The 5 best spas in Vancouver
Stepping into Fig feels like stepping into the Emerald City in The Wizard of Oz. This beauty stop is beautifully designed and offers top-of-the-line service and treatments, including facials, vitamin and filler injections, and skin analysis sessions.
2) Chi, The Spa
Pulling inspiration from the East and West, Chi, The Spa at the Shangri-La Hotel is a sanctuary in the city. Many of the spa treatments are inspired by B.C.’s indigenous traditions and northwest nature. The Sea Therapy Facial uses freshly harvested seaweeds, rich in amino acids and vitamins, firms up your skin and gives you a glow.
This bright and lavish spa is a Kitsilano gem. Bioéthique is completely chemicalfree, offering certified organic skin care treatments and using skin rejuvenation technology. Known best for their facials, owner Claudine Michaud has spent over two decades researching and creating organic beauty treatments.
4) John Casablancas Salon & Spas
A great spot if you’re wanting a little pampering but not wanting to pay the price. The John Casablancas Institute in Gastown has been training up some of the city’s best stylists, estheticians and masseuses since 1978. The treatments are completed by students and the spa is a little less zen but the price gives you peace of mind.
