5 Things To Do at Willow Stream Spa

Discover 5 of Our Favourite Treatments at Willow Stream Spa This Spring

Banff National Park has been a wellness destination for decades and it’s easy to understand why. Soaking in the healing mineral waters, connecting with nature, breathing the fresh mountain air and taking a break from the day-to-day – Banff is the perfect place for it all. Wellness is all around you in the Canadian Rockies and nowhere embodies that more than Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Banff Springs.

With dozens of custom massage treatments, facials, body wraps and a variety of healing waters, Willow Stream Spa is sure to leave you feeling refreshed, restored and ready to take on your next mountain adventure. With so many amazing options to choose from, we thought we’d narrow it down to some of our favourite treatments that are perfect for a spring spa day!

While a trip to Willow Stream Spa is always a good idea, spring is the perfect time to refresh and renew – here are our top five things to do at Banff’s best spa this season:


This treatment is like a juice cleanse for your skin and what better time than spring to do some deep-cleaning! This specialized facial was designed to address all skin types and reverse environmental signs of aging. The treatment is a comprehensive detoxification for your skin featuring unique purifying products, powered by fruit enzymes, purple clay and essential oils. The facial focuses on deep cleansing of congested pores and will leave your skin feeling refreshed and restored.

2. wild about rose body scrub

This full body scrub begins with a nutrient-rich exfoliation of finely ground rosehip seeds to refine and renew the skin. The experience is completed with an application of velvet body lotion combined with rose geranium and rose-flower oil cultivated in the interior of British Columbia to regenerate and deeply moisturize the skin. There’s no better way to reinvigorate your skin after a harsh winter than with this one-of-a-kind 60-minute body treatment.

If images of a plush robe and mountain tranquility are already dancing around your head, go and and book your next spa treatment here. You deserve some me-time!

3. Glacial reflections facial

Enhance your mountain escape with this locally-inspired facial, ideal for all skin types. A rosehip tea and an aromatic pine footbath relax and prepare you for a balancing rosehip facial massage, a moisturizing masque and a temple and scalp treatment performed with glacial globes. This experience is as unforgettable as a trip to Banff itself!

4. majestic blue body treatment

The colour of glaciers, rivers and the sky, blue carries connotations of peace and tranquility. Blue also underscores this healing spa experience at Willow Stream Spa. Featuring organic mountain lavender (also known as ‘blue magic’), the treatment includes an invigorating mineral-salt exfoliation, a luxurious wrap and massage with organic essences, including the scalp & feet. Your body will thank you for taking the time to relax into the majestic blue!

Banff Local’s Tip: There’s nothing better than a post-ski or hike spa visit! We recommend scheduling a relaxing treatment after a day of mountain adventure – you won’t regret it.

5. take a dip

No spa experience is complete without a water element and Willow Stream Spa specializes in just that! The 40,000 square foot spa features three waterfall treatment whirlpools, ranging from cold to hot, an indoor mineral pool and an outdoor whirlpool overlooking the glorious Canadian Rockies for you to unwind in. In addition to the numerous pools, guests can also enjoy the sauna, steam room or the eucalyptus inhalation room to reap the benefits of this serene alpine sanctuary.

A restorative soak is good for the soul and the perfect accompaniment to any facial, body treatment or massage at Willow Stream Spa.

P.S. If you’re looking to spend your spa day with a special someone, we’ve got just the thing! Side-by-side massages are available in our recently renovated deluxe couple’s treatment room. See the full list of spa services here!
