Check Out This Sea-Based Treatment in Vancouver

Visitors to Vancouver Island, Canada, can take a deep dive into the local seascape with the Salish Sea Vitality ($255, 90 minutes) at Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Empress. This seaweed-based experience uses ingredients culled from the area by Diane Bernard, known as The Seaweed Lady, using her Seaflora line . It kicks off with a smoothing and revitalizing scrub followed by an antioxidant- and vitamin-rich mixture of Sea Kelp Lotion and Seaweed Gel in a nourishing Wild Seaweed Chamois Wrap. A scalp massage completes the head-to-toe journey through the region’s coastal waters. “Fairmont Empress has undergone a stunning restoration,” says Jill Harris, director of spa. “With the reopening of the Willow Stream Spa, we wanted to create a series of local spa treatments that really highlighted the best of Vancouver Island.”
