Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Pacific Rim was recently featured in The Upsider, an Australian-based lifestyle publication dedicated to helping busy professionals uncover the best, featuring content on food and drink, arts and culture, travel and entertainment. The article, titled ‘Sumptuous Spas Making a Splash in Western Canada’ featured Willow Stream Spa for the amenities, outdoor spa terrace and the recently launched ‘Fountain of Youth‘ package.
“The majesty of Mother Nature is at its most obvious in the Western provinces of Canada. British Columbia, Alberta, Vancouver Island, and the Canadian Rockies exemplify just how powerful and transformative natural beauty can be, particularly for travellers looking to tend to their mind, body and soul. Some of the best wellness retreats and spas in the world can be found here. Weary travellers are invited to leave their everyday stresses behind and rejuvenate the spirit, surrounded by Western Canada’s incomparable sights and sounds.
If you’re heading to British Columbia, chances are your entry point will be Vancouver, long considered among the healthiest cities in the world. Famously active Van City is surrounded by iconic outdoor adventures and thrives on a world-class food scene that encompasses everything from top-quality seafood to a progressive vegan dining scene. Although there are plenty of places to feed your stomach, there’s just as many to feed your soul.
Head down to Willow Stream Spa at waterfront property Fairmont Pacific Rim to take advantage of their steam room, infrared sauna, rain spa shower, and outdoor spa terrace with meditation pods. One of the best wellness retreats in the biz.
Or opt for the recently introduced ‘Fountain of Youth’ wellness journey, a package that combines the heights of an exclusive helicopter journey over Vancouver, through the Tantalus Mountain range, and onto the base of the remote Serratus Glacier, with a premium alfresco picnic. Guests then return to the spa for the ultimate 120-minute body treatment using all-natural indigenous ingredients in products inspired by the ocean, rainforests and mountains. The ‘Fountain of Youth’ journey also includes cocktails at the hotel’s Botanist Bar, a six-course tasting menu, and overnight accommodation.”
