The Grotto Spa at Tigh-Na-Mara
There are great reasons for Grotto Spa holding the number 1 spot in Canada. The setting is soothing from the moment of entry. Waterfalls cascade down walls in the halls and in the mineral poolroom where a sizeable pool has intimate and separate strategic seating to absorb the detoxifying minerals. A cool but not arctic shower is tucked into the stone wall on route to the large Jacuzzi. Alternate between them before your spa treatment, which may be selected from a full menu. The signature massage incorporates refreshing sprays, oil and hot wet towels that cocoon the face.
Stay in your robe after your treatment and proceed to the Treetop Tapas & Grill next to the relaxation lounge. Enjoy the endless tapas menu with water and wine to further wind down and restore your energy simultaneously. Nine small plates are delivered in no particular order filled with flavorful gourmet concoctions including scallops, duck, haddock, lamb, oysters, meatballs, mushrooms and more. Make it through the whole parade of plates for the palette and reorder whichever ones you want to repeat or call uncle if you get too full to complete the whole round and dessert will then be delivered. This is when you remember like you did five minutes ago, how lucky you are – too blessed to be stressed, filled with Grotto gratitude. If you are a spa lover, you gotta go to Grotto.
The Grotto Spa is located within Tigh-Na-Mara, a seaside resort in Vancouver Island.
The endless beach at Tigh-Na-Mara is perfect for leisurely strolling or jogging. At low tide, beach combing is reminiscent of the salt flats in Cape Cod with little tide pools teeming with life to examine. From the bright pink sunrise to the full tide and sunset behind, this 22-acre resort manifests a peaceful, healthy lifestyle. Cedars and Arbutus (a replenishing tree) fill the grounds for shaded walks. Tennis courts, a fitness room, pool, laundry facility and Cedars Restaurant and Lounge are convenient amenities at Tigh-Na-Mara where Vancouver Island’s temperate climate may be enjoyed year round. Across the expansive bay, the mountains of Whistler loom in the distance, all part of Super Natural British Columbia.http://www.tigh-na-mara-seaside-spa-resort.com
