Since 1980, Watercourse Way in Palo Alto has been providing weary Silicon Valley residents with a Zen spa experience. Open seven days a week, the bathhouse & spa located in the heart of downtown Palo Alto was designed after Carmel Valley’s Tassajara natural hot springs.
The award-winning Watercourse Way experience centers on relaxation, rejuvenation, and serenity in a private, exclusive setting. The décor has a distinct Asian flair, accentuating its Zen-like atmosphere. Services include massage, skin care and spa treatments, hot tubs, saunas, and cold plunge pools.
Rather than communal dressing areas and hot tubs, there are instead there are eight serene spaces with private hot tubs that encourage spa-goers to decompress and unwind.
The secluded hot tub room amenities include shower, resting area, and hot tub with some also offering saunas and cold plunge pools. Every room is luxuriously decorated with elegant tile work, murals and art pieces, and woodwork to further enhance tranquility and relaxation.
