely too small for the number of people coming and going and does not generate a relaxed, spa-like vibe. There are no lockers to store your items so you have to carry them around with you. There is only ONE bathroom/toilet for all guests and staff and only TWO showers (one shower area with a curtain forming it into two spaces) and TWO very small changing areas. The place was crowded and there was a line for the bathroom every time I was in there. I felt rushed to take a shower before my service instead of being able to enjoy it and felt rushed again getting dressed at the end.If I come back, I would probably opt just for a tub soak and come prepared to dress in my tub area at the end of my allotted time.

Stayed at the house of earth. It was amazing! The spa treatments were very relaxing as well. You could also go to the sauna during private tub soak time

My wife and I went to Shoji for our anniversary and experienced the tubs and massages. Cain was my massage therapist and he was fantastic. He was informative, communicative, and professional. He listened to my needs and focused on the areas I asked him to, and because of that, it was the best massage I’ve ever had.

It was nice to relax with my partner here at Shoji. The staff was friendly and courteous and they took care to ensure they were taking all precautions with COVID-19. I highly recommend booking an experience here.

My massage therapist, Monica, was amazing. Her style puts you in a state of deep relaxation and she told me about some stretches to help my tight neck and shoulders. Ashley massaged my friend and helped relieve some of her chronic neck pain. The atmosphere was so relaxing and I felt safe due to the hygiene procedures at the salon. We also stayed at the resort and it was quiet, clean and a very Zen atmosphere.

I had been wanting to come here for a while. I couldn’t have made a better choice by choosing to come on my wedding anniversary weekend. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Me and my husband got one of the package deals. It seems it’s best to book a month in advance if you want a hand massage. We booked late and had to settle for the chair massage. The chairs literally massage you from head to toe. I honestly prefer a massage by a therapist ,but I will say our bodies seemed to find it relaxing because we both fell asleep in the chair. Our favorite part was probably relaxing in the hot tub. Looking forward to coming again during fall season. We truly enjoy our experience!
