About Watercourse Way

Watercourse Way opened its doors in Palo Alto, Calif., in 1980. Inspired by the natural hot springs of Tassajara, a tranquil zen retreat in Carmel Valley. Experience the serenity of one of our private hot tub rooms with steam or sauna. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage, hot stone massage, rejuvenating facial or luxurious spa treatment such as the Champagne Chocolate treatment.

The Watercourse Way experience

For more than 35 years, Watercourse Way has provided its clients a serene, private experience like no other. We want your visit to be relaxing and unique, so our facility does not include crowded locker rooms or communal hot tubs. Instead, our award-winning spa features exquisitely designed private hot tub and massage rooms that offer our clients a charming, peaceful respite. Groups are encouraged to reserve our “connecting” hot tub rooms (Eight Stars and Nine Bats), and we always offer one hour or 90-minute couples massages, perfect for couples or friends.
