The epic space also hosts services like life coaching, acupuncture and massage. Plus, they have artisan-made kombucha on tap.

Spas & Salons

Four Seasons Spa

While the Four Seasons known for its luxurious accommodations, the hotel’s spa is an attraction of its own. Choose from a menu of signature treatments like facials and massages, plus specialty services like energy healing and ashiatsu (a therapist stands on your body for muscle relief). Spa guests also get access to the hotel’s outdoor pool on a terrace overlooking the harbor.
