Relaxation at your doorstep

The spa is located in the resort, Parq Vancouver— just steps away from the vibrant core of Vancouver’s entertainment district. With its new spa concept, the hotel and its amenities JW make’s for an unmatchable Vancouver staycation destination.

The Spa 

The spa is perched on the 17th floor of the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver, so the views are hard to beat. But, we guarantee the treatments will be what you’re writing home about when your staycation comes to an end.

Pamper yourself at the salon

The spa offers a variety of services including massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, hair treatments and more. Plus if you’re looking for a romantic staycation, you and your partner can enjoy each other’s company during a side-by-side couple’s massage.

Escape reality in a Mind Sync

If you’re in the mood for some self-care, this next one’s for you! Mind you almost anyone could benefit from this innovative treatment.

In addition to salon services, the Spa by JW offers Mind Sync sessions, a form of vibrational sound therapy that was originally used to treat PTSD in military veterans. 

The biggest benefit? Just one session has been proven to reduce anxiety and stress in an overstimulated mind. During these sessions, guests sit in zero gravity chairs, where noise-dampening headphones, sound waves and music are used to soothe and quiet brain activity. Ie. the perfect treatment for those who are in need of an escape from the hustle and bustle of life in the city, without actually leaving it. You can reset with one of six different Mind Sync sessions, including a 20 minute Neo Nap and a 25 minute Emotional Reset.

Also, did we mention that there’s a whirlpool? After your treatment you can take a stroll onto the terrace — where you can enjoy the hydrotherapy tub and lounging area. This space also allows you to take in the breathtaking views of Vancouver’s natural beauty.

Embark on a Wellness Journey

These 100-minute sessions will leave you feeling like you’ve entered another dimension. These luxurious treatments are 100 minutes long and take you through a head-to-toe experience—from bespoke massages to cleansing body wraps.

Guests of the hotel can also enjoy access to the hotel’s restaurants, bars and casino, all under the comfort of one roof (and while in their robes via room service, if they so please). Or, if you’re looking for more of a one-day experience, the hotel’s amenities are also open for Vancouver’s locals and visitors alike.
