The Day Spa at the Wedgewood Hotel in Downtown Vancouver
The Spa at the Wedgewood Hotel in trendy downtown Vancouver opened in the spring of 2003 and has won numerous awards, including "Best Day Spa in Vancouver". It is a terrific way to unwind after touring the urbane city's museums, parks and shops. Clients do not have to be guests at the Wedgewood to enjoy a treatment here.
Begin your relaxation in the Fitness Center, which provides all the latest fitness equipment, or the Eucalyptus Steam Room.
For a limited time, the Spa at the Wedgewood will be offering a 50 min Bio-Swiss Organic Brightening Facial and a 50 min Wild Lavender Body Treatment. The Organic Facial using botanical extracts including Mallow, Peppermint, and Liquorice promises to rejuvenate skin and naturally assist the brightening of the complexion while the refreshing Wild Lavender aids in a feeling of renewal.
Anny Tu as a new member of the excellent aesthetics team. She studied Aesthetics, and Nail Care extensively in Houston, Texas where she then worked for several years before moving to Canada.
She is known for her fab pedicures and, on the other "end," a luxurious facial that leaves your skin looking and feeling amazingly fresh, reinvigorated and healthy. If you go, ask for Anny.
One exclusive treatment features the renowned Epicurean Skin Care line, made with all natural ingredients.
Signature Treatments are favorites of Wedgewood Hotel & Spa owner, the vivacious Eleni Skalbania whom I have had the pleasure to know for many years. Some of these treatments are:
~ The Signature Thai Fusion Massage -- As one of our most innovative treatments, this hybrid massage combines yoga-like stretches and the use of acupressure with deep tissue massage modalities. Utilizing an aromatic lemongrass oil this massage will soothe tired muscles while energizing and invigorating the body, says Ms. Skalbania.
Another is the Chocolát Vanilla Decadent Body Treatment -- This treatment begins with a Vanilla Brown Sugar Body Scrub to deeply moisturize and exfoliate your body, followed by a Chocolate Crème Mineral Mask rich in antioxidants and nourishing oils. Then relax in a warm comforting body wrap while you receive a soothing scalp treatment ending in a moisturizing application of Epicuren's Chocolate Crème lotion.
~ Crystalline Gemstone Facial -- This exceptional facial utilizes the energy of micronized crystalline gemstones blended with bentonite clay to create a high energy tightening, healing and detoxifying result. This facial provides instant noticeable results, leaving your skin feeling firm and smooth. Ideal for all skin types.

Wedgewood Hotel & Spa, Vancouver Boutique is one of Vancouver’s leading luxury downtown Vancouver hotels. Located amidst the gardens and waterfalls of the fashionable Robson Square in the heart of Vancouver, the Wedgewood has become a landmark. Privately owned and operated by Greek born owner, Eleni Skalbania. The Wedgewood has been a family-run boutique hotel providing a home away from home for countless guests. I highly recommend it.
