Known as the Midwest’s top spa, Spa Shiki at The Lodge of Four Seasons delivers a world-class spa experience on the shores of Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks. Spa Shiki’s theme was chosen in honor of Harold Koplar, founder of The Lodge of Four Seasons, who had a passion for Asian culture. The word “shiki” means “four seasons” in Japanese and is a reflection of the resort’s style and mission. Spa Shiki is surrounded by Japanese gardens and koi ponds, that burst of changing colors during each season, bringing tranquility to the visiting guest. The Japanese gardens were created by Buffy Murai who was the landscape architect and caretaker at the Lodge for over 30 years. These traditions carry on today and offer a beautiful backdrop that fits right in to the warm and inviting experience you’ll receive at Spa Shiki.

Reminiscent of a Japanese home, the spa’s entire space is devoted to balancing each visitor’s inner self (chi or energy), and incorporates natural elements to create the perfect environment to escape from it all. Spa Shiki is designed to encourage our guests to slow down, decompress and reflect about themselves, while providing a peaceful, relaxing, fun and unique experience.

Every guest receives personal, five-star service from our team members as soon as they walk through the door. Customizing and continually striving to improve the lives of each guest, our staff provides services that are unique to fit each individual that will far exceed their expectations. The full-service salon and spa offers exclusive treatments, like our Signature Bamboo Facial, and uses organic products that are chosen for their added wellness benefits to nourish and promote overall healing to the face and body.

Guests are encouraged to sit back and enjoy the day taking advantage of the luxurious accommodations provided with each service to rediscover themselves.


Our treatment menu is a reflection of Far Eastern philosophies of health and wellness. Team members are committed to 5-star service and continually strive to improve the lives of others and themselves. We invite you to join our oasis of serenity inside The Lodge of Four Seasons.
