“Relaxing & Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We got a spa gift card over the holidays and went here. The facilities were excellent and the staff were professional. In addition, we went in the winter and there's something very beautiful about the snow covered surroundings amidst the hot springs themselves (the walkways are heated so we were also able to go around barefoot). There's also a little café for a snack if you plan to spend a few hours here.

“Excellent facilities and services; Stay all day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Not your typical spa. This facility is set apart on the side of a hill in a secluded location a five minute drive from the core of the Whistler Village. The Nordic baths are plentiful, creative and really do work. You can have a light lunch or latte and, if it is not raining, you could spend the day here relaxing and finding new spots to do nothing in. Massage service was excellent, helpful staff overall. Well worth the time and investment to destress and do something a little different.

“Pretty Spot but Management Ruins the experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I have been to Scandinave twice and it is well over priced for what you actually receive. They do not seem to care about customer service and going above-and-beyond even when you are paying a premium for a massage that normally costs $60 less anywhere else. It is crowded and your basically bathing in other people's filth or chemicals to kill the germs. Staff and Managers never go out of their way to make it a perfect experience and if you bring something to their attention they will not fix the issue.

Once again, thank you for sharing your opinion. I am available to discuss your visit via email or in person at your own convenience.

“Wonderful, but avoid Saturdays if you want true relaxation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This was our second time visiting Scandinave in Whistler. We went last summer and it was amazing! The surroundings are beautiful, the spa is very clean, and the staff are lovely. We could not believe how relaxed we were while we were there, and the only reason we left when we did was because we got hungry for lunch! We could have stayed all day. We went again recently and were, unfortunately, disappointed that the "no talking" rule was not enforced this time. There were several groups of people talking and laughing loudly while we were there. However, the spa staff were apologetic and helpful when the issue was brought to their attention, and we appreciated their response and solution they offered us. We will definitely be visiting again!

“Relaxing and refreshing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

This was my husbands first time in any spa and he enjoyed it immensely. I also thought it was excellent. We both had deep tissue massage and the therapists were great. I thought I would not be able to handle the cold baths but found them invigorating and the time goes by so quickly. We could easily spend 5 hours here and the mountain views are gorgeous. I liked the silent environment as it was respectful to other people -- this is very rare in North America nowadays.

Unfortunately I forgot to bring sandals so please remember to bring your own sandals for the showers if that makes you more comfortable.
