After visiting Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Park and other endless attractions in San Francisco, a rejuvenating stay in one of the spa hotels across the Californian city will sort you out. From Chinatown to Fisherman’s Wharf, Mission Direct to Tenderloin, here’s our pick of the best.
Located in Nob Hill, a glamorous area of San Francisco on the edge of downtown, the Huntington Hotel blends the beauty of Singapore Straits Chinese heritage and design with modern Californian sensibilities. The hotel, complete with a fine-dining restaurant, also features a three-level spa with a Zen relaxation room and indoor infinity pool. Built as a sanctuary, the spa’s many saunas and rooms give guests the chance to unwind and truly relax after (or before) a day in the city.
Just over the Golden Gate Bridge in the small city of Sausalito, Cavallo Point is a luxurious oasis just 10 minutes from San Francisco. Along with the hotel’s deluxe accommodations and sweeping views of the water, Cavallo Point also offers guests many spa treatments, including more than a dozen types of massage, salt scrubs and other healing activities. Not your average spa menu, the hotel also provides the opportunity to receive acupuncture and guided hypnotherapy.
