Chill out in style on Pender Island with an aromatic spa treatment at a high-end resort.

Ring up a mobile masseuse for a treatment at a B&B. Take a yoga class. Or utilize the services of a local bodyworker in vanquishing the muscular knots and tensions of workaday life.


Wedding parties, resort guests, and drop-in hedonists are pampered in the six treatment rooms at Poets Cove's Susurrus Spa. A long and diverse menu of treatments includes massages, facials, body wraps, exfoliations, manicures, and skin care treatments. The spa is located in Poets Cove's main lodge.

Valentina Atton offers aromatherapy massages, reflexology, Reiki sessions, and other healing treatments at her own White Tara Healing Arts & Spa in Hope Bay. Try a seaweed wrap, foot detox or a four-hour luxury spa package. Another option: The Spa at the Driftwood Centre.
