Winter is here, and all you want to do is curl up in your bed, drink some hot cocoa and watch Netflix all day. I understand - I'm the same way. I know that getting out of your bed and facing that cold, dry Alberta air feels unbearable, but trust me, it will all be worth it if you end up at the spa afterward!
I myself haven't spent too much time at the spa, but the few times I have gone have been glorious occasions. There's nothing better than totally relaxing while someone else pampers you, whether they are massaging you, giving you a manicure, or tinting your lashes.
One thing that might hold you back from checking out a spa is the price. I know the struggle - I've been a broke university student before too. We're here to help though! The following is a list of spas all over Alberta that offer amazing services for under $70. What's stopping you now?!
The Solara Resort & Spa is located in beautiful Canmore, so not only will you be getting rejuvenated by your wonderful spa treatments, but you'll also be feeling amazing after spending some time up in the rocky mountains! For under $70 you can treat yourself to a manicure - I know I always feel so much better when my nails are looking their best, so here's to hoping you do too! You can also treat yourself to an eyebrow shape and tint so that you're ready to go, makeup-free first thing in the morning!
The Red Earth Spa is another hidden rocky mountain gem, located in the Banff Caribou Lodge. For under $70 here, you can treat yourself to a Classic Manicure, a Prompt Pedicure, and a variety of waxing and tinting services! After your day at the spa be sure to go spend some time soaking it up in the Banff Upper Hot Springs.
The Bodhi Tree Spa can be found in the small town of Canmore, and sometimes, a day in a small town is just what you need to get your relaxation on. Here, you can get yourself a Lotus manicure or a gel manicure, both of which will leave your hands looking and feeling soft, supple, and ready to hold in time for Valentine's Day.
We all know that most of Alberta's best spas can be found in the mountains, and this one is no exception! At Mountain Wellness & Day Spa you can get yourself a massage for a specific body part of your choice, a reflexology session, a Reiki session, or a foot detox, all offered at under $70! There's no denying it, here in Jasper, you've got affordable options.
The Spa Ritual is easily one of Calgary's most popular spas, and once you see for yourself just how amazing their service is, you may understand why. Get yourself a lemongrass manicure, a variety of waxing services, or some eyelash and eyebrow tinting (I highly recommend this, especially if you like some extra sleep in the morning), for under $70!
This beautiful spa can be found at Banff's very own Fairmont Springs hotel. If you're looking to feel like an absolute queen for a day, this is the spot to go - no doubt about it. Access to the entire spa for guests of the hotel is just $69 (or if you purchase any spa service apart from a manicure or pedicure, you'll gain the same access as well).
There's no denying it - when it comes to spas in Banff, you've got options! Perhaps one of your best options though would have to be the Meadow Spa and Pools. It's located at the Moose Hotel and Suites, and for under $70 you can get a variety of waxing and tinting services that will have you feeling ready to take on the world again!
