Vacations should be about rest and relaxation—and what says R&R better than a luxury visit to one of the best day spas in B.C.? A trip to the spa can make any weekend special. They make for a perfect bachelorette activity or date night, or just a special gift to reward yourself for getting through a tough year!
These are some of the best day spas in B.C. and what we love about them.
Vancouver, B.C. Day Spas
Breathe Spa is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver on Granville Street, near enough to walk the waterfront before or after your spa day. Their luxury packages range from 3.5 – 5.5 hours and include your choice of services, including things like hot stone massages and Hawaiian organic body scrubs.
Sabai Thai Spa is located right by Vancouver’s famous Sea Wall, so be sure to get in a walk or bike ride around the harbour while you’re in the neighbourhood. They have 4 spa packages to choose from but what makes them really special is that they offer enhancements—ALA add-ons—for things like
Kelowna, B.C. Day Spas
Namaste Day Spa is just off the highway on Gordon Drive, so even those just passing through can’t miss it! They offer a 3.25 hours “half-day” spa package: a classic customized organic facial including exfoliation and extractions, sixty-minute massage with flowing Shiatsu, and a pedicure including nail care and a sea salt scrub.
Amora Day Spa is located within downtown Kelowna, right near the waterfront as well as the bridge to West Kelowna (perfect for those choosing to stay on that side of town). Set aside 2 or 3 hours to visit them for a full body massage, relaxing facial, body wrap, or mani-pedi. Or all of the above!
Victoria, B.C. Day Spas
Emerald Day Spa is located on Cedar Hill Road and received numerous accolades from Black Press for Best Day Spa (2018, 2019) and Best Skin Care Clinic (2020). They have a really cool package for “Spa Parties/Private Parties” that lets you book the whole establishment for events like weddings, birthdays, or stagettes.
The Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Empress is, as the name implies, attached to the Fairmont Empress and offers guests of the hotel access to a pool area and steam room. It was ranked as one of the top spas in Canada by Condé Nast Traveller and is one of the most popular Vancouver Island spas. Non-hotel-guests can still book in for a spa service, which includes everything from massages, facials, body scrubs, and more.
