There is nothing like escaping all of your day-to-day stress and sinking into a hot spring to help relieve your aching muscles. Here in B.C., we are fortunate to have so many amazing spas to enjoy. However, this hidden spa grotto in Banff is unlike anything you've ever seen before.
Inside the Fox Hotel And Suites, there is a secret pool within a cave that you need to experience.
When you arrive at the hotel, you'll quickly notice there is a strange hole in the courtyard. If you take a peek below, you'll get a bird's eye view of the hot water underneath.
Entering the below-ground cave, you won't believe your eyes. Here, you'll find rock covered walls with steamy turquoise water all around you.
The entire area is a dreamy oasis that is designed to look like a natural hot spring. You'll hear the soothing sound of water trickling over rocks, and see a warm glow of lights all around you.
The underground setting makes this hot tub feel genuinely surreal. You can soak in the water with your friends, lounging next to giant rocks that are in the water.
It would make an excellent destination for a romantic getaway too.
Unlike many other spas in B.C., it doesn't get overly crowded here. To access the hidden cave, you'll need to be a guest at the hotel.
This awe-inspiring oasis is surprisingly affordable for a stay in Banff.
If you reserve a room in advance, you can secure it for as low as $126.65 per night for two people.
Or, if you are travelling with a group, you can get a room that fits four people from $160.65.
For just over $40 per person, everyone gets a place to stay and access to the unique below-ground pool.
On top of that, the whole group gets free breakfast, and even Banff Roam bus passes if you want to do some exploring.
