Once you walk in they have hot tea bags and you have a selection of loose tea to put in it. They also have water. The salt room was very relaxing and they have salt rocks you can put on your body also.

After my first visit to the Asheville Salt Cave, I'd been looking forward to getting back there. It took longer to get back than I intended but I made it my first stop on this trip. It was such an amazing way to start the trip. From the minute you enter, you are invited to water or tea and the... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed individual 90 minute massages followed by a 45 minute session in the salt cave. We enjoyed every second! The staff were really skilled, attentive, professional and gentle. The pricing was great: we got way more for our money than at nearby luxury spas. We'll definitely be back!

I'm so glad that this place exists. When you go, do not expect a natural cave. It is located on the side of a parking garage on Eagle Street - if you didn't know it was there you may completely miss it. It is more like a small yoga studio with the room completely covered in salt from floor to... More

Perhaps naively I thought this was going to be a natural attraction, which is why I was surprised it was in the downtown area. Also the photos are strategically taken to make the room (not cave) look significantly larger than it is. However it was relaxing and indeed an experience.

We stopped in for a little shopping. Everyone was reasonably priced with some interesting options but staff was not very friendly. Would not visit again.

We drove from another state to visit for my birthday. We had read about this attraction online and had brought my young grandson with us due to the claims of medicinal benefits it can offer for children. There are pictures online of children in the salt cave playing. There is no mention of restrictions or special days of the week... More

I am sorry that you drove for a visit and we were unable to accommodate you. As we are extremely busy these days, it is recommended to make an appointment ahead of your visit, in which we would have shared this information. On our website in a few different places it does share about our child sessions and how they... More

Saw this advertised on social media and knew that I wanted to give it a try. We made an appoint for a visit into the salt cave and massage. Although I was skeptical about the cave itself, it was amazing once we got in and got settled. I didn't find it cold at all although some in our group did.... More

Great experience. Upon entering salt cave there is crushed salt on ground, large salt chunks on wall and reclining chairs and blankets and big pillows if you want to lay down. We were told of the history of the salt cave and where the salt came from and then relaxed and meditated. The lights were dimmed and music played and... More
