Hotel with Sustainable Spa near Whale Watching on Pacific Northwest Island

Just off the coast of San Juan Island, you can often see congregations of Steller sea lions jump up atop the jutting rocks, yelping at boats. Beginning in April, orca whales will start to migrate through the surrounding waters. Residents of the isle have learned to live in harmony with the rugged environment and diverse wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. Earthbox Motel & Spa encourages its guests to explore this area; you can rent complimentary beach-cruiser bikes from the hotel and see the island's wildlife trails and pebble beaches.

The Earthbox's sustainable spa harnesses the healing powers of nature to soothe aches and pains with hot-stone massages, wraps, facials, and reiki therapy. Groupon customers will receive a 20% discount on spa services if they book them seven days in advance. After a dip in the heated indoor pool or jacuzzi, you can oust toxins and clear up sinuses in the onsite sauna.

The rooms have a natural color palette that reflects the wilderness outside. Water Place rooms feature one queen bed with a jetted bathtub or a mini deck. Earth Place rooms, meanwhile, are more simply decorated and feature two queen beds.

San Juan Island, Washington: Rolling Hills, Quaint Towns, and Striking Fauna

Chugging ferries, weathered fishing boats, and whale tour boats crisscross Friday Harbor's bay, San Juan Island's largest port. A handful of the historical buildings date back to the town’s founding in 1909, though they now assume new identities as eclectic eateries, indie bookstores, and chic coffee shops.

Renting a kayak at the harbor can help you get an up-close view of the area's local marine wildlife; depending on the season, orca whales, porpoise, and sea lions can be seen making their way through the chilly waters surrounding the islands.

Just north of Friday Harbor, you can taste different varietals and enjoy barrel tastings at San Juan Vineyards, which is open year-round.

Customer Reviews

We received great customer service. The group on promotion ended, I only had one night, and I ended up getting there very late, so I wasn't able to take advantage of all they had to offer. But they stayed up to welcome the last ferry, had everything waiting with information for exploring. The local soaps were wonderful and the room was great. I appreciated them accepting my dog and the welcome information for him.
