VANCOUVER — Fairmont Pacific Rim has launched the Nordic Spa. The outdoor thermal spa is a transformative healing experience, immersed in nature, offering full-body rejuvenation and restoration.
Located on the hotel’s sixth floor pool deck and surrounded by harbour and mountain views, the Nordic Spa invites guests to journey through extreme temperatures with two cold-plunge tubs and a cedar plank sauna. After the self-guided cycle, guests can rest in areas with sofa lounges, surrounded by fire pits and patio heaters.
As an extension of the hotel’s holistic self-care offerings, one-hour yoga classes are offered on Thursday and Saturday mornings in the warmth of the heated pool deck by local industry-experts. A menu featuring comfort-food dishes and creative sips is available daily. Highlights include slow-cooked chicken bone broth, warm truffle grilled cheese, Thai chicken-coconut curry, espresso martinis and a selection of champagne and wine.
“Combining exposure to hot-and-cold environments in a circuit has numerous benefits to your body and overall well-being,” says Spa director Kim Carmichael. “A few key benefits include stress reduction, detoxification, muscle and joint pain relief, improved circulation, skin health, enhanced immune system and improved sleep.”
