When resort guests want vacations from their vacations, the quadrilateral Beyond Wrapture Mind and Body Care transports them out of the country. The four spas have no airports, however—instead, they’ve simply named and modelled their spaces after coveted destinations. Both the Coast Capri Hotel and Big White Ski Resort embrace a meditative asian theme. Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa’s Manhattan room and Central Park pedicure stations evoke New York chic, whereas Lake Okanagan Resort Spa pairs its shoreline views with Moroccan-inspired baths and palatial treatment areas.
Despite their distinct designs, the spas share a common aim: simultaneous pampering of the body, mind, and soul. And although they mimic faraway settings, their services prioritize homegrown ingredients blended into their own essential oils, scrubs, and lotions for specialty procedures. Vinotherapy massages, for example, harness the healing properties of grape antioxidants with formulas made from local winery byproducts, including grape stems, skins, and pips, and overripe grapes that are about to mature into apples. The massages pair well with such luxurious services as honey-wine wraps and Okanagan grape-pip scrub.
Natural Beauty Salon & Spa’s eight stylists pamper their clients with custom cuts and colours, working in tandem with a specialized team of aestheticians and laser technicians. The technicians wield Chromogenex’s Phaser EPL machine, whose beams can permanently reduce unwanted hair, rejuvenate skin, or combat acne. For more hands-on treatments, aestheticians can massage aching muscles, manicure nails, and add glittery accessories to smiles without bedazzling old retainers. Visitors can complement their new looks with finds from the salon’s shelves of accessories, which spotlight purses, scarves, and statement jewellery.

Serenity Aesthetics Laser & Advanced Skin Care helps both men and women beautify their bodies.

The expert aesthetician at Beauty From Within believe in the importance of feeling beautiful both inside and out. In order to help their guests achieve that feeling, they offer a handful of services such as body contouring and skin tightening. They also perform photorejuvenation and microdermabrasion treatments which aim to improve skin texture and elasticity.
From deluxe cucumber-mint manicures to yoga-like Thai massages, treatments at the Spa at the Delta Grand Okanagan are designed to soothe both body and mind. During the Pure Heaven package, for example, guests unwind within a fragrant chocolate-truffle body wrap before a signature facial and a healthy lunch in the relaxation lounge. The staff pampers faces and bodies with the Éminence Organic Skin Care line, whose natural ingredients are handpicked and hand mixed in small batches. After their spa session, guests enjoy complimentary use of the hotel's fitness facility, steam room, and hot tubs.
Though aloe is generally considered a necessity for already-tanned bodies, Body Mist Tanning introduces a new twist on the adage, offering spray tans that bronze bodies with aloe-based formulas. Yes, the salon’s two Mystic spray-tanning booths mist bodies with this naturally based substance, which takes minutes to apply and, much like the morning sun, reaches its darkest point in about 12 hours. The tanning spa also pairs its traditional bronzing services with a slew of cosmetic and relaxation-oriented services such as massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
