When it comes to some crucial TLC and self-care time, Vancouver has no shortage of options. From hot springs and massages to luxury spas and cold water plunges – here are 12 of the best spots to unwind in and around Vancouver.

Smile Thai Wellness Center

This well-loved Vancouver spot is a must-visit for massages. You can experience a Thai massage, deep tissue massage, couples massage, and much more. Plus they’re located in the heart of downtown, so you don’t have to go far for some serious R&R.

Where: 235 Robson Street

Tranquility Organic Spa 

Another convenient spot with amazing offerings is Tranquility Organic Spa in Yaletown. From facials like the “Vitamin Cocktail” to aroma massages, hot stones, and couples massages – they’ve got it all.

Where: #150 – 1020 Mainland Street

Scandinave Spa

At Scandinave, they’re committed to the ‘hot-cold-relax’ system, which is proven to release endorphins (AKA: make you feel amazing). Plus, the Whistler backdrop isn’t too hard on the eyes, either. Embrace some new adventures before summer’s end, and unwind with a Scandinavian bath afterwards.

Where: 8010 Mons Road, Whistler

Tality Spa

Another spot that’s committed to the cold water plunges is none other than Tality Kombucha – which has extended its tasty offerings with a new pop-up spa, complete with hot-cold cycling and unlimited kombucha on tap.

Where: 1481 Dominion Street, North Vancouver

The Spa at Painted Boat Resort

If you’re looking to explore the Sunshine Coast, the Painted Boat Resort is a great option to experience sauna caves, outdoor glacial rain showers, a warm saltwater flotation pool, and more. So head here for some feel-good vibes without the guilt-inducing prices.

Firstly, this spa is absolutely beautiful and unlike anything we’ve seen in the city so far. Secondly, they offer a unique Hammam and Gommage service. Which basically a steam and exfoliation before each of their massages. So you definitely need to check them out.

Where: 1495 West 6th Avenue

Halcyon Hot Springs

The Halcyon Hot Springs is a bit of a trek, but it’s totally worth it since it’s located in a quaint village with gorgeous views of the Monashee Mountains… but if that’s not already enticing enough, this place has water so pure that it’s said to actually have antidepressant qualities.

Where: Box 37, Nakusp

We all know the Shangri-La hotel is a good time, but not everyone has explored the amazing spa that’s inside. They have aromatic infinity baths, tea services, and an extensive treatment menu—so we’d definitely consider it one of the best spas around Vancouver. And if you’re looking to stay in the city to detox, this is your spot.

Where: 1128 West Georgia Street

Sense at Hotel Georgia

And finally, we’re going to cap the list with a seriously bougie spa at the Hotel Georgia. A spa experience here will cost you a few hundred bucks but if you really need some quality R&R at an upscale location, it might just be worth it. You can enjoy all your classic spa services but with elevated products and experienced practitioners.

Where: 801 West Georgia Street

If you make your way through this list of the best spas around Vancouver, we’re pretty sure you’ll become the most zen person in the city – and that’s certainly a title we’re working towards! Enjoy some prime relaxation and rejuvenation, folks.
