Best Service Anywhere – I just wanted to say that the staff at The Kura Door is amazing. My fiance and I went in the other day and there was a mixup with our reservation, it was not in the system. We were originally told that we would be unable to do all the treatments we had wanted to do, two massages, an Okura bath, a reflexology treatment and a hair treatment. They were only able to do the massages and the bath. After our massages your staff managed to get everything arranged to get us the services we had requested! We were also given a discount for the mistake, a tea service and chocolates with our bath. What was originally a bit of a let down turn out to a wonderful experience and a exceptional show of service. We will definitely return to The Kura Door and recommend it to all of our friends.
Beautiful Spa – The Japanese idea of the spa is great and it's beautiful inside. They are very courteous and professional. I had the facial which was nice but there was nothing special about it. I paid close to $100, and didn't feel the service equaled the price. It's really expensive there. Parking is a drag sometime.
Wonderful facials!!! – I have been a facial buff for almost 10 years now, and they have the BEST facials here! I used to go to Breathe, but the services have dropped severely. I decided to try the Kura Door, and it was AWESOME!!!
I love the Arcona products they use, and they didn't pressure me into buying anything while I was there. I highly recommend the rejuvenation facial. It's pricey, but your skin will look amazing later. Even the regular Yin/Yang facial is awesome. I also enjoyed the Sake pedicure, although I do not care so much for the pedicure room. I have not had a massage here yet, but you get so much massage during your facial I'm sure the massages are awesome. The only complaint I have is I don't like the changing rooms. It is not very private. I am not very into the undressed people walking around. They also don't have the best refreshments, and they never have sugar for their tea. All in all, I recommend the Kura Door if you want a good facial. I especially recommend Isis or Angela as aestheticians!
best couple retreat !!!! – we whent there for our 6 month anyversary and we love !!!! everything it was so nice and clean, place is so traditional really Japanese style a loved they let you use the relax room much you want , they ofer you a traditional tea from japan, they have a sauna for everyone to use really nice and excelent massage we love it.realy higth recomended
Great couples package – My boyfriend and I treated ourselves to the couples package for our two year anniversary and it was the best spa/massage experience I've ever had. We had never been there before and everyone I spoke with from makeing the appointment to arriving at the spa and through out the entire experience was so nice and helpful. I had never been to a japanese style spa before and the tea service was wonderful, we found a new favorite tea. But with out a doubt the thing that set our experience apart from other places we've been was the bath. What a perfect way to relax together and loosen up your muscles for a great massage. We shared a room for our massage and it was wonderful. I would definatly go back over and over. Also they have appointment times later in the evening so scheduling was really easy
I love the Kura door. I have been going here for years and always rave about it. I have done massages and facials only and love both but especially the yin facial. I love the atmosphere and the delicious smell, the tea and infused water and the figs and almonds. the staff has always been wonderful and I leave feeling fabulous and promising I will come back more often. It is located in the aves so parking is scarce but I've always found room on the street nearby. I adore this spa.
best bath ever! – I came to the Kura door for my birthday this year with my husband. We had the couple's ofuro bath and couple's massage. It was SO relaxing and romantic. It was the highlight of my birthday! I can't wait to go back! The bath is so relaxing and the teas they serve are delicious. The massage therapist I had was very very good too! I was impressed!
they take green to an extreme - and that's no good!!! – So I definitely feel the be good to our planet vibe - but give me a break!!! When I schedule a pedicure all the bells and whistles are great, but at the end I want a fabulous paint job. This "environmentally friendly" nail polish is a total disaster - it is thick and gooey and doesn't wear well at all. And the staff's personality and attention to customer service isn't much better. So I will continue to recycle and invest in wind energy - but when I want a pedicure I'll go someplace where giving a good pedicure and treating customers well is actually their goal. Trust me and skip this place.......it isn't worth the many $$$$'s you shell out for totally inadequate service
Great Spa, just a few things I would change.... – I went with two of my wonderful friends to get hour long massages. We all got the Kura massage. The atmosphere was very nice. Our apointment was right on time. We arrived 20 minutes early (which is a must and is recomended on thier website) to fill out paperwork, leave our shoes at the door, put on our spa shoes and change into a robe. There is a sauna, a tea room where you can relax and chat, a meditation room and a steam room. The steam room was ok but it could have been bigger. It would have been nice if it had been easier to find the essential oils that you can use in the steam room and the button to turn it on. Also be aware that the sauna, steam room and two waiting areas are co-ed. Shortly after changing and enjoying some water we each were taken for our massages. I loved my massage, the atmosphere was wonderful, my massuse was great. I loved the hot towels that were used and being able to pick the scent of my massage lotion (it is in the tea room so I recomend picking one before getting too cozy). We all agreed the massages were wonderful. After we were going to relax in the steam room but since we were a group of three and one person was in there we didn't fit so we went into the sauna. Later we went in the steam room once it was empty. There was only one other thing that could have been improved upon was there was only one shower. All in all I loved my experiance at the Kura Door and would recomend it to others.
Very Unprofessional Business Management – To be honest I have never used the services at the spa but my experience with them has been less then professional. I applied for a job with them and had an interview scheduled. I live in So. Utah and drove up for my interview. Upon arrival for my interview I was informed that the person interviewing went home ill and was rescheduled for another day. No call or contact informing me about the cancelled interview. I understand things happen. Drove back to So. Utah and the day before my rescheduled interview I received a call informing me that the position had been filled. I could not believe it. The rude way I was treated just by applying for a job at the spa makes me never want to support them. I only hope that they treat there guests better then I was treated. I will never forget this experience and hope all who plan on working at the spa thick twice before they submit there application. Just wanted to share what I feel was a very unprofessional business practice.
