Willow Stream Spa
Find Your Energy at Vancouver Island’s Most Luxurious Spa
Our opulent Willow Stream Spa is truly a palace of pampering. From the minute you step into the lobby, with its turn-of-the-century elegant pillars, chandeliers and inlaid marble floors, you’ll know you’re in for indulgence of the royal kind. Renewal is our aim, so expect to leave rejuvenated, energized and ready to face whatever challenges life brings.
While the hotel is closed for mechanical upgrades, our spa remains open from 11:00am to 7:00pm Thursday – Sunday with a separate entrance on Humboldt Street.
All guests may enjoy our Spa Ritual – a Steam Inhalation Room, Finnish style Sauna, and soothing Mineral Bath. This experience is recommended prior to any spa treatment to prepare the body for total relaxation and nourishment, or to relax the body after exercise. The Spa Ritual is complimentary with every spa experience. We suggest:
- 5 minutes in the Finnish Sauna
- 5 minutes in the Inhalation Steam Room
- 10 minutes in the Mineral Bath
- 10 minute rest in our soothing Lounge
Willow Stream Spa Services
Ours is a tranquil, adults-only sanctuary of mind-body wellness, for women, men and couples. Arrive early to slip into your plush robe, find your centre and take your sweet time with the complementary Spa Ritual: detox and relaxation in the steam room, Finnish-style sauna and mineral bath whirlpool. The spa offers a comprehensive menu of services: from re-energizing body scrubs and aromatherapy wraps, to massage, detox, regeneration, facials, manicures and pedicures. Inspired by the island, its pristine forests and ocean, we use only the finest in natural, locally sourced ingredients, like seaweed harvested from the Salish Sea. See Spa Treatment Menu.
