The Spa Above San Francisco

Serene, luxurious and natural, Hotel Vitale is a true urban escape. The boutique hotel is located on San Francisco’s vibrant Embarcadero waterfront, minutes from the downtown business district. But as soon as you step into the elegant lobby and are welcomed by the attentive staff, the world slows down just a bit. A visit to Spa Vitale, located on the top floor of the hotel, is the icing on the cake of relaxation.


With three treatment rooms, two infinity soaking tubs and a bamboo-shrouded rooftop garden, Spa Vitale is a peaceful and romantic destination for both travelers and San Francisco locals. The spa’s small size makes every visit private and customizable, yet what truly sets Spa Vitale apart is its location; convenient to San Francisco’s bustling city center but set above the fray and offering breathtaking views of the waterfront and the Bay Bridge.


Choose an aromatherapy or essential oil treatment to calm your mind and soothe your skin, or indulge in a foot and leg massage to re-energize your body after a long day of strolling up and down San Francisco’s infamous hills.

Spa Vitale’s signature bathing ritual provides an escape from the everyday as you sink into in an infinity tub in the rooftop garden, surrounded by cool towels and cucumbers for your eyes, fresh fruit and tea to enjoy, and a revitalizing salt scrub to use. A 25-minute soak combined with a 50-minute massage is a popular combination that maximizes relaxation. Afterwards, you’ll head home or back to your guest room with a small bag of lavender bath salts.
