Meet the Team

We are a small, but mighty, boutique day spa located in the heart of Whistler village inside the Pan Pacific Village Centre Hotel. We love to spoil our clients, and if you want to check out our trip advisor reviews you will see we offer some of the best facials and massages that our clients say they have ever had! Those are some raving reviews we love to keep true to. While we are a smaller location and can’t offer the bells and whistles of a fancy relaxation lounge, what we lack in some amenities, we MORE than make up for in the quality and price of your service.  You also receive access to the hot tub, pool and sauna shared with the hotel, so bring your suit and we’ll get you a robe and slippers, towels and a locker. The hotel facilities are available for use before or after your treatment. We look forward to meeting you and spoiling you rotten 🙂  Check out our last minute deals here drop your kids at day care and come let us take care of you for a change!

Home Care Tip: 
Always take your makeup off before bed! This gives your skin a chance to repair and refresh ready for the next day. I tend to break out too if I don’t properly cleanse before bed so a good pm night care routine is essential.
