Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Pacific Rim

Vancouver serenity and a spectacular terrace
Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Pacific Rim occupies the entire fifth floor of the modern Forbes Four-Star hotel in downtown Vancouver, encompassing 8,500 square feet of treatment rooms, fitness facilities and lounge space. While the spa certainly pampers hotel guests, it draws a significant Vancouver clientele, too, with nearly 80 percent of its clients coming from the surrounding community.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• An expansive terrace — one of the nicest in the city — offers views across the Burrard Inlet to the North Shore Mountains. On the terrace, you’ll find a coed infrared sauna and two whirlpool tubs where you can soak and enjoy the city vistas.

• Adjacent to the check-in desk, you’ll find a boutique, where many of the signature products — including the Ener.g line, which Kerstin Florian created for Fairmont’s Willow Stream spas — are sold.

• A nail salon has three stations for manicures and three for pedicures. Makeup applications, featuring Jane Iredale mineral products, are available as well.

• Several of Willow Stream Spa’s signature treatments incorporate west coast products and complement the Vancouver area’s active outdoor ethos.

• Spa staff follows up treatments with a philosophy of “food, water and rest." Flavored waters, nuts, dried fruit and wellness teas are available in each of the spa lounges.
Things to Know
• For something more substantial, order beverages or meals from the hotel’s dining outlets. The bento box lunches, including sashimi, sushi and Japanese-style salads from the lobby-level Raw Bar, are particularly popular.

• A daily-changing selection of fresh juices and seasoned fruits are brought to you post-treatment, so you can lounge a little longer.

• If you’re short on time, opt for a quick stress-relieving massage of the shoulders, neck and scalp.
The Treatments
• The 90-minute Van Active Body Treatment combines exfoliation with geranium, pine and ylang-ylang herbs with time in the steam room and a detoxifying massage using juniper, fennel and lavender oil.

• With the Coastal Mountain Body Wrap, you’re rubbed with a mixture of warm maple butter, cocoa and shea butter and then massaged with maple lotion to rejuvenate your skin and relieve sore muscles.

• If you were overzealous on your outdoor adventures, consider the Stay-Active RX Back Soother, in which a mud treatment is applied to the back with moist heat; then, you’ll enjoy a pressure-point back massage, along with a foot and scalp massage.

• Several treatments are designed specifically for gentlemen, including the 60-minute Men’s Get Fit Facial, which includes a cleansing mask, an exfoliation, a facial massage and an LED treatment using Kerstin Florian’s K-Lift Technology to improve muscle tone.
The Facilities
• Relax before or after your treatments in front of the fireplace in one of three lounge areas: one for women, one for men and one coed.

• Among the nine treatment rooms are two couple’s suites, including a deluxe unit with a soaker tub for two overlooking the waterfront.

• Both the women’s and men’s changing facilities house a steam room, and the ladies’ area has a hydrotherapy experience shower with 20 different shower heads.

• In the spacious fitness room, open daily and around the clock, work out on up-to-date treadmills, stationary bikes and ellipticals, or use the Kinesis pulley-based training system.
