April 8, 2009 – Double the Pleasure in Double the Space Victoria’s Spa Magnolia Expands
(Victoria, British Columbia) — Spa Magnolia has nearly doubled in size, now boasting an elegant street entrance, eight treatment rooms, and a spacious lounge - allowing for twice the number of Victoria travelers and locals to enjoy relaxing bliss at Victoria’s Magnolia Hotel. Spa Magnolia’s new location is on the main floor, with access near the four-diamond hotel's lobby entrance on Courtney Street, steps away from the city’s best amenities.
Guests discover an oasis of tranquility upon entering the spa, leaving behind the stress of deadlines and hectic schedules. The power of touch is the cornerstone of Aveda spa philosophy. Synergy between ancient wisdoms with modern science creates an integrated path toward health and well being. Every treatment is customized to each person’s specific needs recognizing the body’s instinct to choose aromas required to restore balance within the body. The Spa Magnolia actively practices green management within the spa and supports local environmental initiatives, echoing the Magnolia Hotel’s own policy of sustainability.
Owner Paula Veenema insists it’s about going above and beyond for guests. "If you are experiencing a facial, while the mask develops the therapist performs hand and arm as well as foot and leg massage. It’s really defining the difference between a service and an experience, and this is what creates lasting memories.”
Embrace the change of season with Spa Magnolia’s Spring Wrapture, infused with locally harvested lavender. Treatment includes a personalized body masque and hydro therapy. The Seasonal Wrapture Spa Package consists of luxurious overnight accommodation, Continental Breakfast and 75 minute Seasonal Wrapture to revitalize and refresh, with prices starting at Cdn$259 (about US$210).
The Magnolia Hotel & Spa, with only 64 rooms, offers an unsurpassed commitment to helpful, responsive, and attentive service. Professional, courteous staff has become the unquestioned hallmark. The hotel is centrally located just steps away from Victoria’s picturesque Inner Harbour and the city’s best shops, galleries and entertainment. Repeatedly recognized by Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ as one of the top hotels in Canada, the Magnolia caters to business and leisure travelers, along with their pets.
