Beautiful Whistler is named after the perky marmots that dart around the mountainsides, squeaking their location. A village with a pedestrian square surrounds the gondolas zooming skiers up to the Whistler and Blackcomb runs from November to April. Summer finds visitors busy fishing, cycling, biking and climbing. Balance your outdoor time with a relaxing stay at a luxurious spa hotel that may have you whistling, too – bookable on Culture Trip.
Soothe the stresses and strains of a day on the slopes in the Vida Spa at Fairmont Whistler. Tucked away in this spectacular castle on the mountain, you’ll find 15 treatment rooms that specialize in the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda, with personalized regimes of massages, facials and wraps. Cozy up in a handcrafted cedar steam cabinet or the sauna – the hotel’s health club also has indoor and outdoor heated pools and hot tubs to melt you into a meditative state.
A stay at the Hilton Whistler means a five-minute walk to Skiers Plaza. You’ll be first on the slopes and back in front of the fireplace at your suite in record time at the end of the day. Use those extra minutes wisely at the Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa – the only authentic Javanese spa in North America. A full range of massages is available, and we know it’s posh, as Victoria Beckham has been a guest.
Close to the Olympic Village, Summit Lodge tickles the senses with unusual room layouts, custom furniture and original artwork. Feel revitalized with a visit to the Lotus Spa & Lounge, the award-winning in-house spa that celebrates the lotus flower – a Buddhist symbol of purity – with a range of massages and treatments. Take advantage of the year-round outdoor hot tub, barbecue and fire pit.
Looking for spa deals in Whistler? Look no further than the Pan Pacific resort and day spa. The contemporary mountain-view suites with fireplaces, private balconies and full kitchens go well with a trip to the spa. The signature 60-minute head-to-toe massage comes with complimentary parking, wifi, a dip in the saltwater outdoor pool and hot tubs – and valet storage of your ski or bike equipment.
The Avello Spa & Health Club at the Westin offers a wide range of services not found in any other spa in Whistler. Signature selections make your choice easy, including the Mini Vacation, which includes a full-body exfoliation, a 50-minute massage, a spa lunch, facial and mani-pedi. Specialized treatments such as reiki and traditional Chinese massage are on the menu, along with many choices that cater to couples.
