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.

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.

5) Scandinave Spa Whistler

Located just past Whistler Village, the spa is known for its stunning outdoor Nordic thermal baths used for hydrotherapy. An effective way to release tension and toxins, hydrotherapy is an ancient practice that involves running through a hot-cold-relax cycle. All treatments come with access to the pools, saunas and steam rooms or you can pay just to use them.
