“will never return”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

Worst spa experience ever. Booked for 3 and was told we were not on the list. ( It had been confirmed and was for a special event.)No one seemed to care or offer to work us in at all. Asked to talk to manager and never heard back even after repeated calls. Will not return. Staff looked disinterested and unhappy.

“Great experience and some good values”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2007

SpaEthos is a wonderful day spa in Vancouver. It has a relaxing atmosphere and professional staff, and has some good value treatments.

As mentioned by the first reviewer, you can use the steam room every time you go, and they offer complementary makeup application after your treatment.

The Look Better Naked treatment is absolute head-to-toe bliss, and costs only $100 or so! It involves a body scrub, body mask, scalp massage while the mask does its work, and then a body butter massage, including hand and foot massages. They even rinse you off on the bed so you don't have to get up.

I also tried a reflexology session which I wasn't too crazy about, but it could just be that I don't like reflexology.

The only drawbacks to this spa are that the change room is much too small and that the pre-treatment room has you sitting directly across from other patrons and can be a little uncomfortable unless you like to chat quietly with strangers or hide yourself in their interesting books.

“my favourite vancouver spa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2007

A beautiful, calm spa in the heart of Kitsilano: very gracious staff, and with every treatment, you can use their private steam room. I go there for the best massages in town, and recommend all their body treatments. A great spot to slow down and relax.
