There are so many amazing places in Vancouver to choose from when you want to pamper yourself. If you’re visiting or live in the city and simply want a day of relaxation, here are my recommendations – you’ll find everything from facials to massages and manis or pedis!
1. Prep Beauty Parlour

I started coming to Prep for their lash extensions, then slowly got addicted to their pedicures and manicures as well! Their choices for polishes has all the nude shades you can dream of. Definitely worth a visit since their new space is super Instagrammable 😉
2. Bombay Brow Bar

I use to have really bad brows… and Bombay Brow Bar reinvented them. Now I can’t stop coming! I love their threading technique and they give a killer head massage afterwards. It is pricier than other places that offer brow threading, but consider Bombay for days you want to spoil yourself.
3. Minoko Nail Studio (1253 Granville St.)
If you want extra fancy nails, this is the place to go. The girls are truly artists – they can do anything from marble to more intricate designs (see my past nail designs by them here) and take pride in their work. Joy and Lisa have always done everything I requested – all I’d have to bring them is a few photos as reference.

Skoah’s facials is what got me into the habit of facials on the regular. They have many locations all over greater Vancouver and a number of treatments on their menu for different skin types, for both men and women. I recommend their facialicious facial, you’ll be glowing after!
5. Willowstream Spa at the Fairmont Pacific Rim
This is my favourite spa in Vancouver. Book one or multiple treatments and turn it into a full spa day! Their relaxation lounge is perfect for sipping on drinks and grabbing a light bite before or after your treatment. The outdoor deck has spectacular views and they have a number of other amenities you can enjoy too.
