Remède Spa San Francisco, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star luxury spa located in The St. Regis San Francisco hotel, will automatically add a 20-percent service fee to your bill, so if you feel this amount is sufficient gratuity for your therapist the only person you’ll have to pay is the spa receptionist.
That said, you can of course add additional gratuity if you’re particularly pleased with your treatment; conversely, you can also reduce or completely remove the service charge, but you’ll be certainly be wading into somewhat awkward waters if you do.
If you’d rather tip your therapist in person you’re welcome to do so. But while the vast majority of treatments are performed by only one person, some — such as the Four Hand Massage — require an additional therapist's attention. In that case, be sure to tip both.
