If you’re a work-hard / play-hard kinda gal, then Whistler serves you well. Full of action-packed activities from skiing, to biking to mountain climbing – it sets the stage for anything adventurous…but what you may not realize, it’s also a huge play-hard / rest-hard destination. Lazy days by the pool or a trip (or two) to the spa are more than welcome, and really should be experienced, because like everything in Whistler, luxury is a priority and customer service is their forté. You will be pampered like never before, whether you’re a momma that has 1 hour to yourself (me!) or an adrenaline junkie needing a reboot. It’s the perfect way to start or end a trip.
Here are my recommendations for the TOP 3 Spas in Whistler:
If you’re looking for luxurious body treatments, the Avello Spa & Health Club provides the ultimate oasis. Located in the heart of Whistler Village inside The Westin Resort Whistler, Avello offers a full spectrum spa experience including massage, body wraps, hydrotherapy, facial treatments, etc. I had the opportunity of trying the Full Body Exfoliation + Detoxifying Moor Mud Soak and it was pure bliss.
On my next trip to Whistler I plan to try the Hot Rock or Thai Stem Massage, said to be their most popular services.
Plus, if your spa experience exceeds $100, you have full access to their Health Club, which includes their renowned indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub, eucalyptus steam rooms, sauna and gym.

If you forgot to schedule your mani/pedi before your Whistler trip (again, me!), your go-to place is Be Beauty! They also offer a range of services including tanning, waxing, tinting and lash extensions. Group bookings are also available if you’d like to schedule a girl’s day out or bridal party! I actually had an appointment for a mommy and me manicure with my 5 year old, but had to cancel last minute. They were extremely kind and I look forward to sharing the experience with her next trip!

Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa
If you’re looking for a unique and ultra-relaxing experience, the Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa will take your Whistler trip to the next level. Located right inside our hotel at the Hilton Whistler Resort, Taman is the only authentic Javanese Spa in North America.
Offering a full spa menu including deep tissue massage, facial treatments, reflexology pedicures, etc., the exotic Indonesian vibe is something to be experienced.

*Bonus – I highly recommend stopping by The Whistler Tea House following your Spa experience…and definitely try their Roiboos Chocolate Coconut Chai paired with a gluten-free oatmeal cookie! Then sit for awhile and enjoy :)
I hope you have an opportunity to visit Whistler soon and take a little time for yourself! Feel free to ask me any questions regarding our trip in the comments below or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. ♥
