Exquisite wellness resorts

Hot stone massages, panoramic saunas and soothing whirlpools: there’s nothing more relaxing than enjoying a day of wellness. Vancouver Island is the perfect wellness destination. Most of the spas here are located amidst the island’s overwhelmingly beautiful nature. How about soaking in a bubble bath in the middle of a rainforest? Or enjoying a sauna with ocean views? These are only a few of the possibilities.

Unwind at the Wickaninnish Inn

Unwind at the Wickaninnish Inn

Wrapped in kelp

The Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino is one of the most idyllic hotels on Vancouver Island. In the Ancient Cedars Spa, the hotel offers treatments based on the cleaning rituals of the First Nations people, including a seaweed scrub and water therapy. And, instead of a mud treatment, you can get rubbed with kelp, a sea plant primarily found in the waters around the island. Enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean waves crashing against the rocks from your massage bed.

Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa

Waterfalls and tidal baths

The power of water is unprecedented. The people at Kingfisher Ocean Resort & Spa are well aware of this fact. The main attraction at this wellness centre is the Pacific Mist Hydropath. You follow a path along a simulated coastline through 8 different baths, caves and waterfalls. The route starts in the Swiss Shower, where water jets clean and warm your body. You then enjoy a mineral massage bath, a waterfall that relieves tension in tired shoulder muscles, and an aromatic steam cave that cleanses skin. After this, the Glacial Waterfall is a welcome rush of cold. The path continues to the River Walk, where alternating hot and cold baths stimulate blood circulation. In the Sea Mineral Soak, you float light as a feather in a tidal bath carved out of rock, where you enjoy a home-made sea salt scrub to remove dead skin cells. After so much wellness, you can relax and enjoy a fruit smoothie or herbal tea in the lounge, while enjoying the fabulous ocean views.

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort

To the sauna by plane

A spa that can only be reached by plane or boat has got to be unique. And that is exactly what the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is. This resort is an enclave of luxuriously furnished canvas tents with remote controlled fireplaces, opulent rugs and beautiful bathrooms. You can heat up in one of the relaxing saunas or wood-fired hot tub or enjoy a massages or treatment in a tent at the edge of the rain forest, as you slowly drift into dreamland to the singing of birds and rustling of trees.
