Kind Words From Our Visitors
“My husband surprised me on our 19th anniversary with a couples massage package at Chozu. We have been here before, as we are locals, and it's a beautiful, restful spot in a quiet part of town. With the package, we had a light lunch of Japanese food in a sweet little dining area with a perfect pot of Jasmine tea. They also offer several saki inspired libations. We had an hour in their private soaking pool where we were able to go in nude. There is also a more 'public' pool and cover ups are provided. After the soak we had massages in separate rooms with very competent masseuses then finished up in the sauna. The whole experience was wonderful and rejuvenating. You can get a massage at various places in Ashland, but you won't find an experience like this. It's a gift to yourself you will reflect on and want to repeat - as we did."
