We take extraordinary measures to limit the spread of COVID. Those receiving spa services must be fully vaccinated. Beginning September 1, there will be vaccination requirements for hot tubs, lodging, and izanami as well. Please see current offerings for details of our policies. Keep up with changes by signing up for our newsletter .
Some of the messaging in the US maintains that masking is a personal decision. This denies the fact that pandemics are by definition a collective problem. Face masks have been proven to greatly diminish transmission of COVID and we support their use at Ten Thousand Waves.
All staff and guests--regardless of vaccination status--are required to wear a facemask. Exceptions:
- When actively eating or drinking at izanami
- When alone with your party in a private hot tub suite
- When receiving a facial
- When maintaining social distance outdoors in the Grand Bath
