“Vida Spa is a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

If you're lucky enough to be staying in or near the Westin Bayshore...the Vida Spa is a must.
The amenities are spacious and well appointed and the Deep Tissue body massage is the best I've ever experienced. Highly recommend it for locals or tourists.

“Mess up my appointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

Sadly I have not recieve any treatment simply they mess up my Thai massage appointment for two in a different location. What upset me is they ask me to walk?! To the location they set up the massage and the best they can offer (after i ask of what they can do)is to call a cab for me to get there! Given that I've made my trip to get there paid my parking and ready to pamper myself and my loved one, this is just a disappointment. The lady let us to cancel without any penalty at the end but surely it is an unpleasant experience.

“Relaxing and pampering 5*”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2013

Instanly upon arrival I was greeted by the friendly front desk staff. The beautiful smell of aromatherapy oils mixed with fresh flowers cooconed me straight into relaxed mode. I was directed to the changing area where I changed into a fluffy white robe and slippers.Relaxing for a bit in the lounge,the lights were all dimmed and the sofas had plush cushions and blankets (To be honest I would have been happy to spend my time here)

I had booked in for a 60min facial. When I was booking I was not sure what type to pick so the front desk staff reccommeded I just book the amount of time I would like and that they would leave a note for me and my therapist to discuss my skin issues. (I loved this suggestion as I am clueless to all the different styles of facials) I met with my esthetician Melissa and we went to get started.

The room itself was so nice and comforting but it was Melissa that really made my experience so great. We chatted a little bit about my skin and she suggested that we go ahead and try the hydrating facial (the winter was bad to my skin!!!) As Melissa started the facial she spoke to me a little about the products she was using and giving me some tips, honestly after a short few minutes I zoned out completely- I was too relaxed to even hold a conversation. Too soon the time was up was Melissa gently woke me.
She gave me a little time to gather myself and said she would meet me outside in afew minutes and I was brought back to the relaxation area
After lounging for a bit it was time to get back to the real world.

I really noticed a huge improvement in my skin in the following few days, so I called up the Spa and spoke with front desk to pass along a message to ask what type of products Melissa had used on me and if she could send me her reccommendations again. Sure enough by the end of the day Melissa herself had emailed me a few product reccommendations and what she thought would be the best for me to use. Sure enough I bought them and have never looked back.
Overall it was one of the best experiences I had in a Spa in along time and am now a regular whenever I get the chance.

“High price - good massage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2012

My wife and i went here because we were staying at the Sheraton. We were greeted quickly by a friendly attendant and given keys to a locker where we changed into our robes and slippers. The waiting room was quiet and restful. The permission forms we signed said we were ok with a body work person and that the masseuse was not licensed. A little scary but I can not tell the difference. The masseuse did a good job. They spent the full hour with us. Afterwards, the waiting room had water, juice and light snacks. There was no rush to get us out. Afterwards we bought some of the oils we used. We each paid $135 plus tax and tip. Because of the price, I would shop around nearby, but this is downtown Vancouver.
