Escape from the kids for a few hours. Opt for a massage while your partner plays golf. Or enjoy the hands-on treatment after participating in one of the region's many outdoor adventures. Your muscles will thank you for the kind of dreamy full-body experience that only a Qualicum Beach and Parksville spa retreat can provide.
Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort & Conference Centre immediately set itself apart from other Vancouver Island spas when it opened its remarkable 2,500 square-foot Mineral Pool at the Grotto Spa. The third floor features couples suites, lounge areas, and the Treetop Tapas & Grill spa restaurant makes the Grotto the largest resort spa in British Columbia. Lush vegetation, a two-storey waterfall and faux rock walls gives the space an otherworldly atmosphere. Float happily in the buoyant waters (which contain 80 kilograms of minerals imported from the Savar Springs of Hungary), then cool down with a bracing cold shower. Slip back into the Mineral Pool for more of the same, or head off for an appointment in the adjoining complex of treatment rooms.
The Pacific Shores Resort's answer to relaxation and rejuvenation is the AquaTerre Spa. Picture an oceanfront setting featuring botanical gardens, outdoor ponds, and luxurious treatments that use only the best that nature has to offer. AquaTerre's signatures include its Bouvier hydrotherapy tub and their "Just for Him" and "Just for Teens" treatments.
Aquaterre is known for their B.KAMINS Diamond Radiance Facial that instantly softens skin and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles with light-reflecting diamonds. The Guinot Aromatics Facial is also new. It's made up of 10 selected plant concentrates combined with 5 super-concentrates of essential oils that together operate synergistically for maximum benefits to the skin.
