The Westin Bayshore Vancouver and Vida Spa have partnered and, this fall, will debut a 5,000-sq.-ft. spa on the hotel’s lobby level.
Vida spas blend the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda with Western healing philosophies. In addition to offering traditional therapies, the Westin Bayshore spa will house areas designed for couples massage, Ayurvedic cleansing and infrared sauna treatments. Vida Spa at The Westin Bayshore will operate seven days a week commencing in the fall 2009. This will mark Vida’s fifth Ayurvedic-based spa in the region.
Located on picturesque Coal Harbour, adjacent to Stanley Park, the hotel has undergone an extensive transformation that redesigned guestrooms, outfitting them with flat-screen televisions, updated work spaces and stylish seating. Amenities include an on-site gym and indoor and outdoor pools.
