Located in Parksville, British Columbia, on beautiful Vancouver Island, Tigh-Na-Mara Resort has been a seaside retreat for tourists and locals alike for over thirty years. The resort is situated on three kilometers of sandy, tidal flat beach, making it some of the warmest ocean waters to swim in during the summertime in the entire country. During all months of the year, guests relax in the property’s expansive (20,000 square-foot) Grotto Spa, which is the number one full-service spa in Western Canada. The spa’s most famous attraction is its Grotto Mineral Pool, which all spa guests receive access to on the day of their treatment.
Designed to emulate a natural stone grotto, this 2,500 square foot warm water pool is infused with natural minerals and trace elements which detoxify the body and rejuvenate the spirit. The Grotto Spa Mineral Pool includes a two story waterfall, an invigorating glacial plunge cascade and a non-mineralized whirlpool. After a treatment or dip in the Mineral Pool, guests make their way to the third floor Relaxation Lounge to relax by the fire in their robes and sandals as they enjoy complimentary teas and fresh fruit. For a unique dining experience available exclusively for guest of the spa, try Endless Tapas at the Grotto Spa’s Treetop Tapas & Grill, overlooking the surround forest.
