5 places to pamper yourself on your Tofino wedding weekend

Tofino itself tends to be a relaxing place. Beach walks, surfing, comforting snacks, beautiful views. Sometimes, you need more than that. There’s nothing like having healing hands give you the full restful experience you need, especially before the big day.


Here are the top 5 places to pamper yourself on your wedding weekend (or any other time!):

  1. Sound Skincare

Owned and operated by Rylee, (actually one of the sweetest people in town) Sound Skincare focuses on facial treatments with a natural and holistic approach. She is a licensed esthetician, and is certified in Pastiche Advanced Skin Analysis. So she knows how to use science to identify the root cause of skin problems (magic!). She is also certified in microneedling, an anti-aging modality that produces new collagen and ellastin, resulting in full skin rejuvenation. Skin firmness (fine lines and wrinkles), texture (scarring) and hydration. Again, magic! Sound Skincare is located right in downtown Tofino.

2. Ancient Cedars Spa and Steam Cave

The spa, located seaside at the Wickanninish Inn (North Chesterman Beach) is beautiful with some unique treatments, but the steam room is the real gem. Unless you know someone, this is the only one in town. Give your pores a warm vacation! Sometimes I like to have a cold(ish) shower afterward to close up the pores and bring my body back to perfect temperature.

3. Breedom Massage Therapy

Breedom is an adorable and relaxing massage therapy space located downtown, Tofino. It’s brightness and vibe make you feel like you’re in a cozy cocoon of soft pillows and warm tea. They have a great roster of massage therapists with various backgrounds and specialize in sports therapy and other massage methods.

4. Hot Springs Cove

This place. It is so beautiful, and the water is hot! There are a couple of ways to get there. One is to fly, which is about a 20 minute flight and you get beautiful views of the coastline and mountains. The other is to take a boat. It is around 1 hour to get there and there are some gorgeous little zones and caves you can see from the boat. Sometimes you can see whales! The pools are a 25 minute walk down a boardwalk and the pools cascade down to the sea. The pools get cooler the closer to the ocean they get. At a higher tide the bottom pool gets some sea water rolling in. It’s very refreshing! It is a super fun option for the whole bridal party and if you take a boat, it is around 6 hours roundtrip.


5. Sacred Stone Spa

This spa that has some great packages to offer, especially for the day before your wedding day. They offer a large amount of services, including an infrared sauna and eyelash/eyebrow tinting.
