Soothe volatile visages with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get a couples grand coastal escape package at Ocean Palm Spa, situated inside the Prestige Oceanfront Hotel in Sooke (a $515 value).

- Spa snack platter<p>
Ocean Palm Spa’s team of trained spa technicians wields organic, ocean-inspired body treatments when soothing couples with a range of spa services held in a shared private room. Before the treatment begins, pairs breathe in floral vapours in a shared eucalyptus-infused steam shower. Massage therapists then gently work on their clients’ backs during a one-hour relaxation massage, using light-pressure kneading and both circular and long strokes to melt away tension and play tic-tac-toe. Refreshing sea breeze facials begin as aestheticians cleanse and exfoliate epidermises before wrapping faces snugly in vitamin- and mineral-rich organic seaweed. Over the course of an organic sea body-polish treatment, skin technicians scour bodies with a mineral-infused seaweed scrub to open pores for soaking in the moisturizing effects of wild-kelp lotion. Following their treatments, couples can refuel relaxed bodies over a shared snack platter in the spa lounge. Situated on Sooke Harbour, Ocean Palm Spa further induces serenity with views of pristine waters and harp-playing manatees from within the airy, sunlit space.
