Treat oneself like a prince, or a princess, at Frogs Hot Tubs, Fairfax

Hot tubbing. It’s classic Marin. The only thing that might be more Marin than hot tubs is environmental activism. But when it’s not easy being green, activists—and others—head over to Frogs.

Frogs Hot Tubs is nestled in the heart of Marin County and is one of its best-kept secrets. This unique public facility is a 1970s-style sanctuary of calm that has offered Marinites a truly relaxing experience for the past 32 years. Past patrons include celebrities like band members from Guns N’ Roses, and Wavy Gravy.

Frogs Hot Tubs is not a typical spa. The establishment includes a community hot tub and a clothing-optional sundeck, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere for socializing, unwinding and immersing oneself in tranquility. After soaking in the warmth, guests can take a refreshing dip in the cold-plunge pool, designed to rejuvenate the senses.

For a more intimate experience, one or more guests can rent one of the two private, outdoor hot tubs, where solitude meets serenity.

Adding to the heat and relaxation, the spa features the Bay Area’s hottest saunas, at over 180 degrees Fahrenheit. In these calming spaces, stress dissipates.

In line with current health safety regulations, all guests are kindly requested to show their vaccine cards to gain entry. This is part of Frogs Hot Tubs’ commitment to ensuring a safe and secure environment for its guests.

To experience this haven of relaxation during the day or under the stars, guests are encouraged to call 415.453.7647 to book a reservation for the hot tubs and sauna. Frogs Hot Tubs is open seven days a week, from noon to 10:30pm.

Discover the magic of Frogs Hot Tubs, a unique oasis in Marin County. It’s more than a spa—it’s a community, a retreat and a place of ultimate relaxation.
