I’ve spent the last four months exploring the Resort and the amazing amenities we offer, but one has always eluded me: the Natural Springs Spa. I know we have a spa (we do); I know the location of the Spa (in the lobby); I know the people who work in the Spa (a bunch of people who know relaxation); but I don’t have a clue what happens in the Spa. It’s time to learn. It’s time to venture into FHSR’s best kept secret.

Natural Springs Spa: The Resort’s Best Kept Secret

 

I’ve spent the last four months exploring the Resort and the amazing amenities we offer, but one has always eluded me: the Natural Springs Spa. I know we have a spa (we do); I know the location of the Spa (in the lobby); I know the people who work in the Spa (a bunch of people who know relaxation); but I don’t have a clue what happens in the Spa. It’s time to learn. It’s time to venture into FHSR’s best kept secret.

I’m not going to lie, it was a little nerve-racking when I booked myself in for a facial and a pedicure. I mean, I’ve never hesitated to venture outside my comfort zone and some might say – hi mom – I’ve skirted the edge a few times, but the Spa? I never thought I’d see the day. But here I am, so let’s do this!

SpaKatie & Kim greeting me at the door

Katie, one of our 3 Aestheticians, met me in the cozy waiting room and gave me a run-down of what’s in store. She explained that first up is a facial cleanse to help promote exfoliation; followed by a scrub and peel; and finally, an Algae mask rich in vitamins and minerals. In the midst of all these things that are completely new to me, I also receive a head, neck and face massage; finally something I understand. At this point I’m mildly lost, but I trust her judgment and we start the treatment.

The treatment was extremely relaxing and comfortable. I could tell immediately that here at the Spa they love what they do, they’re good at what they do, and they love offering a place for men and women to unwind. All of my hesitation went out the window and I knew I was in good hands…literally.

After my facial, it’s time for the pedicure. I never thought my horse-riding; golf-ball kicking; beach-going feet would ever get this kind of treatment. It felt incredible during and after! At this point Kate Frew, the Spa Manager, popped in to see how I was holding up. Kate talked about the many treatments offered by our Natural Springs Spa, which include: massage therapy, facials, pedicures, manicures, wraps, toning, tinting, couples retreats, waxing, mud baths, and more.

Had I not been ducking out of work for this treatment I could have also enjoyed the many amenities offered free of charge to all Natural Springs Spa guests including: access to our guest-exclusive natural mineral hot pool, sauna, hot & cold plunge pools, gym, towel service and change rooms.

Before long we were talking sports and drinking a nice cup of tea. I loved it and I’m hooked! What an incredible experience and honestly one I can’t wait to repeat in the future. If you want any more info about the spectacular experiences at the Natural Springs Spa just give them a ring at 250-345-6007. You might even see me there.

    This is soooo cool! That’s the spirit David!
    Koodos (and not Hoodoos 😉 to you and i love your sens of humour.
    This is totally inviting, fun and such a creative way to leave a super impression…
    I have been to FHSR “one” time, few years ago and that is definitely not enough.
    Hoping to go back sooner than later… The pools and the view are…beyond amazing.
