The Grotto Spa at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort is the #1 Spa in Western Canada, offering Signature treatments that go beyond the expected. We are one of the largest spas in British Columbia, with 21 Treatment Rooms, a Nail Care Room featuring 5 deluxe whirlpool foot spas, a full service Hair Salon and the Treetop Tapas & Grill Restaurant. Dedicated to providing intimate experiences for individuals and couples, we also specialize in 'social spa-ing', catering to groups and corporate business. Our 3 private 'Suites for Two' were designed with couples in mind and feature hand crafted copper soaking tubs, plush treatment tables and fireplaces. Spa guests receive complimentary access to the Grotto Mineral Pool on the day of their treatments. Designed to emulate a natural stone grotto, this 2,500 square foot warm water pool is infused with natural minerals to detoxify and rejuvenate the body. After treatments, guests are invited to the Relaxation Lounge in their robes and sandals to enjoy fresh fruit and a selection of teas and coffee. For a unique dining experience, try Endless Tapas at the Treetop Tapas & Grill, overlooking the surrounding forest. With 20,000 square feet of spa bliss, we give relaxation a whole new meaning.

As I was in the locker room I could hear the loud waterfall out in the pool area which is very soothing however within seconds I... More

The atmosphere was impeccable with the Rock and glass wall waterfall and the change rooms that held any necessities one may require. The staff were friendly and welcoming as well as informative. In the waiting room there was water, tea and fruit. I loved the... More

Upon booking a large group of 7 or 8 for the dip and dine we were told we would have a private room due to our size...which was great. However, we were not told that our meal would be served on large platters which we would all individually have to split up with each dish. We were also not told... More
