Super, Neighbours in British Columbia:
Harrison Hot Springs 4 of 5 – The Spa


Welcome to the latest series of Super, Neighbours blog posts where we highlight incredible travel destinations in British Columbia!

In the past 3 posts we’ve taken you to Harrison Hot Springs thanks to the kind folks at Tourism Harrison Hot Springs who hosted us for a winter weekend. In PART 1 I introduced you to the quick 90 minute drive there. PART 2 was a look at our totally sweet accommodations at Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa. PART 3 gave you a look at the incredible meals we ate.

Now PART 4 is about the Spa part of the Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa. But to introduce you to it I first have skip ahead to PART 5 briefly and let you know that saving PART 5 for last has been ABSOLUTELY KILLING ME! PART 5 is all about an incredible fishing adventure that I had with Tony Nootebos of the BC Sportfishing Group. I will save the details of this epic adventure for my next post but must let you know that I spent an entire half an hour wrestling with a fish. When I got off the boat my muscles were so sore and I was blessed to be reminded that I had a massage scheduled about 15 minutes later.

Of course, greeting me on the door of the spa was a fish. Not the variety that I caught, but I still thought it was a good omen.

And inside its doors the Spa was as relaxing and rejuvenating as you would expect it to be. I applied a similar rule to my “don’t shoot photos of people in their bathing suits in the Hot Springs” that I spoke of in a previous post, only in the spa the rule was “don’t take photos of people in their robes”. So I didn’t take any photos inside save for this one in the room that I got my (totally awesome) massage in. It’s a fine detail that I’ve never seen before.

You know how when you go and get a massage they’re usually like “Strip down to your underwear and just leave all your crap on this plastic chair we’ve got in the corner”? Well at this spa they have these sweet wooden frames on the wall that they get you to hang all of your clothes on instead. A very small detail, but it was really cool so I thought I’d share.

Okay, seriously… PART 5 is going to be about fishing and it is going to be insane. I hope you are prepared for the awesomeness.
