Spa Day at Hotel Vitale


Last Saturday, my friend Sarah and I headed up the highway to San Francisco for a day of fun and relaxation in the city. Since we are only 30ish miles away, we want to make a monthly date of going into the city to explore. Here’s how we spend our first city date – a girls spa day at Hotel Vitale.

Spa Vitale is located on the top floor of the Hotel Vitale in San Francisco. Located right off the Embarcadero, the hotel features sweeping views of the city and the bay.

Once inside the hotel, press the elevator button for floor 8 and walk into tranquil paradise.

I had first seen this spa and the baths from a friend’s Instagram and had to know where this gem was located. Who knew it was a hidden spa on the top of Hotel Vitale?

Sarah and I were first scheduled to experience their bathing ritual located outside the glass doors in the bamboo garden.

The bathing ritual is made for one or two people, where each of you gets your own spa bath.

Surrounding the bath are rose petals, your choice of mimosa or Prosecco, plus freshly cut fruit to munch on. To enhance your experience, add an aromatherapy bath bomb. For my bath, I chose a green apple bomb that turns the water from blue to green.

While soaking in the bath, you can reach over to the salt scrub and exfoliate your body. I am telling you, the whole experience is luxurious!

I ended my day with an aromatherapy massage that was so good I could have fallen asleep on the table.

I chose a rose blend for my aromatherapy and it was diffused while I was massaged and added to a diffuser. The room smelled wonderful and I was easily drifting into deep relaxation the minute I laid on the table.

The whole experience inside the spa was calming and blissful. When I came home that night, I felt recharged and ready to take on the week.

If you are headed up to San Francisco, I highly recommend making a reservation for the bathing ritual. I thought it was such a unique experience and the spa is a little oasis in the big city.
