We're on a mission to find the most unique and bucket list-worthy spas in B.C. and it's getting full of contenders. The next time you feel like treating yourself, we've got you covered. There's a surreal oceanfront spa in BC that has hidden pools inside a sandstone cave and it's like nothing you've ever tried before.
Located on Vancouver Island, the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa is a three and a half-hour drive from Vancouver.
Deep within the hidden grotto, you'll find several different pools you can enjoy as part of the Pacific Mist Hydropath treatment. Over one hour, you'll get to enjoy a relaxed state of bliss.
The guided service is truly one of a kind. You'll have eight different areas that you will get to explore, including a river walk and steam area.
Unlike regular hot tubs, here they have tidal baths carved out of the rock. Each is the perfect size for one person and helps to leave your skin feeling refreshed.
There are also larger steamy mineral pools where you can go with friends. A romantic jetted tub surrounded by candlelight will help to relax tense muscles.
You might not expect it, but within the cavern are even waterfalls!
There is an energizing glacial fall along with a steaming version perfect for massaging your shoulders.
Once your treatment is over, you'll still be able to enjoy the outdoor heated swimming pool, steam room, and infra-red sauna.
Access to the other spa facilities is complimentary for one hour before or after your spa session.
You also won't want to miss relaxing in their lounge area. It is the perfect spot to read a book and enjoy the breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains before you go.
Do you want to try this spa for yourself? Grab a reservation. It's $95 a person, or $107 Monday to Friday, including lunch.
