Our Top Asheville Spa Picks for Groups (Especially Girls’ Getaways!)

1. Sauna House

Sauna House, Asheville

Best spa in Asheville to just hang, relax, and chill

The DeetsSauna House is a Nordic-style bathhouse filled with natural light, beautiful plants, and clean designs.  It is the perfect place to chill.

Sauna House promotes the “Hot, Cold, Relax” method. That means you sauna for about 15 minutes, take a plunge in the cold pool, chill on the heated furniture, and repeat. 

Feeling extra chill? Massages and foot soaks are also available.

You can also reserve the full facility exclusively for your group during special hours!

Enjoy 3 hours of private access for up to 15 people. You can opt to upgrade to add massages, too. You can even bring your own food and tasty beverages (no glass allowed).

Visit their website for details and inquire early. Reservations go fast!

2. Mobile Massage by Asheville Wellness Tours

Mobile Massage

Relax at your vacation rental & we’ll bring the spa day to you!

The Deets: At Asheville Wellness Tours, we offer mobile massage treatments, which are oh-so-perfect for large groups.

Forget about the hassle of trying to find a spa that will fit a party of 15 and then getting everyone out the door on time!

We can send multiple therapists so your relaxation doesn’t have to take up a full day. Your therapist brings massage tables, linens, lotions, oil, and music. All you have to do is relax!

Logistics: Minimum group size is 4. For parties larger than 4, we’ll send a team of therapists to maximize your time. Locations further than 10 miles from downtown Asheville include an additional travel fee.

Enjoy a massage at home in Asheville!

3. Wake Foot Sanctuary

Best for reconnecting while relaxing

The Deets: Wake Foot Sanctuary is great for groups because you can book out the full foot soak room with a relatively small group. It’s also conducive to bonding and hanging out with each other in a way that a spa with individual treatment rooms doesn’t allow. You can chat, have tea, soak your soles, and still enjoy a massage of your head, neck, arms, legs, feet.

We also love that each participant can choose their own soak “blend” so there’s plenty of room for individual curation within the group environment.

Logistics: Groups of up to 8 can book out the space, while larger groups are also welcome.

Wondering which spa is best for your group? Let’s schedule a call and we’ll help you choose based on your group size and travel style!

4. The Stable Spa at Horseshoe Farm

A peaceful, rural oasis for an iconic Asheville day spa experience

The Deets: Stable Spa is hands down the best option for groups seeking a traditional spa day in the Asheville area!

Only 30ish minutes from downtown, it’s well worth the drive to be surrounded by serene landscapes and sink into a day of relaxation together. There’s even an energy vortex in the middle of the spa, plus large barn doors that open so you can invite the healing power of nature and fresh air into every experience.

Craft your own mini-retreat with add-ons like private yoga classes, sound immersion, or a cacao ceremony and choose from a menu of enhancements to up-level your massage or holistic treatment of choice.

From the Stable Spa: “Pamper yourself in the luxury of our eclectic, whimsical converted horse barn. Surrounded by sweeping pastures, distant mountains and the occasional crow of a rooster, The Stable Spa has a simple approach to bring ‘life on a ranch’ into your spa retreat. From the moment you enter the Stable Spa, you will experience a state of bliss and tranquility, as our goal is to center you in the stability of our serene space.”

Sounds just right to us! You?

5. The Asheville Salt Cave

Unique and perfect for simple group relaxation

The Deets: The Asheville Salt Cave is loved by locals and tourists alike. It is a nature-inspired salt cave in the heart of downtown Asheville, featuring an enriched microclimate, which allows the body and mind to gain relaxation, balance, & healing. We often get asked, what do you do in the cave? You do not have to do anything to receive the benefits. Sit back, close your eyes, relax and breathe.

Logistics: The Asheville Salt Cave also offers massage services and a delightful Hammam spa experience. Private cave sessions or Yoga in the Cave are available for groups.

How We Can Help: Schedule a Private Group Yoga class in the cave or book a private session for your crew as part of a custom itinerary. Even better, plan a romantic getaway in Asheville to enjoy the cave together!

8. The Spa at the Grove Park Inn
