A Chat with Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa / Madrona del Mar Spa
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Set in a beautiful island spa, on the edge of the ocean, our flotation bath helps reduce stress, manage chronic pain, and contribute to overall well-being. You will ‘free float’ in the water completely relaxing every part of your body. After: relaxing gardens & organic tea. Bliss.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We wanted to create a Spa that makes the most of its island setting: views of the gardens and ocean, natural, healthy, even “edible” products, and treading softly on the earth. Flotation Bath, Healing Earth, Steam rooms and our treatments are unique…so close to Victoria or Vancouver, just 1 hour
What do you love most about your job?
Our greatest satisfaction comes from making a difference in someone’s life: whether the Flotation therapy, healing treatments, or a stay in an oceanside room. Sharing Galiano, creating memories.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“The flotation experience was unbelievable, I cannot believe how wonderful I felt. The entire spa experience was transforming, I have never felt so well cared for. Then to return to my villa suite and its outdoor bath: heaven.”
About Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa
Ensconced in the verdant foliage of Galiano Island on a resort site dating back to the 1930s, Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa provides a calm respite with 20 ocean-side suites, outdoor gardens, and elegant dining. Spa suites with fireplaces and massage tables and villa suites equipped with an attached kitchen and outdoor bath provide views of the beach and whales on human-watching tours. Resort bistro staff serves wood-grilled pizzas on an outdoor terrace, and Flores del Iris Gardens beckons visitors into a labyrinth of steams, ponds, and native and foreign fauna with wooden decks built around natural features. Depending on the season, activities such as eco-tours, kayaking, hiking and cycling, tennis, and scuba diving grant visitors ample opportunities to explore the island and escape truancy officers.
Modelled as a European-style spa, Madrona del Mar Spa invokes the healing philosophy of its oceanic surroundings. Therapists swaddle faces, hands, feet, and bodies in natural, indigenous products harvested from British Columbia's west coast, saving clients from having to saddle a manatee and collect their own. As they assess client ailments, spa technicians administer 10 types of seaside or indoor massages, fruit-infused body wraps, and sugar-based body scrubs. Additionally, a private mineral sea flotation bath and glass-enclosed yoga studios provide ample space for alternate relaxation.
