Attraction details
Owner description: Nestled into the warm confines of the Wickaninnish Inn, Ancient Cedars Spa overlooks the open Pacific Ocean and is Tofino’s premiere oasis of relaxation and well-being. A full range of body therapy, Thalassotherapy, skin care, esthetics and more is offered in seven welcoming spaces where our international staff will customize each treatment based on your individual references. Inspired by traditional First Nations cleansing techniques the Hishuk Ish Tsawalk Awakening Treatment is highly recommended as are the variety of side by side options, we also welcome intimate groups and bridal parties. The Ancient Cedars Spa experience is enhanced with an oceanfront patio, comfortable men’s and ladies lounges with showers, a Bouvier Hydrotherapy Tub and a eucalyptus steam room, available on its own, or as a finishing touch to a treatment. We utilize a range of high quality, naturally-inspired products including Vancouver Island’s own certified organic Seaflora Skincare and the results oriented Comfort Zone face and body products line from Parma Italy. We recommend starting a beautiful Tofino day with semi-private yoga instruction for optimal restorative balance, offered daily in the welcoming Rainforest Haven room. Enter with peace, leave with tranquility at Ancient Cedars Spa.

“Best massage ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

While quite pricey, the hot stone massage is pure bliss. The treatment left me feeling much more relaxed and was balm for my tired, aching muscles. Isabelle was an excellent theapist, giving me many tips for better health. The whole experience is well worth the money. Having experienced massage therapy in many parts of the world, I have never had a better massage anywhere!

“It's as good as they saw”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Wonderful spa experience, tasteful changing and shower area, excellent steam room, nice foot soak before treatments. My husband and I had side by side couples massage and both therapists were outstanding. Very peaceful spa interior, everything smells of cedar. Two eagles sat in a tree outside our treatment area. Overlooks the beachfront at the Wick. Book early. A little spendy but worth it.

My husband and I stayed at the Wick Inn and on our last day we treated ourself to a treatment each. It isnt cheap but it is worth the money. You do have to book months ahead.

“Hot stone massages from heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

Ever since my first hot stone massage in the Cedar Santuary I've been ruined for all future visits to different spas. The practitioners take you to a state beyond relaxation while listening to real ocean sounds right outside. You leave feeling like a million bucks. It's a bit pricey but an extensive experience that is worth every single penny!
