The Most Luxurious Spas on Vancouver Island
Cool temperatures, shorter days, and the holiday season just around the corner, makes now the perfect time for indulging in a relaxing spa getaway. Feel energized and refreshed following a hydrating facial, a relaxing massage, or a body wrap, with many locations offering deluxe on-site accommodations. Though the island is home to many spas, those listed below provide a true sense of luxury – a day at the spa you won’t soon forget.
Here are five Vancouver Island Spas you must try.
Pacific Mist Spa & Hydropath, Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa
Overlooking the Strait of Georgia in Courtenay, BC, the Pacific Mist Spa at Kingfisher Oceanside Resort, is the only island venue offering a ‘Hydropath’. Complimenting a robust spa menu, the path is a recreated West Coast Shoreline featuring sculpted caves and pools. Immersed in calming and natural seaside elements, the Hydropath provides all the benefits of hydrotherapy including remineralization, detoxification, and relaxation.
Drift Spa, Black Rock Oceanfront Resort
During storm watching season, Drift Spa, located in Ucluelet, offers next level relaxation as powerful waves roll and surge in the near distance. Looking out windows that face the sea, you’ll unwind with a wide array of rejuvenating and restorative body and skin treatments. Proudly using a Vancouver-Island made, nutrient-rich, certified seaweed product, Seaflora, the spa is a tranquil sanctuary offering an indulgent retreat.
Grotto Spa, Tigh-Na-Mara
The Grotto Spa, located in Parksville, is perhaps the most unique of all the Vancouver Island spa experiences. Offering over 20,000 square feet of spa space, the man-made Grotto with underwater music and cascading water, is cavernous and calming. Though the Relaxation Lounge, located on level 3 is worth a visit, better yet is the on-site tapa restaurant. Perhaps the only place you’d feel comfortable in spa-attire including your robe and slippers, the Treetop Tapas & Grill, compliments your spa time with an exclusive and rare culinary experience.
Willow Stream Spa, Fairmont Empress
With early arrivals always encouraged, the Willow Stream Spa likes to welcome guests with an indulgent ritual. To open-up, cleanse, detoxify, and warm the muscles, spa-goers start with a Finnish-style sauna, a steam inhalation room, followed by a dip in the mineral pool. The spa menu provides an array of services including scrubs, wraps, massages and more. And, with a newly renovated hotel space, a perfect visit might include Tea at the Empress or a snack from the Q Lounge.
Boathouse Spa, Oak Bay Beach Hotel
Perched on the edge of the Salish Sea, the Oak Bay Beach Hotel’s outdoor, heated pool, is nestled amongst a rocky bluff. With steam emanating from the hot tub and mineral pool, the warmth will welcome you while you take in the oceanfront seascape in front of you. The Boathouse, located between the pools and the hotel, offers a full spa menu including body scrubs, facials, massages, manicures and pedicures.
