Location is everything and San Francisco’s Spa Vitale certainly maximizes its scenic assets. Situated among the spectacular views of the quintessential San Francisco cityscape, Spa Vitale boasts a Penthouse rooftop where clients enjoy the spa’s luxurious and very popular “signature bathing ritual”. The outdoor bathtubs are well enclosed and protected by a bamboo garden. Nearby city sights of places such as The Ferry Building, the Bay Bridge, Treasure Island, Alcatraz, and the beautiful downtown cityscape are all part of the urban landscape that makes Spa Vitale the quintessential urban oasis.
Housed at Hotel Vitale, which is part of the Joie de Vivre hotel group of boutique properties, Spa Vitale is ensconced in the historic Embarcadero district. The waterfront hotel boasts the proximity of the Pacific Ocean, San Francisco Bay, and natural California sunshine.
Patrons experience the luxury soak bath in outdoor tubs surrounded by the natural beauty of a lush bamboo garden. The mixture of urban and natural beauty is all part of the oasis spa experience available at Spa Vitale. In addition to the signature bath ritual, customers can choose to indulge in more tranquility services to enhance their mind-body wellness. Not only are the signature baths a soothing hydrotherapy treatment, they are an ideal choice for stressed out urban professionals unable to get away from the city for R&R beyond a few hours.
Spa Vitale also offers the following treatments in addition to their signature rooftop hydrotherapy baths:

Classic-Swedish Massage is the most common and best known type of massage. It involves long, fluid strokes of muscles and tissues with pressure that varies from light to medium. This type of massage is considered to be one of the most relaxing styles.Our licensed massage therapists will adjust the pressure according to your sensitivity and preference.
Deep Tissue Massage: is designed to relieve pain and muscle tension throughout the body. This type of massage is extremely beneficial because it reaches the deepest layer of muscles, fascia (connective tissue surrounding the joints) and tendons. The goal in deep tissue massage is to breakdown adhesions (tense areas within the muscle). Adhesions in the muscle are very important to address because they cause pain, inflammation and limit motion of the muscles and joints.
