When most people think of Whistler, they think of adrenaline pumping adventures and outdoor activities. Yes, Whistler is all of that, but did you know there are over 20 spa facilities in Whistler? Their offerings range from luxurious full-body pampering to flawless treatments from Whistler’s top estheticians. While it always feels nice to treat yourself, it feels even better after a day of crisp mountain air and thrills.
Here are just a few of our favourite spas and treatments…
Scandinave Spa is probably the most well-known spa in Whistler because their offerings are so unique. Hot and cold pools, steam room, sauna, solarium, fireplaces, tea stations and a massage building are scattered in the tranquil forest of Whistler. Most spa go-ers spend a few hours alternating between the traditional Nordic hot, cold, relax cycle for the full hydrotherapy experience.
Favourite: the eucalyptus steam room – I know you can find these anywhere but starting out the day with this steam makes your head feel clear and set to enjoy and relax the rest of the spa experiences at Scandinave Spa.
The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge
The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge is a boutique spa in Whistler. It feels as though the cozy, open, and refined spaces are private and just for you. They offer a wide range of skincare treatments and are all done with high-quality products. All treatments include complimentary use of the stunning mountain view rooftop hot tubs, eucalyptus steam room, cozy robes, and sandals.
Favorite: Ask about the new innovative truBody treatment – think of all the gains of an intense workout without any of the strain, and in a safe, controlled environment. Sounds intriguing!
Come to the Fairmont for the mountainside access at the Vida Spa. Their services range from massage treatments to facials, to body wraps, and more. They also offer one-on-one restorative yoga sessions for anyone missing their yin practice while traveling.
