With a focus on finding your energy, Vancouver’s only Willow Stream Spa was rated one of the ‘Best Spas in the World’ by Condé Nast Traveler readers. Surrounded by breathtaking city and harbour views, the expansive 8,500 sq ft resort-style spa is an oasis of serenity, located on the fifth floor at Fairmont Pacific Rim. This stunning retreat offers nine spacious treatment rooms including a couples’ suite with a Japanese-style deep seated soaker tub, nail salon, steam rooms, experiential shower, a full fitness centre, and a movement studio. Two of the private relaxation lounges have cozy fireplaces while the third, reserved for men is club-like in its décor and has an oversized television. French doors open to private outdoor landscaped terrace with Jacuzzi, infrared sauna, loungers and fire pits – perfect for guests to relax and rejuvenate pre or post their spa experience.
Treatments, a full sixty or ninety minutes, take place in rooms that reflect Vancouver’s sea and sky with soft colour palettes of blue and dove-gray. The air is softly scented with a hint of pine, reminiscent of a day in the forest. Fluffy terry bathrobes and slippers cocoon guests during their spa journey, with soft linens and oversized duvets used to tuck spa goers in – following treatments, guests are met with an energy revitalizing house-made juice.
Willow Stream Spa features treatments designed to highlight the locale where they are situated – and created with a focus on the following three categories: relieve, restore or results. For Fairmont Pacific Rim, signature options utilize truly Canadian products, and the Stay Active RX program is perfect for getting in shape, recovering from the Grouse Grind, or life’s ‘daily grind.’
