Stress levels melt away when you’re on the Sunshine Coast, but for those times when you need an extra dose of pampering, head to these spa and wellness experiences.

Jade Spa

This tranquil West Coast spa is located in the woods of Roberts Creek. Jade Spa specializes in Jade stone massage and offers customized facials, scrubs, and wraps. After your treatment you can walk three minutes to the beach and energize yourself by the ocean. Don’t want to leave? Book an overnight stay in one of their suites.

Sunshine Float Integrated Health

Take a load off. Literally. At Sunshine Float in Sechelt you can float weightlessly in a warm shallow pool saturated with 800 pounds of epsom salt. This experience is perfect for relieving pain and tension in your body. Or you can simply enjoy the space and time to relax while your mind peacefully wanders.

Just Skin

For glowing skin reminiscent of summer days, head to Just Skin in Sechelt. Their line of facials and body treatments, ranging from facial peels to microdermabrasion, will leave you feeling — and looking — refreshed. Afterwards, treat yourself to a nourishing lunch across the street at Nourish For You, where you can sip on detoxifying smoothies and fresh pressed cold juices.

Rockwater Secret Cove Resort

Does listening to the sound of the ocean while receiving a healing massage sound like bliss to you? At Rockwater Secret Cove Resort you can book a spa package in one of their oceanside safari-style tented cabanas, and heal your body while perched on the side of a rocky seaside bluff. Come winter, massages move indoors to the Spa Cabin, making this the perfect year-round spa experience.

Coast Flow Yoga

Coast Flow, set to open in 2022 in Gibsons, promises accessible yoga for all comfort levels. The studio space, with its wood accents, white walls and natural light, is as zen as you’re bound to be after a session of restorative yoga led by an experienced teacher. 

Shoreside Strength and Conditioning

For some, wellness means a good sweat. At Shoreside Strength and Conditioning, you can spin, squat or skip your stressed mind and body into a temple of strength. Need to take a break? Their 1,000 square-foot-warehouse also comes with views of the tranquil Sechelt Inlet, offering up the perfect spot to take five and catch your breath. 

Beyond Bliss

Beyond Bliss has been voted the top spa experience in Powell River for several years in a row. While visiting the largest town on the Sunshine Coast, book a spa experience of hot stone massage or a luminous facial before exploring the never-ending activities around Powell River.
